Homeopathy: Hair fall solution for all hair conditions
Hair loss, also known as alopecia or baldness, refers to excessive hair fall from the scalp that can be temporary or permanent. Hair loss can be a result of heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions or aging. People typically lose 50 to 100 strands of hair a day as a part of the hair growth cycle. The hair goes through 3 phases that are known as the Anagen phase, Catagen phase and Telogen phase. This hair growth cycle ensures we don’t lose patches of hair all at once. Hair loss occurs when new hair doesn't replace the hair strand that has fallen out during the Telogen phase. Excessive hair fall can become a cause for concern as it may even leave a bald spot.
Excessive hair fall can be determined by symptoms like:
- Excessive hair shedding (more hair seen on the floor, pillow or on your washroom drain)
- A receding hair line is seen when hair thinning occurs above the forehead in both men and women
- Overall thinning of the hair from the scalp
- Widening of partition often forming a ‘Christmas tree’ like pattern on the scalp and a thin pony tail in women (female pattern baldness)
- Partial baldness and M-shaped hair line in men (male baldness pattern)
- Hair loss from the back of the head or the crown area
- Alopecia areata resulting in hair loss in patches forming a bald spot
- Scarring alopecia or cicatricial alopecia (hair loss accompanied with scarring)
Hair loss is often a result of different causes like:
- Nutritional deficiency
- Medical conditions like thyroid disorders, diabetes and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
- Stress and anxiety
- Autoimmune disorders
- Scalp Psoriasis
- Excessive dryness or oiliness of the scalp
