Hair fall can be pretty concerning to many of us. Before you stress out (remember: stress is a potential trigger, after all), understand that there is a difference between hair fall and hair loss: excessive hair fall (more than 50-100 strands) is usually a temporary occurrence that comes as a result of some sort of stress to the body (e.g. Weight loss, medication, worrying about hair shedding) that causes hair damage and breakage. Meanwhile, hair loss happens when hair is unable to grow and requires medical treatment to fix. Treating excessive hair fall is a little simpler because things usually start to improve when this stress is relieved - achievable by changing up your diet, exercising or trying nourishing hair products to keep your scalp and hair healthy. Take a look at some of these below.
Nioxin is a pretty well-known brand when it comes to dealing with hair fall. System 1 is the first step of its 3-part system, and is specifically meant to cleanse the scalp of sebum and other environmental debris that could potentially be holding back hair growth. Besides that, it also strengthens and amplifies the texture of each hair follicle, increasing overall fullness and volume while equipping it with enough thickness to protect against breakage.
While dandruff may not directly cause hair loss, the act of scratching the scalp can cause breakage and hair fall. This award-winning shampoo from Paul Mitchell contains nourishing ingredients like natural tea tree oil, lavender and peppermint, which not only free the scalp of dirt and oil, but also do so without taking away needed moisture from the hair and scalp. That way, dandruff is effectively reduced and the hair is kept looking smooth and healthy.

Made from the essence of natural organic plants, this product gives hair the moisture it needs to be kept healthy and reduces the occurrence of hair thinning and damage.

Castor oil is possibly one of the best ingredients to help with hair fall as it is extremely nourishing and full of hydration. This particular serum is as versatile as it gets. Besides improving and strengthening hair texture, it can also be massaged into the scalp and skin to balance out excess oils and reduce the amount of debris and sebum hiding in the pores. It can also be applied on the brows to encourage growth (Cara Delevigne who?).
