User:hi this is AAAAA 35 years from bangalore. i never use coloring chemicals except XXXXXXX thrice a month. I have lots of hair fall whenever i do a hairwash and combing. Every weekend i do hair wash and lots of hair fall everytime. I am scared if i become bald. once i consulted doctor and had medicines follihair and haem up tabs for 6 montths course. when course got over, hair fall started again but not immediately. just after 2 montths same problem. is there any permanent solution for less hair fall or totally no hair hair fall. OR do i continue the same medicine for life long. thanks.
Doctor:Good Evening.
Doctor:I am Dr. XXXXXXX here.
User:hello doctor good evening. this is XXXXXXX here. i just have a simple query
Doctor:Please proceed.
User:i m 35 female. i have few grey hair. I was just curious to know if i can use katha with XXXXXXX to cover up grey hair with brighter shade. I do not want to use any color chemicals as i have consttan hair fall. Katha , i am talking about is the powder used for paan taken by indian people. Is this safe on hair.
Doctor:I have not come across using Katha for coloring the hair. So I would not recommend for using it.
Doctor: XXXXXXX as such is a well used substance for cloring hair.
Doctor:It doesn't have any bad effects.
Doctor:If you can get natural XXXXXXX leaves, that would be the best.
Doctor:That would help in covering the grey, keeping the scalp cool and will also reduce the hair fall.
User:i see
Doctor:Mixing with chemicals will only harm the scalp and hair.
Doctor:Within my knowledge, even the packed XXXXXXX has chemicals in it.
User:Some of my friends said red wine mixed with XXXXXXX can also give brightter shade, but not sure if wine is safe or not.
Doctor:I believe wine will make your hair drier.
User:i see.
User:I usually use XXXXXXX godrej XXXXXXX That does not have color orange al all. So i thought may this is pure.
Doctor:I am not sure of the brand. But generally, the manufacturers add some chemicals to prevent it from decaying fast.
User:i see.
Doctor:But if no fresh leaves are available, the best option would be the brand which you understand to be pure.
User:all rite! Thank you very much for the answers doctor.
Doctor:You are welcome always.
Doctor:Is there anything else I could help you on?
User:Well you have answered my queries doctor. Thanks a lot. If there is any other concern i will definitely do a follow up next time by chat. Bye Doctor.
