Although this is not a catch-all article, if you follow these guidelines, you will definitely reduce the amount of hair you traditionally lose from your daily routines.
Consume Healthier Foods
In case you haven’t read any of our other articles on this topic, the quality of the food you put into your body has a direct correlation on the overall health of your hair. With that being said, if you consume fast foods regularly, you might be diminishing your hairs health. However, if you’d traditionally describe yourself as a healthy eater, usually eating fruits, veggies, and naturally produced food in general your hair might be healthier. If tour hair is healthier, it is normally thicker, more colorful, and traditionally more radiant.
In order to keep your hair as healthy as possible, consider changing up your diet. Focus consuming recommended amounts of fruits and veggies, natural proteins (such as pork or poultry), and try to be more active. The healthier you live, the healthier your hair will be, generally speaking.
Continuing on, always try to drink more water. Increasing water intake can not only help improve your overall body’s health, but it can really help shape your hair’s health. Its recommended to consume at a minimum of 64 ounces of water daily. Try to hit this amount each and every day.
Treat Your Hair With Care
There is no question about it, if you treat something like crap, you’re generally not going to see a long term life. That goes with anything, whether it be a friend, a video game, an cooking utensil, or even your hair. If you weren’t aware, your hair is extremely fragile, and should be handled with care. This includes using a proper brush when brushing one’s hair, not using toxic dyes, treatments, using extremely hot equipment such as curling irons/straighteners, shampoos/conditioners that have harmful ingredients.
A lot of people I know generally like to brush their hair immediately after taking a shower. Contrary to popular belief, this is actually not good for your hair’s long-term health.
Knock Off The Bad Habits
Whether you’re into smoking or consuming alcohol or caffeine, its bad for your hairs health. If you can, try and reduce the amount you do these bad habits. When a person is said to be a smoker, they generally have poor circulation which in turn increases blood flow to the scalp, allowing more hair to fall out. Also, if you’re a bigger advocate for caffeine or alcohol, try and cut back. Drinking said products on a regular basis can slowly deteriorate the immune system and easily push out more hair than your body normally wants to fall out.
Stop With these 3 habits. We all know they’re bad and they’re reducing your overall lifespan expectancy.
Find Your Stress Reliever
Stress is highly linked to your hair loss. If you don’t control your stress, you can expect an increase in cholesterol, deterioration of your body and skins health, and ultimately be more likely to have less hair or deeper gray at a younger age.
There are an enormous amount of things one can do to reduce said stress. Instead of thinking about the stress every single day, try and work out the stress. Some people prefer to do yoga or meditation to clear the mind. This is a truly beneficial hobby that helps all aspects of your overall health. However, for some people, yoga or meditation just isn’t for them. If you consider yourself a action-seeker, you’re more likely to want to get out your stress with physical action. Some professionals enjoy going for a morning walk or jog, while others prefer to take the stress out on the weights at the gym.
Whatever type of person you are, it’s important that you consistently regulate your stress and find a hobby that you not only enjoy, but also helps you deal with your stress. By dealing with your stress on a regular basis, you’ll notice your hair falling out less and you’ll also notice your overall health greatly improved. This includes skin, mood, emotions, and physical.
Long story short, there are a bazillion different reasons as to why someone is losing hair. There are many causes for hair loss, and we’ve only touched on a few today.
