Hair Fall - What Should You Do When You Are Suffering From It?

Hair fall is one of the most common problems encountered by people all over the world. Stress is inevitable on seeing a couple of hair strands from our pillow, study table, drainage in bathroom and what not. Many reasons (including social) makes us visit places, such as Barber shops / Parlours / Friends and Dermatologists.

Hairfall has multiple reasons to its credit:

  1. Hereditary: Genes are to be blamed (usually) for hair fall in maximum number of cases i.e the ‘Family Tree’. Anyone with Hairfall from our Father/Mother’s side can explain the same in our case.

  2. Diet: Anything except Fruits and Vegetables (of course the Junk Food) in the diet can be a reason for our malnourished hairs and hair fall. High protein diet is beneficial in most of the cases.

  3. Sleep: Regular sleeping habits can reduce the frequency of hair fall.

  4. Stress: Subconcious stress is one of the major reasons for not only Hairfall but also many common illnesses encountered in our day to day life. Try YOGA, avoid Stress.

  5. Parlour Procedures: We do an irreversible damage by treating our hairs with harsh chemicals/ Hair dryer. Please avoid.

  6. Hard water: If your tap gives you a fluoride/hard/boring water for bathing, its time to switch to a treated water.

  7. Medications: Excessive, unnecessary medications for some other diseases may also make your hairs to fall.

  8. Smoking: Avoid any kind of habit to restore your hair health.

  9. Dandruff: Hair oil application (usually) increases the dandruff of the scalp which leads to hairfall. Avoid doing so.

  10. Google Gyan: You may actually harm yourself by following the Tips on Google (which usually are devoid of any scientific proof).
