Yoga and Home remedies for “Hair Fall”

Loss of hair at very tender age has become a problem for everyone these days. It’s normal to lose between 50 and 100 hair a day. With about 100,000 hairs on your head, that small loss isn’t noticeable. New hair normally replaces the lost hair, but this doesn’t always happen. Hair loss can develop gradually over years. Hair loss can be permanent or temporary.

Many times Hair fall happen with the sudden changes of weather and sometimes it’s just with the age. People tend to lose Hair after the age of 50 and the growth of new hair becomes slower.

Causes of Hair fall

  • Improper food and deficiency of Vitamin B and natural salts or Iodine etc.

  • Mental tension, shock, and other prolonged illnesses like Typhoid, Syphilis, Cold, Running nose, Sinus, Anemia, Cancer etc.

  • Not keeping the scalp clean, using lots of chemicals containing shampoo or products on your scalp.

Home Remedies to control hair fall

Remove all the above causes and make efforts to improve your health generally. It will not be taking more than an hour in a week and in no time you can see the better results. Honestly, Who doesn’t wish to have perfectly healthy hair?

Balanced Diet

Food should be balanced and nutritious. Always add seasonal fruits in your plate. Cabbage, Pineapple, and Amla juice every next morning for two weeks will work as a magic under your scalp.

Raw green vegetables, Salads, sprouted cereals can be consumed in sufficient quantity. Unpolished rice should be taken and lastly but my favorite Spinach and carrot juice is the best for the health of your hair.

Good Hygiene

Always keep your scalp dry but once in a week oil massage your hair with a good natural oil like Coconut oil, Mustard seed oil, Olive oil etc.

Massage your scalp daily with your fingertips for five minutes. Wash your hair twice a week. Women do not tie your hair in a tight bun or a ponytail all the time.

Brush your hair once a day as it will help to increase the blood circulation in your scalp.
