Hello user first diagnose the cause of hair fall. Then eliminate that cause. Causes can be tension, stress, sun rays, weak digestive system, bad food habits, cold drinks, fast food, lack of proteins vitamins etc. Remedies:- eat properly. Like proteins enrich food do yoga use ayurvedic shampoos only take half spoon trifla two spoon soaked white til. Take milk with 1 pinch of haldi. Apply curd in your hair before hair wash (10-15) mins eat beans and daal. Apply good oil in your hair 2-3 times in a week. Avoid use of alopathic medicine too much. Do not take any kind of stress. Avoid sun rays directly on yours head. Apply mustered oil on yours nails. Both feet and hands. Once or twice in a day.

Unwanted facial hair can be reduced using laser hair removal but the hormonal imbalance should also be treated concurrently to prevent recurrence. Usually it takes around 6-8 sessions of laser hair removal for reduction of the hair growth.

Your nail is weak. Can be due to nutritional deficiency. Though you might be having good food, but absorption might not be happening properly. This need to be addressed constitutionally.
