How to get hair fall back?

The chances of hair regrowth depend on what is causing the hair to fall. In some cases, the hair that has fallen out may come back, such as if the hair has fallen out because of certain medication. On the other hand, sometimes hair regrowth is not possible, like in cases where the hair falls due to old age. Let us discuss this in detail.

Hereditary hair loss

This type of condition can develop in both men and women, making it the most common cause of hair loss worldwide. Treatment can help prevent or slow it down and it can also help in hair regrowth.
