Hello Krishna,

Causes of hair fall are:
1. Environmental factors
2. Stress
3. Deficiency of certain minerals, vitamins & amino acids in diet. e.g. Iron, zinc, Vit B complex, lysine.
4. Hormonal factors. e.g. Thyroxine
5. Any incidence of surgery, shock, etc.

Management includes:
1. Treating the underlying cause
2. Avoidance of stress
3. Dietary modifications
4. Minoxidil solution to be applied locally to stimulate the hair follicles
5. Multivitamin & multi mineral supplementation

But these medications have to be used regularly under the guidance of a Dermatologist, as hair loss tends to return on stoppage of these medications.

So, it will be better to consult a Dermatologist to find out the underlying cause & start treatment accordingly.
Those cases which do not respond to medical therapy, are managed by hair transplantation.

It is believed that it is normal to shed 100 hairs each day, which is based on the assumption that the average scalp has 100,000 hairs, and 10% of these are in the resting phase.

So, there is no need to worry.
Your hairs will grow back again.

Wishing you a Good Health.
Thanks & take care.

Hi Krishna

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Hair fall can be due to stress , infection , vitamin deficiency or hormone should try vitamin supplements and treat infection if any.You should visit your Dermatologist to evaluate the extent and pattern of hair fall and treatment as per that.

Following a healthy diet , drinking lots of water , stress free life with yoga , meditation included can help.

If none work , you can opt for hair transplant which is being effective in replacing the lost hair.

Take care.
