Causes of Hair LossHair is nourished by the nutrient plasma, which is produced by the metabolic processing of the food we consume. The healthy nutrient plasma is responsible for the nourishment of the hair. According to Ayurveda, excess of pitta dosha (heat) in the body is the chief cause of hair problems. There are various other reasons for hair loss as mentioned below: Hormonal imbalance in men and women is an important cause of hair loss. In men, a high concentration of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in hair follicles causes hair fall. In women, hormonal imbalances both during pregnancy and after delivery cause hair fall. High amount of sebum in the scalp clogs the pores of the scalp and prevents nutrients from reaching the hair follicle, resulting in hair loss. Inadequate nutrition or unhealthy diet also causes hair fall. Stress, worry, lack of sleep, and anxiety too cause hair fall. Long-standing diseases like typhoid, viral infections, anaemia, surgery, etc. cause general debility which leads to hair fall. Some medicines like birth-control pills, anti-depressants, etc., including those used for gout, during chemotherapy against cancer, etc. cause hair fall. Diseases like lupus and diabetes also cause hair fall. Tying hair tightly pulls the hair from the follicles and cause traction alopecia. Heredity is also responsible for hair fall. Dandruff or fungal infection of scalp causes hair fall. Accumulation of dirt on scalp causes blocking of pores and weakens hair roots. This leads to hair fall.Hair Loss RemediesHair loss, in general, can be stopped or reversed at home by taking some simple steps. However, in case of chronic alopecia, expert guidance is required which has been described in the ‘Treatment’ section of this article. The first step is to locate the root cause in your diet or lifestyle that is causing the pitta dosha. Once you locate it, try to give up or at least reduce the diet, habit or activity responsible for increasing pitta. Always use a natural shampoo or soap (without too many chemicals) to clean the hair. Oiling and massaging of the scalp is highly beneficial in preventing hair loss. Use coconut oil or mustard oil at least three times in a week. Certain medicated oils like Mahabhringraj oil, Amla oil, and Arnica oil are also very useful. Ensure regular bowel movement everyday. In case of constipation, a mild natural laxative may be taken. One teaspoonful of Triphala powder can be taken at bedtime with warm water. Rub your scalp vigourously after washing the hair. It increases the blood circulation and activates the sebaceous glands. A paste of licorice made by grinding it in milk can be applied in the bald patches. It induces hair growth. A paste of the seeds of lemon and black pepper may also be applied on the bald patches. Consume raw vegetables, fresh fruits, salads, and green leafy vegetables regularly. Use relaxing techniques such as yoga, pranayama, etc. to overcome stress, anxiety and sleeplessness. Avoid hairstyles which pull the hair and consequently damage it.
