Most people at sometime in their lives will experience some form of hair loss. However, if you’re noticing more shedding than you are used to which isn’t related to any medication you are taking, then read on for some helpful tips.
Hair loss can be a symptom of even minor general health disturbances. Eating healthy foods is necessary to ensure that your body gets the minerals and vitamins it needs. Getting the right amount of nutrients is important to your hair health as well as your body’s health.
Watch your vitamin intake
As a lot of people aren’t getting their five a day, supplements can often prove useful. Sometimes the loss of hair can be caused by a vitamin or mineral deficiency so adding these to your diet can have a positive impact and correct certain imbalances.
Avoid tight hair styles
Your choice of hair style can also affect hair loss. If possible, avoid pulling hair into styles that require it to be pulled tight or heavily manipulated for long periods of time. Luckily hair accessories are now much more hair friendly, however, some hairstyles and poorly applied hair extensions can still do damage to the hair shaft and ultimately to the hair follicle.
Be hair kind
If experiencing any hair loss, treat your hair as gently as possible. Extreme tugging with a towel or brush, excessive use of heat when blowdrying, and chemical treatments such as dyes and relaxers can all exacerbate certain kinds of hair loss or cause hair breakage. We should always be considerate towards our strands.
If you’re worried about chronic hair loss you should talk to a qualified Trichologist to help get to the bottom of the issue.
