Hair loss is a common condition that comes with age, but knowing that doesn’t necessarily make it any easier to deal with. A certain amount of hair shedding is normal (say a 100 strands daily), but if it’s more than that, it can be pretty daunting to handle.
How to stop hair fall? Fortunately, there are a number of simple tips and actions you can implement to help reduce hair loss.
- Maintain a solid diet
Protein is the essential building block for all sorts of tissues, and that includes hair as well. Make sure you are consuming enough protein from dietary sources like milk, fish and eggs.
Incorporating vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids into your diet can also help with hair growth. You can get omega-3s from nuts and fatty fish like salmon, and seeds like chia seeds and ground flaxseeds. For a quick dose of vitamins C and E, eat some almonds and berries every now and then.
- Consult a hair doctor
If you start losing hundreds of strands of hair at a young age or quite suddenly, you must take action. Unexpected hair loss can be associated with a lot of things. It can be a symptom of stress, hormonal imbalance, nutritional deficiency, disease or certain products or medications.
If you suspect any pattern or a potential triggering factor for your sudden hair fall, consult a hair doctor and don’t hesitate to bring it up. When it comes to your hair (and your health), it’s better to be safe than sorry.
- Quit your bad habits
If you are serious about reducing hair loss and having a healthy scalp, then it’s time to quit a few bad habits. Smoking for example, can damage the functioning of the heart and the structure and functioning of the blood vessels, harming your circulatory system. Quitting smoking can improve circulation throughout your body, including your scalp, which will help strengthen your hair and speed up the hair growth process.
However, smoking isn’t the only bad habit that affects your hair and scalp. Here are a few more bad habits worth saying goodbye to for the sake of your hair:
- Not drinking enough water
- Not getting enough sleep
- Too much exposure to the sun
- Regular exercise
Exercise can really help stop loss of hair, both in the short and long term. In the short term, breaking a sweat with an exercise regime (doesn’t have to be a rigorous one) can help flush oil and dirt out of your hair follicles and promote healthy hair growth.
In the long term, regular exercise can be a powerful tool to relieve stress (which often contributes to hair loss) and keep your mind and body healthy, resulting in longer, healthier locks.
- Treat your hair better
Hair loss is not just the unusual amount of hair shedding, but also the deterioration of the quality of individual strands. Our hair tends to get drier and more brittle as we get older, so it’s important to treat it gently in order to avoid breakage and trigger more hair fall. Some tips you can implement in order to be more kind to your hair.
- Avoid the usage of hot tools as much as possible and if/when you do, keep the heat setting to the lowest
- Don’t change your hair colour too often as the process tends to make your hair more brittle
- Avoid unnecessary combing, brushing, curling, or straightening to keep your roots firmly intact
- Don’t use too many hair products as they may seem beneficial for your hair at first, but in the long run, may do more bad than good. Some of them contain toxic chemicals which can damage your hair follicles beyond repair.
Great! So now that we have discussed a few proven actions to reduce hair loss, let’s take a look at how you could actually treat this condition. You need a proper hair fall treatment method along with these tips so you can speed up the process of recovery effectively.
