Tips For Hair Falling...

Reasons for Hair Loss

Hair is formed in tiny pockets in the skull known as follicles. The upgrowth from follicle is called the papilla. Papilla with the help of a specific group of cells that turn amino acids into keratin, produces hair. Keratin is a type of protein that makes hair. Higher the rate of production of keratin, more will be the hair growth. The rate of production, in turn, depends on the vital nutrients supplied through the diet of a person. If vitamins and other nutrients are provided in sufficient amounts, hair grows at normal rate but if there is a deficiency of vitamins and nutrients then no protein is formed which, on the one hand, stops the growth of hair and on the other hand makes the hair weak leading to hair loss and baldness. Therefore, one of the major reasons of hair loss is deficiency of nutrients.
There are some other reasons for hair loss too.
• Lack of vitamin B6, folic acid, calcium etc
.• Stress
• Prolonged Illness
• Improper or irregular cleaning of hair
• Heredity
• Pollution; environmental hazards
• Application of chemicals on hair ( hair straightening, coloring, hair dyes etc).
• Poor blood circulation
Ayurvedic Dietary Tips for Healthy Hair

Ayurveda recommends a combination of wholesome, fresh natural foods as the best and most effective way of delivering balanced nutrients to your hair. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Dark leafy vegetables, beets, broccoli, carrots, radish, and herbs like mint and basil are excellent choices for wholesome supply of nutrients to your hair. Do add spices like cumin and turmeric to your vegetable curries as they are not only hair friendly but also help transport the nutrients from other foods you eat to the cells and tissues of the body.

Different types of berries, citrus fruits, melons and sweet grapes are considered hair healthy fruits. Similarly, eating soaked raisins promote hair growth. Also, vary the fruits and vegetables you eat.

Coconut is highly revered in ayurveda for its ability to nourish the hair and scalp. It balances the pitta dosha and thereby treats premature falling of hair and graying. Coconut consumed in all its forms is beneficial for health of the hair.

Ayurveda recommends milk, fresh cottage cheese and lassi (a drink made by blending fresh yogurt and water) for proper health of hair. Also, whole grains and legumes provide nourishment to your hair without putting muchpressure your digestive system. One can also combine grains, beans, vegetables, herbs & spices and prepare hair healthy nutrients rich meals.

Almonds and walnuts are also good for hair. Ayurveda recommends soaking nuts before you eat them.

Keshya Rasayanas or Ayurvedic herbs for hair promote healthy hair growth and controls hair loss. Amla, or Indian Gooseberry, is one such Keshya Rasayana which is well known for its ability to maintain hair color and strength. Triphala, a traditional ayurvedic combination of three fruits (of which Amla is one) is also good for hair.
