Starting at the roots will mean hair with boosted strength and density that oozes health and radiance.

Q: How do I recognize if I have a hair fall problem?

A: "well, it is normal to have 50 to one hundred hairs failing in one, day - most people don’t know that. But if you are losing more hairs it could be described as a problem"

Q: How do I recognize the difference between losing a good hair and losing a bad one?

A: "I tell my patients to pull a piece of hair out and hold it out, if there is a little bulb at the end of the hair it is in the falling out phase, so it"s probably good that it’s falling out."

Q: I am losing a lot of hair since of late. Is it because of wrong habits I’ve been following these days?

A: "That is a common misconception among a lot of people. The current state of your hair may be affected by your hair habits and life habits that were prevalent four to six months ago. So what’s happening to your hair now is not a snapshot but rather the result of your habits since 4 - 6 months ago."

Q: I lead a very hectic and stressful life. Do you think it affects the condition of my hair?

A: "Stress is one of the most common causes for unhealthy scalp often resulting in hair loss, try and pinpoint areas in your life that are causing you anxiety and work on improving them"

Q: Do I have to rub in the shampoo to get good results?

A: "No, rubbing your head vigorously will damage your scalp. Try to massage rather than scratch your scalp when you are applying Sunsilk Hair Fall Solution shampoo"

Q: I have heard that a good intake of water helps maintain good hair. How much water should I drink a day?

A: "Your diet plays an important part in keeping your hair in good condition. Drinking two litres of water daily will help."

Q: How soon will I see results by using your Co-creation?

A: "Well I must tell you that you will not see results with just one use, but you will see results within 3 - 6 weeks of use."
