Your hair enhances your personality and reflects the health of your body. In order to have a healthy scalp and hair, you need to give it the right attention. If you neglect it for too long, it could get split-ends and turn brittle. It could also cause you to have dandruff. If you do not take precautions, you could experience hair loss. In ninety five percent of cases, hair loss is genetic. However, there are many factors, such as vitamin and hormonal deficiencies, diet and general health that can cause hair loss. Also, emotional stress and hair coloring can cause the hair to thin out. Below, I am going to give you 10 tips on how to cure or prevent hair loss.
10. Your Diet
If you are looking to have a head full of hair, then I recommend paying attention to your diet. It is important to have a diet that includes vitamins and minerals. You should consume leafy vegetables, raw oats, whole grain cereals, dates, raisins and eggs.
9. Washing Routine
How frequently you wash your hair all depends on the type of hair you have. If you have oily hair, then you need to wash it regularly. If you have dry hair, then you should wash it two times a week. When you wash your hair, you should never use water that is too hot or too cold. Always use your fingertips and not your nails as you are washing your hair.
8. Combing Your Hair Properly
When you comb your hair, you should use a wide-tooth comb and comb in a downward direction. Never use a brush on wet hair!
7. Drying Your Hair
If it is possible, then you should let your hair dry naturally. You should avoid using the blow dryer as much as possible.
6. The Conditioner You Use
When going to the pool or the beach, you should use a conditioner that is effective as it protects your hair from the sea-water, sun and chlorine. When in the sun, I recommend you wearing a protective hat.
5. Use of Conditioner and Shampoo
When choosing your shampoo and conditioner, you should always choose a simple formula. This is going to save you money as well. The sole purpose behind the shampoo is to wash away the dirt and oil.
4. The Hairstyle
When styling your hair, you should choose a style that is comfortable and easy to do. Avoid using products that have alcohol and other harsh chemicals in it. Those chemicals can harm your hair.
3. Know Your Sleeping Pattern
When going to bed, you should gently comb your hair. Remove all bands or clips you had in it during the day. Your sleeping pattern affects the health and life of your hair. Individuals that are restless while they are sleeping may break their hair.
2. Limit the Use of Smoking and Alcohol Products
Kicking those habits will not only do good for your hair, but they will also do good for your health. Need I say more?
1. Avoid Those Harsh Chemicals
There are certain chemicals out there that can do more damage to your hair than good. For instance, perming and coloring your hair can harm it!
Those are 10 tips you can use in order to cure your hair loss, or prevent it. Personally, I have never had to deal with hair loss, but my friend has and she used these 10 tips in order to cure it.
