Hair fall is part of the body’s natural recyclable process. Although it is normal for you to lose 50 to 100 hair strands per day, hair fall can be reduced even further.
In a year hair grows at an average of six inches, with dozing periods, and after four to five years they fall out. Thinning hair and hair loss arises when the increasing number of hair strands goes into a resting condition when the lost hair strands are not replaced.
There are several causes for hair loss; here are some of the major causes of hair fall.
Family ancestry can also be a reason to hair loss because of heredity. Another major reason for hair fall would be because of Hormonal Imbalance. This happens if we do not consume nutritious food like fresh fruits and vegetables, high protein grains etc. There are certain situations when you would even start losing hair due sudden illness and infectious diseases too.
It is also proven that smoking could increase the level of major androgenic hormones in the body, such as DHEA, androstenedione, testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the hormone most closely linked to hair loss. Therefore the rate at which hair falls off is increased due to smoking.
Consumption of red meat on a day today basis can also increase the rate of hair loss as they contain Black grams since these are DHT activators and therefore induce hair loss.
We tend to use hair dryers, hair gel, hair spray and several other cosmetics to our hair which causes a great damage to our hair. If such cosmetics are applied our hair would lose it natural form and would be prone to breakage easily. Any hairstyle that’s puts a lot of pressure on the hair like tight ponytails, curlers and if elastic bands and hair clips are tight over your hair strands could also affect your hair and damage them.
These are some of the ways by which you could lose your hair. Take proper care and if needed, even consult a dermatologist for further help.
