Today, hair fall problems have increased globally. According to a study by the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research, 60% of people worldwide deal with hair fall problems. However, losing 50 to 100 strands of hair in a day is a part of your hair growth cycle. 

Your hair growth cycle has three stages that include the anagen phase, where your hair grows by 85%; the catagen phase, where your hair separates itself from the hair follicles and the telogen phase, where the separated strands of hair rest in the scalp. 

What happens if your hair stops growing during the anagen phase? It can result in excessive hair loss. Here are the common causes of hair loss:

  • Hair loss due to heredity: It is medically known as androgenic alopecia. It is a sudden loss of hair in patches on the scalp due to a family history of this condition. 
  • Alopecia areata: In this condition, your immune system attacks your hair follicles and causes hair loss. It affects different parts of your body like the scalp, nose, eyebrows, and eyelashes.
  • Cancer treatment: With cancer treatment, radiation or chemotherapy is the treatment used; it can weaken the hair follicles and cause hair loss.
  • Stress: Stress is another major contributor to your hair fall problems. When your body undergoes stress due to childbirth, surgery, or illness, it can lead to an increase in hair fall.
  • Haircare: Tight ponytails and the incorrect use of hair care products can cause hair fall problems. Tight ponytails can pull the hair strands and weaken them from the roots, causing hair fall. On the other hand, using hair care products that may not suit your scalp can also increase the risk of hair loss.
  • Medications: Some medications for acne, anti-fungal medicines, cholesterol control drugs, blood pressure medicines, and drugs for weight loss; can cause side effects that may lead to hair fall problems. 
  • Scalp psoriasis: It is a disorder that may lead to raised and scaly patches on the scalp, causing hair loss. 


Home remedies for hair fall

Here are some natural remedies you can choose to treat your hair fall problems better:

  • Scalp massage: When you massage the scalp, it stimulates the follicles to improve hair thickness and promote hair growth. 
  • Aloe Vera: The use of aloe vera can soothe and condition your hair to reduce hair fall. It can also help unblock oil-clogged hair follicles. You can apply pure aloe vera gel to your scalp and hair twice a week to help treat hair loss.
  • Coconut oil: This can help reduce protein loss in your scalp and help with hair growth. Apply coconut oil before or after hair wash, or leave it overnight to improve scalp health and promote hair growth.

Adding a few drops of rosemary oil to your shampoo or conditioner can also help to reduce hair loss effectively. Geranium oil also helps boost blood circulation to promote hair growth.
