I moved into Hyderabad about an year back. They say that the water is hard here. I take bath with hot water daily, but not on scalp.
I had always had a dandruff problem and i applied nizoral, and the problem was in control. From about 7 months back, I am experiencing hair fall, about 15-20 strands each time I brush (even with a soft comb). There are dry scales on the hair. I have tried consulting doctors who say this may be due to psoraisis, and I am taking homeopathy medicines – psornium-200 daily, besides nizoral – 2 a week, 2 a week propysalic (a steroid having salicylic acid).
There is no signficant relief. Please advise if I should go for a trichoscan, if it helps.
I used to put coconut oil on my hair earlier, but not after moving to Hyderabad. Please advise…
If you are not washing your hair, you are probably building up considerable dead skin (what you are calling dandruff) and waxy debris. When you brush it, this debris may be anchored to the actual hair shafts. This will result in hair appearing in the brush — more hair than one might expect if you washed and used a hair conditioner for it. This would be the most likely cause of your hair loss. When you feel the ground shaking and see a herd of charging elephants coming your way, the first thing that should not come to your mind is an upcoming thunder storm.
