Though hair thinning is not as serious as hair loss still, it is considered as an early stage of hair loss. Furthermore, studies have shown that it is normal to lose almost 100-150 strands of hair per day. These hairs are usually in the resting phase of the hair growth cycle.
Coming to loss of hair, this condition can be caused by a number of reasons such as genetic predisposition, medical disorders, chronic stress, lifestyle factors, etc. Some such factors are discussed below.
Excessive stress, whether physical or emotional, is often linked with hair loss. In fact, it is likely to cause alopecia areata and telogen effluvium.
Argan oil penetrates the hair pores and roots, thereby hydrating your tresses, promoting elasticity, increasing luster, and facilitating hair growth.
Moreover, this oil is particularly good for rough, curly hair as it reduces frizz, and makes your hair smooth and manageable.
Basically, argan oil is non-greasy oil rich in unsaturated fatty acids, powerful antioxidants, ferullic acid, sterols and carotenes.
It contains fatty acids such as palmitic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, and stearic acid. Plus, it has a high concentration of vitamin E.
The oil is similar to jojoba oil but packed with more protein and vitamins. Besides, it is less expensive than jojoba oil.
Emu oil fights baldness, and encourages hair growth and re-growth. It is non-toxic and hypoallergenic oil that works as an excellent carrier oil.
Besides, this natural absorbent oil has anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Thus, application of emu oil can also help heal scalp problems.
Moreover, it promotes cell regeneration and revitalizes the dormant hair follicles (those in the resting phase). In addition, it inhibits an enzyme called 5 alpha reductase which converts testosterone into DHT (Dihydrotesterone). DHT is associated with hair loss as it prevents the growth of hair follicles.
Aloe vera contains an enzyme called superoxide dismutase that encourages hair growth and prevents loss of hair. Aloe vera nourishes the hair and cleanses the pores. Moreover, it helps balance the pH on the scalp and removes excess sebum.
In addition, aloe vera is loaded with vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, choline, zinc, selenium, manganese, magnesium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, etc. It is rich in amino acids, which are considered as the building blocks of protein.
