Hair loss is a common problem which can affect both men and women. It is a problem which can affect people of all ages so it is necessary to prevent hair loss from happening. There are many causes for hair loss but genetics is the main cause. Other factors which can trigger hair loss are health problems, hormone dysfunctions, stress, poor nutrition, improper hair care.
Here are some tips to help you maintain your hair in best condition:
proper hair care is a good way to maintain the health of your hair. Healthy and undamaged hairs are less likely to fall. Use mild shampoos which are especially designed for your hair type. Use conditioner to restore the hairs moisture and elasticity
eat healthy and diverse to make sure your body is getting all the nutrients it needs in order to function at it’s highest capacity. If the body receives all the necessary nutrients the hair will also receive the vitamins it needs to maintain it’s health. Stay away from fast foods because usually they have almost no nutritional value
make sure you maintain the health of your skin and your scalp. Use hair masks once in a while to help protect the hair from external factors which might damage it
avoid pulling your hair into tight ponytails or cornrows because you might cause the hairs to be pulled out, thus causing hair loss. This is something you should avoid doing especially if you have thinning hair
avoid excessive hair dyeing and harsh chemical hair treatments like perms or chemical straightening solutions. These chemicals can actually damage your hair causing hair loss. It is best to dye your hair with natural hair dyes or to dye your hair only every 6 to 8 weeks
straightening or curling the hair with heated styling utensils, without following exactly the specific indications of the utensils and without using thermal protection products can result in damaging the hair and triggering hair loss
It is normal to lose up to 100 hairs a day. Any more than that is a signal that something is wrong so it is best to consult your physician or dermatologist for advice. They will be able to determine the cause of your hair loss and prescribe you medication or solutions to counteract hair loss.
