I appreciate your concern regarding hair fall
. Hair fall is usually ascribed to multiple factors like diet and nutrition, hormones, stress
, acute or chronic medical conditions, drugs,cosmetic products etc.
From your description, it seems you might be having Telogen Effluvium, which is hairfall secondary to stress.
If I were your dermatologist/trichologist, I would like to take through history including family history, history of recent major trauma/illness/stress/medications etc and recommend some basic investigations like CBC
, blood sugar
, Thyroid function test. Some other special investigations like trichogram and dermoscopy
and further aid in diagnosis and prognosis.
I would suggest you a course of oral tablets containing biotin
and other essential vitamins and minerals for minimum 3 months. Also, would put you on solution containing 5%/10% minoxidil
once a day and a hair serum containing peptides for hair growth
at night.(Q sera
etc). I would advise use of gentle shampoo and conditioner on regular basis and use of coconut oil twice a week.
Also enquire from your dermatologist
about upcoming treatment options like mesotherapy
and platelet-rich plasma.
Avoid combing in wet hair and let them dry by wrapping in towel. Avoid blow dryers and hair-color/dyes. Take plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet and try to de-stress your routine life.
