What is hair loss?
Hair loss refers to loss of hair from various parts of the body. Hair is made up of a protein called keratin that is produced in hair follicles by the outer layer of the skin. Inadequate intake of nutrients and following an unhealthy diet can cause undernourishment of the body. This can lead to dehydration of the scalp and hair which further triggers excessive hair fall.
