Like you, we here have spent a considerable amount of time hitting books or searching through the Internet for ways to beat hair loss, and by that we mean trying to prevent more hair from falling out and to encourage hair regrowth. Our efforts have allowed us to collect a whole bunch of useful information and tips on how you, too, can halt and even reverse hair loss. Read on:
1. Give your scalp some massage action. It doesn’t matter if you do it yourself or if you get someone else to do it for you, just make sure that you get a scalp massage regularly. Massage is not just a way to make you feel relaxed, it is also a good way to encourage better blood circulation in your scalp and hair follicles. The blood flow brings essential nutrients to your hair roots, which can in turn help them become healthier, sturdier, and more plentiful.
2. Eat meals that are hair-friendly. Yes, there is such a thing. Clinical studies are amassing a growing number of evidence suggesting that eating fatty and sugary foods on a regular basis is not doing any wonders for your hairline. Not only do these types of food encourage unhealthy weight gain, it is now also connected to lose of hair. So if you really want to prevent your hair from falling out, then do try to cut down on the unhealthy meals and to incorporate lots of fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet.
3. Give yourself a break. No, we’re not talking the famous chocolate wafers; instead, we’re referring to relaxation. Clinical studies have pointed to stress as a possible cause of hair loss among both men and women. It seems that physical trauma or emotional blow can also cause alopecia because they encourage hair follicles to rest and stop growing, after which the hair will fall our. To stop this from happening, try to rest and recover from any physical or emotional stress.
4. Practice yoga. Perhaps this is connected to number three, but many people attest to the effectiveness of practicing yoga in stopping hair loss. It seems yoga increases blood flow to the hair follicles, and (as explained in number one) this is a good way to prevent hair from falling out. Yoga also helps you relax and helps you eat properly. That’s the first three tips combined in one just one easy method.
5. Shy away from shampoo and hair care products with SLS. Often found in many kinds and brands of shampoo today, SLS or Sodium Laureth Sulfate is a harsh chemical that can cause dry scalp, itchiness, and hair follicle damage. All those can contribute to an increase in your hair loss.
6. Try to stop any itchiness to your scalp by using SLS-free products. This is perhaps a natural progression of number five. Try to look for shampoo and other products that are not just SLS-free but also calibrated to reduce itchiness, which can also lead to hair loss. There are specialized shampoos available in the market that really are made just to reduce itching in your scalp. Use that and help your scalp recover from hair loss.
7. Use a DHT inhibitor. Another acronym, DHT is the easier-to-pronounce name of Dihydratetestosterone. This is a chemical, which many believe to be a cause of male pattern baldness (MPB). So if you’re suffering from MPB, try stopping its cause to see your hair grow back to their natural quality and quantity.
8. Use a hair growth stimulant. Conversely, help your hair follicles regrow faster by using a hair growth stimulant. This won’t help you prevent hair from falling out, but at least it will your body produce enough hair to replace the ones that you are losing. And, hey, better yet, follow steps seven and nine to tackle your hair loss problem two ways.
9. Undergo a laser treatment. This one is a bigger decision to make than all the rest, but there are laser combs that are designed to help you prevent baldness. They work by increasing blood flow to hair follicles and well as cleaning the scalp from any debris that can cause yeast infection and itchiness. That means it offers a two-way solution to your hair loss problem: encouraging hair regrowth and stopping hair loss.
