Hair loss or hair thinning is a problem faced by every single human being at an unexpected time in their life. With the advancement of social media in the world, every person wants to have a good-looking and attractive personality.

Thus it is said that if so many responsibilities lie with one part of our body it must be taken good care of. A few changes in our lifestyle and routine can do wonders if followed judiciously.

What if I told you that hair loss can be prevented and even spurt up hair at the comfort of your home? Yes, this is possible but requires a dedicated time routine which has to be followed regularly for seeing a change. So, let us understand this problem from its root and find its solution.

Why am I losing my hair so early?

At certain times of our life, we face hair loss or hair thinning and we get stressed and worried which doesn’t help but creates more problems. With age, hair starts to grow thinner and even lose its volume and become fragile but this is natural. What is the reason when hair starts to fall at a young age, say the early twenties, that creates an issue giving the young minds more to worry about?

There are many reasons for unexpected hair fall some are-

1. Hereditary or genetic- This is a natural condition seen in many generations of a family suffering from hair loss. Pattern baldness in both females and males is seen and then sudden hair loss takes place.

2.  Hormonal changes- Low levels of estrogen and progesterone which are the sex hormones can lead to hair becoming much thinner leading to hair fall. A decrease in these hormones can also increase the production of male hormones which are known as Androgens, they shrink the hair follicles resulting in hair thinning and loss of hair on the head.

3. Medical conditions- Many diseases leave us weak and have bad side effects on our body which pertain over the years if not taken seriously. Diseases like thyroid, typhoid, jaundice, and the major one to result in hair loss is alopecia areata which is an autoimmune disease that particularly attacks our hair follicles.

4. Medications- We take a lot of antibiotics to help us recover from a certain disease or condition but these antibiotics have both advantages and disadvantages which leave a mark on our body. These antibiotics have side effects which result in many problems and some of those include hair loss. Certain types of drugs do not suit many people and backfire the treatment by creating more problems in our bodies. Hence, to avoid such problems we should refer to a medical professional before taking such medications on our own.

5. Stress- Changing times have forced us to work from home and provide us with endless tasks to be completed in a timeline which has contributed to stress and tensions in our life. This stress is bad for our health and leaves different effects on our body and hair loss is one of them.

6. Hairstyles and Environmental conditions- Different hairstyles define different personalities of a person but certain types of hairstyles put pressure on our scalp, pulling out hair tightly can result in a condition known as traction alopecia.

The environment is degrading day by day, pollution in the air, infected drinking water, and change in lifestyles have impacted our health and certainly our hair. Thus, a good environment and a lifestyle are required to lead a healthy life.

How to prevent/Stop it- Natural remedies for hair loss
