How can you regain lost hair by just getting a haircut, changing your shampoo, or by changing your hair parting? These are just temporary solutions to change your look. Down the line, you know you are losing a lot of them and need to find a hair fall control solution!

- Nutritional deficiencies
- Chronic stress
- Hormonal changes (pregnancy, taking birth control pills)
- Drastic weight changes
What can you do to stop or prevent thinning hair?
The first step is to understand when you should seek help for thinning hair and hair loss. It is normal to lose 50-100 strands a day. If you lose more than that, it is advisable to seek medical assistance.
If you’re looking for a safe, effective, natural, and permanent solution for hair thinning, you can try homeopathy treatment.
Homeopathic medicines for hair loss show good long-term response in hair thinning. Homeopathy is free from any side-effects. Not only do homeopathic medicines reduce hair thinning but they also protect the body from harmful side-effects (such as decreased libido, ejaculation problems) that are common with conventional drugs.
Homeopathy is a holistic medicine and treats the patient as well as the pathology. Hence thyroid disorders, PCOS can be simultaneously treated in homeopathy without having 10 different medicines, unlike conventional medicines.
Stress which is the major cause of hair loss can be effectively treated with homeopathy. Homeopathy treats not only all physical complaints but also targets the mind and gently restores mind-body equilibrium - thus it treats the patient as a whole.
Homeopathy has remedies such as Thuja Occidentalis and Sabal Serrulata which have been very effective in female hair loss treatments. These two homeopathic medicines are cited with natural DHT- inhibitor action i.e. they control hair loss caused by DHT without side-effects.
Hair lotions available in the market to control hair loss are high in chemicals and can cause chemical burns on the scalp skin leading to permanent hair loss and scars in the affected areas. Homeopathy has no such side-effects as the medicines are oral medicines. Therefore, the choice is yours whether you want to just feel ‘sad’ about your thinning hair or do something about it which gives you long-lasting result.
