5 Home Remedies for Hair Fall and Hair Growth
06 Oct 2015
Heredity, stress, hormonal imbalance, pregnancy, ageing, nutrient deficiency, medication, excessive use of styling products and tools – there are many reasons behind hair fall
. But don’t worry, there are many home remedies to control hair fall too.
The first step in understanding how to control hair fall and finding out which hair care tip actually works for you is to actually understand your hair. Hair is made up of a protein called keratin that is produced in hair follicles in the outer layer of skin. As follicles grow new hair cells, old cells are pushed out through the surface of the skin. The hair on our head is actually a string of dead keratin cells. On an average, an adult head has about one lakh strands of hair out of which around 100 are lost every day. If you look at the percentage of loss, it’s not too much; hence finding a few stray hairs on your comb is not necessarily alarming because about 90% of the hair on our scalp is actually growing! But to fret about a few strands in your comb is very normal. So let’s look at a few simple solutions on how to control hair fall.
