DEAR Dr. Fritz,

Hope you are doing great. Please call me Itchi Boy. I need help for my baldness. But, I want it the natural way -- if it's possible. I have already tried Minoxidil. It's expensive. And I didn't give me the results that I wanted. I was advised for a hair transplant. But, I can't afford it. I only want something natural to help me that would not stress my wallet more.

Thank you for your help.

Dear Itchi Boy 2021,

You are right about minoxidil and the hair transplants. They are not cheap. They're not a problem if we have those treasures in the vault. So, while we're still working for some vaults of wealth, there are natural ways that could help. But, I have to warn you -- that these ways may not be that effective as compared to minoxidil or hair transplants. You also have to have a load of patience. You can't get them overnight. However, they are worth a try. Who knows, they might work for you. You'll be earning hairs at no cost - or with just a little investment.

So, let's start the ball rolling and hope to raise more hairs -- with just some dimes.

Fenugreek

Grind fenugreek seeds with water and make them into a paste. Before you apply this fenugreek paste into your scalp, rub some coconut oil first in your problem areas. Let them stay in your scalp before you wash them. You have to do this every day for a month.

Well, as much as there are more things that you have to do, and we're out of space for now, then, let's continue this on the next episode. Until then!
