Hair Fall - What Are The Causes Behind It?

Witnessing broken strands of hair on the towel or on the comb after having a bath is certainly not a pleasant sight. Every other person these days is exposed to hair fall problems, irrespective of age and gender. Studies reveal that 40% of women and 40% of men experience hair fall by the ages of 50 years and 35 years respectively.

Causes-

Some of the common causes of hair fall include-

  • Genetic/family history
  • Hormonal changes during PCOSmenopause or pregnancy
  • Nutritional deficiency
  • Stress/depression
  • Critical illness treatment like chemotherapy
  • Underlying conditions such as thyroid or lupus
  • Certain medications like antidepressants
  • Poor lifestyle choice

Apart from these, other factors may also cause hair fall.

Many people fall for hair styling techniques including blow drying, straightening and smoothening. They certainly make you look good, but frequent use of such hair care techniques and chemical products damage your hair follicles. This eventually leads to hair fall.

How is the condition diagnosed?

Persistent loss of hair usually indicates a repressed health issue. In that case, it is important to determine the actual cause of the condition. For that, your doctor may use any of the following techniques-

  1. Physical examination of your overall health
  2. Biopsy of the scalp (if he suspects an autoimmune skin disease)

Treating hair fall with Homeopathy-

Millions of people including doctors claim that Homeopathy is an effective treatment method of curing both chronic and acute health conditions.

  1. Unlike conventional methods that only focus on treating the symptoms of a condition, Homeopathy works to identify the root cause of the condition and eliminates it from within, thereby preventing its recurrence.
  2. Homeopathy attempts to improve your metabolism and correct your digestive system, thereby promoting healthy hormones. Healthy hormones play a vital role in reducing hair fall problem.
  3. Homeopathic remedies are extracted from different plants, herbs and natural substances. Medications or supplements prepared from the extracts of shellfish and oyster are rich in zinc, which helps in hair keratin synthesis. Fish oil and Flaxseed oil rich in omega-3 nourish your hair follicles and prevent hair fall and breakage.

The benefits of homeopathic treatment are manifold - it is effective, long lasting and safe, which is why one should consider placing their faith in Homeopathy.
