In order to prevent hair loss, you want to consider eating a diet that is rich in lean proteins. Keratin is a protein that is found in human hair. Eating foods high in protein, mixed on top of having Keratin, will keep your hair follicles strong and prevent hair loss.
To encourage hair growth try this treatment. Apply olive oil to your scalp before bedtime. Wrap a soft towel around your head or wear a cotton hair cap for the night. Get a some sleep and wash the olive oil off the next morning. This will gently exfoliate your skin and get rid of accumulated oils, kill germs and stimulate new hair growth.
You want to avoid excessive alcohol usage if you want to prevent hair loss. It is a medical fact that damage to the liver can cause hair to fall out in both men and women. This does not mean that you cannot drink at all, just try to limit it as much as you can.
If you’re thinking about purchasing a minoxidil product to assist in the re-growth of hair, aim for a generic brand. Generic brands will still give you the strong 5% minoxidil solution and the product will cost a lot less money. Never pay for the brand name. You’re paying too much money for the same results.
Massaging your scalp on a regular basis can prevent hair loss, and can also re-grow the hair that has been lost. For best results use mineral oil while massaging your scalp.
Are you worried about hair loss? Relax! While it is true that stress can cause you to lose more hair than normal (humans normally shed at least 100 to 150 hairs every day), that hair will grow back once you get your stress under control! Learn to relax and be calm to save your sanity and your hair.
A great way you can deal with hair loss is by speaking about it to someone. Some people out there really, truly love their hair and the thought of losing it “much less the reality of it” is incredibly devastating. Speak to someone about this and it may make you feel more accepting of it.
Exercise is essential not only for a healthy overall lifestyle, but also to help re-grow your hair. Because your scalp needs ample oxygen and blood flow in order to grow strong, healthy hair, exercising more will boost this and allow for your scalp to produce solid hair follicles that ultimately lead to stronger hair.
Now that you are more familiar with your options for dealing with the thinning or loss of your hair, you can determine what your next step will be. There are a variety of ways to treat, conceal, or regrow hair that has been lost due to both medical and non-medical causes.
