    •Most of them even today don’t know that, rubbing their hairs when they are wet results in hair loss. They keep rubbing their hairs with the towel to dry them up quickly after a head bath.
    •Pollution is one of the major cause for hair loss. Due to pollution, the dust blocks up the oil glands, resulting in reduction of the sebum in the scalp. When the sebum is decreased the scalp goes dry which leads to fall out.
    •Using other person’s towel in the lodge or at home leads could also be the reason. Usually at hotel or lodge, people come from various parts of the world, some might have skin disease, or scalp disorders. When you use their towels , you end up losing yours hairs and you won’t even be able to diagnose the problem.

Many of them don’t even have any idea about ammonium present in it. Ammonium is a chemical that is present in the hair colors, which helps the color to go deep in to the scalp. So always ask the salon person if you are going for hair color . If you are working it at home then check out the contents on the package before purchasing it.
    •Using harsh chemical based shampoos. Chemical based shampoos have acid in them, which removes the dirt quickly. But, it not only removes the dirt from the hairs, It removes all the oil from the scalp making the scalp go dry. When the scalp goes dry, we start experiencing the problems like dandruff and hair fall.

Do not pour the hot oil directly on to the scalp, you might damage the hair follicles.  Pour the warm oil on the scalp, leave it to spread all over the scalp, then gently massage the scalp in a circular motion and also make sure that oil reaches till the end of each hair strand and then wear a shower cap. After half an hour, wash it with a mild shampoo which is chemical free. You can also leave it for over night for completely nourishment.
