Ayurvedic Treatment For Hair Loss And Premature Greying
Hair loss and greying are a normal part of ageing, but these conditions can be distressing when they occur at a young age. What are the causes of hair loss and greying and how to treat them? Read below to know the answers:
Causes of hair fall
The exact reason why hair fall occurs is unknown. However, there are several factors that can lead to hair loss. These include:
Hereditary - If your parents have hair loss/greying, then you are at an increased risk of suffering from the condition.
Underlying scalp conditions - Several scalp conditions, including Psoriasis, dandruff, and ringworm can cause hair loss.
- Other medical conditions - Other medical conditions that can lead to hair loss include anaemia, thyroid disease, iron deficiency, diabetes, and lupus.
Causes of premature greying
Hair starts greying when the hair follicles start losing pigment cells that contain melanin, the pigment that gives hair, skin, and eyes their colour. Some of the factors that may cause greying of hair at a young age include:
Vitiligo - In Vitiligo, the skin’s pigment-producing cells get damaged. Damaged cells in the scalp lower melanin production and lead to the onset of greying.
Thyroid Disease - Both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism may lead to premature greying by affecting the production of melanin in the scalp.
- Lifestyle-related factors - Excessive use of electric hair irons and dryers, smoking, unbalanced diet, and stress are some of the major lifestyle-related factors that can increase the risk of premature hair greying.

- A balanced and nutritious diet
One of the best ways to lower your risk of hair fall and premature greying or control these conditions is to follow a healthy diet that is rich in protein and Vitamin A to keep the scalp and hair follicles healthy. Food items, including eggs, chicken, fish, nuts, sweet potatoes, and spinach are a rich source of these nutrients.
- Proper hair care
When styling your hair, don’t make tight ponytails or braids to avoid pressure at the hair roots. Also, lower the use of hair colours as they contain a lot of chemicals that can cause damage to the hair.
- Lifestyle changes
One of the first lifestyle changes to make in order to control your hair conditions is to quit smoking. Also, hair loss and/or premature greying can be a result of a stressful lifestyle. Fight stress by getting proper sleep, meditating, doing yoga, and listening to your favourite music.
