Hello. There are many causes for hair fall. U need to get evaluated thoroughly for your hair fall. And pigmentation that you are talking about may be acanthosis nigricans. U should consult a Dermatologist for it. Just by sugar control, it is very unlikely to reduce.

Greetings. You'll need a detailed assessment for cause of hair fall in your case. As far as pigmentation is concerned - it cannot disappear just because sugar levels are normal but you'll need creams to lighten the color and improve it's appearance. Meet a qualified dermatologist in your city. Further queries may be sent on follow up messaging. Warm regards
