Orange for Hair Loss

Q:

Doctor Mohebi,
I have heard having an orange a day keep your hair healthy and may thicken your hair.
Is it true?

A:

Taking an Orange a Day is a good healthy habit. In fact, taking any fruit on a regular basis can help get reasonable amount of fiber and vitamins depends on the type of fruit you are taking. However, there is no scientific reason that prove taking Orange can help your hair loss condition. There is no active hair loss component in orange that makes it an exceptional fruit for hair loss treatment or prevention.

If you have hair loss, you need to see a hair specialist and get started with a macro and microscopic evaluation of your hair. Your doctor may need to prescribe hair loss medications that can help slow down your hair loss condition.

Thanks,
