Hello doctor,

I am a 25-year-old woman who has been diagnosed with PCOD for two years and has observed gradual hair thinning. I began to change my routine and make some lifestyle changes, such as eating a high protein diet, walking, exercising for thirty minutes every day, oiling hair regularly, and washing my hair at regular intervals. However, the problems appear to persist despite all efforts, making me feel depressed about the situation. Please provide me with a solution to increase the thickness of my hair.



Welcome to Icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

In general, several factors such as hormonal imbalances, vitamin and mineral deficiency, lack of exercise, and inadequate sleep tend to disrupt the hair cycle, resulting in hair loss. Because it is a multifactorial problem, taking medications alone will not solve it; instead, a holistic approach is required. I recommend that you try the following methods to improve your situation. Walk on a regular basis, maintain a regular yoga and pranayama practice, consume flax seeds on a regular basis, use a gentle herbal shampoo followed by a high-quality hair serum. For treatment I suggest you take tablet VB 7 HAIR (Biotin and Multi-Vitamin tablet) - one tablet per day for a period of twelve weeks and capsule Evacare (Ashoka,Shatavari and Lodhra) - twice daily for a period of twelve weeks.

I hope this has helped you.

Thank you.
