Hair loss has become an international epidemic; it’s predicted that the next generation will be nearly half bald. Have we evolved? Is there a known reason for hair loss? Is there any natural way to prevent hair loss? Is hair grafting a last-ditch effort?

Before we go any further, there is something you must know. In a typical day, anywhere from fifty to one hundred hairs will come out of your head.

Don’t freak out if you see a hair on your shirt, pullover or in the bathroom. It’s possible that this is a perfectly typical physiological occurrence. When hairs shed at a faster rate than they grow, we say that our hair is “falling out.”

So a decrease in hair growth is the primary cause of hair loss.

Everyone is curious about their thinning hair. All the solutions are shown here, in order:

The Root of Your Hair Loss

The drought we’re experiencing right now is the root cause of this whole mess. The passage of time has left us increasingly parched. Our actions, our diets, and our interpersonal connections are all dry, and this parchedness swiftly shows up in our hair. Hair follicles are where individual hairs become connected to the body. The sebaceous glands supply the nutrients needed by these hair follicles. These sebaceous glands regulate hair development and nourish the hair. These sebaceous glands produce sebum, a fatty secretion that nourishes hair from the inside out. You need to eat well if you want your hair to grow faster.

Reduced unctuousness in the diet reduces the flow of high-quality nourishment to the hairs, which in turn causes continued hair loss. This is analogous to the season of autumn, when the oiliness of nature decreases and the leaves begin to fall. The body’s hairs follow the same pattern. Consequently, this is crucial for maintaining a healthy and satisfying diet.

Methods for Preventing Hair Loss

The same external dryness causes hair loss. Keratins, the protein building blocks of hair, are very fragile. We need to offer the right amount of the oil to hair and scalp to counteract the dryness. There’s a common misconception that using hair oil will cause problems, but that’s not the case. When it comes to maintaining healthy hair and reducing stress, Ayurveda recommends massaging high-quality hair oil into the scalp before bed.

The commercially available hair oils and conditioners are not greasy. These hair oils are less oily and less sticky than others because they include solely MINERAL OIL. It’s incredible that we require oil for application, but that oil shouldn’t actually be oily.

Remember to rein in your Pitta Dosha.

As was said before, the Dosha connected with hair and skin is Pitta. So, when Pitta Dosha becomes imbalanced, it leads to hair issues like premature greying or hair loss. You need to keep your Pitta in check if you want your hair to keep its natural health and beauty. Greying and hair loss are common in persons with a pure Pitta body type, therefore it’s important to know your Dosha before you “stress” about your hair. Keeping Pitta under control requires diligent attention to the liver. There are many herbs that are said to improve hair quality, including Yashtimadhu, Bhringraj, Bahrea, Brahmi, Jatamansi, etc. Still, we ask that if your Pitta Dosha is imbalanced, you make an appointment with one of our doctors to discuss your symptoms. We’re here to help you achieve total wellness, from the inside out.
