Hair loss occurs due to various reasons. Hair loss can be due to disorders affecting the hair follicle , damage to the hair shaft or due to variations in the hair cycle growth. Hair growth occurs in different cycles the active growing cycle called Anagen and the resting phase called Telogen. On the scalp majority of the scalp hair are in the active anagen phase and a small percentage in the resting phase which are shed (normally around 100 to 200 per day)
Hair fall starts months after the inciting cause but is always self-limited and reversible if the offending cause is corrected or resolved. A cause based approach at RIVA , after analyzing the hair shaft and hair follicle promises hair growth.
