Early greying of hair can occur due to smoking,stress, frequent hair colouring, deficiency of certain vitamins or it could be genetic. Take supplements of panthothenic acid, zinc & biotin to delay the process of greying. Stop smoking and avoid stress factors. Condition your hair well . You could use warm coconut oil which is a natural conditioner.

Low haemoglobin, stress, dieting, any illness, thyroid disorder
are all causes of hairfall. Certain chemical hair treatments can also cause hairfall.Do not go for any starvation diets in order to lose weight or remain slim. Your diet should be rich in proteins. Whole wheat, cereals, sprouts, egg white, lean meat, milk, soya are rich in proteins. You must include them in your diet.

Take a vitamin supplement which has biotin everyday. Check your hemoglobin. If it is low, you will need an iron supplement. You must also do your thyroid tests ie T3,T4,TSH.If these levels are abnormal, consult an endocrinologist

It is also important to do a hormonal test if your menstrual cycles are irregular. You can apply 1ml of minoxidil 2% solution on your scalp twice a day.Use a mild shampoo and conditioner twice a week.

If this doesn’t help, you must consult a dermatologist.

6. Am Sandeep 29 years old boy and have moles on my face . Could you please suggest me some medicines or creams which help me to remove the same from my face.
Moles can be removed with a radiofrequency cautery or with a Co2 laser. There are no creams or home remedies to remove moles. Please consult a dermatologist.

Your skin has dried due to clindoxyl and appears dark. Stop clindoxyl. Apply a natural moisturizer such as one containing coconut milk and mint to hydrate & soothe your skin. Apply a papaya paste on the dark spots to get rid of them. Consult a dermatologist for further treatment.
