Stop Natural Hair Loss – Hair loss can be caused by various triggers such as mineral deficiency, diet, stress, drugs, pollution or genetics. Wearing a hat or helmet can also cause hair loss. Whatever the cause of hair loss, it is important to stop this problem so the hair can grow back. The more baldness progresses the harder it is to fix the problem. Described below are some methods that can be used by men and women to help prevent hair loss.
Tips to Stop Hair Loss
It is important to get enough nutrition from your diet or supplement for healthy hair and avoid baldness.
– Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids can nourish the cell membranes of the scalp and follicles to promote healthy hair growth. This acid also encourages elasticity in the hair so it is not easily broken.
Zinc encourages the scalp to get healthy and helps regulate the hormones that control the oil secreting glands on the scalp. Avoid excessive zinc intake because this can also increase testosterone levels that cause hair loss. Adequate dose, about 11 mg per day to get the right effect.
Eating too little protein can weaken hair and cause hair to turn gray. Consuming natural proteins including vegetarian sources can help prevent this.
Iron can help the body produce healthy blood cells that can provide oxygen throughout the body. If the scalp does not get enough oxygen supply it can limit hair growth.
– Vitamins A and C
Both of these vitamins help the body produce sebum, oil from the follicles to moisture the hair. Vitamin C can also encourage the use of iron. You should not take more than 15,000 IU of vitamin A daily (5000 IU for men) because excessive amounts of this vitamin can cause hair loss.
Magnesium is used in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Magnesium deficiency can cause hair loss in men and women.
This is the trace element that the body uses to produce selenoproteins that are essential for maintaining metabolism, DNA synthesis, reproduction and immunity. Selenium can also be used to stimulate hair follicles to further spur growth. Lack of selenium can cause hair follicles to grow abnormally and cause hair loss.
2. Topical Treatment
– Essential Oils
Massaging the scalp for a few minutes each day with a few drops of sesame oil, almond or lavender essential oil can improve circulation and maintain follicle activity.
– Hot Oils
Any natural oils including canola, safflower or olive oil can be applied to the scalp to prevent hair loss. Warm the oil, then apply it to your hair. Wear a shower cap to keep oil in the hair, leave for about an hour, rinse with shampoo.
– Green tea
Green tea is very high in antioxidants that can promote growth and keep your hair strong. Brush two green tea bags in a cup, then place on your hair for about an hour. Rinse your hair carefully afterwards.
3. Hair Care
Limit Use of Hair Dryers. Constantly using a hairdryer to dry your hair can weaken proteins that can cause your hair to become brittle and prone to fall out. Minimize the use of curlers, hair dryers, straighteners, hot brushes, hair fasteners or chemical treatments. Of course drying hair is naturally healthier for hair compared to drying with an electronic dryer.
Cut Dead Hair. Hair coloring every 6-8 weeks can damage your hair. It is also better to choose to cut the dead hairs than all the dead hair. Much healthier not to dye hair at all.
Hairstyle. Styling hair by pulling tightly with rubber or clips every day can cause your hair to fall out. Tight ponytail hair style, woven braids and the like are safe if done properly.
Hair washing. Washing hair can help you prevent hair loss because keeping the scalp clean reduces the risk of infection and other damage that can make your hair fall out. Use a lightweight shampoo to avoid pressure on the hair.
Do not Brush Wet Hair. If you brush your hair while it’s wet, use a wide-toothed comb and avoid frequent combing of hair in wetness to prevent scalp and hair damage.
