Hair loss is a condition that affects approximately 60 per cent of women and 80 per cent of men at some point in their lives. Demanding lifestyles and stress are the major causes of hair loss in India apart from hormonal imbalance and medication. Dr Batra's has recently launched their first B-perfect clinic in Pune. "Hair loss can be the result of nutritional deficiency, emotional distress or any other underlying disorder and illness," a statement issued by Dr Batra's clinic said. Trichologists look at hair loss problems in a holistic way. Healthy, good looking hair improves a person's quality of life, including interaction with people, relationships, success at workplace and business. On the other hand hair loss affects a person's psyche — most ofthe time with loss of self esteem. "There's a growing awareness about Trichology, and more people want to be treated for their particular hair condition," the statement added.
