In This Article:

Cause 1: Hard Water

Cause 2: Unhealthy Scalp

Cause 1: Hard Water

Hard water contains high amounts of calcium and magnesium, both of which form a salt upon mixing with your shampoo. You’ll notice that your shampoo won’t lather enough and there will be mineral buildup in your scalp over time. These factors will lead to itchiness, severe dryness and hair fall.


If you can, attach a water softener to your tap. This will filter out all those unnecessary minerals from the water. If not feasible, then use boiled and cooled water for your rinses. Also, incorporate an anti-hair fall shampoo and conditioner in your routine to see visible results. Trust our nourishing Onion, Blackseed & Patchouli Hairfall Control Combo to curb hair fall by up to 90% and get 3x stronger hair.

Cause 2: Unhealthy Scalp

If your scalp tends to itch, hair looks limp, gets oily quickly or there are visible white flakes, then dear friend, you need a scalp detox. Failing to keep your hair follicles healthy and happy is one of the root causes of hair fall. A scalp detox will offer a much deeper cleanse as compared to shampoo, ridding you of dead skin cells, dirt and bacteria. Hair follicles when clogged, cause scalp inflammation and prevent the goodness from your hair oils and masks to seep in. It ultimately damages and weakens your hair, to give you unprecedented hair fall.


Add a purifying scalp scrub once a week to your hair care routine. It will gently lift all the bad stuff from your scalp and instantly refresh it. Our Tea Tree Oil & Peppermint Scalp Scrub has helped 92% users fight dandruff and white flakes. You should also include a scalp serum to boost new hair growth.

With a scalp serum, your hair follicles will soak up all the goodness of potent ingredients and land you stronger, healthier hair.

Cause 3: Incorrect Hair Wash Routine

Tiny slips in your hair wash routine can have heavy consequences. From saturating your hair with oil to over-shampooing and applying conditioner to your roots - any and all of these will damage your roots and shaft leading to hair fall.


While applying hair oil, make sure that you begin with your scalp and then bring down the excess to your length. Shampooing more than twice will make your hair dry, so take your time and massage it in really well. Conditioners should always be applied on damp and not wet hair. Squeeze out excess water using a microfiber towel and apply only on your lengths. 

Cause 4: Hairstyles And Cuts

To know what causes hair to fall out, it is important to relook at our everyday hairstyles and frequency of haircuts. It might be that those sleek, pulled-back hairdos are to blame. Causing a lot of tension and tugging at the roots, they weaken your hair follicles and there goes your precious hair. Along with that, if you allow those split ends to prevail and postpone your trimming sesh, because you want to maintain your ‘length’ please stop. Not only do they affect your overall hair quality, but also make them entangle easily.


Shake things up by using claw clips, scrunchies or bows to tie your hair. They look uber-chic and cause no pulling whatsoever. This will keep your roots relaxed at all times and reduce hair fall. As for hair trims, try to get a fresh cut every 8-12 weeks. This will keep the ends looking healthy and prevent hair damage.
