Hair fall problem in kids and it’s causes and remedies!

Pre teens is the most important span of time in the lives of our kids! We all want them to grow up just perfectly, without any health or emotional problems. We, as mothers tend to even recite some great speeches and debates to discuss in front of our children in order to give them some enlightenment on this subject. Especially, when it’s our daughters. Gone are the days when growing daughters were assumed as headaches for their parents. Sadly so,even they grew up well and led a life of pride in their own sweet way. But today, growing daughters are epitome of beauty and happiness for all parents.

While our babies are growing in to beautiful girls, there are often some things that shouldn’t occur during their tender age. But these factors are making their mark because of various factors today like pollution, excessive intake of junk food, growing use of digital media, etc. These factors often affect the normal development of body and causing certain physical and psychological abnormalities that should otherwise have prevailed after the kid becomes full adult.

One of these serious conditions is, hairfall. Hair Fall, especially in girls during pre teens is an issue that’s needs serious attention. Because it may affect their hair growth during adult life a lot. And who knows, the hair quality and growth may never be the same ever after decades of caring and getting medical attention for the same.

As I said above, there are certain common factors of hair fall during this tender age, let’s get them checked in a more detailed manner:

Unhealthy consumption of food:

Due to increasing intake of junk food and aerated drinks be consumed largely, week roots of hair are a common problem. When the body doesn’t get enough nutritions, it tend to loose the grip in the roots too.

Less drinking of water

As we all know, hair fall and growth is mostly concerned with good intake of water. But kids nowadays, in their own sweet world, tend to feel lazy even to consume basic need of water.

Dirt getting accumulated in hair

Most of the kids are mostly outdoors, or even if in, we all reside in metropolitan cities,thus pollution and dust has a free entry at out place. Also the sweat gathering within hair leads to accumulation of dirt in hair.

Excessive use of chemicals and hair machines at a young age

Kids mimic and how! We know how our kids tend to copy whatever we do and this also is a great factor for weakening of their hair strength. Be it because of the trends going out largely or copying their moms and aunts, children colouring their hair with harmful chemicals and using hair straighteners and rollers at young age are doing a great damage to their hair growth.

Precautions and remedies
