There are people who consider even the few strands of hair that fall simply when combing as a major loss. Their minds too worry about this. The society is home to many unhappy people who fall prey to ‘fraud advertising’ and buy hoax medicines to solve hair loss problem. The hair grows through several cells and hormonal glands located underneath the skin.
Hair fall, premature greying of hair, dandruff etc are symptoms to many health-related problems. The existence, beauty, growth etc of hair will be affected by prolonged illness, complicated surgeries and mental stress. Thyroid problems, deficiency of blood, skin diseases, cancer treatments and prolonged use of certain medicines can hinder hair growth.
Dandruff, a fungal disease, is the most common cause for hair loss. Dandruff is the appearance of oily flakes. It prevents air and blood circulation to the scalp, closing hair follicles and not letting new hair to grow. In many people, dandruff results in hair loss in small coin-sized patterns. This may be another reason for baldness apart from heredity.
A similar kind of hair fall is seen in children as round scaly patches round or oval. People in a peculiar kind of mental state can be seen pulling their hair. Girls who are subject to mental stress are more prone to this kind of behaviour. An unstable condition of the chemical composition of the brain is thus highlighted.
