How to Prevent Hair Loss...

Aug 17, 2007
Excessive hair loss is truly one of the worst nightmares that any person could have. It is important that everyone knows about ways to prevent it. As many say, an ounce of prevention is much greater in value than a pound of cure.

You should start adopting and practicing ways to prevent hair loss immediately even if there is no imminent problem. There are many ways on how you could prevent this from becoming a serious problem that could bog you.

Hair loss is inevitable and is a natural process that happens. On the average, people from all ages lose about a hundred strands each day. Such hair lost is totally and abruptly replaced. In many cases, new hair starts to grow even if the strands to be replaced are not yet falling off. There is nothing you could do to prevent this natural process.

However, there are certain guidelines that you should practice if you are aiming to prevent excessive loss. This is not natural and is usually caused by the tedious and damaging practices and products you apply to your hair.

Tips to prevent excessive hair loss

Here are some tips that could help you prevent excessive or unnatural hair loss. Take note that there are several practices that you might have thought off as proper hair care but in truth, are contributory to the problem.

1) Consult a dermatologist or a hair expert before deciding to use new hair styling and caring products that are released in the market. To prevent hair loss due to such products, make sure you properly read directions for use of such products and seek feedbacks and product reviews. Also ask experts about possible adverse effects of these products to prevent hair loss.

2) Watching your diet not only gives you proper weight management and nutrition replenishment benefits. It is found that eating foods rich in calcium, iron,vitamins and minerals would contribute enough in giving hair nutrition and thus help prevent excessive hair loss.

3) To prevent hair loss, try to avoid alternate styling that involve putting tension on the hair and scalp, like braids and ponytails.

4) Handle your hair properly especially when it is wet. It has been found that when wet, it is more fragile and vulnerable to falling off. To prevent hair loss after a bath, do not rub the hair briskly with a towel. Instead, blot the hair dry. This is a good and practical way to prevent hair loss.

5) Brushing the hair can be a contribution factor as well especially when you comb roughly with commonly used fine-toothed combs. Doing so would apply excessive pressure to the hair, making it more vulnerable to loss. So always brush your hair gently using wide-toothed combs and smooth-tipped hair brushes.

Overall, the best guideline to hair loss prevention would be to live a stress-free lifestyle. It seems impossible but learning to control and curtail stress would really help prevent hair loss because the hair, just like any other parts of the body is affected when blood and nutrition circulation is not optimal.
