Is there any medicine to stop hair fall and hair greying.

1 Doctor Answered
YES. You can treat the hair loss if you find out the reason. Hair loss never occurs in day but it takes minimum 3 months once the trigger enters in your body. Try to find out the reason and then plan the treatments. Few possible causes can be- Genetic factors: Genetic factors bring about gradual hair loss in both the sexes; resulting in bald spots and a receding hairline in men and the thinning of hair among women. Hereditary factors also determines the age at which you could start losing hair. Medical conditions- Medical conditions such as hormonal imbalances attack the body's immune system, thus resulting in damaged hair follicles, scalp infections such as ringworm, skin disorders and hair pulling disorder, a psychological condition that causes people to pull out hair from the scalp, eyebrows or other parts of the body. Medications: Hair loss can be caused due to intake of certain drugs, such as the ones for birth control or for treating high blood pressure, heart problems, depression, arthritis or cancer. Consumption of excessive Vitamin A can cause hair fall as well. Stress: Physical and emotional stress can cause hair loss. Surgery, high fevers, and blood loss can cause enough stress to cause excessive shedding. Childbirth can result in hair loss for several months after delivery. As for psychological stress, the link is less well defined, but many people have reported losing hair at times of extreme mental stress or anxiety. Anemia: Anemia (insufficient red blood cells in the blood) thyroid disorders can also result in hair loss.
