Hair Loss Prevention Tips

It is common to see your hair falling while combing. This is very natural and it gets replaced by new hair. It is like cyclic process but as we get older the growth of new hair in the follicles slows down which results in baldness. Losing 50 to 100 hairs in a day is normal. If you lose excessive hair instead of the normal hair falling then it is a matter of concern.

Baldness is more common in men rather than in women. Hair Loss is caused due to hereditary or genetic factors. It may also be a result of malnutrition or health related issued like thyroid diseases, stress, hormonal changes, stress etc. Sometimes high fever may lead to temporary Hair Loss.

  • Eat a healthy diet and nutritious food which would keep your hairs stronger and healthy.
  • Avoid using hair gels or creams deeper into your head.
