What You Can Do To Prevent Excessive Hair Loss

It is only natural that as we age, we often lose our hair. Even though it is usually men who lose hair, it is also possible for women to go bald. In this article, we will discuss some hair loss strengthening methods that will help you hold onto the hair you have and perhaps even stimulate some new hair growth. Read on to learn more.

Be gentle with your hair. Wash it gently using the most natural products you can find. Avoid scrubbing your hair and tangling it as you wash it. Instead, simply wet your hair and stroke your hair products through it gently. Massage your scalp with your fingertips and allow your hair to rinse thoroughly under running water. Use a natural leave-in conditioner to help strengthen your hair and reduce the number of steps necessary to keep it clean. The less you handle your wet hair, the less likely it is to break off.

Tip: Stress must be avoided if possible if you believe you are at risk for hair loss. Stress is a huge cause of hair loss and if you can't control it, you could wind up losing your hair.

When you are choosing hair care products, be sure to avoid harsh, unnatural ingredients. Specifically avoid sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, petroleum products and alcohol. All of these wreak havoc with your hair and skin and, unfortunately, they are found in almost everything! Read labels carefully and vote with your wallet by purchasing only products that are free of these harsh and dangerous ingredients. Look for products that have short lists of ingredients that you can recognize. If natural products are too expensive for you too purchase, look up do it yourself beauty solutions online to find lots of all natural recipes.

Get a good haircut that suits your hair and that will fall into place on its own. Avoid dramatic or extreme hairstyles that place stress on your hair and scalp. Be careful not to use styling products that dry your hair and make it brittle. The same shopping rules apply to these products as to shampoos and conditioners. Keep it natural for best results.

Tip: If you are sick, don't ignore caring for yourself. If you fail to take the prescribed medicine, or do something against your doctor's wishes, your body might not react well and won't be able to properly repair itself.

Be sure to take a good multivitamin that is high in biotin, folic acid, B vitamins and vitamin C. All of these work to strengthen your immune system and help you grow strong, healthy fingernails and hair. Eat a balanced diet that is rich in natural, whole foods. Remember that a diet that is about half veggies, a quarter whole grains and a quarter lean protein sources is a near-perfect diet. Add some healthful oils to keep your hair, skin and nails nourished and your joints moving comfortably.

Hair loss does not have to be permanent. Sometimes it is just a symptom of a minor health or environmental problem. Chances are, following these suggestions consistently for 4-6 weeks will resolve a lot of your hair problems. If you have followed all this advice for a month or so, but you still seem to be losing your hair, consult with your doctor. You may be over-stressed or even exposed to something in your environment that is causing an allergic reaction. A complete physical and some blood work will help determine the problem so you can fix it.
