Hair Thinning or Hair Loss ? When to hit the panic button !

1. An average fall of 50-150 strands a day is quite normal, so we shouldn’t be always worried.
2. However a sudden increase in visible hair fall from the scalp can be related to stress levels. Stress can increase cortisol, which shifts the hair follicles into a resting phase – a primary reason for hair fall !
3. This is easily reversible, you can relax. Good diet & scalp hygiene can help get back to normalcy quickly.
4. A more visible scalp is hair thinning. Hairfall is not seen usually in such cases, only the hair gets thinner exposing the scalp.
5. Thinning hair condition calls for medical advice, a proper diagnosis & follow up treatment !
