4 reasons why you are losing your hair

We outline four lifestyle errors that lead to hair fall and what you can do about them. Except in the case of genetic hair fall, which may need more drastic or cosmetic help from an expert, in lifestyle-induced hair fall it is common sense to assume that once you have removed the cause of hair fall, you can breathe a sigh of relief and be assured that you have arrested damage to the scalp.
