A woman facing hairfall and stunted hair growth

Hair stopped growing? This might be the cause!

If you are someone whose self-esteem has taken a hit because your hair growth has come to a stagnant point, then you are at the right place. First, we'd like to tell you that anything related to outer appearance must never stand in the way of your self-confidence, and we are all for it. But if it bothers you, read the full article to know what might be causing it and how we can treat it. It's always essential to understand the core of the problem to know its cure.

The cause of hair loss is always very subjective, both internal and external. Ayurveda focuses on the internal factors to solve the problem, which is why it emphasizes the three doshas. In this blog, we'll take you through the multiple internal causes of hair loss in detail, and you'll be surprised to know that every little life decision determines the health of your Hair!

Stress and hair fall

It is thought by scientists that high stress can affect the functionality of our hair follicles. When under tension, our body releases certain hormones to activate our reflex actions. During this process, the direction of blood flow shifts from our skin and scalp to the vital organs required to act against stress. This results in less blood flow to the scalp, causing a sudden drop in the nutrient level in the scalp.

One way to reverse this would be to indulge in a scalp massage with an ayurvedic oil. Massaging the scalp will result in more blood flow to the hair follicles, thus increasing the nutrient level. 

If you are someone who wants to avoid oiling because it's sticky and requires you to shampoo your Hair, then we might have just the right thing for you.


Sesa's Daily care ayurvedic oil is a unique blend of 6 powerful herbs and is almost invisible on Hair. It doesn't cause any stickiness and provides the scalp with the nourishment it requires. It has vitamin A and aloe vera to support hair health. These qualities make it our must-try product.

Deficiency of Zinc, Iron and Proteins

The deficiency of essential nutrients like zinc, iron and protein often leads to hair loss. Zinc boosts hair tissue growth and ensures that the oil glands around the follicles work correctly. Foods rich in zinc include lentils, spinach, oysters and pumpkin seeds. Iron, on the other hand, helps the red blood cells carry oxygen to our cells, which subsequently assists hair growth. Our Hair is made up almost entirely of proteins, so consuming enough of it is crucial.


Hair Loss Due to Chemical treatments

Your anti-hair fall shampoo might not be stopping any hair fall because it's weakening your roots. No matter what they claim, most chemical-based shampoos contain harmful, harsh toxins that can cause temporary or permanent damage to the scalp. You'd be shocked to know that certain shampoos that claim to be anti-dandruff can cause a lot of buildup on your scalp. Therefore we always advise our customers to use mild shampoos that are either purely ayurvedic or natural. Although easy and quick to use, chemical-laden shampoos can cause rashes and contribute to heavy hair fall, even the anti-hair fall ones.


Lack of Vitamins

Vitamins play a significant role in boosting hair growth and in its maintenance. Vitamin A is essential for the development of cells, and it also assists skin glands in creating an oily substance called sebum. Sebum keeps the Hair and scalp healthy by adequately moisturizing it. Vitamin C helps in the production of collagen and prevents Hair from ageing. Lastly, Vitamin E prevents oxidative stress and boosts hair growth. Making sure we are consuming all of these nutrients daily can be a task. So, to make your job easier, Sesa has developed an Ayurvedic Hair Care Juice For Daily Use. This juice is a blend of highly potent swaras herbs with the richness of various vitamins, and its regular usage assists hair growth. Check it out!


Hormonal imbalance

Among the various reasons that might be stunting your hair growth, hormonal imbalance is a major one. There can be a hormone fluctuation for multiple reasons, such as stress, menstruation, thyroid disorders, and menopause. For instance, during the first few months of pregnancy, new moms shed an excessive amount of Hair as the Hair that was previously in the growth stage, attributed to the high levels of estrogen entering the shedding phase. To help new moms deal with these changes in their Hair and body efficiently, Sesa has developed an Ayurvedic Hair Care Juice for New Moms. This juice reduces hair loss and combats postpartum symptoms!

Similarly, during menopause, estrogen levels decline dramatically, which makes more Hair enter the resting phase. This leads to increased hair loss. If you or someone you know is dealing with this, we recommend checking out the Ayurvedic Hair Care Juice For Menopause Support by Sesa. A hormone named androgen is responsible for hair growth in men and, to some extent, women—a decrease in this hormone due to age results in thinning of Hair. So, if there is an imbalance, it is essential to pinpoint the reason and take appropriate measures to fix it.
