Do you get upset when you find your hair in shower after shampooing or stuck in a comb after brushing? If your hair fall is getting intense, do not panic. You can prevent it through useful tips given in this article!
Reason for hair loss is a popular subject and many researchers and scientists have presented lengthy theories on it as well. Some say hair loss occurs due to hormonal imbalance, diseases, nervous disorders, injuries and bad diet while others believe it is completely hereditary. The fact is that we all lose hair at one or another stage of life. Normally we shed a hundred hair everyday but we grow as many hair as we lose.
The problem starts when your hair stops re-growing and this is the proper time to take action against it. Those who say that prevention is better than cure are right. Though hair loss is natural and we cannot avoid it completely yet we can slow it down to a great extent if we follow some useful tips.
Don’t take stress
Stress causes hair loss so try to maintain a happy and stress free life. Try and stay calm. If you cannot control your anxiety, consult a doctor for proper medication. Tension and any type of strain damages brain neurons and results in excessive hair loss.
Take balanced diet
Lack of nutritional diet also causes hair loss. Avoid excessive use of hydrogenated fats and prefer taking fresh fruits, vegetables and foods rich in protein because the major composition of hair is proteins. Make a proper balanced diet plan and follow it strictly.
Avoid using chemicals
We all use a lot of chemicals for hair styling purposes like hair dying, straightening and curling mousse, lotions and jells which sometimes contain toxic ingredients that damage the hair texture. Avoid applying chemicals on the scalp because it weakens the hair from the root.
Avoid using hair equipments
Don’t use blow driers, straightners and curling irons frequently because they dehydrate your hair and eventually results in hair loss. Even if you use them, don’t bring these equipments too close to your scalp, set a low heat setting and don’t forget to moisturize your hair after using them.
Use hair conditioners
If you have dry hair, use conditioner after shampooing every now and then to make them soft and silky. Aloe Vera is a very good conditioner; it keeps your scalp healthy and prevents hair loss. Only a healthy scalp results in healthy, lush and long hair. So, choose a good conditioner according to your skin texture and use it frequently.
Take proper sleep
Some doctors believe irregular sleeping patterns and restlessness also causes hair loss. A proper sleep is of 6 to 8 hours for an adult. Manage your work, friends and families activities and take out proper time for sleeping. Irregular sleeping also causes dark circles around the eyes.
Take massage of your scalp
Scalp massage is very good for your hair. If you can take out the time to do it twice a day with your finger tips, you can get some quick results. Use any organic oil but avoid using your nails. It improves blood circulation which results in quick nutrition supply to brain and hair. It also releases stress and ultimately slows down hair loss.
Avoid harsh brushing
Keep your scalp clean and avoid harsh brushing. Don’t make hairstyles which weaken and break hair. Avoid using hair extensions because a lot of hair breaks and stretch in the entire process. Don’t tie your hair too tightly in pony tails.
