Hair Loss Causes and prevention defined


As per the research findings
Lack of sleep and exercise were common factors among patients below 30 years, say trichologists, who also conclude that patients with a strong family history of baldness experienced premature baldness as early as 18 years of age. Blood samples collected from patients were analyzed to get to the root cause of premature balding and acute hair loss. Researchers have zeroed in on some of the reasons:

* Poor GI (glycemic index) - sub-normal functioning of intestines in more than 50% patients, which is a direct result of water contamination.

* Poor liver, as revealed by a liver function test.

* More than required levels of zinc in the blood which could be attributed to high levels of zinc in groundwater or use of galvanized vessels in cooking and hormonal imbalance.

Higher ZINC levels in blood  and intake of water with higher content of metals is another reason for the same.

Do's and Dont's

1. Exercise and hair fall

One of the main reasons for hair fall is stress. Stress produces a hormone called cortisone which causes hair follicles to stop growing and results in thinning of hair. Exercise reduces cortisone levels in the body by increasing blood circulation throughout the body.

Exercise increases a hormone called serotonin, which decreases cortisone level and decreases hair fall.

An increase in blood cholesterol and blood sugar has been documented to increase the dihydrosterone hormone sensitivity of hair follicles, which cause androgenetic or male pattern baldness. Exercise reduces blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels and decreases hair fall.

2.Excessive oil in scalp

Hair follicles contain sebaceous glands which secrete sebum (an oily substance) which keeps the scalp naturally oily. On application of excessive oil, the scalp becomes a nidus for secondary fungal and bacterial infection causing hair fall. Oiling should be restricted to half-an-hour massage in the morning, followed by a wash with a mild shampoo.

3. Seven hours of uninterrupted sleep every day is a must for all age groups.
