Dry shampoo can cause hair loss
1 of 5
Dry shampoo soaks up the oil from your hair and strips the scalp of its natural oils, making it rough and itchy, causing dandruff. As a result, the hair shafts become dry and tangle up easily, leading to hair loss. Your homeopath may suggest you the medicine Psorinum that is an effective remedy to treat hair fall caused by dry and itchy scalp.

2 of 5
Including a big bowl of oats in your breakfast or a generous amount of onions in your dish can permanently save you from the menace that hair fall is. Oats are rich in fibre, iron, omega-6 fatty acids, Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs) and zinc that trigger growth of new hair and strengthen your hair shafts. Similarly, onions are also great for hair growth as they contain high levels of silica that help to strengthen hair from its roots.
Which of the following factors can cause dangerous amounts of hair fall?
3 of 5
Don t shrug already! Excess use of smartphones, tablets and laptops exposes you to the harmful radio-waves emitted by these digital devices which cause a condition called Alopecia Areata or male pattern baldness. This is a condition wherein you lose patches of hair from the scalp. Hence, it is always advisable to control your usage of these electronic devices and consult your homeopath should the condition worsen. Your homeopath may suggest you Calcarea Carbonica which is a great homeopathic remedy for Alopecia.
Tight ponytails and braids are a vital cause of hair fall
4 of 5
Maintaining a tight hair-style on a regular basis such as tight braids and pony tails makes you more susceptible to hair loss. Regular tight hairstyles creates a condition called Traction Alopecia which puts a lot of tension on your hair, causing chronic hair loss, especially along the temple line, above the ears or along the bottom of your hair line. Your homeopath may suggest you Floricum Acidum or Phosphorus, both equally effective in treating hair loss in well-defined spots of your scalp.
Dieting can result in hair loss
5 of 5
Research shows that extreme forms of dieting such as the Dukan Diet, Five-bite diet and the Yo-Yo diet leave you malnourished and put extreme stress on your body. This causes a serious deficit of vital nourishment in your scalp, making your hair follicles weak and your hair shafts fragile, causing rapid hair loss. In case you are on such a diet and notice rapid hair fall, consult your homeopath immediately who may prescribe you Natrum Muriaticum, a potent remedy for hair loss made from Sodium Chloride (common salt). He may also advise you to refrain from such extreme diets and instead, resort to daily exercises.
