Death of a loved one can have devastating effect on ladies and that causes hair loss. Body signals the mind to stop reacting and the pressure builds up for a long period of time. Then all of a sudden hair fall takes place at a particular place on the head and patches of baldness occur. This is known as Alopecia Areata. When the hair falls totally from the head it is known as Alopecia Totalis. Traction alopecia occurs when the hair is pulled tightly and tied. The pulling causes the follicles to stretch causing hair fall.

Hair Care Tips:

  • First and foremost wear a style that helps the scalp to breathe. Do not tie your hair tightly pulling at the scalp. That ruins hair growth. Leave it open and keep combing with a soft and gentle brush.
  • Wash you hair regularly to keep it free of dust and dirt. Sweat combined with dust can play havoc on your hair. After washing your hair leave it to dry naturally rather than using a hair dryer.
  • Oiling your hair regularly and a gentle massage keeps the blood circulation healthy and helps in hair growth. Use herbal oils that consist of natural flower extracts and herbs that help in hair growth. Nature has showered us with her bounties. Let us make optimum use of it.
