Thanks for writing in.

For how long have you been loosing hair?
Do you remember getting sick 2-3 months before the hair loss started? Or any period of extreme physical or mental stress?

Do the hair come out in bunches when you comb or shampoo your hair?

Please answer the questions as it would help me in arriving at the appropriate diagnosis.

Awaiting your response

Thanks for your reply.

You may be having Telogen Effluvium.

It is a severe but a reversible hair loss.

In this problem, More than 50% of scalp hair suddenly go into a falling phase.

I would recommend taking Keraglo XXXXXXX tablets once daily, and Renocia Hair Revitalizing Lotion and shampoo once daily. Use this for 3 months,

You will start seeing an imrpovement in about a month,
