Are you experiencing more hair fall than you think is normal? Consider using a regrowth serum, intended to restore hair growth.
Though men suffer most from hair loss according to doctors at WebMD, women in their fifties and sixties suffer from hair fall. There are many potential causes of hair loss and it often takes time to find the cause for each particular case since it may not always be immediately obvious.
How hair fall happens
Hair growth is controlled by a cycle. When this cycle is interrupted or disturbed, hair fall may result. Medication, illness, infection and chemicals are some potential disruptors. At any given time in the hair’s growth cycle, the majority of the hair on the head--approximately 90%--is in the growth stage. Normal shedding can number as little as 50 to 150 strands per day. When shedding becomes excessive, the signs of hair fall become more noticeable: your part seems wider and your ponytail is thinner as a result. You may also notice that your scalp is more visible than it previously was in the past, which is another sign of female androgenetic alopecia, more commonly known as female pattern hair loss.
Common conditions including anemia, pregnancy, stress, psoriasis, thyroid disorders, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and seborrheic dermatitis can cause hair fall. There is also a link between menopause and hair loss. Too much vitamin A or rapid and dramatic weight loss may also result in hair loss. Hair loss may also be hereditary, but combatting hair loss, no matter the cause, will always involve ensuring that your diet is well balanced and contains all the necessary vitamins, minerals and protein required to grow healthy hair.
How to naturally prevent hair fall
In addition to the foundation of a healthy diet, it is important to drink plenty of water and remain active. Physical activity and exercise increases blood flow, which improves circulation. Scalp massages are also great for helping to regrow hair, especially when combined with beneficial products, including natural carrier and essential oils and hair regrowth serums.
Do you need a hair serum?
Some hair serums can be quite expensive due to the potency of their ingredients. Because only small amounts are needed for each application, this type of product tends to last a long time, providing value for your money. Furthermore, since our appearance is so important to us and hair is such a huge part of our appearance, the cost of most serums is a small price to pay if hair restoration is important to our overall self-confidence.
