Hi. It's normal to lose up to 100 hair per day, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men -- and some women -- lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, use of bore water, or nutritional deficiencies. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg, eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin), different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. Walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you fit and young! Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica hair conditioner as well after every head wash. For breathing Problem: Send me more details related to it - is it due to asthma/ bronchitis/ involuntary sighing, anemia, stress, etc. Will have to rule out the possibilities.

Shamana (pacification): Useful drugs are chandanasavam.saribadyasavam.
Care of the Skin:Twacha is the term for skin in ayurveda.Skin is a cover of the exposed parts of the body. The sense of touch spreads over the entire body through skin. As ayurveda believes that all living beings have the panchamahabhoota as it is components, same is for the skin. It is the seat of sparshana indriya. Skin is also the dwelling of bhrajaka pitta and regulates the temperature of the living body and absorbs all local medicinal application.
In charaka samahita,the charaka state medicinal plants in 'Varnaya mahakashaya'. used to obtain glowing complexion. The herbs mentioned in Varnaya Mahakashaya are -
1. Chandana
2. Nagkeshara
3. Padamaka
4. Khus
5. Yashtimadhu
6. Manjistha
7. Sariva

Before choosing any ayurvedic beauty care method, it is important to know about the body constitution (Prakariti) and the basic types of skin. Three basic type are based on the doshas Vata,pitta,kapha.
Care of the Hair :
Hair is also a part of beauty of the human beings.a hair consist of a root( the part implanted in the skin) and a shaft (portion projecting from the surface)
Ayurvedic aspect of hair:
The hair (kasha) is the waste of asthi dhatu. Hence, anything detrimental to ashthi dhatu will be harmful to the hair. Depletion of ashthi dhatu causes hair loss.
The health of hair depends on the health of the bones and skin.
The nourishment of hair depends entirely upon the rasa dhatu.Dearrangement of rasa dhatu causes hair fall and premature greying .So health of hair depends upon rasa and ashthi dhatus and on all the three doshas.

Herbs for hair care:
-Bibhitaka: The seed oil of bibhitaka prevents premature greying of hair.
-Brahmi : Sesame oil enhanced with brahmi ,kulanjana and vacha is very useful for promoting hair growth and prevents the hair fall.
-Bhringraja: The fresh juice blackens the hair. It is the best natural hair dye. The fresh juice of the leaves or sesame oil enhanced with it is useful in promoting growth of hair.
-Shankhapushpi: Its oil prevents the hair fall and premature greying of hair.
-Tila (sesame): Prepare the decoction of its roots and leaves .give hairs wash with it. It promotes the hair growth, blacken them and gives a silky texture.
-Yashtimadhu: Sesame oil enhanced with liquorice and amalaki prevents the hair fall .In charaka the term 'keshya' is used for liquorice.
-Madayantika(Mehndi): Henna is mainly used as a colouring agent. It is mixed with other natural dyes, and largely used as hair dye.
-Methika : A paste of its leaves applied over the scalp regularly before taking bath help hair grow and keep them silky.

I am 22 year male and I have suffer from hair fall. I loss my lots of hair per day. What should I do?
It is normal to lose about 30-80 strands of hair in a day. The common reasons behind hair fall are lack of essential nutrients in the body, improper and unhealthy dietary habits, hormonal imbalance, certain medications, dandruff, alopecia and other scalp disorders, stress and tension etc. Natural oils such as coconut, olive, jojoba, almond etc. Can be used to massage the scalp for countering hair fall. Gently massage the scalp prior to head bath twice a week. Also check hemoglobin for anaemia and thyroid status with serum tsh. Have more proteins and trace minerals like copper, zinc, selenium in diet. Start taking a hair nutrition supplement. Keep stress away with regular exercise, yoga, meditation. Get the underlying scalp condition like dandruff treated.
