We all have experienced sleepless nights after spotting wispy strands and tangled hair in hairbrushes. Checking out internet for quick fixes and reading those long articles about how its all about your diet, products, lifestyle and pollution. We know, we know, there’s no one reason to blame.
While losing a hundred strands a day is normal but if the hair loss exceeds this number and there is no compensating hair growth, it may be time for you to focus your attention to fixing this problem known as hair thinning.
According to Ayurveda, hair loss or receding hairline is caused due to imbalance in doshas. “Your hair is a by-product of your bone tissue and it’s also linked to your gut and central nervous system. Consequently, weaknesses of the bone tissue, digestive system, or nervous system can lead to hair loss,” says Dr. Kriti Soni, Head of R&D, Kapiva.
There could be various reasons behind hair loss like poor nutrition, erratic and unhealthy lifestyle, environmental factors such as pollution and climate and stress, anxiety and tension, and inadequate sleep. Sometimes hair loss can also be caused by fairly simple things like hairstyles that pull your hair too tight.
