Hair today, gone tomorrow…
Losing hair? Instead of worrying about it, get to the root cause and knock out the things that are causing your precious hair to fall.
A gentle stroking of your hair, a shower, or simply an attempt to keep your mane in place using your hairbrush – all of these can remind you of the fact that you are losing your precious hair drastically. How many of you have felt that your hairbrush is your enemy? Many of you. So then, what is it that causes hair loss? Let’s find out.
Stress, genetic history in hair fall, a less than stellar eating routine and vitamin inadequacies can all contribute.
Instead of worrying about the situation, it would be a better choice to understand the root cause of it, and try and prevent the hair loss.
Here are a few reasons behind hair fall:
Poor Diet: As we sow, so shall we reap. Even though initially this might not make sense in terms of hair loss, yet, it is essential that we understand how much our diet impacts our hair. A diet which is missing out on vitamins, proteins and minerals can cause hair fall. Indulging in a solid diet which consists of lean meats, vitamins and minerals can be very helpful. Lack of Vitamin B can lead to hair loss. Similarly, Vitamin E is needed to help cope with it. The moral of the story is to consume food that’s rich in such elements, so that hair loss become a thing of your past!
Stress: How many times have you had your tummy in knots just before an important meeting? Have you felt irritation take charge of your emotions when even trivial happens? Many times, perhaps. Stress is omnipresent, and most people experience it on a daily basis. While it’s common knowledge that it can cause several ailments such a blood pressure, did you know that it could be the culprit behind your receding hairline? In fact, worrying over it can increase the problem rather than solving it. Meditation or indulging in outdoor activities can help divert and relax the mind.
Genetics: Do you know who is to blamed for your hair loss? In most cases, your lineage! Hair loss, like other things, can be passed on from generation to generation. So, the next time you find a bunch of hair on the floor of your bathroom, one of your ancestors might be chucking up there! In fact, a particular condition called Alopecia Areata – a cause for hair fall – can be passed on genetically. There are many remedial solutions to regain and retain hair. Consulting a hair specialist to learn how to stop hair fall can help solve the problem.
Pregnancy: This is one of the most beautiful phases for any woman. However, while she’s busy making something new, she might be losing something she already has – her hair! Many anticipating moms tend to lose hair by the changes in hormones or vitamin or mineral inadequacies. Pregnant women are advised to take vitamin supplements which are very beneficial for the body and the hair.
Birth Control: Many women take contraceptive pills, which are quite strong and can cause hair to shed. If there is still major hair loss after the consumption of contraceptive pills a consultation with the doctor or stopping the medicine can help drastically.
Too much Vitamin A: While we discussed how deficiency of certain vitamins can lead to hair fall, there’s one Vitamin that shouldn’t be consumed excessively. Excess consumption of Vitamin A can cause hair fall. You should always keep a check on the amount of Vitamin A present in your diet.
Hair Styling: It’s great to have well-groomed hair, isn’t it? I mean, imagine the number of heads you can turn by having well-styled hair. But also imagine the number of heads you’ll turn if your hair is on a hide and seek spree! Many women tend to try new products to change their appearance through their hair color or hair styles. Hair products, blow dryers, and hair straightening can cause severe damage to the hair and weaken the hair follicles.It is best to avoid over styling the hair and using a combination of hair products.
Weight Loss: For this generation, weight loss is the new fad. Even though being obese is not what the doctor prescribes, yet taking extreme measures to shed weight suddenly contributes to hair loss and balding. Drop in glucose levels leads to hair diminishing.
Weather: Climatic conditions surprisingly can also cause hair fall. Exposing the hair to the sun, rain, and dust can cause the hair to become dry and damaged. Protecting the hair with a scarf before heading out can avoid damage from dust, dirt and harmful U.V rays.
Anaemia: Did you know that having good blood count is not only important for your health, it’s much needed for your hair, too! Is the inadequacy of iron, debilitates hair and makes it fall. It is fundamental to incorporate iron in your eating routine and if the issue holds on, consulting a hair specialist is necessary.
Thyroid: It is the biggest endocrine organ in charge of delivering hormones, which control the digestion in the body. Over creation or low levels in the generation of hormones can now and again cause hair fall.
(PCOS) Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: PCOS is a common hormonal imbalance faced by many women globally. The hormonal imbalance can trigger severe hair thinning and prompt hair fall.
Scalp Infection: A typical scalp contamination caused because of ringworm can lead to baldness in patches.
Keeping the body healthy is very important and beneficial for your health and your hair. Focusing on making healthy changes through diet and lifestyle can help in controlling and stopping hair fall.
