Many people ask remedies for some common hair problems instead of writing again and again am putting it here so it could be useful to all.
This is about hair fall.
First of all check and ascertain which type of hair fall it is
It can be diffused.  it can be in patches or male pattern of baldness in which basically hair line recedes.
Now lets check each one.
First male pattern.
I hope all know how it goes I need not to tell that receding hairline and patch on scalp in younger age groups. Generally it is hereditary and hormones are the culprits. This type of  hair fall doesn’t respond to usual conventional approaches. Testosterone is the responsible factor and hair transplant is a very good option in these cases.
So next is patches.
It can be because of different reasons mainly we can look for stress, emotional traumas, infections like fungal, yeasts or just idiopathic.  I advise you all to visit the dr to make a proper diagnosis. And don’t try to treat this at your own else it may increase and can damage hair roots permanently.
Next and most common problem of hair fall is diffused type where u don’t understand from which place it is coming out but there are hairs every where on pillow and dress L
First of all we need to know that in certain days in a year in every ones life upto 100 hair fall  a day is normal.
This type of hair fall may happen  because of chronic illnesses, deficiencies and some side effects of drugs. In this telophase is of  abnormal period  and sudden fall of those old hairs afterwards cause  panic . any time on a scalp 90 percent of hairs are in growing stage and 10 percent in dying or telophase. More than this ratio causes sudden hair fall.
Many times nasty dandruff is the major cause.
Sometimes stress and work pressure is also a cause for hair loss and declining health.
In many people diet deficient in iron, proteins and many essential minerals can cause brittle, dry lusterless hairs. 
Some times too much of extreme weathers like prolonged sun exposure, winds and climate changes can also affect the roots of hairs.
Check if you are wearing turbans, helmets or any covering for long and there is enough suffocation for the hairs to die.
Check out for too much chlorine or hardness in water.
Try to use mild ph balanced shampoo.
There is no need to apply shampoo daily just a rinse will do if you were not out doors for long.
Dont tie hairs too tight this can also harm the roots particularly at bed time.
Whenever we want to go for self medication for hair loss. I would advise to make sure if there is  some thing where you need experts help.
If its not then check your diet first add enough greens, nuts, sprouts, milk proteins and  other plants or lean meat proteins.
Remove the cause and take precautions.
Massage some good quality oil into the hairs twice in week. U may use bhringraaj oil, aamla oil or neelibhringi oil.
Keep the hydration levels good. Avoid aerated drinks and use nariyal pani/ coconut water  instead.

Most important of all is to remove stress and sleep adequately.
To name a few herbs bhringraaj, aamla, brahmi you can use as single herb therapy.
For application or hair pack - shikakai, hibiscus, neem, black til, Indian henna leaves, tea leaves and fenugreek seeds one can apply after removing the cause for hair fall.
In essential oils rosemary is the best oil in case of dandruff one can go for tea tree, cedar or lemon oils.
Chhammomile is the best green tea for stress and hair growth.
We  again stress upon that costly oils, cosmetics and chemicals don’t do any good for skin and hairs. As both show inner health and peace, instead of spending crazily on products invest sensibly on health.
