Try these anti hairfall tips by dermatologist Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta

Hair loss is a very common problem and most people try using remedies to stop or reduce losing hair but not many feel contented with the results. Dermatologist Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta shares some tips on her Instagram handle to fix this problem. She says that losing up to 50 to 100 strands of hair a day is normal but any excessive loss should be acutely evaluated. Dr Gupta said hair loss was very common among her clients and she has developed “expert-approved” tips to control hair fall and make them look healthy and long.

The dermatologist said when you walk into a clinic they prescribe you several blood tests, including CBC, Vit D3 and BR2. The test results could suggest the reasons why you were losing hair. Apart from that, there are some tips that you can try at home to stop excessive hair fall.


1) Make sure you don’t tie your hair in tight hair styles or high ponytails because that causes more friction and more tightness to the hair, which can lead to hair fall.


2) Make sure you use a silk pillow cover which reduces the friction and doesn’t break your hair.


3) Avoid any over styling or chemical treatments to the hair which can further lead to breakage of the hair bonds.


4) Use shampoos and conditioners which are meant for your hair type.


5) Use certain hair serums every day to not only promote hair growth but also to reduce the hair breakage and hair fall.
