It is a well known fact that happy people fall ill less often than those who are constantly unhappy. If you look at it that way, hair fall too is a type of illness. So, don’t stress the little things. Be happy and see your hair fall reduce, and then get happier.
Too much junk food is definitely not good for your weight, but, guess what?! It’s not great for your hair either.

This means that your hair isn’t getting the essential nutrients it needs for healthy growth, resulting in hair fall. Hence, eat right!
