Shedding strands of hair is a necessary and natural process. According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association, it’s normal to lose 25-100 strands of hair each day. That’s because each hair has its own lifecycle, and a certain percentage of our hair is in each phase at any given time. While some strands are actively growing, others are in transition toward rest, and some are shedding – creating space for the new strands to come out.
When individuals begin losing more hair than is considered normal, the condition is called anagen effluvium hair loss. An estimated 40% of women between 20 and 40 years old and 60% of women over 70 years old suffer from this condition of excessive hair loss. These statistics are unnecessarily staggering and the assumption that hair loss of this caliber is natural and unavoidable prevents many individuals from seeking natural hair loss solutions. Therefore, in desperation, many people undergo dangerous and costly drug and surgical interventions for hair loss, which can further cause unnecessary stress on the body and mind and cause more damage from dangerous side effects.
The good news is that a lot of excessive hair loss can be cured 100% naturally, without any chemicals or expensive procedures.
The Most Common Causes of Hair Loss and How to Reverse the Effects
While some people’s hair loss may be hereditary or caused by disease, many people experience anagen effluvium because of something that is 100% preventable. Some of the most common causes of excessive hair loss are listed below. Avoiding these practices and adopting a healthy lifestyle and a natural approach to hair care has proven effective in reversing the effects of hair loss.
Tight braids, ponytails, and hair extensions can damage your follicles, inhibiting your body’s ability to produce new strands of hair. A relatively simple way to prevent hair loss is to adopt elegant hairstyles, naturally flowing and honoring your unique hair type. Loose braids and buns along with ponytail holders that can accommodate thicker hair will help prevent excessive strain on the scalp and follicles. Letting your hair down regularly also reduces stress on the strands.
Heating tools for straightening and curling can dehydrate and weaken your hair leading to brittleness, split ends, and loss of hair volume. Finding natural alternatives can greatly prevent hair loss.
When it comes to brushing or combing your hair, avoid doing so while your hair is wet, vulnerable, and prone to breakage. Be sure to brush your hair only when it is completely dry.
The causes of scalp disorders can range from immune system imbalances to damage caused by the hairstyling practices mentioned earlier and the use of toxic hair care products. Adopting a lifestyle inclusive of healthy living practices and all-natural skin and hair products containing powerful antifungal and antimicrobial properties can help regulate, heal, and prevent many hair and scalp ailments including dandruff, psoriasis, ringworm, and even lice. Helping to restore your scalp and hair to optimum health is within grasp and is the most effective way to reverse hair loss.
Exposing your vibrant and living hair and scalp to chemicals is a great contributor to scalp disorders and loss of hair. Many artificial dyes, chemical hair relaxers, parabens, silicones, and artificial fragrances haven’t been tested for safety and strip the hair of naturally occurring oils, which help protect the hair and prevent hair loss. Even some organic hair and skincare products include unnecessary and harmful chemicals that damage the hair despite an individuals’ best efforts to live an otherwise healthy lifestyle. We at Morrocco Method recommend you research the ingredients in your hair and skincare products! We pride ourselves in providing all-natural, vegan, paleo, and organic products free from any harmful chemicals that could counteract or inhibit hair and scalp health.
