What causes Thinning Hair and How to Stop Thinning Hair?

My hair is thinning out. I don’t know why they are falling down in so many bunches. Can you help me out with some treatments for thinning hair?

There could be several reasons why your hair is thinning out. Stress, which causes excessive hair loss, could be one of the reasons. Another reason could be the presence of dandruff. Yet another reason could be the pollution in the environment or the chemical treatments given to the hair. Thinning hair could also be part of your genetic makeup. You will need to figure out what is the reason for your hair becoming thin and then work accordingly. If your hair loss is due to stress, you will need to work at eliminating that stress. If it is hereditary, there is not much you can do about it. But if it due to dandruff or due to the chemical treatments given to the hair, there are a few things that you can do to take care of your thinning hair. Dandruff can develop due to a dry scalp, some sort of a scalp infection or even due to unhygienic habits. To get rid of dandruff, you can start off with adding a few drops of tea tree oil to your regular shampoo. Make sure that the amount of oil that you add to around 100 grams of shampoo does not exceed beyond 10 drops, as excessive oil may damage the skin instead of clearing it of dandruff.


Thinning Hair Treatments for Thinning Hair Prevention

You can also apply lime juice to get rid of dandruff. You can either remove the juice or apply it to the scalp with a cotton ball or else you can cut the lime into half and rub it directly on your scalp. Your scalp will immediately start scratching. This is the indication that the juice is working at removing the dandruff from your hair. Lime juice is one of the strongest natural bleaching agents. Therefore, make sure that you apply lime juice to your scalp only once every 15 days to avoid the premature whitening of your hair. Coloring and perming your hair can also cause hair loss. If you are subjecting your hair to these chemical treatments, then you need to stop doing so. To stop your hair from thinning further, you can apply castor oil to scalp and hair every week. Castor oil needs to be just applied (not massaged) to the scalp and left for a few hours. Castor oil helps to strengthen the hair roots. The results of applying castor oil will show only after a few months, so do not lose patience.
