The hair is made up of keratin, a protein that is created in the hair follicles in the skin`s outer layer. As the hair follicles produce new hair cells, the old ones are being pushed out.  This is considered as normal hair loss, happening at the rate of 6 inches annually. Therefore, finding a few stray hairs on the hairbrush is not alarming.

Each follicle has its own life cycle which can be affected by factors like age and disease. This cycle can be put into three phases: anagen (active hair growth),  catagen (transitional hair growth),  and telogen ( resting phase).

Hair loss can be a medical problem, a hygiene problem, a problem caused by some cosmetic products, or simply, a sign of aging. When it comes to the problem with cosmetic products,  note that many of them are packed with harmful chemicals.  The overuse of hair straightener is yet another contributing factor.

Types of Hair Loss

  • Involutional alopecia, a natural condition in which the hair loss is a result of aging
  • Androgenic alopecia, a genetic condition which equally affects both genders
  • Alopecia areata, a  patchy hair loss that begins all of a sudden
  • Alopecia universalis, a condition in which all the body hair falls out ( eyelashes, eyebrows, pubic hair)
  • Telogen effluvium, a temporary hair thinning caused by alternations in hair`s growth cycle

Whether its androgenic, involutional, or any other type, the problem becomes even more serious once you  start spending a little fortune on products full of chemicals, hoping that they will solve your problem. However, these products do more harm than good, and you end up even more frustrated.  Instead of doing this,  give natural remedies a try!
