Want to keep your locks lush and prevent hair loss? Read on for tips to optimize your hair health.
Preventing Hair Loss
Determine if your hair loss is temporary or the result of an underlying condition to guide treatment.
Assess Your Hair Loss
Ensure you get enough iron, zinc, vitamin D, omega-3s, and protein which promote hair growth and strength.
Address Nutrient Deficiencies
Chronic stress leads to elevated cortisol which can trigger hair loss. Try meditation, yoga, or journaling to lower stress.
Harsh shampoos, dyes, and heat tools damage follicles causing hair fall. Switch to mild sulfate-free shampoos.
Use Gentle Hair Products
Massaging the scalp improves circulation, bringing nutrients to follicles. Try using essential oils.
Stimulate Your Scalp
Tight ponytails, buns, braids, and cornrows damage follicles and cause hair breakage over time.
Avoid Tight Hairstyles
See a dermatologist for scalp infections, skin conditions, hormonal imbalances, or autoimmune diseases causing hair loss.
