25 Apr 2017
If you are suffering are suffering from Hairfall, I would suggest that you get your Kidney function test done. This might be a symptom of some Kidney Disorder. In the mean time, take Bamboo Silica capsules, one, everyday for a month. This will help to stop the hairfall.
But, remember it is important to know the root cause as well.
