That said, checking out the available information on hair loss is the way to start getting the loss of hair under control. Thankfully, many pieces of advice exist for those worried about their hair falling out. This article explains just some of them.
The way that you style your hair could be contributing to hair thinning. Don’t pull your hair up too tight, or wear rubber bands for too long. Although hair products have improved from the past, they can still cause damage. Tight ponytails can cause damage to the hair shaft, eventually damaging the hair follicles.
Hair Styling Products
Many hair styling products can actually speed up the blading process, so try to keep your use of them to a minimum. Many hair styling products, like mousses, gels and hairsprays, are full of toxic chemicals that can build up on your hair causing breakage and, in severe cases, hair thinning.
Modify the way you handle your hair after you shower to limit blading. After washing your hair, don’t roughly rub with a towel, but be as gentle as you can. The use of a hair dryer is not recommended. Use a low heat setting if you need to use a dryer.
Vitamin C will slow down your thinning hair. Vitamin C helps get the blood flowing to the hair follicles by maintaining capillaries, allowing more blood to get to the scalp. More blood flow in your scalp can make your hair regrow faster.
You can reduce the rate at which you’re losing your hair by eating a lot of protein-rich foods. Various foods like poultry, fish, beans, nuts and eggs supply your body with much needed protein. The protein in your diet can help increase the amount of keratin in your hair. With an ample supply of keratin coming in, your hair will be stronger and more resilient and slow the loss effectively.
Brushing your hair while it is very wet is not a good idea. If you brush your hair wet, it is easier to damage it. Dry hair is much better suited to brush and style, so wait until shampooed hair has dried before you brush it. You can pull out, split or fray your hair when you brush it wet.
Liquid saw palmetto is efficient against thinning hair. This naturally occurring extract neutralizes the male hormone DHT; studies have shown correlations between high DHT levels and thinning hair. This method is easy to use. Just get the juices from the fruit and spread them around your hair.
Anti-depressant medications may cause thinning hair. The ingredients in such drugs have been known to cause hair thinning. You might want to speak with your physician to seeing if switching medications is an option. Perhaps taking a new medicine will halt the thinning hair.
Not all baldness can be cured through medication; believing this can just get you discouraged. Just because a product works for someone else, doesn’t mean it will work for you. Research the products yourself and figure out what works for you to avoid wasting your time and your finances.
When using hair care products, be sure to protect your bed linens and clothing from possible stains. Allow the product to dry before you allow your head to come in contact with anything.
Massaging your scalp on a regular basis can prevent hair loss, and can also re-grow the hair that has been lost. For best results, massage mineral oil into your scalp.
Many people have reported that aloe vera has stopped their blading. Take some Aloe and apply it to your head at bedtime. This will stimulate the scalp and the minerals in the aloe vera may help to strengthen your hair.
