Presence of hair on the pillow, floor, on your comb and sink all these indicate hair loss. Hair loss (alopecia) is a severe problem affecting millions of people irrespective of age and gender. We all lose around 50 to 100 hair strands regularly and grow new hair in place of them, but if we lose more, it should be diagnosed. Most of the people neglect hair loss in the beginning stages and regret it later. Several factors including both internal and external factors can trigger hair loss like unhealthy diet, dandruff, pollution, weather changes (winter), stress, tension, chemical products, health issues like thyroid, PCOS and others.
