A certain amount of hair loss is considered normal. But when you start to lose a large amount of hair and bald spots start appearing on your head, it’s a matter of concern.

Hair loss (Alopecia) could occur for many reasons. If we take general conditions, it’s evident that poor nutrition and modern lifestyles often have a negative impact on your health and hair loss. If you have deficient in your diet, this may lead to thinning and cutting of hair, eventually leading to hair fall and baldness. Just like your skin, your hair also needs nutrition from the inside out.

Health conditions such as anemia and thyroid can also lead to poor hair health. Postpartum hair loss is also common in women. This is quite normal because of the declining estrogen levels. Maintain a healthy diet and follow a proper hair care regimen for a complete hair loss solution.

Let us discuss some of the prominent causes of hair loss.

Causes

  • Heredity: The most common cause of hair loss is hereditary. Male-pattern or Female-pattern baldness is a common term for this hereditary condition. It occurs in regular patterns as you get older.
  • Health disorders: Hair loss can be caused by a number of medical conditions, including alopecia, telogen efflux, etc.
  • Hormonal Changes: Hormonal changes, including pregnancy, menopause, childbirth, and thyroid issues, induce hair loss.
  • Medications: Hair loss can be a side effect of certain medications, such as those used to treat cancer, heart disease, gout, and high blood pressure.
  • Radiation Therapy: Exposure to radiation therapy could affect hair growth. After the treatment, the hair may not grow back as quickly as it did before.
  • Stress is also considered as a major cause of hair loss. This may show up for several months following physical or mental trauma. This sort of hair loss is temporary and could be mitigated.
  • Inadequate Nutrition: When you eat a diet deficient in critical vitamins (A, B, C, D, E, and K), proteins, and minerals such as iron, magnesium, zinc, and so on, it affects your hair growth and may result in hair loss.
  • Exposure to harmful chemicals and hair treatments: Using chemical products on your hair for a long time could lead to hair loss at an alarming rate.

Symptoms

Hair loss may show up as:

  • Hair thinning
  • Circular/patchy hair loss
  • Sudden loss of hair
  • Loosening of hair
  • Full-body hair loss
  • Patches of scaling along the scalp

Ayurveda Treatment for  Hair Loss

Ayurveda follows a holistic approach to managing ailments of any kind. The primary stage of the therapy involves analyzing the patient’s body constitution and finding the root cause of the disease. Later, a customized therapy regimen is prescribed according to the individual’s current state and the progression of the disease.

Ayurveda treatment for Hair loss at Ayurclinic entirely focuses on the root cause and arrests the advancement of the disease. Apart from using ayurvedic oil for hair fall, you can also opt for Panchakarma therapies (Deep cellular cleansing therapies) under the guidance of our ayurvedic practitioner to improve your hair growth.

These Ayurveda therapies will cater to your specific health needs, strengthen existing hair strands, and stimulate hair regrowth.

At Ayurclinic, we offer various Panchakarma therapeutic procedures for hair loss / Alopecia like:

  • Shiro Abhyanga (Head Massage with Medicated Oils): is a form of massage that encourages hair growth by boosting blood circulation in the scalp, shoulders, and neck. Medicated oils are used to ease stress and discomfort in specific places by acting on the central nervous system.
  • Shirodhara (External De-stress Therapy): Shirodhara is a form of medicated hair oil treatment where warm oils are poured over your head and massaged to stimulate hair growth and also to release stress. With this method, hair roots are strengthened with certain medicated oils that improve blood circulation through massages thereby leading to hair re-growth.
  • Shirolepa (Thalapothichil): is a widely recommended Ayurvedic treatment involving herbal pastes of high medical value. In this procedure, the scalp will be completely covered in herbal pastes which will penetrate and nourish the brain and central nervous system, rejuvenating the individual from the inside. This technique is widely used to relieve tension, migraines, and sleep disorders, to increase memory power, and to treat all types of scalp diseases
  • Shirovasthi is a specialized treatment for hair loss. A special leakproof container (with sides but no base) is placed on the head and filled with warm medicated oil that penetrates the hair follicle. This process helps to stem hair loss and promote regrowth to a wide extent.
  • Kashayadhara: Kashayadhara is the application of medicated decoction over the forehead and body. It promotes total mental peace and is considered as the best Ayurvedic hair loss therapy mechanism
  • Nasyam: is a nasal treatment in which precise amounts of herbal extracts are delivered into the nostrils, which serve as a passage to the head. The nasal passage is purified using this procedure to eliminate allergies or blockages. This procedure alleviates headaches and Migraine as well, thereby contributing in hair growth

Diet and Lifestyle

A balanced diet rich in dosha-specific foods is essential for maintaining dosha balance. Any dosha or biological energy can be boosted or weakened by an improper diet. To activate Pitta, for example, eat hot, salty, spicy, and sour meals. You must avoid the same foods to soothe Pitta when treating hair loss.

Consume enough cucumbers, leafy vegetables, potatoes, pumpkin, peppermint, coriander, yogurt, sprouts, sesame seeds, and other nutritious foods in your diet to ensure good hair growth.

You should also limit your intake of coffee, fried foods, cool drinks, junk food, and baked goods.
