Every day you lose almost 50 to 100 hair. But it’s nothing to worry about because it’s a natural phenomenon. It’s the part of our hair regrowth cycle in which there are 03 phases, the growth phase, the shedding phase and the resting phase.
But if you are experiencing occasional or excessive hair shedding then it could be due to the following reasons:
Hair losing its gloss and strength is natural as we get old. But if you are a smoker then keep in mind that smoking will eventually destroy your health by speeding up your aging process. Due to which you may have to suffer from premature baldness.
Any emotional or physically disturbing event could lead to dull, rough and thin hair. If you are experiencing any sort of stress then it’s important to reduce it. Otherwise, too much stress can force your hair follicles to go into the “resting phase”.
Traumatic situations for hair which can make them dull, brittle and rough include not washing hair for prolonged periods, hectic routine, stressful events, medical conditions etc.
If you don’t have a healthy diet then you won’t be able to get enough important nutrients that nourish your hair. And possibility of hair thinning and of hair loss increases drastically. Nutrients or vitamins deficiency can only be figured out via performing the blood test.
Zinc and iron are the most important nutrients for a healthy body and hair. Getting a necessary amount of essential nutrients can bring back the strength, shine, and texture of your hair.
Every person needs an 8-hour sleep for a healthy and energetic body. Lack of sleep declines the overall body’s strength, including the capability to absorb nutrients, which are essential for the health of your hair.
A weak body results in feeble, coarse and damaged hair. So its essential that you sleep for at least 8 hours a day.
Excessive use of heating tools like straighter, curlers, blow dryer or long-lasting chemical hair dye colors, will affect the overall health and texture of your hair in long run.
If you have a habit of making tight hairstyles like a tight ponytail, braid etc. then it would be better if you stop doing so. Instead, make loose hair up-dos so that your hair will get enough amount of air to keep itself fresh and be released of the tension caused by tighter hair do’s.
Tight hairstyles will make your hair thin, coarse and in the end, your hair will start falling out.
If you don’t treat your dandruff in time, then it could spur to a more aggressive phase which can be difficult to treat and will eventually cause hair loss. Using anti-dandruff shampoos, sometimes may not be a right choice in treating your dandruff. Because it contains chemicals which can damage your hair further.
Only a suitable medicine prescribed by the trichologist can treat your dandruff safely and effectively.
There are many home cures, homeopathic solutions, allopathic medicines, hair loss products, scalp injections available these days to cure hair loss.
But it doesn’t mean you should be using them without seeking proper guidance because it can lead to serious side effects including scaring, itching, soreness and irritating. So it’s best not to self-diagnose or self-medicate yourself.
Visiting a trichologist early is always a good idea. The trichologist will examine your scalp carefully and will tell you the actual reason for your hair loss, then he may recommend you certain medications or the hair regrowth products, if your hair loss is still at its early stages.
But if your hair has progressed to advanced stages then the trichologist will recommend you to use a HairMax laser band to regrow and nourish the existing or lost hair follicles.
