Hair loss is known as Khalitya Paalitya in Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, People who have excess Pitta in their body are likely to lose their hair early in life, or have prematurely thin or gray hair.
Excess Pitta in the sebaceous gland, at the root of the hair, or folliculitis can lead to hair loss.
Human hair naturally grows in three phases:
Anagen - Anagen is the active or growing phase.
Catagen - Catagen is a short phase of the natural hair cycle during which hairs begin to break down.
Telogen - Telogen is the resting phase. The hairs that are shed daily are often in the resting or late phase in the hair cycle.
Normally, about 10% of the scalp hairs are in the resting or telogen phase at any time. These hairs are not growing and are getting prepared for cyclic shedding.
The human scalp has around 1, 00,000 – 1, 50,000 hair follicles.
Each follicle grows a hair continuously up to age 8.
The average scalp has up to 150,000 hairs.
Each follicle produces a single hair that grows at a rate of half an inch per month.
After growing for two to six years, hair rests awhile before falling out.
It is soon replaced with a new hair, and the cycle begins again.
At any given time, 85% of hair is growing, and the remainder is resting.
Most people lose anywhere from 50 to 100 strands of hair each day, according to the American Academy of Dermatology

pH is a scale from 0 to 14, which measures the acidity or alkalinity of a solution.
Solutions with a pH less than 7 are acidic,
pH more than 7 are alkaline.
Solutions with a pH of 7 are considered neutral.
The natural pH of hair is around 5.5.
