There’s something magical about running your hand through thick, luscious hair and tossing it back like Poo from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. Our hair carries our personality with it, changing according to moods and fashions, and even reflecting how we feel physically.
With something so important, it’s obvious we want the absolute best for our hair. While we can experiment with our hair, we should also be a little careful about the damage it might cause. There might be hair loss, dry hair, itchiness and hair breakage. To combat the various problems our hair might face, hair care companies have provided us with an abundance of options.
When dealing with hair loss, we must understand that it can be a scalp-wide problem or concentrated in one area. Hair thinning, however, happens at the hair follicle and gives the perception of baldness but does not cause it. Thinning hair is of course, a cause of concern and can be attributed to many things such as hormonal changes, chronic stress, medical issues, genetics or just aging.
