Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • In general, female lose hair and experience of a reduction in density but the headline is intact.
  • There can be a lot of reasons for hair loss like:
  1. Improper hair routine and hard (salt) water.
  2. Have a good intake of fresh fruits and maintain vitamin D3 levels.
  3. Optimum zinc and biotin levels are key.
  4. Use a broad bristle comb and avoid over strenuous combing of hair.
  5. Never shampoo in dry hair.
  • As for medication, take capsule Keraglo Eva (gamma Lenolenic acid) one every day.
  • Tablet Neurobion forte (multivitamin) one every day for 6 months.
  • Hair need a long-term treatment so should follow it with some patience.
