Hey guyz!

Hairfall is the biggest issue for everyone irrespective of men,women,child or old people.Not everyone face the issue in same amount.Some people may experience severe ,wheras others may experience normal hairfall.So here I am talking about hairfall causes,remedies tips,do's and dont's.I hope this will help you all.So let's get into the topic:)

Worried about hectic hairfall?No worries,by proper care and diet we can control and stop this hairfall :) For that you may need to know about the typical hairgrowth cycle.

Hairgrowth cycle


This is basically the hair growth phase.During this phase our hair will grow and it lasts upto 2-7 years.


During this phase the hair follicle shrinks,so this is also known as regression phase.It basically lasts to 10 days


Old hair is resting during this phase and new hair grows.It lasts for almost 3 months.


This is the last stage and the hair falls out,the new hair grows from the same follicle:)

So,hairfall is obviously normal!We will lose 100-150 strands of hair on an everyday basis!Quite interesting right?So now you maybe thinking that then when does it becomes abnormal!!!
The answer is simple,when we lose more than 150 strands of hair per day then you have extreme hairfall.Well then you have to count the number of hair you lose a day!??
No!:)Here are some signs to figure out;

Signs of extreme hairfall

1.Thinning of hair
2.Appearance of bald spots

For proper haircare as well as healthcare one need to include more vegetables and fruits in their diet.Especially when you are experiencing excess hairfall one of the reasons might be nutritional deficiency.Simply analyse the situation of pregnant ladies,they experience this due to iron,plant,white,fruit,sweet,flower
