Excessive hair loss can be very stressful. It can also lead to low self-esteem. Some of the factors that are responsible for this problem are genetic issues, stress, air-pollution, insufficient blood circulation, nutritional deficiency, stress and hormonal imbalance.

There are nearly 100,000 hairs on your scalp. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), it is common to lose 50-100 strands of hair per day. But, if you start losing more than that, then you need to pay attention to this problem. Excessive hair loss can either gradually develop over the years, or can happen abruptly. The condition can be either temporary or permanent, depending on the underlying cause.

But don’t worry, there are some natural remedies and hair masks that you can use to control your hair fall. Have a look at them:
