hi..thanks for your query.
Before starting the treatment of hair loss, it is very important assess yourself completely and have an understanding of the actual cause of hair loss.There may be several reasons:
1)Hormonal factors:The most common cause of hair loss is a hereditary condition called male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness. In genetically susceptible people, certain sex hormones trigger a particular pattern of permanent hair loss. Most common in men, this type of hair thinning can begin as early as puberty.
2)Medical conditions:A variety of medical conditions can cause hair loss, including:
-Thyroid problems
-Alopecia areata
-Scalp infections
You should get a complete bloodwork done before you start the next step of treatment.However, its also important to understand that , any treatment of hair loss, in any form of therapy ,requires considerable time and patience to get optimum results.
Hope this helps.Take care!

Welcome to the forum. Hair loss is a sign of generalized weakness or due to history of past illness. You should try to improve your general health condition. Get a medical check up done to detect your fitness and deficiencies.

Eat calcium rich diet. Take mineral and protein balance it with berries, fruits, nuts, fresh veggies. Take whole wheat and dairy products. Take some vitamin supplements also.

Hair fall many a times occur because of dandruff, use selsun shampoo or any medicated shampoo to get rid of it. Inadequate blood circulation in the scalp, you should oil and massage your hair. Use laser combs to help increase blood circulation in your scalp. It will reduce hair fall and increase new hair growth.

Do not be rough with your hair, avoid exposure in bright sunlight. Good health will help hair growth in long term. If you are really impatient, you can try other therapies but under expert supervision. Take care.
