In this competitive world our work schedule is so demanding we hardly get time to care for our body. Generally, each and every one of us has some hair problem, but we hardly observe it in our busy lifestyle. In this article, we will describe different types of hair problems such as hair loss, hair damage, grey hair, greasy hair, frizzy hair, limp hair, dry hair, dandruff, split ends, etc. This can happen when we have a poor diet, hormonal changes, extreme stress, use of harsh chemicals, aging, and pollution. To slow down hair problems or prevent them from a happening entirely, it is best to practice a healthier lifestyle in all forms from how you manage stress, to the type of food you eat through to your daily hair care routine.
1) Hair Loss
Hair loss is a very common issue for both males and females. Usually, the lifespan of hair is anything between two to seven years and within this time there are three main phases of hair growth which are often called the Anagen phase, Catagen phase, and the Telogen phase. During the hair life cycle the hairs grow at regular interval and fall out in the end and as a rule of thumb, a loss of one hundred hairs per day is normal. The hair growth rate is high enough to counteract the loss. An excessive amount of hair loss can be worrying and some of the reasons for this loss are due to the health conditions listed below.
- Severe stress
- Medications treatments
- Overactive or underactive thyroid
- Hormonal imbalance
- Severe infections
- Fungal infections of the scalp
- Iron deficiency (anemia)
- Pregnancy and childbirth
Hair loss can be caused by hair breakage due to exposure to mechanical, environmental, and chemical factors – like brushing, heat styling, coloring, and perms.
Due to the intense moisture properties in conditioner, your hair can look moisturised, shiner and smoother, due to the protective coating, which prevents the hair from twisting and breaking. Sticking to a healthy diet, adding supplements to your diet, and drinking approximately two liters of water per day, will ensure your body gets the right nutrition internally. Using natural botanical hair care products, such as the Renove range, will help to prevent hair loss by stimulating new hair growth whilst reducing excessive oiliness and dandruff in the process.

3) Grey Hair
Graying of hair in young age is not unusual nowadays, we see many youngsters around with gray hair. It starts around the age of 30s and by age 50, most of the people are 50 percent grey. Graying of hair is a normal action but when it occurs in early age it should be considered as a hair problem.
Initially, hair is white. The cells in our hair follicles called “Melanocytes” generate pigments the main one being Melanin. This gives our hair its “Color”. Hair turns grey because the melanocytes stop making pigment or color. In general, the more melanin present, the darker the hair color; the less melanin, the lighter the hair color.
One more reason for graying hair could be hydrogen peroxide, a natural oxidant. Our body produces an enzyme called catalase that breaks down hydrogen peroxide. As catalase function decreases, the levels of hydrogen peroxide increase—and high levels of hydrogen peroxide block the production of pigment, leading to gray hair.
