Yes and No.

Manufacturers of hair care shampoos take the utmost care when developing their products and these have to undergo strict quality control as well as clinical trials on people with real hair to see that the shampoos and other products do not damage hair.

But even with all this care taken to see that shampoos are safe for use, there are many chemicals in shampoos, some of which your skin may have an allergic reaction to and cause your hair to fall. But the good news is that it will be a temporary case of "hair fall" and not hair loss. Once you switch brands, even your hair fall problem should be taken care of.

Real hair loss is due to hereditary, hormonal and dietary factors. If hair is coming out in clumps, or you notice circular patches of balding spots, however, that is a sign of real head hair loss.

Many times when people change their shampoos they pay more attention to their hair and scalp. If at this time their hair appears shinier and manageable they naturally credit the shampoo. In the same vein, if they see that something is not quite right and they are losing hair, then obviously the shampoo gets blamed irrespective of whether the hair loss has just started or has been going on for some time.

The fact is that whichever shampoo you use while washing your hair, you are going to experience hair fall due to the simple act of washing. The acceptable range of hair loss is about 100 strands of hair a day. This amount of hair fall is normal and does not constitute hair loss.

Chemical procedures such as 'hair perming', vigorous combing of wet hair, and brushing of hair can also cause you to lose hair and this should not be blamed on the shampoo that you use.

The fact of the matter is that although shampoos do make your hair fall, it is normal hair loss and there is no evidence to suggest that using shampoos results in hair loss irrespective of which type you use.

If so use Shampoos that are designed to remove some of the oils from your hair but without stripping your hair of it's natural oils Do you have dry hair? If so use shampoos that are designed to put moisture back in the hair. The best shampoos are solely up to you. It's the brand you like and what works for you.

Is natural shampoo better for hair loss?

No, it is not. The hair care industry with its numerous hair cosmetics was engaged in providing products which were to make hair shinier, fuller, and silkier; in effect more beautiful. But now they have shifted their sights from that, to developing products that claim to stop hair loss as well as to help with hair growth. Many shampoos such as those with panthenol (vitamin B-5), or 2-in-1 shampoos and also �natural� shampoos are being advertised as the better option for preventing hair loss. But there is no scientific proof to back such claims that a shampoo can stop hair loss or that a natural shampoo is better for hair loss than any other type. According to the American laws, the Food and Drug Association (FDA) requires any manufacturer of any product claiming to prevent hair loss or assist in growth of hair, to file a new drug application. But so far the FDA has not approved any cosmetic product; natural shampoo or otherwise, for re-growth of hair. What natural shampoos do is, coat the hair strands with some oils and natural substances which can help to retain moisture in the hair strands and make them appear fuller. This just increases the volume of the hair and that too temporarily. The increased volume may lead you to believe that you have grown new hair but in no way can any natural shampoo achieve that. The FDA is taking measures to stop manufacturers of shampoos and other hair cosmetics from making unsubstantiated claims about the usefulness of their products in treating hair loss. The FDA has even issued a warning to Paramus, N.J., the makers of �Natural Hairs� for claiming that their natural shampoos and products could prevent hair loss and grow new hair. What you as a consumer and one suffering from hair loss needs to remember is that, there is no �secret� or magical ingredient in any natural shampoo that can help with your hair loss. And if there ever is to be one, it is definitely not going to remain a secret for long.

What are some solutions for hair loss?

Solutions for hair loss depends on reasons. Medications.If hair loss is caused due to some medication taken, the best treatment in this case would be to stop taking such medication (if possible). Shampoos, gels, cosmetics. Some chemicals in products such as gels, shampoos, or other cosmetics, can react with your skin and cause hair loss. The best option in such cases would be to change to different brands to find one that your skin is suited to. Heredity and genetic make up, pattern baldness.There are a over the counter of medications that are available to treat the condition. But scientific research and clinical trials have shown that only two drugs have positive significant effect on hair loss. * Propecia (finasteride) is available as a pill to be taken daily. * Rogaine (minoxidil) is a solution applied locally to the scalp. Both these drugs have proved to be effective treatments for hair loss. But what is best for an individual cannot be standardized as you might benefit more from one and someone else from the other. These drugs are available in the online shops.
