Tips On How To Avoid Hair Loss
Is your hair falling out? Do you put a cap on your head to hide that embarrassing bald spot? You don’t need to be embarrassed, because you are definitely not alone! Hair loss gets even the best of us. This article will offer some solutions in dealing with hair loss.
Maybe being a little proactive with hair loss is the way to go here, if you know that you will inevitably lose your hair. You can reclaim a lot of power that baldness has over you, by simply making the choice to be bald instead of going bald. Shave your head and you can go bald on your terms, not nature’s.
Carbohydrate-rich food not only leads to weight gain in most people, it can also lead to hair loss in many, so try to cut back on the carbohydrates if you want to keep more of your hair. Carbohydrates get converted by the body into sugar, and higher blood sugar can result in quicker hair loss.
Avoid wearing your hair in styles like cornrows, braids or tight ponytails and do not use extensions while experiencing hair loss. All of these styles pull your hair tight, causing tension that can eventually lead to hairs breaking off or being pulled from the follicle, which is called traction alopecia.
Everybody sheds a few hairs every day. But if you are noticing a few extra hairs in your brush these days, you may be damaging your hair during your normal daily routine. Excessive hair-drying, straightening, and brushing can cause more hair to fall out than is normal. Try using the cooler settings on dryers and other appliances and use a gentle brush and don’t brush too hard.
DHT is the byproduct of testosterone breakdown and is the major factor in hair loss. This actually means that hair loss is due mostly to a hormonal imbalance. Many studies have shown that this is true, including one test among Japanese men who ate westernized diets. Improve your diet today.
There are some medical procedures which can help with hair loss. These generally take hair from a different region and cut it out at the roots. This hair is then implanted on the top of the head. This generally has very good results in most cases but it is very expensive.
When worried about hair loss, you should try to do without harsh chemical treatments that may damage and traumatize your hair and scalp. Forego dying or straightening your hair or getting a permanent. Instead, look into gentle ways of styling your hair that make the most of the hair you have and do not cause stress or breakage.
Many people still think it’s a myth that hats and rubber bands can cause hair loss in women, but in fact, it’s partially true. While hats and ponytails won’t actually cause balding, repeated friction and tightly pulled hair can cause localized hair loss and breakage at the hairline. Use coated hair bands and don’t pull hair too tightly to keep this to a minimum.
It is time to stop being upset over your hair loss. It is time to start taking action. There is not a problem too big that it cannot be solved, and comparably, hair loss is a small problem. Take the advice from this article, and fight to get your head of hair back!
