Better for your hair. Better for the planet.
Are you tired of constantly seeing hair strands in your shower drain, floors, and sometimes even your food? Hair loss is a pretty common problem experienced by men, but did you know that it can affect women as well?
In the US alone, an average of 30 million women experiences hair loss due to various reasons. It can be because of hormonal imbalance, stress, menopausal symptoms, or other factors. For most women, the hair is the crowning glory, so to lose it is like losing a part of your identity.
Don’t worry —there are still some ways to save your crown (literally). In this blog are tips on how you can prevent hair loss and give life to your hair.
The excessive use of hair styling products can damage your hair over time, and if you use too many different products all at once, its particles will clog up your hair follicles, therefore blocking hair growth.
The heat of styling equipment such as curling irons and hair dryers can also damage your hair — especially when you use them daily. Also, it can damage the scalp when the heat is too high and it’s close to the skin. The most recommended way is to air dry your hair naturally.
It’s also useful to avoid hairstyles that will pull your hair too much. Not only is it stressful for the scalp, but it can also cause additional hair fall and breakage.
Everybody loves a soothing, warm shower, but staying in the hot water can cause further hair loss. The warm water, after some time, actually dehydrates the scalp and removes its natural oils. To prevent hair loss, using lukewarm or cool water to rinse the hair is most advisable.
Instead, use a product that helps detangle your hair. One recommended item you can use is a wide-tooth comb that better flows through hair, reducing the chance of breakage.
You are what you eat, so eat healthy foods that will promote hair growth. These consist of fruits and vegetables that are high in vitamins and minerals like iron, zinc, and B12. If your choices are limited, you can opt to take dietary supplements.
You can also drink green tea, as its antioxidant properties help prevent hair loss.
Just like you, your scalp also needs de-stressing. Massaging your hair improves blood circulation, therefore stimulating your scalp for hair growth. Aside from that, it can also remove blockages from hair products that you use from the follicles so your hair can regrow. Do the hair massages after rinsing your hair.
Hair loss shampoos often have oils and vitamins that strengthen the hair and prevent further damages. You can also use topical treatments like minoxidil that contain Rogaine — a dermatologist-recommended hair regrowth product.
If you prefer to restore your hair the natural way, you can use natural remedies that you canfind in your home. One of the most effective ways is to massage coconut milk inyour hair. This is a proven and popular method in Asian countries to preventhair loss. Other ways are rinsing the hair in green tea or applying aloe vera to the scalp.
Whether you're just starting to lose hair or are already experiencing hair loss, know that this is a natural thing, especially when a person is aging. However, there are treatments available that can help you regrow your hair!
