    100 strands of hair loss/ day is normal. If it is more than that, the cause of hair loss should be identified. Consult a dermatologist if you find any abnormal hair loss. To prevent hair loss one should take care of body and mind. 1. Keep body healthy: Take Nutritious food rich in vitamins, proteins and micronutrients (Iron, Zinc, Selenium, Iodine, and Magnesium etc) and take recommended calories and fats. 2. Hygiene: Clean your hair regularly-Combing with a clean comb, washing hair with appropriate shampoo and always protect your hair from dust (environmental pollution) Do not try different commercial products on hair without consulting a physician or dermatologist. 3. Keep your mind cool by doing Meditation/Relaxing exercises: Stress can aggravate the problem so do not worry much about anything. 4. Be cautious in using over the counter medication as some medicines/drugs can cause hair loss. Even after too much hair loss, do not feel depressed or embarrassed. There is always a solution, for any sort of hair loss. Approach the doctor to get that solution.
