I am 27 years old Indian lady,married & currently in the USA since past 2 years and have been losing a lot of hair. I usually wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner without applying oil. What natural food (beneficial for hair growth) can I consume than oral tablets which could possibly have some side effects in the long run.

Welcome to healthcare magic forum
Thank you for your query
i understand your concern regarding hair loss.
Hair loss may be due to hormonal reason, heredity,drug induced ,low HB etc.
We have to find out the reason for the hair loss first.
in diet you can take high protein diet like pulses.
If you have dry hair,oiling will help you.
you can apply oil before 1-2 hours of hair wash.
topical minoxidil solution is effective in female pattern baldness.
it is better to consult dermatologist for proper treatment.
I hope I answered your query
