i am a girl of 27 years old and having hair loss problem.i am experiencing this problem from 3/4 years. my hairs are very thin and whenever i do comb in my hairs , many hairs fall. i had went to doctor .he had given me some syrups having vitamins and zinc.
i am also using one hair lotion and shampoo too.Initially my hairs had stopped falling but now again.
i want to have thick hairs and want them to stop falling. i am very worried as now scalp is gonna visible and i feel shame to go attend parties and such occasions.

Answer
Causes Of Hair Fall-
1. Any serious physical or mental illness.
2. Skin disease in the scalp.
3. Chlorine in bath water.
4. Heat on scalp or hair----ironing,hot water bath.
5. Traction
6. Infection
7. Nutritional deficiency
8. Androgenic stimulation
9. Seasonal
10. After childbirth
11.Familial

In female androgenic alopecia is rare and merely termed as (FPHL) Female Pattern Hair Loss.
FPHL usually have a family history & Christmas tree pattern of hair loss present.
If any female has positive family history(mother,aunt,sister) of hair loss & the patient has Christmas tree pattern hair loss then it may be androgenic or FPHL.
Otherwise other causes of hair should be considered.


In female the common cause of hair loss is Telogen effluvium.

Any patient with significant hair loss should consult with Trichologist (Hair specialist).
so at first cause of hair loss should be find out & Treat accordingly.
