Hi there....I can understand your concern. Thin hair, hair fall could be due to many reasons like hereditary, stress, thyroid disorders, anemia, pcod, recent fever, vitamin deficiency, seborrhic capitis. You will require detailed clinical examination and further investigations. So kindly consult nearby dermatologist for further evaluation. Conservatively at home, don't use hot water while having head bath. Use only lukewarm water. While drying your hair, don't scrub too much or use hair dryer. Just pad with towel.

Hello. Hair fall may be due to various medical or non-medical problems, including stress, lack of sleep, diet etc. Apply MINTOP FORTE 5% solution over your scalp at the hair roots 2-3 times per day. If the problem persists, contact a dermatologist for further opinion.
