Hair growth follows a cycle - this is a proven fact. There are periods of growth followed by periods of rest, after which a hair follicle goes back into the growth phase. If this cycle is interrupted for any reason, then the hair tends to move into the resting phase for longer and longer, till it eventually falls out, and the follicle becomes replaced by fibrous tissue.
The most common causes of hair fall, apart from genetic factors, are lifestyle and diet. Today, there is a lot of stress coming in from long hours of Work from Home mode, late nights, lack of physical activity and habits like smoking. These are enough reasons to prevent the hair from getting back into the growth phase. So the longer the hair stays in the resting phase, it tends to move into the fall zone, and over time, the hair follicle may be permanently lost.
In people with a family history of hair loss, stress can accelerate the onset of hair loss, even at a younger age. For men and women with early onset hair loss in their twenties and late teens, stress acts as a compounding factor. Chronic stress causes oxidative damage to the hair follicle, with long phases of slow shedding. The scalp visibility starts when 30 to 50% of the hair is lost from the scalp. Stress also sets off an immune mediated hair loss, which may be either diffuse or patchy. Diet plays a very important role in hair loss, and causes like iron deficiency are relevant even today.
The easiest way to start working on your hair, is to start fixing your sleep routine. More than the hours of sleep, the time - at which you go to bed, is more important. The best time for Indian climate conditions would be 10 to 10.30 PM, which promotes adequate secretion of the natural reset hormone, Melatonin.
A simple reset of your sleep cycle allows your natural melatonin to act on your hair cycle, and push your hairs back into the growth phase. As hair loss has many causes, it is important to approach it in multiple ways, and one of the most powerful ways is harnessing the goodness of melatonin for reducing hair loss. This is great for people who predominantly have stress related hair loss. For those with genetic hair loss or androgenetic alopecia, lack of sleep or lack of good sleep routine, aggravates hair shedding. The rules are simple, early to bed and early to rise!
