Hair grows everywhere on the human skin except on the palms of our hands and the soles of our feet, but many hairs are so fine they're virtually invisible. Hair is made up of a protein called keratin that is produced in hair follicles in the outer layer of skin. As follicles produce new hair cells, old cells are being pushed out through the surface of the skin at the rate of about six inches a year.
The hair you can see is actually a string of dead keratin cells. The average adult head has about 100,000 to 150,000 hairs and loses up to 100 of them a day, finding a few stray hairs on your hairbrush is not necessarily cause for alarm. Hair fall is a common concern witnessed by most men and women at some point in their lives. Every day we lose around 50-100 strands of hair approximately, but then the same is replaced by new ones.
A lot of factors trigger hair fall, such as unhealthy lifestyle, stress, pollution, improper diet. Your hair goes through three distinct phases of growth:
These stages occur simultaneously and it is the characteristic of each phase that determines the length of the hair.
The normal cycle of hair growth lasts for 2 to 6 years. Each hair grows approximately 1 centimetre per month during the growth phase. About 90 percent of the hair on our scalp is growing at any one time and about 10 percent of the hair on our scalp, at any one time, is in a resting phase. Around the 5th year the hairs fall out and are replaced in a span of 6 months.
It is normal to shed some hair each day as part of this cycle. The average scalp contains about 1,00,000 hairs. On an average a person loses about 100 hair per day. However, some people may experience excessive (more than normal) hair loss. Hair loss of this type can affect men, women and children.
Cause of Hairfall
Hair Fall and Thinning could be caused due to several reasons such as lack of vitamins, minerals or iron in the body, age, pollution, heredity, stress, lack of sleep, hormonal imbalance and illness. Women start noticing hair fall and thinning between ages 25 to 30, whereas in case of men it can be seen between ages 15 to 25.
Balding is a natural phenomenon. Men and women undergo thinning of hair and loss of hair as they age. This is mainly related to ageing, hereditary factors and testosterone. About 25% of the men start balding by the time they are 30 years old.
Many people suffer from hair loss due to various factors like:
