But if the hair falls extend from more than hundred strands then it’s not to be considered as a normal. Then you must be facing a problem of hair fall. So, what you need to do to stop hair fall and regrowth the hair? The solution is Ayurveda for your hair loss.
Unbalanced diet and excess intake of junk food is the most common reason for hair fall. Stress, anxiety and disturbed sleep also leads to hair fall. As per Ayurveda, all the above habits lead to Pitta dosha. That’s why, hair loss is caused because of Pitta Dosha. If your Pitta got disturbed, it leads to overheat the hair follicles which results into weak and brittle hair and slow hair growth.
Cause of Hair Fall:
- Poor intake of diet
- Irregular lifestyle- Late night sleep, excessive time on screen
- Stress, anxiety and inadequate rest
All these factors lead to excess toxin in the body.
As per the Ayurveda, texture of hair depends on Prakriti (balance/ imbalances in your constitution)
- If there is a prominent Vata Dosha has excessively dry, frizzy and brittle hair.
