Good to hear from you.
Prevention can be accomplished only by early treatment. Sometimes what you think may be hair loss is actually just hair breakage from overuse of hair dryers, curling irons, dyes, and styling products.
If hair loss is caused by an illness, treatment of the illness is the best treatment for hair loss. The decision to treat androgenetic alopecia depends upon its emotional effect on the patient's sense of well-being.
Treatment of this problem at home is difficult. Decreasing the amount of pulling, tugging, and tension on the hair can prevent damage to the hair follicle and shaft.
Minoxidil: A medication you rub directly onto your scalp. This medication enlarges hairs and makes them grow for a longer period.It works for both men and women.
Stopping this medication can result in loss of the hair that developed during its use. Finasteride: a pill taken once daily that blocks the activity of an enzyme that metabolizes testosterone to substance that inhibits hair growth. Any regrowth is not permanent. Finasteride is not currently used for the treatment of hair loss in women.
If you have dandruff, it should be addressed. I advice you to try trichup hair fall control oil and shampoo, it is quit effective i am saying this because even i am using this.
Hope i have cleared your queries. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer.
Wish you good health.
