How to Control Hair Fall


On average, healthy men and women lose between 50 to 100 strands of hair on a daily basis. This is normal and to be expected. Excessive hair fall, however, can be a source of embarrassment and discomfort. One of the major causes of excessive hair fall is over-processing of hair, which results in damaged strands and weakened roots. Brushing with combs that pull too tightly on the hair may also lead to hair fall. Proper hair care is essential in alleviating and controlling hair fall.

      Wash hair three times a week with a hair-strengthening shampoo. If your hair is colored or permed, use shampoo specifically formulated for chemically treated hair. When you shampoo, use your fingers to gently massage your scalp in order to stimulate blood flow to the roots. Proper circulation strengthens the roots and greatly decreases hair fall.

      Condition hair after every wash to keep the strands soft and healthy. When hair becomes overly dry and brittle from styling processes, it is likely to break and fall out. Regular conditioning treatments keep strands pliable, thereby eliminating breakage and controlling hair fall.

      Apply a leave-in conditioner every day to keep hair hydrated between washes. Using a conditioner on a daily basis will protect hair from environmental factors, such as harsh ultraviolet rays and styling with hot tools like flat irons, both of which can lead to breakage and hair fall.

      Use a boar-bristle brush and wide-toothed comb to detangle and brush hair. These types of brushes and combs are more gentle on the hair without pulling too much on the strand. Thus, hair is less likely to fall out.

      Finally, pull hair back with a wide, cloth headband instead of using a rubber band, plastic hair clip or elastic. Elastics and clips can pull too tightly on the hair, weakening the root and causing hair to fall out prematurely.
