Hair is made up of a protein called keratin which is produced in hair follicles. Each follicle has its own life cycle that can be affected by age, disease and various other factors. However, as age advances, hair growth slows down. The average adult loses up to 100 hair strands every day. Ideally, hair must be replaced at the same rate at which it is lost. When that does not happen, it results in thinning of hair and baldness. Excessive hair loss over time can lead to partial or total baldness (medically known as Alopecia). Although hair loss is fairly common, it can be a tough condition to live with, especially when it changes how you look. Since hair has a lot to do with your appearance, losing it may cause you to have lower self-esteem.
Common causes of unnatural hair fall include family history, stress, severe illnesses like typhoid that induce very high fever, autoimmune diseases, damage from inappropriate hair styling, wearing tight braids or ponytails, or using curling irons or dyes, ageing, nutritional deficiencies and Thyroid imbalances. Bacterial or fungal skin infections, childbirth, burns, effects of certain strong drugs (such as those used for treating Cancer), excessive use of cosmetic hair products which may contain harmful chemicals, psychological trauma, radiation and environmental pollution are other prime reasons.
Scientifically proven treatments for hair fall are few. Thousands of unproven claims and products are available in the market, which are usually harmful and offer no definite evidence to be effective. However, effective solution has been achieved in controlling hair fall through a suitable combination of Fundamentals of Ayurveda, Unani and Therapeutic Yoga which is completely safe and natural. This treatment methodology of 'Naturoveda Health World' successfully eradicates the root cause of excessive hair fall effectively and without any adverse effect.
