One background note

Swapna is my 1991 pastime invention. I suffered from hairloss since 1965 due to heredity. I was totally bald by 1981. There was limited hair on the sides. The front and the vertex were near total bald areas. In 1990, a chemist refused to sell me a popular Indian hair gain product. That made me brood over haircare for over 9 months. I had interest and Time for the subject. More importantly, I had a nothing to bother bald head. I made the first batch of 100 ml in May 1991. After 4-5 weeks, I noticed some new stray Black hair at the front. The results were beyond my expectations. It seemed like a Dream come true product - Swapna

 

Users Reports

After 6 months use, based on the results on my head, I got the confidence that my approach is correct. I surmised that if Swapna can impact on a total hereditary bald head like mine, it would impact more on others, with lesser constraints. In 1992, Swapna was given to about 10 persons. In 1993, it was given to about 30 users and the number was increased in 1994. The response was positive.

I requested all the early users to handwrite a report mentioning their hair problem details, remedies tried earlier, Swapna's impact as noted by them after 4 - 6 weeks use and their overall single line comments. [Prior to my cataract operation in April 1993, I could not see clearly the impact on any head. Hence the need for handwritten reports. Abroad, Hair Research studies are done with 50 or less persons in many cases. So I stopped the form sometime in 1995]

One Point from the above results

Swapna controls hairloss. Tables 1 to 4. The reported cause may vary amongst users. The major cause reported was 'casual care / no time to bother'. Who has to take the blame?

 

Common Advice given to all Users

All the Users were asked to reduce / avoid shampoos. Secondly, they were advised against sporting dry hair style. These 2 factors lead to spread of hair loss in almost all cases that I came across.
