Premature thinning of hair or excessive hair loss for whatever reason can be worrying and scary. Temporary hair thinning on the scalp is normal. This is because of the growth cycle of hair, that is, a large number of hair enters the ‘resting’ phase of the cycle at the same time causing hair shedding andsubsequent hair loss. The hair re-grows when it enters the growth phase. http://www.thehealthsite.com/diseases-conditions/acupressure-points-for-healthy-hair-growth/
Hair loss can also occur due to other factors as well. Your genes (from either parent), hormones, autoimmune diseases, stress, childbirth, illness, and even cosmetic procedures such as perming and dyeing can cause severe hair loss. Hair growth is restored once the condition is corrected, except of course where your genes are involved.

In some Indian religions, a chakra (Sanskrit cakra, “wheel”) is an energy point or node in the subtle body. Chakras are part of the subtle body, not the physical body, and as such are the meeting points of the subtle (non-physical) energy channels called nadi. Nadi are channels in the subtle body through which the life force (prana) (non-physical) or vital energy (non-physical) moves. Various scriptural texts and teachings present a different number of chakras. There are many chakras in the subtle human body according to the tantric texts, but there are seven chakras that are considered to be the most important ones.
