Hi there,

First of all, dont worry. Anxiety and stress can worsen hair loss. Try to find out the cause of hairfall. Have you shifted to a new place and the water you use to take a shower could be the culprit.Are you stressed out about some paticular incident/situation in your life. Other causes could be a low protein in your diet,if you are on certain medications,any medical conditions like thyroid disease,fungal infection of the scalp. In ladies after delivery of a baby there could be tremendous hair fall. Identify the cause.If everything is normal, just relax.Take it one step at a time. If it is water which is causing hair fall, try using drinking water to wash your hair. Drink plenty of water and eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Try using a hair cream like HIMALAYA ANTI HAIR LOSS CREAM. This may / may not work, you could give it a try though. You might have to use it for a longer period of time. Do not use harsh/ strong shampoos.

Have a nice day

First check whether it's diffuse hair thinning or you are loosing hairs from any specific patch.
Hair loss in patches can be alopecia Areata. good news is it's going to be reversible with proper medication. Alopecia Areata is sometimes self limiting.
If it's more of generalised hair fall, follow these tips and show it to your dermatologist
1. improve your diet; have protein rich diet and also iron rich .
2. Check for dandruff, use a good anti-dandruff shampoo like Arcolane twice a week for a month.
