What should I do to prevent my hair loss ?

Welcome to healthcare magic forum.

I understand your concern regarding hair loss.

Hair loss can be due to heredity, hormonal reason, stress, chronic illness, and drugs. In your age group hormones and heredity are main cause for hair loss. We call it male pattern baldness. We have to find out the reason for hair loss and treat it accordingly.

I would like to suggest following things to prevent hair loss.

1)     Avoid stress, smoking and alcohol. They increase hormones levels and adversely affect hair growth.
2)     Do regular exercise and yoga.
3)     Take green leaf vegetables, pulses and fruits. Protein is very essential for hair.
4)     Avoid using chemical products for hair.
5)     Use mild shampoo and good conditioner for hair wash.
6)     You can take biotin base multivitamin tablet for prevention of hair loss.
7)     In male pattern alopecia minoxidil 5% solution is very effective.

For giving specific advice, I would like to know about –

-     Is there any family history?
-     From which area you feel hair loss? From front, back or whole scalp?
-     Are you taking any medicine?
-     Since how long you feel hair loss?

Awaiting your response

Thank you for writing back.

It looks like male pattern baldness from your answers.

You need to consult dermatologist for proper treatment. Minoxidil 5% solution and biotin base tablet will control your hair fall.

Ayurvedic or Homeopathy treatment is not effective in your case.

I hope I have answered your question.
