How to prevent hair loss when you're on a weight loss diet

Case Study

Hetal, 32, a housewife started with a weight loss program 3 months ago after which she lost about 10kg. But now, she has started losing a lot of hair and is extremely worried about it. Hetal is not alone. With unreasonable weight loss goals and crash diets becoming a fad, the trend of losing hair is becoming a very common phenomenon among the weight-watchers. Dietary restrictions common in crash diets lead to the deficiency of vital micronutrients like biotin, patothenate, and essential fatty acids, thereby depriving the hair roots of nourishment, making them dry and rough, ultimately leading to hair fall.
