Loss of hair makes everyone anxious and no one wants to be bald. So everyone is always trying various methods to prevent hair loss. Here are a few solutions to hair loss problems. These tips will help in the regeneration of hair follicles but will not cure the underlying cause of hair loss. Since baldness is hereditary, many people think that there are no methods of hair loss prevention available for them. According to geneticists, a male whose maternal grandfather was bald will more than likely carry the gene for hair loss as well.
Causes of hair loss and their remedies
The causes of hair loss may be many. Very often some internal malady may be the root cause. This needs to be ascertained. Bringing into effect the proper preventive treatments can stop hair loss even before it begins by detecting the symptoms. Diseases like lupus or diabetes are a cause for hair loss. The hair loss serves as an early indication of the disease. The hair loss gets treated alongside the treatment of the disease.There are though a series of measure listed here that may seem obvious but if followed are easy steps that can naturally slow hair loss.
1. Dont pull you hair
By pulling ones hair you are placing strain on the hair follicle and may cause permanent damage which results in that particular follicle not being able to grow hair again.
2. Be careful not to rub you scalp against a towel to dry it.
The same reason as for not pulling your hair rubbing your scalp can damage a hair follicle. If possible pat away excess moisture and then leave the hair to dry naturally.
3. Dont use wigs (unless advised to by a doctor)
The scalp needs to breathe for the hair follicles to work to their maximum effect. Using a wig suffocates the follicles and leads to damage which results in further thinning of the hair.
4. Use the correct shampoo according to your hair.
Follow the directions and use the right shampoo for your hair (i.e. for thin hair use a thin hair shampoo). Shampoos are formulated for a reason and giving your hair the most help possible is a good idea. Also never over wash your hair otherwise you deprive it of all its natural oils and it will lead to irreversible damage.
5. Dont use permanent or colorants.
Using any chemicals on the hair can lead to damage of the scalp and hair follicles and thus leading to these follicles no longer being able to support hair growth.
6. Always wash you hair thoroughly after using shampoo
Shampoo contains soap and chemicals and needs to be washed of thoroughly after use otherwise they will also ruin your scalp.
You should carefully watch your diet if you are concerned with hair loss. Eating unbalanced diets results in deficiencies and your hair won’t get the nutrition that it needs. You should also carefully watch your intake of both vitamin A and E as excessive amounts of both these vitamins have been linked to hair loss.
Changes in the body’s hormonal functions can also cause excessive hair loss. Some of the most drastic factors in hair loss are pregnancy or long-term emotional stress.
8. Dont led your head get sunburn (Be careful of exposure)
If you are going out in the sun be sure to use cream on your exposed scalp or use a hat so that you dont damage your scalp and follicles.
9. Prevent hair loss – Caring for Exteriors
The diet and exercise take care of the inside of your hair (which is more important); taking care of the look of your hair thnen becomes easy. Selection of the shampoo, conditioner, sprays, gels, colours, and oils should be very relevant to your hair type rather than your mind type.
Though a bit risky, if you think you have an excellent diet and exercise, then you can even try new products without hesitation.
