User:above 20
Doctor:Do you have any medical problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid problems?

Doctor:Are you on any medications/supplements for fitness programmes?
Doctor:Do you have dandruff problems?
Doctor:Are you having baldness?
User:i dont have dandruff problem..not like baldness
Doctor:Let me brief you now.
Doctor:Hair fall happens as a part of natural life cycle.
Doctor:As old hair is lost, new hair growth occurs.
Doctor:Approximately in a day, we expect about 100 new hairs to form.
Doctor:So any person who loses less than 100 hairs in a day does not need to worry
Doctor:as new hairs take the place of lost hairs.
Doctor:As you are losing only 20 hairs in a day, you need not worry unless you have bald issues (which you don't have)
Doctor:So my opinion in your case is that what you are facing is normal
Doctor:and you need not worry.
Doctor:Have you followed what I suggested? any oil or medicine to avoid hair falling. i think after one year i will be in bald
Doctor:If the hair fall is less than 100 hair strands in a day, you don't need any special treatment.
Doctor:You wouldn't grow bald.
User:in front of the forehead there is no hair..
Doctor:As stress and nutritional factors are important factors for hair rejuvenation, all you would need is good and regular sleep and manage your stresses well by means of exercise, yoga, transcendental meditation.
Doctor:In addition vitamin supplements such as zincovit for 2-3 months can be helpful.
Doctor:Despite these measures, if the hair fall issue worsens and your hair line seems reciding
Doctor:then you can visit a dermatologist who after evaluation can prescribe you topical or oral minoxidil
User:so can i use any oil and shampoo ?
Doctor:to reduce hair loss.
Doctor:Mixture of coconut oil and amla hair oil can be used.
Doctor:As far as shampoo is concerned any shampoo is fine
Doctor:Nizoral shampoo is good if you have dandruff issues associated with hair fall.
Doctor:Have you followed what I suggested?
