Project Hare Care - What are the causes of hair fall?

 

Hair fall is the common problem among people and there are many reasons behind it. Normally we shed our hair but if you find it more than usual than it's a matter of concern. I have listed few causes:

1. Hereditary : Observe the pattern of hair loss in your family if it is in the same pattern then this is a genetic cause of hair loss. It starts with thinning of hair and start falling in a pattern similar to your siblings or parents.

2. Stressful Life: Lifestyle is one of the major causes of hair fall. It all depends on the type of sleep and duration of sleep. Stress is not that how much burden you have, it all depends on what's your attitude of taking your work. 

3. Pregnancy: This is also a major cause when women face hair fall but this is only for some period. Pregnancy brings hormonal change in the body  which needs time to adjust, due to this reason women faced hair fall problem.

4. Less nutritious food: Your skin and hair are like the mirror of your food. They both will react same as the quality of your food.  Nutritious food is necessary for all, so everybody has to focus on it. Junk food and the bad habit of taking food is very hazardous to hair and skin. 

5. Hairstyle : Nowadays women and men, both are very conscious  for their hairstyle, so they opt different hairstyle and use electronic products on hair which initially worsen the quality of hair and then be the reason of hair fall.

6. PCOS: It is a common hormonal disorder which affects the menstrual cycle and increases the chances of infertility.  PCOS is also a reason of major hair fall but increases facial hair and body hair. For more details you can also read my post on PCOS .

7. Lack of cleanliness: Washing your hair is the common hygiene which you maintain for heathy hair. If you wash your hair too frequently or improper washing then it will also be a reason of hair fall. Over washing will imbalance pH balance of hair which should be 4.5 to 5.5. 

8. Weak Immune system: Week immune system is the cause of every disease, so it also affects your hair and resultant hair loss. Immune system needs a balanced diet which contains vitamins, protein, carbohydrate, iron, minerals etc.

9. Major Surgery: If there is any patient who has gone through a major surgery then also he/she can face the hair fall problem.

  2. Hair fall is a serious issue. Coming from a family where baldness runs in our genes, till recently I did not know if a cure is really possible. I used to group all baldness into one category and concluded nothing is possible once hair starts to fall. But my cousin had overcome hairfall by using right hair care remedies. Recently a doctor adviced my daughter about psoriasis in the scalp that may contribute to hair loss. Infact medicine worked. i shall wait for your post to learn more about your remedies.0

  4. Hair care is a very important and a hygienic routine for both men and women. Nobody wants to go out with a frizzy, dry and unhealthy hair. ... Taking care of your hair is as important as any other part of the body. While you tend to cover other body parts your hair is subjected to a lot of pollution, dirt and chemicals.

  5. Hair is the crowning glory and leads to lots of stress if it starts falling or thinning. That's a long and detailed list of all the valid reasons for hair-fall.I have been battling it too but now I have created my own concoction or remedy for it. I swear by coconut oil. I add hibiscus flowers to it, with a little bit of castor oil and Vitamin E capsules. In a few months my hair fall stopped, my hair is longer thicker after using this oil regularly.

  12. My hair fall is mainly due to my sleep pattern that has changed and the horrible water that I get here to wash my hair. I have shifted to some new onion hair oil and that seems to be helping with the growth.
