According to Ayurveda, hair fall happen when there is an imbalance in these three dosha levels - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, which form your natural Prakriti. Thus, to prevent hair loss, you need to work on balancing your Ayurvedic doshas.
In the Modern Era, hair and scalp problems include hair loss, infections, and disorders causing itching and scaling. Male pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss in men, with a receding hairline and baldness on the top of the head. It may be caused by many factors, including stress and/or strain, LLP-based (light liquid paraffin) hair oils, malnutrition and use of chemical dyes.
Some Of The Hair Problems Which People Face Are:
Allergies: Allergies resulting in rashes on the skin can appear on the scalp as quickly as anywhere else on the body. Identifying the cause is often difficult, as there are hundreds of known and many unknown allergens. Use a mild shampoo as often as necessary and try not to aggravate the condition by scratching.
Alopecia: Alopecia areata, Alopecia total, Traction Alopecia, and banded Alopecia are various kinds of hair loss. Alopecia areata is a loss of hair in patches and can develop into Alopecia total or complete baldness. Traction and banded Alopecia result from an intolerable strain being put on the hair — from being pulled back into a tight ponytail or being pulled as it is straightened — and usually occur around the hairline. If this pressure is removed, there is every chance the hair will regrow, but if the abuse continues, the hair loss may be permanent.
Anemia: Of the various varieties of anemia, those caused by poor diet, lack of iron, or vitamin deficiency (particularly vitamin B) will most affect the hair. However, once the condition is halted, treated, and the diet improves, hair will gradually return to health.
Bad Hair Odour: Foul hair odour usually occurs in conjunction with excessively oily hair conditions. It results from sweat and oil glands excess producing, sometimes, because of stress, exhaustion, and an improper diet rich in oily and fried foods. Once the diet is corrected and the stress alleviated, it will remove the odour of the hair.
Baldness: Baldness, or Alopecia total, comes when the hair follicles atrophy and cease to grow new hair. It commonly starts with a thinning of the hair, becoming more severe until only the sides and back of the head have hair left at all — and often, not even these areas are also covered. It is usually hereditary; it used to be thought peculiar to men, but nowadays, many women also suffer from it — reinforcing the theory that it is frequently caused by stress and strain and is sometimes the result of illness or drugs.
Dandruff: This term is used widely to describe any flaky skin and itching on the scalp. It is because of a dry scalp, and this can be so, but more often, it goes along with oily hair when the sebaceous glands are overproducing, and the follicles get clogged. Causes include lack of fresh air or proper air circulation, i.e., if you wear wigs constantly, or the hair is often covered in scarves or a hat; stress and emotional strain; and sudden changes in climate or diet. Therefore, the scalp should be kept immaculately clean by frequent washing.
Dermatitis: This inflammation of the skin or scalp is also known as eczema.
Dry Hair And Oily Hair: Dry hair appears dull and brittle and is often caused by over-bleaching, perming, or over-exposure to the sun, wind, salt, or chlorine-filled water. Whereas oily hair becomes greasy and lanks even a few hours after shampooing and cleansing, it is caused by over-production of oil sebaceous glands and can also produce a lousy hair odour.
Favus: This is a deep-rooted hair fungal infection and sometimes the result of untreated ringworm, affecting the scalp and leaving the scalp hairless. If you find this issue consult your doctors as soon as possible.
Grey Hair: Grey hair is a very common issue, where white hairs are mixed with the natural colour, giving a grey effect. If hair strands contain melanin (colour granules), they are 'coloured'; if they don't, they are 'white'. As the body ages, the hair bulbs fail to produce melanin in the hair shaft, and white hair results.
Hair Breakage: Hair usually breaks when it is dry and brittle, and this comes from abuse: over-processing through bleach, colour or permanent waves, or over-exposure to the elements. Hair that is breaking is very delicate and requires the gentlest treatment to restore their health; Such hair should be combed gently with a wide-toothed comb, shampooed with a richer formula than usual, and conditioned every time after washing them. Don't use blow-dry or heated rollers or other electric hair accessories until your hair has gained health and becomes healthy.
Hair Fall: The hair that has fallen has a tiny white bulb at one end. Fifty to a hundred hairs falling out every day is usual—hair loss over and above that needs treatment. The causes are unknown but involve contraceptive pills, chemotherapy, drugs like cortisone, things that interfere with hormones, and emotional disorders like anxiety, lack of sleep, or tension. Finding the reason will decide how permanent the hair loss will be — sometimes, the excessive fall can be stopped, and the hair will develop at the time.
Pityriasis: Pityriasis is a loose term used for a bran-like or scaly appearance of the skin. Pityriasis steroids and pityriasis capitis are alternative names for common dandruff. Pityriasis amiantacea is a more virulent form of dandruff, which gathers along the hair shaft and scalp.
Hair loss can appear in many different ways, depending on what's causing it. It can come on suddenly or gradually and affect just your scalp or your whole body. Some types of hair loss are temporary, and others are permanent. Signs and symptoms of hair loss may include:
