Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,

I understand your concern.

You possibly seem to have Telogen effluvium/TE pattern of hair loss.

Telogen effluvium: Normally the majority of scalp hair is in the growth phase, with a small percentage of hairs in the resting phase being shed daily (100-200 hair shed daily).

Under certain circumstances a higher percentage of hairs cycle into the resting phase, and a woman may notice a sudden onset marked shedding.

The usual causes include stress , low protein in the diet and crash diets.

I advise you to take tab Biopreg F one tab twice a day for 90 days.

Also Tab Calcimax ISO (which contains soya isoflavones to increase the density of hair) one tab every alternative day at bedtime for 30 days.

Also consume protein rich diet with daily egg,fish,milk and pomegranate.

These vitamin and protein supplementation should bring a positive change in 1-2 months.

TE is absolutely a reversible hair problem.

You can be reassured on this.

Regarding shampoo ,I advise you to go keratin rich shampoos available in XXXXXXX

1.Organix Brazilian keratin therapy shampoo/conditioner.

2.L'oreal X tenso care.

3.Dove damage solution intense repair shampoo.

The order of priority is 1>2>3.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.
