Things you're doing that cause hair loss

Hair is one of the assets that are essential in describing someone’s personality. Taking care of this vital asset is equally important to keep thick and dense strands on your head for a longer period of time. Most people don’t care about their hair until they start losing a lot of them. We do a lot of casual things intentionally or unintentionally that can lead towards extensive hair loss. Recent studies reveal that some daily life activities play a critical role in causing hair loss in men and women. These include:

Hair drying after a shower

Drying your hair vigorously right after the shower, especially with a thick and hard towel may lead to hair loss. Experts say that the hair is more likely to fall when it is wet, as at that time the hair follicles are weakest.

Over styling

While every hairstyle is not harmful, excessive use of chemical products for hair styling may harm the root of hairs. Certain types of styling creams and gels can dry off some vital oils from the scalp resulting in an extensive hair shed. Few low-quality hair products can also alter your hormones level and cause drastic hair loss. So, it is recommended to always consult a hair expert before using any unfamiliar hair products.

Excessive use of some hair styling tool such as hair dryer is also risky for the health of hairs. The tools that throw a lot of heat on your hairs may damage them.

Weight loss and bad diet

Some individuals crash their diets in order to lose some weight. While having a balanced diet is essential for health, some bad dieting routines may introduce a severe deficiency of important nutrients such as proteins. This lack of nutrient can result in drastic hair loss.

Dramatic weight loss can induce telogen effluvium which is one of the types of hair loss. Usually, hair loss appears 3 to 5 months after you start losing your weight.

Strenuous exercises and high energy sports

Doing strenuous exercise or playing high energy sports consume a lot of energy during the process. This high energy consumption affects all organs of the body including hairs and sometimes may lead to an extensive hair loss. Our experts suggest that if you are doing high energy activities, you should balance your intake of calories as well to escape from hair loss.

Hair pulling (trichotillomania)

Trichotillomania is a mental disorder in which a person tends to pull his or her own hair. The continuous hair pulling causes hair follicles to become weaker, ultimately causing hair loss.

The treatment of this kind of hair loss is possible if the patient ends hair pulling habit. It is necessary to treat this mental disorder to save the remaining hair on your head.
