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

What is PH balance shampoo?

In advertisements popular shampoo brands use the term PH balanced shampoo so what is the meaning of pH balanced shampoo?

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.
At this pH, the hair is the strongest
If a solution, which is either acidic or alkaline, is applied to hair, it will become weaker. Any chemical with a pH of more than 10, or less than 0 will severely damage hair.

There are many ways to stop hair loss, including hair treatments and products. However, if budget-friendly and easy natural, homemade solutions give you better results that too within short time, then that is of course the best option! Being natural, they do not carry the harmful effects of chemical products. But first you must see a doctor to see if there is any internal medical problem that is causing your hair loss.

Try out the following homemade remedies for hair loss:

Aloe Vera, jojoba, henna, capsicum and dong quai are natural remedies to prevent hair loss and promote silly shiny hair. They can be used with wheat germ oil and other hair treatment products for thorough cleansing and moisturizing.
Soak fenugreek in a pot of water throughout the night. After massaging the hair with it keep your hair wrapped up for sometime. Wash off with a good shampoo.
Uncooked egg yolk can also be massaged onto the scalp, kept for 1 hour and then washed off. It provides fantastic nourishment for your hair.
You can also apply castor oil or olive oil for massaging the scalp to arrest hair fall.
Use baking soda and water to rinse off your hair after shampooing your hair. Juice of one lemon or cider vinegar can also be utilized for shine and bounce. Stale beer also does the trick.
