How to treat hair loss? Ask this question and you will be bombarded with thousands of practical and impractical tips, ranging from simple DIY at home natural remedies to over the counter topical applications to cosmetic procedures. We don’t mind you applying anything you want onto your scalp, but the fact is that losing hair is often more than skin deep. But that does not mean you are completely helpless. With proper diagnosis and treatment, you can always stop hair loss and even regrow hair in the affected areas. Listed below are some steps, by following which you can effectively control hair loss.
Find the underlying cause:
The major cause of hair loss lies in the sufferer’s genes, but that does not mean that there are no other factors that can cause you to lose hair. There is a long list of culprits that can trigger hair loss from stress and anxiety to skin infection, improper hair care, poor diet, medication or any other medical condition. If your hair loss is not genetic, you can successfully stop and reverse it by simply treating the underlying cause.
Avoid harsh hair styling tools:
Hair styling tools, even the blow dryers, do more damage to your hair than the benefit. These tools can destroy even healthy, strong hair, so if you are already losing hair stay away from them. If male pattern baldness runs in your family and you can spot numerous bald heads in your maternal or paternal family you need to particularly cautious about these hair styling tools and products. Avoid them totally or if absolutely necessary keep their use to minimum.
Improve your diet:
Whatever you eat translates into your skin and hair, so if you want to have thick, healthy locks, simply improve your diet. Make sure you eat all the essential nutrients daily in every meal and stay assured that you are not going to lose hair. However, missing out on these essential nutrients is a sure way to damage and even lose your tresses. Nutrients essential for hair growth include proteins, vitamins A, B, D and E, biotin, iron and omega 3 fatty acids. Incorporate all of them in your diet and improve not only your hair but also your overall health.
Be gentle to your hair:
Your hairs are very delicate, so you need to be gentle to them. If you have started losing hair at quite an early age, it is highly likely that there is something wrong with your hair care regimen. Sometimes harsh styles, which involve pulling hair tightly, are the reason behind the hair thinning. If this is the case with you, avoid hair styles which put contact pressure on your tresses and start tying your hairs up in loose pony tails.
People often think shampooing more is good for the health of scalp and hair. While hygiene does play an important role in hair care, excessive shampooing can cause your hair to become dry and brittle. So be moderate! Shampoo your hair twice a week or at most every other day but never every day.
Massaging is the best way to increase blood circulation and improve supply of nutrients to the hair follicles. Give them a light massage at least once a week. It will soothe out your scalp, which is good for the follicles.
If you are losing hair and are a smoker as well, quit smoking for the sake of your hair at least. Nicotine in cigarette smoke damages your hair in a lot of ways – by shrinking the blood vessels to limit blood supply to the scalp as well as by decreasing blood’s capacity to carry healthy nutrients to the scalp. So, for all the smokers who are suffering from hair loss, quit smoking for your hair’s sake please!
