Hair loss is a problem which can affect everyone at a certain point in life. It can be due to certain diseases, hormonal problems or lack of nutrients. Some hair loss problems are easy to treat while others, the ones caused by certain illnesses like alopecia, cannot be treated. To be able to properly treat hair loss it is necessary to find the exact cause. The cause can be determined by a physician or a dermatologist. They will be able to determine the cause and prescribe the necessary treatment.
To prevent and combat hair loss it is necessary to:
make sure you are not using too many chemicals on your hair. Chemicals can have a damaging effect over the hairs especially if they are used improperly or too often. They can cause thinning hair and hair loss. To avoid damaging your hair with chemicals it is best to color and treat your hair at licensed beauty salons
as soon as you see any signs of hair loss visit your physician to determine the cause. Keep in mind that it is normal to lose about 50 to 100 hairs daily. If that number seems to be higher for you consult with your dermatologist
eat healthy and diverse foods, foods which are rich in vitamins and nutrients. The body and the hair need vitamins and nutrients to maintain their health. If the hair receives all the nutrients it needs it will be stronger, shinier and hair loss can be combated. Make sure you get vitamin supplements if you find that you don’t receive enough vitamins from your food, but be careful that too much vitamins can also affect hair loss
find out your hair type and make sure you are washing and caring for your hair using hair products destined for your hair type
make sure your hairstyle isn’t damaging your hair. Pulling your hair too tight may cause hairs to break of to fall, leading to hair loss. It is best to keep your hair a little bit looser. Try sleeping on satin or silk pillow cases to minimize the friction between the hair and the pillow, because this too can cause hair loss
Hair loss can also be related to age, so find out the cause of your hair loss or prevent it before it even becomes a problem. Keep your tresses healthy and you will most definitely be envied by everyone.
