In these modern days, along with the time we are also running and making ourselves busy with work not giving enough time for ourselves .We should spare some time for ourselves for our body and health. Hair though it is not a vital organ in our body it plays a vital part in our daily life.

Now a days hair fall has become a common problem for men and women. Even premature hair loss is also increased in young ones. Some amount of hair loss daily is common and it varies from person to person. If that fall is more you have to find out the reason behind it and pay a little attention and time to control it.

      If the follicle is active the fallen hair replaces new hair. Only thing is you have to maintain the proper conditioning of the scalp and hair.

      Very useful article! I always thought that when parents say "you are going to make my hair fall out!" they were just being dramatic, but I guess not! LOL I see that stress does make your hair fall out. I like the home remedies. I wonder... is there anything that helps hair grow back once it has already fallen?
