Hi Asma,

welcome to healthcaremagic forum,

hair fall can be due to stress, recent illness, heavy antibiotics, nutrient deficiency, sudden weight loss, hormonal imbalance, disturbed sleep and diet and routine.

so it is first necessary to find the reason of hair fall and then treat it.

you can apply warm olive oil mixed with arnica oil in your scalp twice a week and wash hair with mild shampoo. keep a patterned diet which is full of proteins and nutrients.

relax. along with this take homeopathic medicine Phosphorus 200 twice a day for 15 days then once a day for 1 month. u will get naturally strong and luscious lustrous hair :-) for further help contact:

Take care,

In this case you can ask the Dermatologist about Minoxidil 2% lotion which is known to bring back thick hair growth. There are various causes of hair loss, some which includes severe dandruff, fungal infection, dermatitis etc. You must eat proteinaceous food like chicken, lean meat, pulses, nuts, green leafy vegetaables as well. Drink plenty of water. Sleep for 6-8 hours a day. Avoid stress by doing deep breathing execises, Yoga and Pranayam. Kindly consult your Dermatologist about these aspects and get appropriate information and treatment.

A number of things can cause excessive hair fall. For example, about 3 or 4 months after an illness or a major surgery, you may suddenly lose a large amount of hair. This hair loss is related to the stress of the illness and is temporary.

Excess of Pitta dosha in the body is the chief cause of hair problems. Pitta is increased by excessive intake of tea, coffee, alcohol, meats and excessive smoking. Pitta is also aggravated by eating too much fried, oily, greasy, spicy, sour, and acidic foods.

Some medicines can cause hair fall. This type of hair fall improves when you stop taking the medicine. Medicines that can cause hair loss include blood thinners (also called anticoagulants), medicines used for gout, high blood pressure or heart problems, vitamin A (if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants.

Certain infections can cause hair fall. Fungal infections of the scalp can cause hair loss in children. The infection is easily treated with antifungal medicines.

Hormonal problems may cause hair fall. If your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive, your hair may fall out. This hair fall usually can be helped by treatment thyroid disease. Hair fall may occur if male or female hormones, known as androgens and estrogens, are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss.

Many women notice hair fall about 3 months after they've had a baby. This loss is also related to hormones. During pregnancy, high levels of certain hormones cause the body to keep hair that would normally fall out. When the hormones return to pre-pregnancy levels, that hair falls out and the normal cycle of growth and loss starts again.

Finally, hair fall may occur as part of an underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. Since hair loss may be an early sign of a disease, it is important to find the cause so that it can be treated.

I have been diagnosed as hypothyroid. My symptoms are numerous and I will list them as they first appeared years ago: fatigue, facial hair growth - fine fuzz all over, muscle aches, armpit hair loss, dry skin, worsening fatigue, scalp hair loss and eyebrow hair loss, EXTREME scalp hair loss & breakage, EXAUSTION, rapid weight gain, depressed? Just no desire to do anything but not weepy. Synthroid .025 mg for about 4 mos and t3for a week have made little difference. Still gaining weight at alarming rate and eating about 600calories (healthy cals. Lean protein and thecright veggies- done my research) and hair loss is astounding! Should I be changing the thyroid med to a desicated thyroid? Is the amount way too low? I know that Doctors r often afraid of high doses of the thyroid hormone? What do I do next! I want my old body and active life back!!!! This one is hell:(. HELP!
