How can I treat severe hair fall and an itchy scalp?Skin, Hair & Nails Follicle Hair Hair Loss
Hello. I have a serious condition and it actually have been happening for I think up to 4 years now. My hair falls started as minor, and I thought using hair fall shampoo and conditioner and some hair fall serum will eventually make my hair better. I waited, but I thought wrong.
Now it’s getting worse. My hair is too thin. I can see my scalp on certain areas and it’s always very itchy. When I shower and comb my hair, it falls. When I sleep and wake up the next day, it’s everywhere on my pillow and the bed (where my head is/was). I bought a cheap voucher on Faves (previously Groupon) and went to a hair salon and did treatment for strengthening my hair but apparently it did not work! I’m having financial issues so no I cannot go to hair therapies/hair experts for analysis or treatments. I need an advice on what to do the natural way, that doesn’t involve too much money. Please help! I have been staying at home for a very long time because I’m so ashamed of leaving home with my hair so thin, making me look so old. I have 2 children and I definitely do not want to lock myself forever at home.
Possible causes of my hair fall:-
1) Stress. Marital issues.
2) Sleeping late at night like 4am, waking up in the morning and feeling tired again. So I’ll sleep again in the afternoon like 3-4hours, whenever possible.
3) Lack of fruits or vitamins. I do eat fish and vegetables though.
These possibilities stated are based on what I think may cause the hair falling but I’m not sure exactly what. I look forward to any advice, and I’d like to say Thank You in advanced to whomever that have read my post and is willing to share some thoughts 🙂
Hi Dianne Rose,
Based on your story, I can immediately pinpoint possible causes of your hair loss.
1. Scalp Dermatitis (inflammation of scalp)
2. Tinea Capitis (fungal infection of scalp)
3. Nutritional Deficiencies
4. Female Pattern Hair Loss(multi factorial causes)
Steroid scalp lotions, Ketoconazole shampoo and Minoxidil spray/foam will be your first line treatment.
The above treatments are not expensive. You have a medical condition and it’s turning into agoraphobia and possibly depression, so please please please seek a proper medical consult.
You should visit a doctor / dermatologist keen in treating hair loss.
