Hair Fall
(3 Products)

Hair fall becomes a vital concern for everybody at some point of time in their life. It usually begins with hair thinning, dry and frizzy texture, lack of natural lustre, and excessive hair fall. While most conditions are recoverable but persistent hair loss can cause permanent patches which can be understandably frustrating. While there are multiple causes and effects of hair loss, some of the most common interconnected factors that cause this condition are-

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Lack of proper nutrition
  • Medical condition or side effects
  • Dandruff
  • Stress and pollution
  • Excessive use of hair styling products

Once the underlying cause is identified and acceptance is achieved, one can positively work towards creating a well-suited haircare routine that primarily includes formulations that help with hair fall reduction.

Note - Prioritising overall well-being is a vital contributory factor that controls unnecessary hair fall.

Hair fall control tips
  1. Adopt Shampoos with milder formulations

    Make sure to go for a mild low-foaming cleanser that not only targets achieving a cleaner scalp but also strengthens the hair follicles. Some of the essential vitamins known to clinically strengthen and restore damaged hair are vitamin B3 and vitamin 7. They not only retain essential moisture but also prevents the scalp and hair from unnecessary dryness. To attain maximum results, make sure the cleanser is-

    • Paraben and sulfate free
    • Enriched with hair-strengthening ingredients like Tropaeolum majus extract and hydrolysed wheat proteins.
    • Prevents product build-up in the scalp
  2. Always follow up with a hair-strengthening conditioner

    Conditioning is essential to retain moisture levels of hair, post-cleansing. It also replenishes the hair with essential nutrients that gives the hair its radiance and volume.

    Babassu oil-enriched silicone-free conditioners are a great option for people with frizzy and dry hair. With the combined action of babassu and erythritol, hair strands-

    • Retain moisture
    • Release the unnecessary frizz
    • Improve overall scalp health
  3. Give your hair a treat with ceramide-enriched hair masks

    Hair masks provide intensive conditioning and moisturisation, that strengthens and smoothes the hair strands. They reduce hair damage and restore scalp health.

    Ceramide-enriched hair masks retain moisture, forming a protective layer around the strands to prevent damage and promote hair growth. Look for these characteristics in your hair mask for strong hair.

    • Silicone-free
    • Enriched with ceramides
    • Delivers for high porosity hair
    • Enriched with pea protein

    You can use hair masks twice a week.

  4. Update your haircare regime with a targeted treatment

    Hair fall control serums are a great way to prevent hair fall. They not only reduce hair fall but also strengthen the hair follicles and improve hair density, volume, and thickness. You may look out for serums enriched with active compounds like Indian cress, watercress extract, aloe vera extract, and aminexil that typically function by blocking the formation of DHT, one of the major reasons for hair fall. It also improves the blood circulation of the scalp that results in-

    • Stronger/longer hair
    • Prevents pre-mature greying
    • Strengthens hair follicles

    NOTE - Heat styling tools are a major cause of hair breakage and thinning. They make hair strands brittle, dull, and lacking elasticity and luster. Heat damages the hair cuticle, depleting moisture and natural oils, making the hair shaft more prone to breakage.

Ingredients known to effectively tackle hair fall

Shampoos

FAQs
1. How effective are hair fall control serums? How does a hair fall control serum work?

The effectiveness of hair fall control serums can vary from person to person and depends on factors such as the cause of hair fall, individual response, and the specific formulation of the serum. Here's how hair fall control serums typically work:

  • Nourishing the scalp and hair follicles with essential nutrients.
  • Strengthening the hair strands to reduce breakage.
  • Stimulating blood circulation in the scalp for healthier follicles.
  • Providing moisturization to prevent dryness and breakage.
  • Promoting scalp health by addressing oil production and inflammation.

Results vary, and serums are most effective when used as part of a comprehensive hair care routine.

2. What is the natural mechanism for the hair growth and renewal process?

There are four major phases of hair growth, renewal, and fall. Let’s understand this cycle for better hair results-

  • Anagen phase - This is called the growth phase, where the hair grows out of the hair follicle until its entire lifespan is achieved.

  • Catagen phase - This is the phase where the hair growth slows down and the hair follicle shrinks down.

  • Telegon phase - In this phase, the hair lives its entire life span which leads to the natural stoppage of hair growth causing hair fall.

  • Neogen phase - This is the stage where the hair is reborn and starts regenerating its growth.

Note: You may consult a doctor if you notice hair loss in patches or sudden hair thinning
