Our hair go through 3 different stages anagen ,catagen ,telogen corresponding to growing phase/ cessation phase/rest phase.

Normally 80% of hair are in anagen or growing phase .

Daily about 100 hairs are lost as a natural process.

Out of which 50 can be seen normally by our eyes.

If you are seeing fall of 4-5 hairs while combing it is absolutely normal.

If you are having more hairfall than 50 per day then it is to be considered for treatment.

You can take a good multivitamin supplement to support hair growth.
Tablet Bi toZ is one such combination.

Also take anti oxidants and vitamin C in good amounts as they help in collagen building.

In general measures to avoid hair fall you should
- avoid stress, maintain good diet ,adequate sleep,regular exercise.Keeping good general health will add to treatment.

-Take one fruit every day.Take lemon juice and other citrous foods as they are XXXXXXX in vitamin C and anti oxidants.

-Do not comb when hairs are wet.

-Use widely spaced comb with rounded teeth(not sharp ends).

-Avoid hot water for bathing(use lukewarm water)

-Avoid hardening gels/ harsh colors/chemicals on scalp.

-Avoid direct sunexposure/heat/wind exposure to your hair.

-You can use nizoral shampoo for hair wash.

Hope this helps.

I will be available for follow up if any.
