Hair thinning, or hair loss are common problems these days. One of the reasons responsible for this can be stress.  Stress, nutritional deficiencies, dandruff, excessive oiliness of the scalp, illness, thyroid imbalance, and hair damage caused by chemical lotion operations are among the most prevalent reasons for hair loss. With today's competitive environment, whether it's education or profession, stress is on the rise. Stress is on the increase today in this competitive world, whether it is education or career. Many doctors feel that stress can be a major aggravating factor, in many cases.

When stress is a factor in hair loss, the first step is to relax the mind. We provide clinical treatments to stimulate hair follicles, so that they start growing hair.

How Often To Wash Hair?

when to wash hair

A common question that is often asked is how many times hair should be washed. However, it is the product that is used, not the washing of the hair, that can have a detrimental effect. Hair should be washed according to the season and hair type. Hair that is oily, as well as hot and humid temperatures, will necessitate more frequent shampooing. It is important to pick the right products. Harsh hair products disrupt the usual acid-alkaline balance while also stimulating the scalp, causing a build-up of dead cells. If your work requires you to travel great distances, you should wash your hair frequently and with very little shampoo.  If there is excessive oiliness, a hair rinse should also be used.

Ayurveda For Stress Relief

Ayurveda For Stress Relief

Due to their great therapeutic characteristics, we have found Ayurvedic substances to be highly effective in our long experience treating hair loss. Not only do they help in the restoration of natural balances, the removal of toxins, and the stimulation of hair growth, but many of these herbs are also known to calm nerves, induce relaxation, and reduce stress. They also contain vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other beneficial substances that are necessary for hair health. Brahmi, for example, helps in the treatment of stress-related hair problems, while herbs such as Bhringaraj and Manjishtha are tonics. Amla is the richest source of Vitamin C, and it also aids in the restoration of optimal balance. Trifala, a blend of three herbs, is one of the key elements in our specialty hair tonic and is believed to promote hair growth. Plant ingredients and natural substances do not affect the hair's structure. In fact, they aid in hair strengthening. Herbal hair tonic is prescribed for usage on a daily basis. It is applied on the scalp, using cotton wool.

Diet And Lifestyle

The most essential factors are diet and lifestyle. Because the hair is fed by the nutrients in the bloodstream, a nutritious diet promotes healthy hair growth. Every day, a small bowl of sprouts should be consumed. Sprouts are high in amino acids, which are good for hair. Fresh fruits, raw salads, leafy green vegetables, whole grains, and curd should all be included in your regular diet. Make sure you get enough protein. Drink plenty of water if your scalp is oily or if you have dandruff. Add the juice of a lemon to a glass of water and have it first thing in the morning. Ask your doctor to prescribe vitamin and mineral supplements.

Learn To Relax

It is important to learn to relax in order to deal with stress-related hair loss. Physical activity has been shown to assist the body in coping with stress. Start exercises or do activities like walking or swimming, after consulting your doctor. Even walking is good for both body and mind. Yoga and Pranayam (deep breathing exercises) are beneficial in lowering stress. A few minutes of deep breathing can be followed by 15 to 20 minutes of meditation. You will find that there are no thoughts in your mind other than your breathing. A deep sense of calm prevails by following this technique.

You can get rid of negative feelings and fatigue by doing something different from your usual hobbies and responsibilities. Diverting the thoughts with a pastime or unique interest is helpful. It not only provides pleasure, but it can also be used to exhibit creative abilities and give dimension to one's personality. Social service is very satisfying. It can also bring you in touch with other people. These are all good stress relievers.
