Hair fall is a physiological phenomenon, generally, after the mid-forties, but it is considered as a disease if it occurs before this period. For thousands of years, men and women of all countries and races have shared the tragedy of pre-mature hair fall.
Our Hair growth cycle lasts for 2 to 6 years and each hair grows approximately one centimeterper month. About 90 percent of the hair on our scalp is growing at any one time and 10 percent of the hair on our scalp, at same time, is in a resting phase. And in 2 to 3 months, the resting hair falls out and new hair starts to grow in its place. To shed some hair each day as part of this cycle is normal.
Causes for Hair Fall:
In Ayurveda, the hair is derived either as a by-product or produced as a breakdown product of Asthi (bone tissue). The health of the hair depends on metabolism of this tissue, which is dependent on our digestive fire. So, any disturbance in this tissue metabolism can affect health of hair.In Ayurveda, hair fall known as Khalitya come under Shirogatarogas (diseases of head).
Khalitya is a Pitta predominant tridoshajanyavyadhi (all three doshas vitiated disease). Based on the predominance of dosha, Khalityais divided into following types.
