Dermatologist 's  Response

Thank you for posting on HCM.

I appreciate your concern regarding hair fall. Hair fall is usually ascribed to multiple factors like diet and nutrition, hormones, stress, acute or chronic medical conditions,drugs,cosmetic products etc.

From your description, it seems you might be having early stage of female pattern hair loss which is due to your hormones or tractional alopecia from constant pull/force on hair due to particular hairstyle.

If i were your dermatologist/trichologist, i would like to take through history including family history, history of recent major trauma/illness/stress/medications etc, your menstrual history and recommend some basic investigations like CBC,blood sugar,Thyroid function test.

I would suggest you a course of oral tablets containing biotin and other essential vitamins and minerals for minimum 3 months. Also, would put you on solution containing 5% minoxidil once a day and a hair serum containing peptides for hair growth at night.(Q sera etc). I would advise use of gentle shampoo and conditioner on regular basis and use of coconut oil twice a week.

Also enquire from your dermatologist about upcoming treatment options like mesotherapy and platelet-rich plasma.

Avoid combing in wet hair and let them dry by wrapping in towel. Avoid blow dryers and hair-color/dyes.

Take plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet and try to de-stress your routine life.

Hope your queries are resolved and wish you best of health.
