On average, our scalp has 100,000 hairs, cycling through their periods of growing, resting, falling out, and regenerating. Every hair follicle on your scalp goes through a phase where it rests before growing the next strand of hair. In this stage, the hair falls out. As a result of this, it’s normal to lose up to 100 strands of hair in a day.
The problem occurs when this cycle is disrupted, or when a hair follicle is damaged. In such cases, hair may begin to fall out more quickly than it regenerates, leading to hair loss problems such as a receding hairline, hair falling out in patches, or overall thinning.
Symptoms of Hair Loss.
Common symptoms of hair loss can be – hair loss in the parting of the hair in the mid-frontal area of the scalp (especially for women) for men, hair thinning on the top of the head, along with noticeable bald spots in the front are clear indications of ‘male pattern hair loss.
Additionally, if you find excessive hair than usual on the hairbrush after you brush your hair or more than the usual amount of hair in the drain after washing your hair, these are also signs of hair loss.
Top Hair Fall Reasons
A lot of things can affect the growth of our hair, from something like nutritional deficiencies (Iron, Zinc, Vitamin D, and Protein), dandruff, and an exceptionally oily scalp – which can be corrected relatively easily.
There are some serious causes of hair loss as well, like thyroid issues, hormonal imbalances, damage caused by long term heat application and chemical treatment.
Even chronic stress can be a cause of hair fall in some individuals, and hair thinning due to the hormone fluctuations around and after pregnancy and during Menopause is a routine occurrence for women.
Hair loss can also occur as a result of how you handle your hair, though. Among women, regularly tying the hair too tightly with rubber bands, and using hair brushes which are not wide-toothed, can cause hair loss – this is also known as Traction Alopecia.
Along with old age, genetics can also play a significant role in the loss of our hair – the gene for hair loss can be inherited from the father’s side of the family, or the mother’s side of the family, or both as well.
According to Ayurveda
hair fall occurs due to an imbalance of Pitta energy in the body. Regular hair oiling and head massage with a suitable Ayurvedic oil is one of the most effective hair loss remedies. We recommend adding regular oiling with hair growth oils to your hair care regime.
The most effective hair oiling treatment to prevent hair fall is Bringadi Hair Treatment Oil, enriched with the goodness of Sesame oil, Indian Gooseberry (Amla), Bhringraj, Indigo and Balloon Vine. It’s clinically proven to reduce hair fall by 94 percent, irrespective of the hair fall reason.
How To Control Hair Fall
1. Cleansing and Conditioning Your Hair
Firstly, a lot of us tend to use soaps for cleansing their scalp and hair, this can be very problematic for the hair and scalp health. Soaps are too harsh and stripping, as are a lot of shampoos. We must use a mild shampoo, one which will not strip our scalp of its natural oils entirely.
Also, simply washing the hair with shampoo will not do. A good conditioner should be applied on 3/4th of the hair (avoiding the scalp) every time you wash your hair. Most conditioners contain Amino acids, which help to nourish and repair the hair and reduce frizz and breakage of hair.
2.Healthy Diet and Regular Exercise To Prevent Hair Fall
Make sure you include food items that are rich in Vitamins A, C, D and E, Zinc, B Vitamins, Iron, Biotin, Protein, and Essential Fatty Acids.
You can try adding an iron and multivitamin supplement to your diet if you feel like you are still lacking.
When it comes to exercising, at least 20-30 minutes of cardio (running/ skipping rope/cycling) will help make a difference. Exercise helps in balancing out your hormones, helping those who suffer hair loss due to hormonal imbalances.
3. Avoid Harmful Treatments To Prevent Hair Fall
To keep your hair as healthy as possible, avoid any type of chemical treatments that damage the hair or scalp in form. Avoid coloring your hair with chemicals and only use natural dyes. For dying your hair chemically, bleaching is usually required, which is terrible for the health of your hair.
You should also avoid straightening/curling or perming your hair and avoid blow-drying your hair with the ‘Heat – on’ setting. Applying heat to the hair can cause the hair to essentially boil up – leaving it brittle and extremely prone to breakage.
4. Indulge in Nourishing Hair Treatments
When it comes to managing hair fall, there’s no better cure than the centuries-old wisdom for providing extra nourishment to your hair! Hair Oiling is a highly recommended practice in Ayurveda.
Oiling helps lessen the amount of breakage that occurs while washing the hair. The same goes for deep conditioning hair masks or protein hair masks. Just apply them for a few hours and wash off .
Best Hair Oils For Hair Fall
1. Coconut Oil
It is one of the most popular hair oils for growth. It is versatile as well as an excellent source for nourishing the skin. Rich in fatty acids, the oil deeply penetrates the hair follicles without evaporating. The carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals in coconut oil also are essential for hair health.
Coconut oil helps in promoting overall hair growth, making the hair soft and lustrous. It also protects the hair against heat damage, and repairs the weak and brittle hair strands. Rich in vitamin E and antioxidants, we can also use this oil as a conditioner. Coconut oil is suitable for all hair types and best suited to the ones with dull, damaged and dry hair and the ones with slow hair growth.
2. Sesame Oil
Sesame oil is one of the most popular oils used for hair growth in Ayurveda. Extracted from the sesame seeds, the oil is excellent for nourishing, conditioning, and promoting hair growth—the antimicrobial properties in sesame oil help in treating scalp infections.
Sesame oil, also known as the “Symbol of Immortality” when applied regularly, provides relief from headaches, baldness, greying of hair, and hair fall.
3. Neem Oil
Extracted from the seeds and fruits of the large evergreen Neem tree, this oil is full of antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties as well as fatty acids and Vitamin E.
Neem oil prevents dandruff and hair lice, conditions and repairs damaged cuticles, reduces redness and irritation caused by eczema, and promotes hair growth. It also helps in preventing hair loss and premature greying of the hair.
4. Almond Oil
It is also rich in fatty acids, antioxidants, proteins and magnesium which helps in reducing hair breakage and promoting hair growth. Along with moisturizing, almond oil also seals in the moisture preventing hair loss and breakage.
This oil is the best for those who are looking for fast hair growth or those who have dry, damaged, and dull hair. You can directly use almond oil straight from the bottle and can also warm it before use.
5. Brigandi Oil
Brigandi oil is a combination of Bhringraj oil (extracted from the leaves of Bhringraj tree) and a few hair-friendly herbs like Amla, Indigo, Sesame. and Balloon Vines. This oil is an intensive hair treatment that helps in preventing hair loss, scalp irritation, dandruff, and premature greying. Brigandi oil also helps in cooling and soothing the scalp, preventing scalp infections, and conditioning the hair.
Home Remedies For Hair Fall.
Massaging your scalp for a few minutes regularly is said to stimulate the scalp and help in improving the hair thickness. Not to mention how massaging your scalp can aid in reducing stress .
We recommend Coconut oil and Bringadi Oil in particular – they contain fatty acids that penetrate the hair shaft and reduce protein loss from the hair. Massage it into your scalp and hair and leave it for at least 1-2 hours, then wash it off. You can also use coconut oil as a leave-in conditioner if your hair does not become oily quickly after wash day, it helps improve the luster of the hair.
Aloe Vera is famous for its soothing and healing properties! We recommend putting pure aloe vera gel on your scalp and hair at least twice a week – it helps calm down an inflamed scalp and reduces dandruff.
Onion juice has been shown to successfully treat patchy Alopecia Areata by promoting hair growth and improving circulation. It is simple to apply as well – blend a few onions and squeeze out the juice, apply the juice to your scalp and hair, leave it in for 15-20 minutes, then rinse it off and shampoo your hair as usual.
In Ayurveda, Amla is the most preferred ingredient when it comes to maintaining hair health. It contains heaps of essential fatty acids that help in strengthening hair follicles and providing you with the luster you ever need. Rich in vitamin C, potent iron antioxidants, gallic acid, and carotene, Amla can help you in halting premature greying and providing blood circulation around the scalp, which indeed stimulates hair growth.
Reetha, also known as soapnuts, is another ingredient that has been used in the hair care regime for centuries. It contains saponin, which is responsible for keeping your hair healthy and soft.
You can prepare Reetha shampoo by taking several pieces of soap nuts and Shikakai points and boiling them in half a liter of water. Leave the mixture overnight, then strain it and use it as a shampoo.
