Do you have dandruff ? If yes then use antidandruff shampoo.Palasha herb is very good
for the prevention of hairfall.You should massage your hair with fingers or deep combing is to be done to improve the blood circulation of the scalp.Most important thing is your diet , take lot of green vegetables , fruits and protein,Avoid spicy and junk food.Tension and anxiety can also cause hair fall so avoid it.Hard water can also cause thinning and fall of hair. If you are anaemic take iron supplements.

I have been tested in a none fasting blood test. My liver enzymes were high-no hep B or anything like that, my glucose random serum high and my neutrophils, absolute low...but in the past month I have been loosing daily amounts of hair that is not normal. My thyroid tests fine, I went through menopause 5 years ago. I eat well, exercise some, take vitamins and have changed nothing at this point in my routine or diet. I am getting really worried. My doctor says it is fine, probably seasonal, but there is something wrong, I know my body.

I think that I am losing my hair but I am not sure why or what to do. I am 22 and recently changed my diet to eat healthily and I work out doing a lot of cardio at least 5 times a week. I ve always had full, long brown hair about 2 inches past my shoulders at least but it s suddenly shorter and my hair is half the size in some places. I know that I am not eating enough for the amount I exercise which I find very hard to change as I have been obsessed with my weight for a long time and I am finally 3/4 months into consistent exercise.
