Avoid Harsh Brushes And Combs
Brushing is good when you wanna get rid of all the tangles but if the brush is too harsh on your hair, you may suffer from more hair loss. Always use a brush with soft bristles or a comb that is wide-toothed. Do not comb your hair when wet, if you do, do it with a wide-toothed comb and not a brush. And always work your way up. When combing your hair always start untangling from the bottom and then work your way up.
Lastly, do not go for any harsh hair treatments as the hair follicles lose strength and a harsh treatment can do more damage than good. I had my hair straightened and that resulted in me suffering from alopecia. Check with a dermatologist if you are having major hair fall.
