To keep your hair healthy and to stop breaking, use homemade hair masks prepared from fruits, beets, onions, green tea, and neem leaves

Hair is your crowning glory that adds to your personality and style. Because of the regular growth cycle, it is normal to lose around 100 hairs a day, but excessive hair loss can make a person feel physically and socially less attractive, less virile, and less likeable leading to low self-confidence.

Hair thinning has a very negative impact on the psychological well-being of an individual.

If you too are facing excessive hair loss without any apparent reason, then you can try a few measures to stop hair loss or promote hair growth. But before taking any steps, you should know what is causing your hair loss.

What causes hair loss?

The most common genetic factor in hair loss is ageing, which makes it more prevalent in both men and women. Telogen effluvium is the second most common reason for this. More of your hair entering the rest cycle, when it sheds, causes this problem.

Telogen effluvium can be caused by:
Stress
Pregnancy
Medication side effects
Other underlying health conditions

Other causes of hair loss are:

Thyroid disease
Poor Diet
Stress
Ageing
Other hormonal conditions

However, you should consult a dermatologist or your primary care physician for a diagnosis if your hair loss results in bald areas, patchiness, or large clumps of hair falling out.

Symptoms of Hair Loss

Thinning of hair on the top of the head
Receding Hairline
Spotting of Bald Patches
Broken Hair

How to prevent hair loss and improve hair growth?

Avoid hairstyles that pull on the hair.
Do not chemically treat or bleach your hair.
Avoid high-heat hair styling tools.
Use a gentle shampoo that is suitable for your hair.
Use a gentle brush (comb) made of natural materials.
Include more Protein in your Diet
Regular oil massage
Drink lots of water and stay hydrated
Don’t rub your Hair
Keep your scalp sweat-free
Use Homemade Hair Masks: To keep your hair healthy and to stop breaking, use homemade hair masks prepared from fruits, beets, onions, green tea, and neem leaves.
If you want to prevent sun damage to your hair, make sure to cover it when you go outside with a hat, a scarf or an umbrella.
