Hair Fall - How Homeopathy Can Help?

Loss of hair from the scalp, one of the most common problems plaguing the world today, can be caused by a variety of factors such as genetics, hormonal, hereditary disorders and environmental factors. There are a number of homeopathic remedies that are used to treat hair loss. The Homoeopathic treatment focuses on the cause of the disease rather than just treating the symptoms.

Hair loss can be classified as -

  • Telogen effluvium: This is a disorder of the hair growth cycle where the telogen phase (where the hair falls out) becomes dominant.
