Reading Time: 3 minutes

Shedding hair or a lot of hair is what almost all of us go through. Going into the shower and coming out every time with a little less hair has become normal, especially when it is monsoon. We need to learn that some shedding is totally normal and we on average lose 50-100 hair strands every day. But once, if you start losing more hair than that, it becomes alarming and you should take hair fall very seriously.

What can be the reason? How can we fix that? who should we go to?. If you want to know the reasons, this is the right article for you!

Why Do We Experience Hair Fall?

Hair fall whether, in monsoon or not, indicates many other health issues that we do not frequently know about or do not notice. Some of the main issues that hair fall indicates are listed here. If you are experiencing hair fall, you might want to focus on these factors.

1. It Is In Your Genes And You Have Inherited It

You would remember that your granddad, grandmother, or your aunt has very thin hair and you wonder what is the reason. The reason is that it is genetic, they might have inherited it from their parents or family members. So, if you are experiencing similar issues you might have inherited it from them. Hereditary hair loss is the most common cause of losing hair and affects millions of people.

Fix It Like This: It is recommended to see a dermatologist as soon as you start noticing gradual thinning, a receding hairline, or patches with no hair on them. A dermatologist is a person who can help you identify whether it is a hereditary hair loss or are there any other causes. Consequently, they’ll help you find the right treatment plan and procedures.

2. You Are Stressing Too Much

Taking too much stress not only upsets your appetite but does a lot more than we can imagine. Lost a loved one? facing adjustment issues? had an accident?. All of these can a whopping three-quarter of scalp hair to shed. There are chances that your hair might come out in handfuls and take a lot of time to develop or for you to notice as fair fall after trauma begins until weeks or months. The hair loss in that hair fall time can regain its fullness within about six to eight months.

What to do: The best way to take care of them is to engage you in calming activities i.e yoga, walk, practicing deep breathing, or meditation. If these tips aren’t helping you, see a dermatologist immediately.

3. Eating Enough Protein Or Not?

Another reason why we lose so much hair is that we aren’t consuming sufficient protein. Our hair growth depends a lot on the protein we consume as it holds on to all that little protein that we are eating. This definitely slows down our hair growth and our hair starts falling out.

What to do: Only eating protein is not enough, we have to incorporate foods rich in protein and also apply them directly to our hair as well.
The food which is rich in protein are:

  • Chicken
  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Beans

Find good remedies to make a mask out of these ingredients so your hair can directly enjoy all the nutrients we keep them away from.
