Hairs are considered as integral part of your beauty and appearance and by far most noticed and much cared component of the body. Both quantity & quality of hairs are matter of concern for every individual as they directly affect our appearance and in some cases level of confidence also.
Hair is produced in the hair follicle present in the skin. Hair grows and stays in the hair follicle for many years. After that it falls and is replaced by a new hair. The average adult head has about 100,000 to 150,000 hairs and loses up to 100 of them a day which is quite normal and not a cause for alarm.
New hair normally replaces the lost hair, but this doesn’t always happen. Hair loss can develop gradually over years or happen abruptly and it can be permanent or temporary. Hair fall (alopecia) is a common problem that affects most people at some time in their lives.
There can be many types of alopecia like- male-pattern hair loss, female-pattern hair loss, alopecia areata, and a thinning of hair known as telogen effluvium.
Symptoms of hair loss:
Receding of the hairline on the forehead & top (Male pattern hair loss)
Thinning of hairs on top of the head (Female pattern hair loss).
Circular or patchy bald spots on the scalp or beard. (This is a sign of ringworm). It may be accompanied by broken hair, redness, swelling and, at times, oozing.
There may also be dandruff, skin lesions, and scarring
Causes of Hair Loss:
Hair loss may be linked to a person’s genetics/ heredity or family history
Effect of testosterone hormone in both men & women
Erratic and irregular lifestyle – late nights and long hours
Environmental factors such as pollution and climate
Stress, anxiety and tension and inadequate sleep or rest
Hair Loss & Ayurveda:
In Ayurveda, hair fall is a direct by-product of the quality of your bone tissue. If there is weakness in the bone tissue, hair loss is a natural result.
In Ayurveda, the texture of your hair will depend the imbalances that you have in your constitution.
Vitiated Vata dosha leads to excessively dry, frizzy and brittle hairs
Vitiated Pitta dosha leads to receding hairline and thinning texture of hairs. The heat in the scalp leads to colour changes like greying of hairs
Vitiated Kapha dosha leads to excessively oily and sticky hairs. This can lead to blocked hairfollicles & hair fall. Normal kapha hair is thick.
