Everyone loves their hair because locks are considered as the crowning glory of a person, either men or women. Brushing or combing and running hands through your hair are very scary. It is more dreadful than a nightmare when you see your hair going thin day by day. Thin hair creates many problems that you don’t want to deal with. Neither you can leave it open, nor you can make different hairstyles to flaunt.

Now coming to the point that who is responsible for our hair related problems? Or what are the factors that cause our hair to fall off more quickly?

There is not a single cause of hair loss; multiple reasons can affect the health of our hair and they are:

  • Genetics
  • Hormonal Changes
  • Certain Diseases and Medications
  • Unhealthy Diet
  • Lifestyle Factors
  • Major Accident or Trauma
  • Improper Hair Care

And the last, but not the least is the increasing Hair Trends and the Over styling of Hair.

In this article, we’ll be having a lot to know about the current hair trends, its side effects and of course, the solution!

Hair Trends

Search it over the internet and you’ll find the number of results which will be mind-blowing. And yes! They look marvelous too. But it all depends on you that which ones to follow and which not! While making this wise decision, do keep in mind your hair and scalp condition. Not every individual has identical hair texture, strength or quality. So, choose your hairstyle wisely!

Let’s have a look at what is included in hair trends and how they are affecting your hair!

  • Hair Products – Blow Dryers, Flat & Curling Irons

Most of the hair products that we found previously in salons only are available in almost every household today. Some of these products were strictly restricted a couple of decades ago, especially in a country like India. Their use was reserved for only professional photo shoots, movies and perhaps, weddings at that time. But now, you’ll find blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons, DIY hair color boxes & styling gel in every house. These products are being put to active regular use.

  • Hair Coloring

The regular use of streaking and dyes can cause cumulative damage to your hair strands as well as hair roots. However, it may take much time before there are visible signs of hair breakage. Frequent hair coloring can damage the outermost layer of the hair shaft, which is known as the cuticle.

  • Hair Sprays, Gels & Other Styling Products

Have you ever watched any hair trend tutorial videos? If yes, then you might have found a mashup of bottles & tubes on the table top. Hair gels, serums, hair colors, hair mousse, hair sprays, etc; most of these hair products are loaded up with chemicals. Do you know why? Because any alteration to your natural hair, be in terms of shape, color or texture, requires the hair cuticle to lifted up/altered, for the product/equipment to bring its outcome.

  • Hair Equipment – Hot Rollers and Dryers

The application of excessive heat to your hair can damage the scalp and cause the hair follicles to fall out. The structure and texture of hair also get impacted by the high heat and the time for which it is used on the hair. With the prolonged use of such electronic heat equipment, hair loses its elasticity, causing damage to the cuticle (hair protective shield) that makes it more breakable. 

Act quickly before your hair problem becomes complex!

Hair loss beyond a certain extent can even hurt the person psychologically, leading to stress and depression. However, there are several medical treatments available to treat hair loss or even baldness. But why make it so complex?

As everyone said ‘Prevention is better than cure’. It is a true saying and we must apply it for our hair as well. That means if you see the signs of hair loss, then you should immediately find the best solution before the problem gets complex.

We are not recommending you to spend bucket loads of money for taking care of your hair. The products that you purchase by burning a hole in your pocket may or may not work for your hair.

Treating your hair naturally is always the best option for everyone. No medication or medical treatment can be as useful as natural treating methods with effective ingredients. However, natural remedies take some extra time to show the results. But these solutions do not have any side effects associated with them.

Do you know what the best part of using natural ingredients for your hair?

It is that most of the ingredients are easily available in your kitchen. So to get the strong, shiny and healthy hair, you don’t have the need to step out of your home!

Take Care of Your Crowning Glory!

Who does not want to look their trendiest best?

Everyone wants! We acknowledge this thing and we are not advocating that you should never use the hair styling products. Our way is to create awareness on what could possibly go wrong when you over-style. You should know what hair care you need to take, on a daily basis in order to ensure that the damage is under control!

The breakage of hair, damage and hair loss that happens due to over styling can be reversible if you diagnose your problem thoroughly and treat it precisely. In case you have reached the stage where you are facing excessive hair loss, then it would be a wise decision for you to consult with a trichologist or hair transplant specialist!
