The most traditional ways of tackling and preventing hair loss are through treatments such as hair restoration and controlled hair care such as shampoos and conditioners. However, Mother Nature has some great tricks up her sleeves. There are a lot of activities that can be completed every day that can prevent hair loss.
Everyone will say that you need to do exercise to keep your body healthy, but exercise does more than your cardio and muscles. Exercising every day is a great way of maintaining your hormone levels at an equilibrium at the same time. Because of this, testosterone levels and other hormone levels remain constant, which helps prevent the onset of hair loss.
Avoid Brushing Wet Hair
When hair is wet, it is in its least structural state; the pores in your scalp expand due to the heat and the water breaks down the hydrogen bonds in the hair. Because of this, it is best to try and avoid brushing wet hair as this can damage the hair and scalp, resulting in progressive hair loss. If it is necessary, brush wet hair with a wide-toothed comb.
Choose Your Hairstyle Carefully
If you frequently put your hair in a bobble, ponytail, braids or just keep your hair up in general, then you need to be very careful. These types of hairstyle create a lot of tension in the scalp and can cause a form of hair loss known as traction alopecia. This is where the hair follicles get pulled from the scalp and cause hair loss. To prevent this, try and have your hair down or have it in a loose style.
Remember to Relax
High levels of stress can lead to increased levels of hair loss, so it is very important to know when you are stressed and how to deal with it. Linking back to a previous point, exercise is a good way to relieve stress but exercising too much can actually lead to hair loss due to excessive sweat getting into the scalp. Make sure that the activity that you do makes you happy but doesn’t put you through too much strain!
