Hair Fall

Hair fall is one of the key problems which is associated with poor scalp health and poor hair care regimen. On an average up to 100 scalp hair per day may fall out. Normal hair growth depends on good blood supply to hair roots, scalp health, hair health and a healthy body. However, when a person begins to lose more than 100 strands per day, it is a clear sign of a hair fall problem. There are number of reasons which can be traced out for hair loss and its severity.

There are many causes of scalp hair loss, and they do differ in men and women. The Hair fall associated with age, hereditary and chronic disorders is difficult to control/ manage. However, lifestyle factors like stress, pollution, sleep, diet, personal hygiene etc., can hasten the hair fall. There are few important reasons for hair fall which include Dandruff, undernourishment of hair, use of harsh chemicals and ordinary hair oils & shampoos which cause hair damage or growth of dandruff.

Hair growth occurs in three phases: one, the anagen, or active growth phase; two, the catagen, or transition phase; and three, the telogen, or dormant, resting phase.

Anagen: This is also known as growth phase. In this phase, hair grows fast (0.8 to 1.2 cm/month). In healthy hair, this phase lasts for 2 – 7 years and 80 – 90% hair strands exist in this phase.

Catagen: This is also known as transition phase. This phase signal the end of the growth phase characterized shrinking of the hair follicle. This phase lags for 2-3 weeks.

Telogen: This is also known as dormant or resting stage. This phase exist till hair is forced to anagen phase. This comprises 10 – 20% hair strands.

Normally up to 100 scalp hair per day may fall out. A physiological balance between anagen: telogen phase ratio (9:1) should be maintained preferentially to be called as normal hair fall

Most hair care experts who deal with Hair fall and baldness related problems strongly recommend that the first step in controlling Hair fall is getting rid of dandruff as it is true that dandruff and Hair fall are interrelated. Malassezia Sp. a dandruff causing fungus resides in hair follicles. Malassezia Sp. needs the fatty acids secreted in sebum as food for the survival and growth. People with dandruff often sense itching and redness of scalp. This condition results in weaker hair roots, leading to hair fall and thinning. Hence, people who suffer from thinning hair or hair fall problems should switch to treat and prevent dandruff in order to prevent the hair loss.

Hair need continuous nourishment and proper care as under nourishment leads to dryness of scalp which causes the hair to become brittle and eventually causes hair fall. Proper care is also required while combing the hair as maximum hair fall is noticed at the time of combing as hair breakage happens often while combing.
