How to Get Rid of Female Hair Loss Naturally at Home
Are you losing hair by the handfuls every day? If so, you would have most probably tried out a good number of over-the-counter medications and applications and are still not satisfied with the results of any of them.
While loss of a few hairs every day should be taken in your stride, it is quite stressful, especially for a lady, to see bunches of hair falling off daily without being able to do anything about it. Do not worry – worrying about this will in itself cause a few more hairs to fall. Keep calm, because it is very much possible to arrest hair fall, however severe, with the help of Natural Therapy. Instead of applying harsh chemicals on your hair, or taking dangerous drugs, under natural therapy you will be using only natural substances which are readily available.
It is normal to have a few strands of hair falling on a daily basis. It is not generally a cause for concern, since these strands are regularly replaced naturally. A new hair grows out from the same hair follicle which is located below the surface of the scalp. However, if you find more than 50-60 hairs falling off every day, and the steps you have taken are not helpful in containing this trend, then it becomes a cause for concern – there could even be some underlying medical cause for this to happen. In some cases, with the onset of menopause, the hair tends to thin at the centre of the scalp and the condition goes by the name of female pattern balding. In some other cases the hair comes off leaving distinct bald patches, the condition being known as alopecia areata. Fortunately for women, the severity of hair loss is never as bad as for men, though women tend to suffer more from this condition than men.
Hair loss among females is a very common occurrence. You can lose a lot of hair by simply having a tight hairstyle or brushing or perming it too much, or using harsh dyes, blow dryers, etc. Hormonal changes occurring after pregnancy, or after menopause can also cause severe hair loss. An excess of male hormones among women is a known reason for this condition. Fungal or bacterial infection of the scalp, tumours, hypothyroidism, nutritional deficiencies, and certain medications and processes such as chemotherapy are all causes of hair loss in women. Heredity is another factor responsible for the type of hair one has.
In the home treatment of hair loss in women, as in any other condition, it is useful to know the exact cause. It then becomes possible to work in the right direction with the treatment, and results can be expected faster than when a generalized treatment is given. If the reason is a medical condition, rectification of that condition usually sees a slowdown in the rate of hair loss.
In other cases, diet and nutrition play a huge role in giving you a beautiful crop of hair. A high protein, low carbohydrate diet with the right kind of fats is what is normally recommended for lustrous long hair. A good amount of omega 3s from fish, walnuts and seeds along with legumes, poultry, eggs, and green leafy vegetables will give you the necessary minerals and vitamins as well. While on the subject of vitamins, those of the B group are very important and should never be overlooked. Among them, biotin and cobalamine (B7 and B12) are most essential for healthy hair. Good sources are meat, eggs, fish and liver.
For a woman suffering from hair loss, it is useful to consume green tea, which works by reducing the number of male hormones in the system. It is known that if these are in excess, hair fall can result.
Zinc, silica and copper are the minerals vital for proper hair growth. Supplements can be used but these have to be taken in the correct proportions so as to have the desired effect.
Keeping the hair clean and free of infection, treating it gently at all times, and giving it the right nourishment are all important factors in having good hair and preventing its loss. For more details on the subject, do get in touch with a good Natural Therapist.
