Worthwhile? — almost certainly. ...Read more

I have more hair fall for last 5 months even I don't have dandruff, fever, iron deficiency, thyroid, tension job, please suggest me?

Few common ones: Severe and prolonged illness, chemo, medication/withdrawal of such (i. E ocps), and following pregnancy are few common examples of causes of hair loss(falling-out). These will grow back in time. U lose about 150 hair per day, but those with longer hair and braid/tie their hair see fall-out more during showering because the fallen hair are still held in tie until release/shower/brushing. Good luck. ...Read more
