How to fight hair fall effectively?

“Treat your hair like royalty, it’s the crown you never take off.” There is no doubt that HAIR FALL- the two words make up the shortest horror story for any person in the World.

It is a common problem due to stress and unhealthy lifestyle. We often try various solutions to combat hair fall but the important question is the underlying cause of the issue.

If you are losing about 100-125 strands a day, it is normal but anything more is excessive and alarming.

What are the signs of hair fall?

  • Hair on your brush, on the floor, in showers, on your pillows, or in the sink.
  • Patches of thinner or missing hair, including a part on the top of your head that gets wider.
  • Visible scalp skin through hair.
  • Having thinner ponytails.
  • Seeing hair breakage.

What are the causes of hair fall?

  1. Stress is a key to hair fall problems, but it is not permanent. It is recoverable with managing your emotions and stress level.
  2. Overuse of hair styling devices like flat irons, curling tongs and blow dryers damage your hair and it’s roots by absorbing all the moisture in the hair.
  3. What we eat is what appears on our skin and hair. Our diet should have plenty of proteins, iron, vitamins especially vit B. Nourishment from within is the most important to strengthen your hair.
  4. Aging does not mean only greys but also cause hair fall. With age, hair get weak and thin. Hair greys can be covered by hair dye and colour but hair fall can not be covered.
  5. Certain medication like allopathic medication causes temporary fall but is reversible.
  6. Clogged pores due to dirt and sweat create an unpleasant environment for hair growth. Healthy scalp is important for healthy hair.

What is the solution?

  1. Use the right hair fall control products to deal with hair fall. If you are using the right products the problem can be easily dealt with.
  2. Opt out of regular styling and use of heat products. If hair styling is important then you must use heat protection serum and spray.
  3. Make sure to eat greens, amino acids, eggs, meat and dairy products. Use the right amount with the right combinations and you can see the positive results.
  4. Hydration is the key! Hair fall is caused by lack of moisture. Water makes your hair more flexible and less brittle.
  5. Use wide tooth comb to untangle your hair. You must work bottom to the top.
  6. Friction is the most common reason to cause hair fall, satin pillowcase is one way to avoid friction and breakage.

Prevention when it is due to a disease, aging, heredity, or injury then prevention may not be possible. But if one follows the above stated solutions then hair fall may get better. If the problem still prevails then you must visit a board-certified dermatologist.
