About Hair Loss (Alopecia)
Hair is made up of a protein called keratin that is produced in hair follicles in outer layer of skin. Hair grows everywhere on the skin of humans except palms of both hands and soles of feet.
The average adult head has almost 1000,000 to 150,000 hairs and can lose up to 100 daily. It's very common and natural too.
The situation of baldness is termed as Alopecia. It is characterized by loss of hair partially or completely from the body.
The Different Types of Alopecia are as Follows:
- Alopecia totalis
- Alopecia areata
- Alopecia universalis
It is caused by genes from both parent and it is fuelled by the male hormone testosterone. In female pattern baldness the hair loss is different; it thins throughout the top of the scalp and leaving the hair in front intact.
Many men lose the hair on top of their head, which eventually leaves a horseshoe shaped ring of hair around the sides. This type of hair loss is called male pattern baldness.
Is Stress Responsible for Hair Loss?
Due to modern life style, things have been changes a lot. People are occupied all the time and they do not get time for themselves. Every time they are just in front of screens, mobiles, computers and eating just readymade food.
Yes, it would not be wrong to say that stress and anxiety are great contributors here. Extreme emotional tension for a long time may cause hair loss.
Ayurveda states that the loss of hair is basically dependent on the type of the body structure and tri dosha balance. Also, lack of proper circulation of blood in the scalp is yet another important factor for baldness. Improper diet, unhygienic lifestyle, exposure to certain drugs, radiations and therapies are some of the basic contributory factors of Baldness. Also, the male hormone, dihydrotesterone deteriorates the hair follicles, which leads to the thinning of hair and eventually, leads to loss of hair and baldness. Too much oiliness of the scalp and excessive stress also result in baldness. Another important cause of hair fall is heredity.
