Hair fall doesn’t just happen because of dandruff or ageing, 50-60% of women are continuously complaining about their hair loss issue but did we ever notice that there are way to many things we are doing in our daily lives and it’s leading to hair fall.
1. Regularly Wearing Tight Hairstyles
Wearing tight ponytails or buns over time can without a doubt cause trauma to our hair follicles and lead to hair fall slowly but eventually.
2.Going on a Juice Cleanse or Dramatic Weightloss
Going on a rigorous diet like a juice cleanse can lead to major hair fall. One might not experience it while on diet but the effects starts showing afterwards. It’s due to lack of variety of nutrients that were restricted in the diet, which enables body to lessen the supply of energy to hair.
3.Enduring Stress Over an Extended Period of Time
We are not talking about a busy week or a bad bay, but an even that might cause more long-term stress can cause major hair fall. Hair has a programmed life cycle: a growth phase, rest phase and shedding phase. “When you have a really stressful event, it can shock the hair cycle, (pushing) more hair into the shedding phase. Hair loss often becomes noticeable three-to-six months after the trauma.
4.Overusing Hot Tools
This is nothing new to us, we all are aware that whether it’s a curling iron, blow dryer, or a straightener, your hot tool is probably is too hot to handle for our delicate hair. If it’s heated for long and it’s burning the back of your hand, turn the heat down cause then you are not styling your hair but rather burning it! Chronic repeated use will eventually lead to breakage and hair fall.
5.Applying Chemical Treatment
Regular hair colouring or treatments that curl or relax the hair can lead to breakage, and it’s one of the more common cause of hair loss. Do not overuse the product, and not more frequently than the manufacturer suggests.
6.Taking Steamy Showers
Hot water dehydrates strands (just like skin), leading to dry, brittle hair that’s more prone to snap and fall out. Not only are you washing your hair’s protective oils down the drain, but the heat throws your scalp’s pores into overdrive to keep up with oil production, which can damage the root and lead to additional shedding.
7.Mishandling Wet Hair
Our strands are never more fragile and prone to breakage than when they’re saturated with H2O. Brushing or combing locks in the shower, then following with aggressive towel-drying, create the perfect storm for snapping it off.
8.Using Long Lasting Styling Products
If your hairspray or gel claim All-day Mega-hold, they’re actually making your locks harder to hold on to. These are usually high in alcohol, which makes hair dry and brittle. Once you comb or brush your hair, that residue causes the hair to break and fall out.Skip any products that make hair stiff or sticky. Instead, opt for softer-hold solutions like styling creams that keep hair’s moisture intact and don’t create friction when brushing.
