What Are the Causes of Hair Loss: Normally every person losses about 40-50 strands of hair every day. They are replaced by new hair. But when either the hair loss is not being replaced by new hair or when the hair loss is more than the new hair grown then it becomes a cause for great concern.  Following are the main causes for hair loss:

(i) Genetics Cause for Hair Loss: This is the foremost cause of hair loss. If your ancestors or close relatives have hair loss or thinning of hair in their lineage, you are likely to suffer from hair loss as well as a genetic cause.

(ii) Lack of Nutritious Diet leads to Hair Loss: Hair cells need proper nutrition. Deficiency of iron / folic acid and B vitamins is second major cause for hair loss.

1. Remove Causes of Hair Loss: Our first natural beauty tip is to bring about changes in your life style and eliminate the above causes of hair loss, as much is possible.

2. Regular Massage with Hair Oil: Massaging your scalp increases blood circulation in your scalp, stimulates hair follicles and in turn strengthens your hair roots. This also helps in to cure hair growth deterrents like fungal infections and dandruff. A bonus point is, it also helps in controlling your stress levels which is another reason for thinning of hair.

(i) You can use lukewarm coconut hair oil to massage your scalp. Alternatively, you can use olive oil. Dip your fingers in the lukewarm oil and rub onto your scalp and hair roots gently. You can massage your scalp before sleeping at night and keep it on overnight. Cover your pillow with a towel. Wash off your hair with a good quality shampoo in the morning. If you don’t like sleeping with oil on your head then you can massage your scalp during day time on weekends and let oil sit on your scalp for such time as much as you can and then wash off with a good quality shampoo.

(ii) If you don’t like to put oil onto your scalp, you can rub your scalp with your fingertips, without oil to increase blood circulation in your scalp and to stimulate hair follicles to control the hair loss.

3. Appropriate Nutritious Diet: To prevent early hair loss and thinning of hair, you need to consume a healthy balanced diet rich in iron, protein, calcium and vitamins B.

(i) Consumption of Protein rich foods help in the growth of plush hair. Foods rich in proteins are turkey & chicken breast, fish (tuna & salmon), lean beef, cheese, tofu, beans, eggs, yogurt, milk, buttermilk, soy milk, nuts and seeds (peanuts, almonds)

  1. hi ,im just 18 years old and im suffering from serious hair loss from 2 years ,and i have dandruff too ,so please suggest me the best and natural way to avoid this.

  2. We experienced heavy hair loss due to very iron rich well water. The water actually stained my hair and bathtub orange red.
    The hair felt dry and brittle and unmanageable. I would loose a lot just brushing.

    I used Revivogen and started using a bath cap and used city water for hair wash or used showers at the YMCA.

    After a few weeks I had a complete turn around. (Also don’t use this water for cooking like rice, spaghetti absorb the iron
    and it will give you serious helth problems.

    Zapping a well with Electricity will not solve your problem, just waste your money.

  3. Hey i have sever hair fall just after smoothing treatment, should i use egg mask ?
    Its being 5 months now for smoothing treatment

    • @ japneet:

      Along with the above remedies, you can use an egg mask. Here is the recipe for you:

      Break the egg and empty the contents in a glass bowl. Add in 2-3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and blend it properly. Apply this mask on the scalp and hair and leave it for 40 minutes. Shampoo hair with cold water as hot water causes formation of lumps and can cause a pungent odor. You can also mix eggs with yogurt / curd or a good conditioner. The yolk will penetrate through your scalp and reaches the follicles. It is very helpful in mending rough hair and stopping hair loss.

  7. @ Vaishnavi:

    Any stressful event e.g medical illness like typhoid, dengue, jaundice etc can lead to loss and thinnig of scalp hair.

    The treatment is that you take a healthy, wholesome, nutritious diet.

    In addition to that you may add an oral Biotin supplement once daily and an oral Iron supplement once daily.
    Minoxidil is a hair growth promoter. Topically you may use a minoxidil 2% solution, twice daily at scalp skin.
    These together would help in the recovery of your hair.

    But it’s recommended that you speak to a good dermatologist in your vicinity for confirming and taking this treatment.
