Question: I am losing about 100 hair a days since 2 months. Especially, when I wake up from bed, I see around 30 hair on my pillow. I`m really worried and depressed. I have consulted dermatologist she prescribed me vichy dercos noegenic shampoo and to avoid hair oil. It’s making my scalp too much dry and increasing my hair fall. Please suggest shall I opt for Sebamed Anti-dandruff shampoo
Answer: Hi Mohammed, it is absolutely normal to lose around 100 hairs per day so what you describe does not sound like anything to worry about. It sounds like your dermatologist has prescribed you treatments to deal with a scalp condition rather than hair loss.
If you have a problem with dandruff then by all means try anti-dandruff shampoos that are designed for frequent use as they will be more gentle on the hair and scalp. Some formulations are designed to be used every other day or twice per week, however, you can still wash your hair in between these times; just take care to use a shampoo that is suited to your hair type. Please do note that shampoo will not treat hair loss though.
If your hair fall increases and you are still concerned about losing your hair then we recommend you have a consultation with a specialist. They will be able to assess you, diagnose any hair loss condition and explain any scalp issues you may be experiencing. This will at the very least help to put your mind at rest and provide you with options for a plan of action to address these issues.
