We’re all familiar with the impact ‘a bad hair day’ can have on our moods. While it is natural to lose about a 100 strands of hair everyday, the rate of new hair growth not compensating for the hair’s daily loss can become an alarming concern.

There can be several causes of hairfall, some of which are:

  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Dandruff
  • Hormonal issues
  • Medical conditions like thyroid, PCOS
  • Chronic stress
  • Traction Alopecia i.e. tying your hair too tight or incorrectly
  • Genetics
  • Age
