Thanks for writing in.

Hair loss can be due to variety of causes like dandruff,deficiency of nutrients , anemia, thyroid disease etc.

Likewise treatment depends on cause of hair fall.

You should first get your blood checked for hemoglobin and Thyroid hormonal profile i.e T3,T4, TSH levels.

Also stress , pollution, faulty diet and lifestyle, excessive use of hair cosmetics/dyes/colors, hair spa treatments/straitening procedures can cause hair loss.

Also female pattern baldness is a hormonal cause of hair loss.In this type there is thinning of hair in the central partition of the scalp.

Hairs are indicator of general health.
When you improve general health hair loss will also decrease.

You can take multivitamin supplements containing zinc, biotin ,copper,amino acids etc they are building blocks for hair.

In general measures 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.

Please upload your photos of your scalp areas(2-3) with UPLOAD YOUR REPORTS section on right side of the page.

Photos will be further useful to provide specific advise.

Hope this helps you .
If you have any further queries feel free to ask them.
