Dandruff is the main reason for hair loss. It is caused by improper care of the hair. It could also be caused if you do applying oil on your hair and scalp on a regular basis.
Severe hair loss is seen as a symptom in fatal disease conditions like liver diseases and kidney disorders.
Most people today apply oil only on the surface of the hair.
You must apply oil all over the scalp, until it reaches the roots of the hair. You could wash your hair half an hour.
Wash your pillow covers, comb, towels etc. with disinfectant like dettol twice a week or on alternate days in order to keep dandruff in check.
Those who suffer from broken hair due to hair wax may use Dhurdhurapatradi oil.
Kunthalakanthi, Kayyunnyadi and Neelabhringadi oils are good for applying on the head.
Once in a week apply the gel obtained from removing the skin of katarvazha (Indian aloe) on the head and wash after half an hour.
Aswagandha rasayanam and sathavari gulam could also help solve the problem of hair loss.
