Doctor:Let me brief you now.
Doctor:Hair fall as I said is part of normal cycle.
Doctor:It becomes concerning when one loses more than 100 hairs a day.
Doctor:The cause of such significant hair fall can be many.
Doctor:Most common reasons being dandruff, stress and inadequate nutrition.
User:can u suggest which shampoo is better
Doctor:Since you told me that you have low hemoglobin/anemia
Doctor:perhaps you might have nutritional deficiency or other causes which can be causing both low hemoglobin and hair fall.
Doctor:That needs to be assessed and treated.
Doctor:If you have dandruff associated with hair fall, then I recommend nizoral shampoo.
Doctor:It helps in most of my patients.
Doctor:You can start of with this shampoo. Use it thrice a week and follow the instruction given in the shampoo.
User:what about loreal shampoo
Doctor:I do not have personal reviews about loreal shampoo.
Doctor:If that's helping your dandruff, then you can continue it.
Doctor:I write nizoral to my patients.
User:thank u for your suggestion
Doctor:Along with shampoo, you need to eat healthy - iron XXXXXXX and vitamin XXXXXXX product.
Doctor:I think I haven't finished yet.
Doctor:If you are busy currently, you can come over to chat again.
Doctor:Are you there?

Doctor:I would add that, you need to eat healthy iron XXXXXXX and vitamin XXXXXXX products to take care of anemia and hair nutrition.
Doctor:Do not expect you to have normal hair with low hemoglobin.
Doctor:you need to correct that.
Doctor:Discuss with your doctor about the cause of hemoglobin.
Doctor:If needed you can include iron supplement such as ferium XT one tablet every day until it gets corrected.
Doctor:In addition to iron supplement, you can also take vitamin supplement such as biotin one tablet every day.
Doctor:Along with these measures, it is necessary to remain stress free - so sleep adequately and practice exercise and yoga.
