Hello doc. I am a 30 yr old working woman. I have been suffering from excessive hairfall since last 4 years. I used to have very thick hair earlier, but now, the hair is limp, falling @ 500 strands per day and full of dandruff. None of my family members have this problem. I have constipation problem. Tried Mintop 10 and 5% solutions and taken VB7 tablets for more than a year. Please suggest me something. I have started losing hope now.

Thanks for posting your query. I can understand your concern.

The common reasons for hair loss are:

Some disease of skin of scalp like dandruff
Nutritional deficiency
Environmental factors
Hormonal imbalance.

Please consult a dermatologist and get your self treated for dandruff first.

Apart from this please get some basic investigations like blood counts, thyroid hormone test, blood sugar tested after consulting doctor.

In general please try following which should help.

Protect your hair.
Cover them properly while going out
Try stress relaxation techniques
Take good healthy diet XXXXXXX in iron and calcium
Do not frequently change shampoo
Do not tie your hair very tight
Comb them gently.

I hope this helps.

Wishing you good health.
