Hair Fall Down Fall, what do you think?

I think you are already imagining and relating this to you and this blog is meant for it. Hair fall has become the most impacting element of everyday life of all of us especially the present generation youth. With the modernization and developing culture, the hair fall rate also increased with the use of chemicals, hair colours, cosmetics and depending on how polluted areas we live in as well.

We all can see that hair fall took a leap from old ages to early adult ages, not only hair fall but also whitening of hair. Of all the external causes never ignore the facts like biological and psychological impacts towards it.

Biological impacts are obvious the hereditary and genetics and the addition of today's lifestyle fastens this process of hair fall. But how hair loss impacts mental health is today's question.

Going to those aspects the lifestyle of humans become too complicated to deal with. Research associated with psychological problems regarding hair fall is limited. The evidence and experience of hair loss is psychologically damaging and causing intense emotional suffering and often leads to personal, social and work-related problems. The more the hair loss the more the suffering. it changes the appearance of self and reduces self-confidence in society. Which will further lead to distress, anxiety and depression.

Women who experience high levels of stress are 11 times more likely to experience hair loss, compared to general population people with hair loss increases the occurrence of anxiety disorder, social phobia and even paranoid disorder.

In terms of depression, it could lead to a feeling of low mood, lack of interest and pleasure in activities, loss of energy and sleep deprivation. In terms of anxiety, it causes excessive worrying, difficulty controlling feelings, and feeling of heightened tension. With hair fall may increase palpitation and sweating. And social anxiety disorder may induce fear of humiliation and judged negativity and avoidance of social appearances.

Treatment for such anxiety, depression and suffering is behavioural therapy, group support and medication like anti-depressants. Research suggests that psychological treatment differs from person to person and general issue is to focus on coping with hair loss rather than a specific treatment strategy.

I know hair fall is most difficult to face in your 20s, the whole generation will agree that and feels that black is the real beauty with the whitening of hair. And some are melted into the thoughts of hair loss.

Precautionary measures to reduce hair loss:

  • A good sleep at night alters the growth of hair by promoting protein synthesis required.

  • Stress is equal to hair loss, so reducing stress will really help you get into control.

  • Your diet is always the key to health, maintain good levels of protein in food to increase hair growth

  • Pollution will destroy your hair as it is unprotected, so shower twice a week.

  • Avoid hot showers and use natural hair products which promote hair growth

  • Avoid cosmetics, hair colours, creams and hair gels.

  • Back to nature is the formula widely accepted and shows promising results.
