Hair Care Routines That are Damaging Your Hair

Excessive hair fall, thinning of hair and balding are reasons to give sleepless nights to people all over the world. In contrast, baldness, thinning, leave a dent on the overall appearance of the affected person- leaving his/her self-esteem and confidence at the lowest!

There are numerous reasons for hair loss; from simple causes like unbalanced diet, erratic lifestyle to more serious & damaging ones like chronic illnesses, strong medicines, hormonal imbalances, etc.

But there are a few unusually bizarre, startling causes that very few of us are aware of which is resulting in substantial hair loss.


REASON 1: HAIR STYLES & STYLING GADGETS:To look chic & dazzling one adopts to latest trends & styles but when it comes to hair one should use caution & make aware decisions. Procedures like straightening as well as curling, use heat which saps the moisture making the mane brittle & lusterless.

Hairstyles like tight ponytails & braiding, if done regularly, lead to weakening & breakage of hair. Hair should be treated with the utmost care as they are delicate.


REASON 2: HIGH LEVELS OF DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE (DHT): It may come as a surprise to many that DHT, a testosterone, which is basically responsible for hair growth all over the body, typically in men, might lead to balding if it’s present in high levels and it also affects the scalp. Severe damage is caused to the follicles which get miniaturized & stop growing. Therefore, when looking for hair loss treatment in men the DHT level is checked.


REASON 3: OVER EXERCISING: While a moderate exercise regime does wonders to the body, mind & hair, over exercising leads to thinning & baldness. The lack of energy puts stress on the body. Combined with this the excessive sweat attracts pollutants & clogs the scalp resulting in adversely impacting the follicles.


REASON 4: EXCESS OF VITAMIN A: While the majority of us are conscious that deficiencies of proteins & vitamins give rise to hair fall, not many of us are aware that excessive dosage of vitamin A can be equally damaging. Hence, intake of vitamin A should be restricted to the prescribed limit.


REASON 5: PILLOW COVERS:Astonishing but logically true is the fact that the kind of pillowcase we use reflects on the health of our hair. About 8-9 hours our hair are in direct contact with the pillowcase & in case the material of the case isn’t compatible, it will make the tresses dry, frizzy and brittle. Studies conclude that purely cotton fabrics tend to absorb the moisture from the scalp resulting in weakening and breakage of hair.


REASON 6: FAULTY WAY OF COMBING & DRYING: The most common cause of damage to hair is our faulty habits of combing and drying the hair. Once the hair is washed & conditioned, it should be gently pat dried with soft fur towel. Regular use of hair dryer should be avoided to the maximum extent as it would ultimately lead to dryness & aggravate damage. Broad-toothed combs should be used as they delicately move over the strands without breaking them. It is best to let hair dry before combing.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
