I was recently asked by someone – “What is the real cause of hair fall? I’ve tried everything and nothing’s worked.”
The person wasn’t in the age group where balding is a hereditary expression, so I was reminded of my own struggles with hair loss over the years through pregnancy and giving birth and so on and then so many others who experience sudden hair loss.
If you’re eating the right sort of food, by which I mean, after you’ve had your meal you get a good night of sleep, which means you’ve had enough good fat, then your hair should be pretty much in good shape.
If it isn’t and it’s falling all over the place, and you haven’t had chemotherapy recently, it’s most often an identity crisis – perhaps caused by a change of location, or a change in relationships, loss, betrayal, you get the picture.
My great great grandad and teacher John Waltham told me something I’ve remembered over the years and applied successfully to various hair loss tragedies (among others of course).
Every crisis is an identity crisis.
How can knowing that stop hair falling you ask. It does because sudden hair fall that’s not because of a physical cause like poisoning or chemo or lack of nutrition, is most often the body reacting to emotional shock that’s caused an identity shift or crisis.
You see hair is not dead cells. It’s an extension of our nervous system like fingers are of the hand. Hair feel things, sense things, memories are stored in hair, hair even hurts sometimes.
