Dove hairfall facts:
1. Humidity makes hair dry and brittle, leading to hairfall
2. Colouring the hair damages the hair strands leading to breakage
3. Pollution is also an unseen killer of healthy hair
4. Tangled hair is the most common reason for hair fall
5. While shampooing cleanses your hair, regular conditioning is required for adequate moisturization. Regular use of conditioner post shampoo also solves the problem of entangling which is the major cause of hairfall.

Any reactions to a drug – like Vitamin B complex which is a supplement – ‘side effect’ is a negative reaction to a drug – this is your body telling you that what you just gave it is toxic to it, and instead of helping you, it is actually hurting you. It is your body’s way of telling you to stop. All drugs have side effects, and are toxic…even lethal…to some people at some dosage. Another term for toxic is poisonous. We owe it to ourselves to try less toxic treatments first. Especially since too many drugs merely cover up symptoms rather than treat the underlying cause of the symptom in the first place. Another example: Green Tea supplement: Green tea extract supplements have been linked to several cases of liver damage. Green tea extracts might make liver disease worse.

Another example: Vitamin D posted on Facebook: “I’m regretting reading the small print on my bottle of Vitamin D capsules. The source is “wool oil.” So… sheep sebum? I can’t get the (hopefully imagined) smell of wet sheep out of my mouth now.”

Traction alopecia is hair loss that occurs as a result of continuous pulling of the hair. Pulling may occur from hairstyles such as tight cornrows, plaits or braids with or without extensions, weaves, ponytails or even hair rollers or curlers. Natural hairstyles can also lead to traction alopecia as well. Long heavy locks and tightly coiled twists can lead to traction alopecia. The hair loss associated with traction alopecia typically occurs at the frontal hairline, at the temples or the area of the scalp above the ears. It may also occur at the posterior hairline.
When hair starts to fall out MORE, there are no hair products or treatment, that are made of glue to fix, prevent, reverse hair from getting damaged or hair falls. It is a trillion dollar business, and they do not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair falls.
Eliminate the ’causes’ and your hair will improve.
What should you do if you think that you may have hair loss? First, call your dermatologist today! If you don’t have one, visit the “Find a Doctor” portion of the website of the American Academy of Dermatology. Secondly, when you visit your dermatologist, have a list of your medications, allergies, medical conditions and your hair care practices (for example: relaxers for 20 years, hot combs for 10 years, no weaves, braids with extensions for two years and natural styles for the last 5 years). Do not be afraid if your doctor suggests blood test, a scalp biopsy or culture. These procedures are recommended so that the doctor can determine the type of hair loss that you have and treatment can be started. ~Susan C. Taylor, MD
