Hair fall is a common issue faced by both men and women. Due to various factors, hair fall can occur even in teenagers and adults. Hair fall is a natural process and each day a certain amount of hair fall off and new hair strands grow in place of lost hair. In some cases, the hair follicles may get weak and this prevents the growth of new hair strands. On the long run, the hair becomes thin and weak causing major hair fall problems.
Causes of hair loss
Numerous factors including stress, tension, anger, anxiety, unhygienic scalp, dandruff, infections and inadequate nutrition can lead to hair loss. An improper diet including high intake of fried foods, spicy, salty, and fermented foods, high tea and coffee consumptions, excessive consumption of alcohol and meat can lead to the aggravation of Pitta Dosha in the body. This can lead to the accumulation of dead skin cells in the scalp causing hair fall.
Excess use of hair styling agent also accounts for hair loss as they are composed of harsh chemicals. If not used in moderate amounts, these chemicals can damage the hair follicles and prevent hair growth. Hormonal imbalance is also considered as a cause for hair fall in women. Irregular washing and cleaning of hair can cause accumulation of dirt on the scalp and weaken the hair roots causing severe hair fall. All these factors increase the risk of hair loss and also interfere with the growth of new hair strands from the hair follicle.
