5 Easy Tips to Fix your Hair Loss
People only start taking care of their hair once they have started lose them. If you can take care of your hair when they are healthy to begin with, it works out better both financially and emotionally as well. Moreover, prevention is better than cure. So preventing hair loss is simpler than treating the same.
Having a Healthy Lifestyle
Your hair, skin and nail act as a barometer of general health. When you are healthy, it reflects in your hair which is both shining, bouncy and looks good overall. The first sign of you being unhealthy is when your hair starts to fall.
So, whatever you do to stay healthy will also apply to your hair as well. Eating fruits and vegetables in right proportions on a regular basis will give you right amounts of Vitamin B, Calcium, Zinc, and Iron which have been linked to healthy hair. In fact, your diet needs to be protein rich as your hair is made up of proteins and stay hydrated at all times.
Taking Care of your Hair on a Regular Basis
Take care of your hair on a regular basis. If you have dirty hair, then it is likely to get infected and result in hair loss. Wash your hair at least 2-3 times in a week and apply quality shampoo and hair products in the process. While shampooing concentrate more on your scalp and roots, and while applying hair lotion or conditioner, concentrate more towards the ends of your hair as they dry out very easily and cause split ends. In addition, trim your hair at least once in a month as this gives you a better hairstyle and you can get rid of split ends.
Stop Unhealthy Hair Practices
Do not go overboard with your hairstyles such as braids and pony tails. In fact, many women pull their hair so tight that they come off from their roots and results in hair loss. So, change your hair style soon enough so that the damage made is not permanent.
It is better to avoid any chemical treatments (even herbal ones) which will change your hair looks in the form of styling, straightening, hot ironing, perming, and more. Also, avoid blow-drying your hair – it dries your scalp pretty quickly and damages your hair follicles. It is always better to air dry your hair for some time at least, or you can change the heat setting on the hairdryer to the lowest. The main objective here is to be gentle with your hair and look after them carefully.
Easy Home Remedies for Healthy Hair
Having healthy hair is all about identifying the exact root causes of it. You will be surprised to know, there are some of the best home remedies to have healthy hair which includes applying henna paste with ground hibiscus flowers, egg, and apply the same to your scalp and hair and leave for an hour before shampooing. This will make your hair strong and better-looking. Tea decoction or lemon squeezed into the water from which you bathe will cure dandruff. Use coconut oil or almond oil overnight before shampooing.
Hair Replacement Surgery
Though this is a costly affair, it is for those who have already lost hair. In fact, you need to have healthy hair growth at the back and sides just to qualify for this medical procedure. Here the doctor surgically will remove a strip of hair from the back of your head, dissect the hair graft under the microscope and implant them on your scalp with small incisions which will self-heal within 10 days. If you have completely gone bald, then they will take hair strips from your chest, back, stomach and at times from your pubic region as well. While going for hair replacement surgery, ensure the doctor is a member of the International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery.
To qualify for the medical procedure you must have healthy hair growth at the back and sides of your head to serve as ‘donor areas’. This is carried out under local anaesthetic. You can ask your GP for advice about hair replacement surgery.
In today’s stressful lifestyle, it is criminal to neglect your health. The age old adage “prevention is better than cure” completely applies to your hair as well. Your hair needs utmost attention, as it is what stands out and defines the person you are. Failure to do so will result in you losing those beautiful tresses and your identity along with it.
