How many strands of hair do you lose in a day?
as of now, it is around 10.
but is there a chance of regrowth in the scalp
XXXXXXX it is very normal to lose 10 strands a day
I do not think you should worry about this
You can enhance the hair growth by taking care of it regularly
okay. but it was at a higher rate earlier..
so the hair density has reduced and scalp is visible
Losing hair upto 100 strands a day is normals
Do you oil your hair regularly?
once in a while
Dandruff may be the cause of your hair fall
Continue to use Selsun
Apply oil to your hair and scalp at least twice a week
You do not need any intensive treatment for this
Consume green leafy vegetables
okay. are there are treatments
if in case its needed
Treatment options are wide, but they are not required in you now
the thing is i want to know if it is safe n advisable to take treatments
As of now, you should eat healthy and take regular care of your hair as I said
This is available over the counter
and does tonsure help in hair growth
okay. ill get that
and at what intervals should i take it?
There are no studies to prove tonsure and its help in hair growth
You can take it daily one tablet after food at any meal
what bathing soap is advisable for oily skin
Can be be more specific? is the whole body skin oily or is it only the facial skin?

You can continue it as it is good for oily skin
The point in oily skin is you need to wash your face frequently to remove the excess oil

Yes, it is unbalanced diet and unbalanced hormones as well

This is common in young adults
Avoid oily food in your diet
As you grow older, the hormonal balance will stabilize and you will be fine
You should not worry about it now
Eat lots of salads as I said
my brother is 27 years old. he has also had hair loss and density is less. He wants to take up a treatment for it

It depends on the clinical assessment
It is better for him to be examined by a Trichologist and then take the decision
