Female Hair Loss

I am suffering from hair loss and has a severe dandruff problem too? are those two related? what to do?


No hair loss is not directly related to dandruff, dandruff is called as seborrhea in technical terms. Dandruff is the scaling of scalp skin which is very superficial and does not involve the deeper parts of the scalp where actual follicle of hair lies. As dandruff is not in contact with hair follicles so it can’t cause hair loss as such. hair three-step cycle called anagen, catagen and telogen shorter the cycle more is the hair loss, DHT actually shortens this cycle that’s why causes hair loss by affecting hair follicles.


So no dandruff don’t cause hair loss, so you now need to find a root cause of hair loss. have a consultation with one of our consultants then he or she will help you out.
