Hair loss, also called Alopecia is a common concern nowadays among men and women. According to an estimate, humans have around 1,00,000 to 1,50,000 strands of hair and it is normal to lose about 50-100 strands every day. New hair generally replaces old hair. However, sometimes you begin to lose more hair than normal. Several factors could lead to this hair loss
a. Physiological Changes
Hair loss may not necessarily be due to some internal disease or due to a poor diet. Many men and women notice their hair thinning or hair fall as they approach their 30s or 40s. Hormonal changes that occur during puberty, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and menopause may lead to hair loss. Hair loss is also common among women after having a child. This is mainly due to falling in the oestrogen levels. Check out our best hair Spa treatment at the Riverday Salon & spa in Dubai.
Men with a family history of baldness also suffer from hair loss. Called androgenic alopecia, this pattern of baldness can begin as early as in the teenage years but mostly is seen in men above 50 years.
Physical or emotional stress has an impact on the hair follicles leading to hair loss. Prolonged periods of emotional stress can cause hormonal imbalances causing your hair follicles to go into the resting phase eventually leading to hair fall. Our haircare treatment in Riverday salon & Spa in Sharjah can improve hair growth and give you gorgeous hair.
d. Radiation Therapy and Medication
Hair loss is one of the most common side effects during cancer treatment. Cancer drugs may cause hair thinning or partial or complete hair loss. Radiation therapy also leads to hair loss on that part of the body which is being treated.
Also, antidepressants, weight loss drugs, antibiotics, and medications for lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, treating acne are known to cause hair loss.
e. Hair Care Products
Haircare products like shampoos and conditioners contain harmful chemicals and sulfates, sodium chloride causing the hair to dry, break, and eventually fall. Hence, one should choose anti-hair fall shampoo and conditioner. Enjoy the best hair care treatment at the Riverday Salon & spa massage in Dubai for shiny, black hair.
f. Excess Hairstyling
Hairstyles that pull the hair and create tension can lead to hair loss. Hair weaving and applying hair extensions can damage the scalp and lead to hair loss. Vigorous combing and hair treatments like perming, bleaching, straightening can lead to hair breakage and hair loss.
g. Vitamin Deficiencies
Nutritional deficiencies can also lead to hair loss. Deficiency in vitamin A, E, D, and Vitamin B can lead to hair loss. A deficiency in minerals iron and zinc also leads to hair loss. The hair is a mixture of proteins, amino acids, and peptides. A balanced diet is necessary to nourish the hair and maintain its health.
An infection that causes high fever or a fungal infection or bacterial infections like syphilis can also lead to balding or thinning of the hair. However, treating the underlying infection can help in restoring hair growth.
Exposure to air pollutants like dust and fuel particles can cause the hair to become dry, frizzy and weak, and fall. Greying of hair and premature hair loss has also been linked to pollution.
j. Lifestyle Habits
Though the health of your hair is influenced by genetic factors, your daily lifestyle habits also have a great bearing on it. Smoking, inadequate sleep, alcohol and drug intake can damage the hair leading to hair loss.
