Many people who notice excess hair fall get frantic and search the internet for remedies and solutions. The increasing hair fall problems have led to people searching for reliable remedies and treatments to retain hair on their heads. Or at least grow a fresh batch of hair through surgical methods. From home remedies and natural methods to medical and surgical treatments, hair fall can be controlled and prevented in various ways. To understand the root cause of the problem, visit a hair expert or even a trichologist/dermatologist and follow a proper routine. It should include a hair care regime, a balanced diet and exercise and medical treatment.

Is there anyone who says they don’t suffer from hair fall? And we aren’t talking about the people in the television ads. Hair fall is a common issue across the world. Only a selected few seem to be immune to this problem.

It is natural to lose 50-100 hair strands a day. But when you see bunches of your lovely locks on the floor, you will naturally get terrified of slowly but surely ending up bald. And it happens too, for many people. From pollution and health issues to personal hygiene and genetic conditions, various conditions cause hair fall.

GlaxoSmithKline conducted a research/study with 1125 men to analyze how genetically susceptible they were to balding/ hair loss based on a certain gene they get from family. The results showed that 1 in 7 men had more chances of losing hair due to genetic conditions. Similar inferences have been seen with several of the internal data models created at Advanced Hair Studio over the years.

In this post, we will talk about hair fall treatment, hair fall home remedies and more. Each section of the blog deals with a different way of dealing with hair fall problems.

How can I stop hair fall in a day?

Do you know that around 40% of men start suffering from visible hair loss by the time they reach 35 years? And more than 50% of women get affected by hair loss, where 1/3rd of hair loss is caused by female-pattern hair loss. Be it hair fall treatment at home or a clinic, can we really stop hair fall in a single day?

Change the Oil, Shampoo & Conditioner: Sometimes, the hair products you use can cause excess hair fall. Use products that suit the type of your scalp (oily, itchy, dandruff-control, etc.)

Stop Medication: Some medicines can cause hair loss either as a side effect or because they didn’t suit your system.

Hair Dye: The chemicals in hair colours have caused sudden hair loss in many people. Use high-quality hair dyes (especially the ones that are ammonia-free).

Oil Massages: Regular scalp massage using virgin coconut oil or essential oils will increase blood circulation which can then help in preventing hair fall.

Hair Treatment Specialists: If you are not sure why there is a sudden increase in hair fall, it is safer to consult a professional team of hair experts and check if you are suffering from any scalp-related infections. Medication will control the problem.

What is the best treatment for Hairfall?

What do you think is the best treatment for hair fall? Determining the cause for hair fall will help you find the best hair treatment to reduce hair loss.

All professional hair experts conduct a detailed scalp examination and if needed also undertake some blood tests to determine the cause of hair loss and suggest an appropriate way to control it. In some cases, a scalp biopsy may also be done. The treatment can be any of the following:

  • Minoxidil is said to aid hair growth and is used as a cure for baldness. The drug was created to control blood pressure and resulted in excessive hair growth as a side effect. With proper usage, Minoxidil is safe.
  • Finasteride was first created to fight prostate cancer. It reduces the DHT hormones on the scalp and aids in curbing male-pattern hair loss. Though some people found other side effects of this drug.
  • Laser combs and devices to promote hair growth. Though it has been found that this treatment is more effective when combined with other methods/ medication.
  • Corticosteroid is a scalp injection to control hair fall caused by inflammation in people suffering from alopecia areata (spot baldness).
  • Scalp extension is a surgical method of extending the scalp to reduce balding.
  • The scalp flaps method is a cosmetic surgical procedure where a fertile section of the scalp is removed and placed with bald patches.
  • Hair Root Therapy is another hair treatment method where the hair roots are targeted through micro-injections with nutrients. This prevents hair fall and encourages hair regrowth.

Other treatments include scalp reduction, hair rejuvenation and nutri-infusion therapy. Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and Follicular unit extraction (FUE) are the two most common hair transplant methods. These are performed by qualified and certified dermatologists and surgeons.

How can I stop hair fall and grow new hair?

Pregnancy, stress, exposure to pollution, infections, thyroid, etc. are just a few reasons that cause hair fall. There are numerous ways to stop hair fall and grow new hair. Let’s take a look at some of them.

Hair Care:

  • Regular washing and gentle combing
  • Reduce the use of chemical-filled hair styling products
  • Use coconut oil, olive oil, mustard oil or amla hair oil for regular hair massage
  • Apply fenugreek paste on the scalp and hair for 30 minutes and wash it off (this is one of the popular home remedies for hair fall)
  • Apply onion juice to the scalp and leave it for 30 minutes. Wash with water and shampoo

Diet and Supplements:

  • Include beetroot in your diet (either as juice or salad)
  • Eat lettuce, spinach, beans, peas, eggs, nuts, fish, chicken and turkey as a part of your diet
  • Drinking carrot juice is a good way to control hair fall
  • Consume low-fat dairy products
  • Vitamin A, B, C and D, along with iron, potassium, selenium and zinc, are necessary for hair growth. Biotin or Vitamin H is also good for controlling hair loss

Consult a dermatologist or your family doctor to check whether you will need to take supplements or if you can get the required vitamins and minerals through a proper diet plan. You might also have to take additional medication to stop hair fall.

How can I stop my immediate hair fall?

How can I stop my immediate hair fall?

You may not be aware that some of the routines we follow are harmful to our hair and result in hair fall? Yes. By making small changes to your hair care routine and lifestyle, you can stop immediate hair fall.

  • Stop taking hot showers. Use lukewarm water to wash your hair. Hot water dehydrates the scalp and results in brittle hair.
  • Do not comb wet hair. Scalp and hair become delicate after a good wash. Combing your hair immediately will result in excess hair fall.
  • Pulling your hair into tight ponytails or buns will tug the roots and weaken them. Don’t use tight hairstyles to style your hair. Also, don’t tie your hair tight when you sleep at night.
  • Relieve stress by doing yoga and meditation regularly. Exercising also helps reduce hair fall.

How can we stop hair fall naturally?

Many hair fall control home remedies help reduce hair loss and aid regrowth:

  • Massaging Jojoba oil into the scalp promotes blood circulation
  • Apply a paste of curry leaves to the hair and wash after 30 minutes
  • Massage coconut milk onto the scalp, leave it for 10 minutes and wash off to reduce dryness
  • Use apple cider vinegar as a last rinse to get rid of the bacteria that clogs the hair follicles
  • Massage Aloe Vera gel onto the scalp, leave it for 30 minutes and wash off

Home Remedies for hair fall & dandruff

Around 50% of the population suffers from dandruff. Itchy scalp and white flakes are prominent signs of dandruff. It is one of the common causes of hair fall.

  • Regular use of coconut oil can treat eczema that results in dandruff
  • Aloe Vera has antibacterial and antifungal properties that help in treating dandruff and reducing hair fall
  • Include probiotics and omega-3 fatty acids in your diet
  • Apply baking soda to wet hair and leave it for 2 minutes. Then wash off with regular shampoo
  • Massage lemon juice into the scalp and wash off after a minute. Do it twice a week
  • Tea tree oil acts as a leave-on conditioner to reduce dandruff

Home remedies for hair growth and thickness

Home remedies for hair fall and regrowth include oil massages, hair packs and proper diet using items we find easily at home.

  • Gooseberry or Amla oil promotes hair growth. You can also consume Amla juice
  • Have at least one serving of yoghurt every day. Yoghurt can be mixed with egg white to prepare a hair mask
  • Make a paste of hibiscus flower and apply it to the hair or add it to coconut oil and apply that oil
  • Geranium oil and rosemary oil promote hair growth and result in thick hair
  • Consuming coffee in moderation is also said to promote hair growth
  • Consuming freshly ground flax seeds every morning with a glass of water results in hair growth


It is crucial to understand the actual cause of hair loss before you decide on any hair fall treatment procedures. A combination of natural and medical remedies, such as lifestyle and hygiene changes and medication, can effectively curb hair fall and result in the growth of stronger and thicker hair in men and women.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
