What Is It?

What Can I Do About It?

Hair Fall

Excessive hair shedding from the roots  

Stimulate the scalp and fortify roots to make them more resilient

Hair Loss

Excessive shedding from the roots where a significant number of new strands do not replace ones that have fallen out

Address the reason behind shedding and create better scalp conditions to stimulate hair growth 

Hair Density

The number of strands of hair on your scalp

Increase the duration your hair strands stay on the scalp before these naturally fall out

Hair Fall  
Hair Fall
Hair fall is the general term for hair shedding and strand breakage but isn’t yet as progressive or near-permanent as hair loss. With hair fall, the roots where your strands grow are still very much viable but they’re just either shedding more than usual.
What to do about hair fall?
The recommended route to treat hair fall is to stimulate the scalp and fortify the strands to hold better on the scalp. You can explore complete hair care lines with active ingredients that can better manage hair fall.
Hair Loss
Hair Loss
Hair loss is a condition where new hairs do not replace ones that have fallen out. Understandably, learning you have hair loss can be stressful, but hair science has come a long way in mitigating these concerns. 
If you think you are experiencing severe hair loss, visit your doctor to assess your health, history, and condition.
What can I do about it?
Health and genetics are the primary drivers of hair loss. Once you’ve determined the cause then you can start exploring options for both prevention and treatment. Although certain conditions cannot be reversed, it would be good to get ahead of them by making sure you give your scalp the best care it can receive.
Hair Density
Hair Density
Your hair density is measured by how many strands of hair you grow per square inch along your scalp. On average, a human head typically has anywhere between 80,000 to 120,000 strands. But sometimes hair density can decrease due to factors like genetics, age, as well as your regular hair care routine.
What to do if you have low-density hair?
Did you have thicker hair when you were younger but now it has thinned out? If so, you may need a hair density treatment. Hair densers are made to create the best conditions on your scalp for better hair growth.
