Kindly suggest the reason behind all this and some natural cure to regain my silky and thick hair. I have tried: taking ayurvedic medicine from 2 months.. The hair-fall has decreased. But when I oil my hair, hair-fall again increases, I am using rosemary oil, papaya shampoo but that shampoo drys my hair.
