The most important part of your look and health is hair. Trust me style and quality of hair define your personality. Never ever ignore them.
Till High School I had very thick hair but during exams they start falling. Reason was obvious too much stress and I was too young and ignorant to think about it. But it’s never too late until you are over 30.
I was having high hair fall for last 6-7 years. In summers (which last for almost six month in India) I thought it is because of sweating and in fall season (which last for 3 months) hair does fall generally for everyone. So time passed with this thought only. I thought if my hair is falling without any chemical treatment why should I not give a try to it and finally I had rebounding. I can’t forget those great feeling when your hair is so silky, smooth and manageable even without comb.
Then, there was a great disaster after a week. My hair was falling like 200 strands per day. I was feeling I will be bald in few days. Finally I rush to the doctor. I told him my hair is not falling just because of chemical treatment, they were falling before as well but now condition is worst.
My doctor advised me Ultrasound of pelvis and blood test. And there was the root cause. I had polycystic which was the main reason of my hair fall before chemical treatment. In blood test we found my iron level was low (not lower than the required minimum amount but not enough for hair strength). He prescribes me oral medicine, shampoo and tincture.
Iron Tablets: Doctor advised me some Iron tablets to increase Iron level but I will suggest try to avoid them, unless you have iron deficiency. Believe me or not, it increases your aging process and open up your pores. It is better if you take vegetables and fruits which have iron in plenty. I told my doctor, however he wasn’t very much agree to me. But when I insist he stopped prescribing me and I used sultanas which did increase my iron level.
