How to stop hair fall in girls and how to deal with avoiding this major problem?

A lot of young girls are suffering from the problem of hair loss with the changing lifestyles. Here is an insight by Dr Dhananjay Chavan, the Director at Clear Skin and HairMD on the best method to control hair fall for girls. Hair fall in girls is quite a major problem, especially for young girls which are becoming a huge problem all across the world.

There are so many causes for hair fall to occur, especially in females. It is mainly due to nutritional deficiency or another terminology known as telogen effluvium, which means that any type of sprays or after any major illness when there is stress on the body, there is also a stress on the body’s immune system. Even when there is a major trauma, either physically, mentally or there is a major operation and a major surgery then, probably all of the hair loss may occur. Another important cause for hair loss is genetically determined or dependant on hormones. It is important for you to understand whether the problem is due to nutritional causes or whether there is a pathological cause involved.

It can also be a genetic cause or a hormonal issue, especially PCOD, PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or Polycystic Ovarian Disease). It can be any of the aforementioned causes or even thyroid dysfunction can act as a big reason for hair loss.

When there is hypothyroidism, hair loss occurs quite frequently. All of these issues can be controlled with medication thus stopping the hair loss. When it comes to nutritional deficiency, supplements curing severe anemia and vitamin deficiency (especially the deficiency of vitamin B12 as well as vitamin D3 than these) can be consumed by the patient.

If nutrition is the main cause, then altering the diet becomes the main treatment as girls can suffer from excessive hair loss with the absence of vitamins and proteins. With peptides and other supporting measures also, we can get hair loss under control. By following these steps, the lost hair can easily re-grow.

Once nutrition is taken care of and if that is the underlying cause of the problem, we can go ahead with dietary changes to make up for the deficiency of B12, B3 as well as protein. In adult females, especially once they touch 30 or 35 years of age, it is advisable to visit a nutritionist first as there are also a lot of hormonal changes that are caused with growing age.

If dietary changes and home remedies do not work, then it is imperative to consult a dermatologist or a trichologist who can advise you further on what steps to take ahead to stop this hair loss.

It is imperative to go and find out the right cause. A lot of times stress or other pathological issues come into the picture as well. If any of these issues are there, then it is important to get them treated.

All of the aforementioned causes mainly cause hair loss in girls and it can be treated correctly if taken care of at the right stage. Try going to a nutritionist to find out if you are suffering from any deficiency and undertake home remedies. If both of them prove to be redundant to you, then you can visit us for a consultation.
