Taking a quick Shower could be the reason you're going BALD

While most of the hair loss cases are associated with genetics, there are many other reasons that can trigger hair loss in both men and women. Unfortunately, your hair grooming routine can also be one of the reasons for hair loss and hair thinning issues.

Many hair experts suggest paying attention to your hair grooming routine in order to keep thick and lustrous hair on your head for a longer period. Although showers clean up the dirt particles and germs from your head, a quick shower can also be one of the reasons for hair loss, due to the scratches and hair pulling during the shower. Trichologists in Dubai warn from scratching and rubbing while showering to maintain a healthy and lustrous hair on your head. Whereas, spending more time under the water and gently massaging your head during the shower may stimulate the blood flow to hair follicles, ultimately enhancing hair growth.

While hair loss treatment in Dubai such as; Acell or PRP therapy may be the ideal answer to the hair loss due to quick showers, there are a few simple habits that you may need to adapt to prevent hair loss in your daily routine.

Keep your scalp clean

Keep your scalp hair healthy and clean by washing it after every two days with a mild shampoo that is suitable for your particular hair type. Most of us mistake their shampoos as a reason for hair loss. However, this is not true and the hair loss during a shower is a part of normal hair cycles unless you are losing it in clumps. [2]

Avoid rubbing and scratching while washing your hair

Rubbing and scratching while showering may damage the hair follicles and cause hair loss. Instead of rubbing and scratching, flatten your fingers and gently massage the scalp from front to back. Massaging stimulates the blood flow to hair follicles, which enhances the hair growth.

Avoid overusing hair drying tools

Hair dryer and other tools exert an excessive amount of heat on your head, which is harmful to hair follicles. Try to avoid excessive use of drying tools and let your hair be naturally dry.

Massage your head before rushing

Brushing the rough hair can be damaging, it pulls out the rounded hair, as hair are most vulnerable and easy to break off,when wet. It is recommended to have a gentle massage without rubbing and without using your nails before you go for brushing your hair. [1]

Hair transplant surgeons in Dubai suggest massaging your hair twice a week, in order to keep it healthy and strong. For the most effective results, use your both hands and gently massage your scalp starting from the frontal hairline to the back of your head. Repeat the process three times and complete it by smoothing your hand over the scalp.

Massaging your head not only promotes the hair growth but also reduces the level of stress. If you are doing regular massage and still facing hair loss and hair thinning issues, you need to consult a hair loss expert for professional assistance.
