Hair is made up of protein called keratin that is produced in Hair Follicles in the outer layer of skin. As follicles produce new hair cells, old cells are being pushed out through the surface of skin at the rate of 6 inches per year. The Hair you can see is string of Keratin cells. The average Adult head has about 1 lac-1.50 lac of hair and loses up to around 50-100 of them every day, Finding a few hair strings on hair brush is not necessary a cause of alarm. At any one time, about 90% of the hair on a person’s scalp is growing. Each follicle has its own cycle that can be influenced by age, scalp health and wide varieties of other factors. This life cycle is divided into 3 phases:
• Anagen — active hair growth that lasts between two to six years.
• Catagen — transitional hair growth that lasts two to three weeks.
• Telogen — resting phase that lasts about two to three months; at the end of the resting phase the hair is shed out and a new hair replaces it and the growing cycle starts again.
Understanding Signs & Symptoms of Hair Loss:
Signs of hair loss and hair loss conditions vary between men, women and children. However, people of any age or sex may notice more hair collecting in their hairbrush or in the shower drain or on pillow or bed sheet.
The signs of hair loss and hair conditions may include
• Thinning hair on the scalp
• A receding hairline
• A horseshoe-shaped pattern that leaves the crown of the head exposed
• General hair thinning, especially at the crown of the head
Reasons for Premature Hair Loss-
Poor Health of scalp leads to excess hair fall. Over the period, the gap between the hair growth and hair loss widens leading to a receding hair line. If the timely care of scalp is not taken, then the follicles become dormant permanently and results in permanent baldness. The dormant follicles thereafter are unable to grow hair, so timely care of falling hair is important. Following are the reasons of Premature Hair Fall:
• Lack of nutrients due to eating unhealthy food
• Poor Blood circulation
• Infection, dandruff and Allergy
• Stress, Pollution, lack of sleep
• Side effect of products used with chemical ingredients.
• Hormonal Changes (In case of females)
