Sudden extreme hairfall since 3-4 weeks
Since August, I've suddenly started to get extreme hair loss happening, which has resulted in my top of my hair thinning out completely. I've had a very sedentary lifestyle working from home last 6 months with zero physical activity, and irregular sleep pattern, mostly deficit in sleep, and added stress from work and finances, long hours in front of the screen. Sometimes my scalp also feels itchy but not sure if dandruff. Very concerned since it's not gradual and just happening all of a sudden and still going on. I've not oiled earlier but now started to with coconut and bringraj. How do I know the cause of this and stop it and recover the loss? Thank you for taking the time.

You may be suffering from androgenic alopecia which is also called as pattern baldness. The hairs start reducing in density at the crown (top) and also the hairline starts refeeding  from the front. This is usually progressive throughout life unless treated. This may also be accompanied by severe dandruff. The FDA approved treatment for this condition is a lotion and tablets. There is no other alternative. No oil or cream will magically work because the hairs are getting miniaturised  and eventually disappearing due to the hormonal effects on the hair roots. Along with this, you can also consider platelet rich plasma therapy for faster results. Please contact me with photos using online consult option for proper examination and treatment. Do not start treatment without consulting.
