Why does hair fall happen?

The hair loss is a part of annual moulting of hair follicles (a period where they go into falling phase). If about 50 to 100 strands per day for 1 to 2 months in a year are falling, it is normal, but if there is excessive hair loss, it needs to be addressed. Below are the causes mentioned for you to know the reasons behind hairfall and how to get effective hair loss treatment.

  • Presence of excessive moisture in the scalp can increase risk of fungal infections, thereby weakening hair roots and leading to hair fall.
  • Generally first rain is considered to be the acid rain or if it has rained after a long gap, the chemicals suspended from the hair can damage your hair.
  • Using dryer for drying your wet hair can also be one of the major reasons for hair loss.
  • Persistent and concurrent medical issues like stomach upset, sore throat can reduce your intake of nutrients absorption that is required for healthy hair growth.
