Speaking on the book launch Dr Akshay Batra said, “We are very excited to release this book in Malayalam today; through my experience as a tricologist I have seen that hair has a significant medical connect. By looking at hair, one can diagnose many diseases, which may otherwise go unnoticed, such as heart disease, PCOD, diabetes, thyroid and anaemia. Diabetes can be found out in a hair test before it can be found out in a blood test. Also, people have a lot of misconceptions when it comes to hair care and thus it was important to release a credible and scientifically proven book on hair care that would provide readers a simple yet valuable expert tips on good hair maintenance”

The book features the findings of a survey conducted among 4000 people at Dr Batra's to find out how they feel about hair. The results illustrate the importance people bestow to their hair and also how far they would go to retain and take care of it. According to some of the findings, a whopping 81% of women and 76% of men prefer alternative medicine for their hair loss as opposed to conventional medicine, over 70% of respondents believe bald men look 5-10 years older than their age, 85% of all respondents believe that hair is the most important aspect of their appearance and over 80% feel that baldness would affect their self-esteem and interestingly, men spend a higher amount of money, every month, looking after their hair than women ' some as high as Rs.10,000!

Apart from Malayalam, the book is also available in Gujarati and English.
