You seem to have developed dryness in the nose and brittle hair. Wearing a face mask while travelling and applying a moisturizer in the nose (Vaseline or oil) at bed time, may give you instant relief. The cause of hair fall needs to be ascertained first, before specific therapy can be prescribed. Common causes include, dry scalp (due to dandruff or fungal infection), dry hair (due to exposure to excessive dust or pollution), poor nutrition (protein and vitamin deficiency), Iron deficiency anemia, hypothyroidism or physical or emotional stress. You should visit a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and further management of your hair fall.
