In Ayurveda a person is seen as a unique individual made up of all the five primary elements. The five elements are: ether (space), air, fire, water and earth. If one looks at nature we find that this too is made up of these five elements: water, land (earth), surrounded by air and space (a vacuum) and fire (from the sun).This is why we are considered part of the cosmic nature of life.
The food we eat and the weather around us are two examples of these elements. Though we are made up of these five elements, certain elements have an ability to mix together to create various physiological functions. Ether and air combine to form an energy that is known in Ayurveda as the Vata energy or dosha. Vata is responsible for the principle of movement. It can be seen as the force, which directs nerve impulses, blood circulation, respiration (breathing), and elimination (of waste). When fire and water elements combine they form the Pitta dosha or energy. This dosha is responsible for the process of transformation or metabolism- breaking down of food into nutrients for example.
Pitta energy is also responsible for metabolism in the organs, tissue systems and cellular metabolism, premature hair loss and hair thinning. When the elements water and earth combine they form the Kapha dosha. Kapha energy is responsible for growth and protection – stomach mucosal lining and cerebral-spinal fluid that protects the brain and spinal column are all types of Kapha energy. Although each of us have all the three doshas or energies – the ratios of the doshas vary in each individual. This makes us all unique. When any of the doshas (vata, pitta or kapha) accumulate in excess of our “norm” we need to reduce the dosha that has become excessive. Herbal supplements may accelerate the process of removing these toxins. Excess Pitta energy in the sebaceous gland, at the root of the hair, or folliculitis can make the person start losing hair. We need to reduce or pacify the Pitta energy.
How many different tastes of foods are there and should we have them all in our diet? The answer is yes whilst attempting to reduce the pitta energy. Sweet – wheat, milk, dates, rice. Sour – yoghurt, tamarind, lemon. Salty – salt, kelp. Pungent – onion, radish, chilly. Bitter – bitter melon, rhubarb root. Astringent – pomegranate, apples.

Excessive intake of tea, coffee, salt, alcohol, meats (particularly red), pickles, yoghurt, cheese and excessive smoking. Eating too many fried, oily, greasy, spicy, sour and acidic foods also aggravates pitta.
To counteract pitta energy your diet should contain more green leafy vegetables, salads, milk, fruits and sprouts.
*Take more proteins, milk, buttermilk, cereals, yeast, wheat germ, soybean and vitamin A.
*Take cool or warm but not steaming hot foods
*Bitter, sweet, and astringent tastes
*Use less butter and added fat. Consume food with moderately heavy textures.
The Pitta energy or dosha is characterized by fire or heat- so eating cooling foods would be more beneficial. For a list of Pitta reducing food get our book Hair Today Hair Tomorrow

There are conflicting medical reports of whether stress makes you lose hair. What complicates matters is that hair loss due to stress is delayed by a few weeks to a few months- so was it stress that caused hair loss?

Research shows that people with poor circulation due to tight caps or hats do not necessarily appear to be more likely to suffer from alopecia. It is only in a very small minority of people that this is seen. This may be due to impairment of blood flow in the scalp. Our advice is take caution in wearing tight caps and hats.

Authorities recommend that care should be taken with fragile and thinning hair. Using natural, gentle, non-harsh chemical shampoos is better than harsh chemical shampoos. Any tangles of hair should be carefully separated making sure you are not pulling the hair. It is not the frequency you wash your hair that counts, but what shampoo and conditioner you use.

Some hair treatments can damage the hair and lead to hair thinning or loss – but the vast majority do not. So if you are experiencing hair loss after using perms or colourants then avoid them.

Not true – in fact, if you are suffering from some types of hair loss such as Androgenetic Alopecia, this will actually just quicken your hair loss.

Yes some do, according to a set of scientists. Circannual rhythms (physiological variations that occur in the same period of the year) can be described as a change in the level of hormones secreted by your body. Scientists believe that these fluctuations explain much pathology (the scientific study of the nature of disease and its causes) such as male pattern baldness. A study called the “Tromsø study” screened all inhabitants aged 25 years or older living in Tromsø (Norway) for their Testosterone blood levels over a period of time. The study showed that Testosterone reaches two peaks during the year, one in February-March and the other September-October.
