Hair loss

Unfortunately, hair loss occurs both in men and women. By the age of 45, approximately 55% of women will complain about hair loss. As you grow older, your hair changes density, so it’s a natural process – yet this does not mean you cannot fight it. In this short article, we will list some of the most effective hair loss treatments.

  • A healthy diet. Yes, it’s that simple. You need to stack up on foods that are rich in vitamin B12, zinc, iron and protein. That basically means fish, beans and lean meats.
  • Massage. You can do it every time you wash your hair. Gently apply the shampoo, massage your head for a bit. It helps to improve blood flow to the scalp. With better blood flow, you’re getting better hair growth.
  • Avoid styling. It’s hard to give up on styling, but that is something you might want to consider. Dryers, irons – all of that can cause hair loss.
  • Minoxidil. A well-known ingredient. It’s effective and it has been officially approved by the FDA. There are years’ worth of research to back up every claim.
  • Viviscal. If you don’t like fish or lean meats, this is the product rich in zinc, iron and protein. It’s fairly cheap and also incredibly effective.
  • Use the right comb. It’s a huge myth that combing/brushing your hair causes hair loss, but you do need to invest some time into research. Which kind of comb works best for your type of hair/hair loss issues.
  • Wash your hair three times a week. Thanks to all the dirt, sweat, dust, god knows what – your follicles get clogged, which, in turn, causes hair loss.
  • Avoid stress. That’s a solid life advice in general, but you’d be surprised at how much your stress levels affect the hair loss. Some psychological issues, even the ones people don’t really consider to be serious, can cause severe hair loss in both men and women.
  • Do not worry about it. Some people are predisposed to male/female-pattern hair loss, it might not be something that you do, it might be something that you are born with. If you’re not overthinking this whole hair loss issue, your stress levels decrease, and your hair loss issue might go away just based on that alone.
  • Visit a specialist. Going to the doctor’s is also a great advice in general. There are two ways to look at this. First off, your hair loss might be sudden, and it might be symptoms of a more severe disease (including lupus, but, relax, it’s never lupus). Even if the hair loss is not sudden or excessive, you still might want to visit a specialist. The doctors do offer some good treatments, based on your overall health.
