3)Pregnancy:- Pregnancy is also one of the reason for physical stress. Hormone productions are also changed during this stage. Actually most of the women don’t experience hair fall during pregnancy and instead they have a shiny and healthy hair while carrying. But it is only after delivery that almost all women experience abnormal hair shedding (telogen effluvium) due to physical trauma caused at the time of delivery. It usually lasts for about 2 to 6 months post delivery. Add foods rich in iron, folic acid and zinc to your diet to combat hair fall and to regrow the hair faster.
4)Anemia:- A research revealed that 1 out of every 5 women are sufferers of anemia. Anemia is a major underlying condition to trigger hair shedding. Fatigue, cold hands and feet, dizziness are other symptoms of iron deficiency. Anemia is caused due to iron deficiency and iron supplements can help you to overcome this problem. Always take vitamin-D along with iron supplements to increase the iron absorbency by the body.
5)Over dosage of Vitamin-A:- Many of you are unaware that over dosage of Vitamin-A can accelerate the hair fall. Adults and children above the age of 5 years need 5000 IU of Vitamin-A per day, on an average. Vitamin-A supplements generally contain about 2500 IU to 10000 IU per serving. When these supplements are taken daily, they compliment with Vitamin-A taken through your foods and results in high dose. Check with your supplements and also the diet and plan a programmed diet so that you can curb the extra dosage.
