Polka Café logo Polka Café 01/03/2017 Glory Mathew

It's true that hair loss is more evident among men, i.e., male pattern baldness; but it's also true that hair loss is prevalent among women too! Some might go through the regular hair fall that happens during a shower or while combing hair; but for some, it goes to a whole new level. There are multiple causes for hair loss, some that are extremely common and some that are synonymous with a person's lifestyle. Here are a few reasons why a person might face major hair loss! Take a look. 

Extreme styling

While most of us love to have a new look every now and then and indulge in straightening, perming, colouring or curling, these methods tend to have a major impact on our hair! The heat and chemicals involved in these methods tend to make our hair brittle and weak which eventually leads to our hair follicles getting extremely weak and fall out! If you must indulge in these methods, make sure you take advice from your stylist on how to take care of your hair.Give a missed call on 08030636042 for advise on homeopathy treatments.: Extreme styling © Polkacafe Extreme styling

Physical and emotional stress

Any kind of physical stress can cause temporary hair loss. This can trigger a type of hair loss called Telogen Effluvium. Hair has a programmed life cycle - a growth phase, rest phase and shedding phase. When you go through extreme stress, it can shock the hair cycle, pushing more hair into the shedding phase. Some of the homeopathic routes to deal with stress include medications such as Argentum Nitricum and Tarentula.Give a missed call on 08030636042 for homeopathic advice.: Physical and emotional stress © Polkacafe Physical and emotional stress

Unhealthy scalp

An unhealthy scalp can cause inflammation that makes it difficult for hair to grow. Skin conditions that lead to hair loss include seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff), psoriasis, and fungal infections such as ringworm. It's extremely important to stay hygienic and wash your hair regularly with products that do not contain too many chemicals. Homeopathy for unhealthy scalp, especially dandruff, can include zinc pyrithione and tar-based shampoos. Give a missed call on 08030636042 for homeopathic advice. © Polkacafe Unhealthy scalp

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

One in five women in India have PCOS! Now that's alarming. PCOS occurs due to hormonal imbalance in which the ovaries tend to produce more male hormones than necessary. This in turn tends to affect your hair growth and leads to major hair fall. Do visit your gynecologist and find medications and treatments to prevent further hair loss. Thuja occidentalis is one of the most common homeopathic treatments for PCOS.

Lack of protein

If you don't get enough protein in your diet, your body may ration protein by shutting down hair growth, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. There are multiple ways to add protein to your diet, even if you are a vegetarian. Do consult your doctor and make a meal plan on how to go about it. The best homeopathic treatment for lack of protein would be to take protein-rich medications, as prescribed by your doctor.

Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism is the medical term for having an underactive thyroid gland. When your body produces too little thyroid hormone, the hormone responsible for metabolism, heart rate, and mood, you are said to have hypothyroidism. Thyroid hormone is responsible for everything from your basal metabolic rate - the rate at which your body uses oxygen and energy to function - to the growth of your hair, skin, and nails. If there is lesser than normal amount produced in your body, it can lead to hair loss. Calcarea carb, sepia and nux vomica are some of the most common homeopathic supplements for hypothyroidism.

Traction alopecia

Traction alopecia in simple language means tugging too hard at your hair. This happens mainly because of the pull on hair. This may be caused by certain hair styles that pull at the roots - tight braids and buns, or because the hair gets pulled by the wrong use of clips, tight rubber bands, or hair bands.Give a missed call on 08030636042 for homeopathic advice. © Polkacafe Traction alopecia
