Treat Hair fall with Homeopathy
Introduction to hair fall
Hair is made up of a protein called keratin that is produced in hair follicles in the outer layer of skin. As new follicles produce hair cells, used cells are being pushed out through the surface of the skin at the rate of about 6 inches a year. This is termed as hair fall. The hair fall that people experience are strands of dead keratin cells that has been pushed out to make room for new cells. A normal person experiences a moderate hair fall throughout their life, losing about 50-100 hair strands per day. It is normal if you find hair strands falling off while brushing your hair.Most people normally shed 50-100 hair strands per day. This normally doesn’t cause any obvious thinning of scalp because new hair grows instantaneously by covering for the hair loss. Hair loss occurs when this cycle of hair growth and shedding is disrupted or when the hair follicle is destroyed and replaced with scar tissue.
Causes and triggers:
The exact cause of hair loss may not be fully understood, but it's usually related to one or more of the following factors:
- Medical conditions
- Side effects of medicines
- Family history (heredity
- Hormonal changes
- Heredity causes:
The most common cause of hair loss is the heredity condition called male-pattern baldness or female baldness. It is more common in males than female and is caused by genetic variations. It gradually occurs with age in males with a prominent receding hairline and in females with thinning of hair. Heredity also affects the age at which you begin to lose hair, the rate of hair loss and the extent of baldness. Pattern baldness is most common in men and can begin as early as puberty. This type of hair loss may involve both hair thinning and reduction.
Hormonal changes and imbalances can cause hair loss in people.Several reasons like pregnancy, childbirth and onset of menopause causes hair fall in people. Thyroid gland problems can also cause hair loss in people.
In this type of hair fall loss, the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles not knowing that they are part of the body and this sudden attacking leads to thinning of hair and baldness. This particular autoimmune disease is called Alopecia Areta.
Infections, such as ringworm, can invade the hair and skin of your scalp, leading to scaly patches and hair loss. Once infections are treated, hair generally grows back.
This condition, also called trichotillomania causes people to have antantalizing urge to pull out their hair, whether it's from the scalp, the eyebrows or other areas of the body.
Hair loss can be caused by drugs used for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, high blood pressure and birth control. Intake of too much vitamin A may cause hair loss as well.
Massaging essential oils on the scalp like coconut, olive oil and almond oil can activate the hair follicles for healthy generation of hair strands. This will also help stimulate circulation to improve vitality.
