What are the reasons for Hair Loss?
  • Heredity- Inherited from family, also called male-pattern or female-pattern hair loss.
  • Hormone imbalances: This could be due to pregnancy, childbirth or the onset of menopause.
  • Medications and vitamins: Hair loss can also take place due to medications used for birth control, high blood pressure, heart problems, depression, arthritis, and cancer.
  • Harsh hairstyles or treatments- Using curling irons, ponytails or wearing tight braids.
    Illness or surgery:  Any sickness or post trauma stress may cause your body to temporarily delay hair production.
  • Alopecia areata- An autoimmune condition with no cure, which causes rapid body-wide hair loss.
    Chemotherapy- Some of the drugs used to beat back cancer, unfortunately, can also cause your hair to fall out.
  • Aging: As you grow, your hair also gets thinner and tends to break more easily as you age.
    Nutritional deficits: Poor diet, especially because of insufficient protein, vitamin or iron.

Whatever may be the cause, hair fall can indicate health issues and can also be really depressing for many causing them to lose self-confidence. But, you don’t have to worry. So here are some effective hair loss treatments in India that you can opt if you are experiencing hair loss-

  • Hair Transplant-Hair transplant can produce much more attractive and natural-looking results than older methods.. Make sure to check the surgeon’s credentials and experience carefully before getting a transplant done. Micrografts are some of the newest techniques in which surgeons transplant single one to two hair follicles.
  • Platelet rich plasma – In this treatment, platelet rich plasma is obtained from the processed whole blood of male patients and is injected into their scalp. Their efficiency is still under study.
  • Minoxidil (Rogaine): This is a topical medicine, which is available over the counter and does not require any prescription. It is available as a 2% solution, 4% solution, 5% solution, and a new foam or mousse preparation. It works great on the crown, however, not so well in the frontal region. Please consult your Doctor for the right dosage & medication for you.
  • Finasteride (Propecia) – This drug is only available for men. This is a prescription drug which brings down hair loss and lead to new hair growth. You need to continue taking it to retain its benefits.

You can also make some changes in your lifestyle to increase hair growth. Below are some tips

  • Nourish your hair by including biotin-rich foods like cucumbers, carrots, nuts, and fish etc.
  • Take plenty of vitamin E with foods like green vegetables, sunflower oil, seeds, and nuts.
  • Zinc can prevent hair loss and is great for scalp protection. It can be found in egg, oysters, and beef.
  • Go for red capsicums and citrus fruits for Vitamin C. It stimulates collagen that lines hair strands and can protect them from breakage.
  • Omega acid acts as a hydrating agent for the hair and scalp and can be found in walnuts, pumpkin seeds, avocado and oily fish.
  • Do Yoga and meditation to get rid of stress. Stress can disrupt the natural growth of hair as it affects your hormonal levels, sleeping habits, lifestyle, and diet.
  • For men suffering hair loss, keep your hair short. A closer crop cut will maximize coverage and help you get back that confidence.
  • Limit the intake of fluids that increase water loss such as alcohol, coffee, and tea.
  • Drink a lot of water, 96 ounces of water every single day.
  • Let your hair dry naturally.
  • Snip off the split ends after every two weeks so that they do not travel rearward to the root.
  • Use a wide-toothed comb instead of a hairbrush, it causes less friction and is gentle to the hair.
  • Use lukewarm water to wash your hair as too much hot water can cause irritation by drying out the scalp.
  • Use your hands and fingertips to shape your shorter hairstyle and groom it with a natural growth pattern.
  • Seek personal or professional help once balding has begun.

Hair loss is a condition that can affect both men and women.
