What could be the reason for hair loss?
You could find a million products out there stating “We could help you stop your hair loss”. Chances are, You tried a few too. Ever thought what type of hair loss you are trying to treat? Do you even know what’s the reason for your hair loss?

Question is, ‘How a disease can be treated without diagnosing it?’ First what you need to do is identify the reason for your hair loss; hair care products can give you a 1000 reasons to use their product, but they still cannot diagnose the reason for hair loss in each & every individual.

Pattern hair loss(baldness)
The most common cause of hair loss among men is hereditary hair thinning brought about by the effect of hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). This type of hair loss affects women as well leading to thinning of hair over the front part of the head .

Nutritional deficiencies – Proper nutrition is very essential for hair growth, so deficiency of proteins, iron, biotin, minerals etc lead to hair loss, hair breakage as well as reduced hair growth.

Acute illnesses – Severe illnesses like infection(viral fever, jaundice, typhoid) blood loss, trauma etc can affect your hair growth cycle. The hair fall may not be evident soon and appear 2-3 months after the illness. This can lead to alarming rates of hair fall producing severe anxiety to the affected.This is called Acute Telogen effluvium. Usually self limiting, but at times the hair loss will persist and continue for several years(chronic Telogen Effluvium).

Medication – Some of the medicines when taken for certain period can bring about excess hair fall. Especially the ones used for treating hypertension, depression, cancer chemotherapy, retinoids etc. Once you complete your medication period or stop using these meds, hair loss gets reversible and your hairs start growing again.

Internal problems – Hair loss can be a reflection of diseases affecting the internal organs like thyroid, liver, kidney etc. Diabetes and various anemias can also lead to hair loss.

Severe mental stress – Acute mental stress following death of a close relative, divorce, financial loss etc can also affect hair growth cycle which usually starts with in 2-3 months of incident.
Scalp diseases- Hair fall can also be associated with diseases affecting the scalp. Fungal and bacterial infections, dandruff, alopecia areata, lichen planus etc. can produce either patchy or diffuse areas of hair loss.

The best way to deal with hair loss is seeking the help of a dermatologist who can diagnose the exact reason for your hair fall. If you keep on wasting money on oils, shampoos or other so called products, your loss will be irreversible, both financially and psychologically.

If severe hair fall starts, it creates lots of tension and the person normally starts avoiding shampooing. But it leads to more hair damage. 1. Wash your hair regularly with some mild herbal shampoo, like arnica (min 3 - 4 times a wk) 2. If you use oil don't keep it for more then 4 - 5 hrs. 3. Eat proper balanced diet regularly. 4. Regular exercise for 30 min. 5. Go for serum ferritin level, if very low you have to take some iron supplements. Besides all these, proper homoeopathic treatment helps to maintain proper cycle of hair.

I find this one the hardest! caffeine is a diuretic, which makes you urinate out more liquid than you take in causing dehydration. Dehydration of your body and hair roots is another key reason for hair loss. Replace your daily coffee intake with a fruit beverage, milk or any other non-caffeinated drink to those shiny and healthy hair.

I am 22 years old female having a problem of dark circle from 1 month.

What is the colour of the circle. Blue, brown or black? for a lasting cure your diet must include fresh fruits and a full serving of salads at every meal: cucumber, tomato, carrot, radish, onion slices or spring onion, raw cauliflower, cabbage leaf, etc. All this is essential to give you a balanced nutrient boost. Cut out any junk food and aerated drinks totally. Generally foods that come out of a packet, or can, or bottle shud be avoided. Exercise to increase circulation:- 2 mins of hard exercise then 1 min rest - do this four times a day. You can either do it all in one go or split it into sessions through the day. In total it is only 12 mins a day so should not be a big issue. A very useful exercise is to jump in one place simulating skipping. Build up your time to 2 mins. Of jumping. In conclusion, live and eat healthy and you will develop energy, a glowing skin and a healthy'go' in life -regardless of age. Send a request for medication to help early removal of circle.

Measures To Reduce Hair Loss Diet rich in vitamins, minerals esp fruits & green leafy vegetables should be included in maximum regular exercise, yoga avoid hair dyes avoid washing hair frequently avoid vigorous scalp massage/brushing identifying causes related to stress Homoeopathic Aspect of hairfall- Homoeopathy has a lot to offer in hairfall but it requires some time Identifying the causes like maintaining cause or precipitating cause would prove to be beneficial Constitutional medicine approach as well as anti–miasmatic cause is required for better results Following medicines are useful in treating alopecia Lycopodium Graphites Thuja Phosphoric–acid Selenium Mancinella Fluoric–acid Cantharis Phosphorus China Sepia Caution–avoid self medication as detailed history is required in each & every case Thus Homoeopathy along with proper diet & regimen, regular exercises would prove to be a great ray of hope for the patients of alopecia or hair–fall.

Hi. It's normal to loose 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. aManagement: 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 Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, 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. Apart from this, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month. Investigations advised: Get your blood tested for (empty stomach) - CBC, S. Iron, S. Folic acid, S. Ferritin, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12. If there is any family history of Thyroid dysfunction, get Thyroid function test done as well.
