Hairfall

Hair fall is a problem when the rate of hair loss is more than the rate of hair regrowth. The signs of hair fall are losing hair in patches or clumps, thinning of hair, and hair becoming brittle and fragile. Many conditions like thyroid disease, PCOS, cancer, extreme weight loss, and scalp infection can result in hair fall.
