Hurting over hair loss

Recently, my hair has become dry and looks dull. I wash my hair thrice a week and experience a lot of hair loss during washing, even though I use a shampoo and a conditioner.

Q: Recently, my hair has become dry and looks dull. I wash my hair thrice a week and experience a lot of hair loss during washing, even though I use a shampoo and a conditioner. What should I do to make my hair healthy and also reduce hair loss? Should I include particular foods in my diet or take supplements?

A: Hair loss is often a natural phenomenon as our hair undergoes a cyclical activity. If your hair fall lasts for more than three months, and your hair has changed in texture, you will need to visit a dermatologist who will examine and advise proper treatment. Often, deficiencies are the cause and need to be specifically checked with blood tests.
