The first signs of hair loss are usually disregarded as insignificant or ignored to the point when hiding bald patches is no longer possible. Most people are unaware that receding hair should be taken seriously from the start, especially when it comes to androgenic alopecia, as early treatment is crucial in order to preserve your hair follicle life.
HOW TO STOP HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN
Enjoy a good night’s sleep and fresh air. Apart from getting sufficient quality sleep, you should also spend at least half an hour in the open air every day.
Quit bad habits. Your health and beauty can be severely affected with bad habits, such as smoking and alcohol.
Avoid excessive heating or cooling of the head. Get into a habit of wearing hats no matter what the season; wool caps are best for winter, and light Panama or straw hats for summer.
Give your hair proper treatment. Have in mind that the less you treat your hair with hot curling irons or hair dryers, the better. You should even stay away from metal combs!
No chemical treatment and hair coloring! This will only worsen the condition. Practice scalp massages with your fingers or a wooden brush as this will not only improve blood circulation, but also strengthen your hair follicles.
Avoid stress. Stress has adverse effects on your overall health including your hair health. Cutting down stress in your life is essential.
Healthy diet is very important. Improper diet, including fasting and vegetarianism, can severely affect your endocrine and digestive system, which, in turn, may give sufficient grounds for alopecia and hair loss in women.
A balanced diet comprising vitamin C, D, E and B complex along with some minerals including calcium, magnesium, copper, and iron as well as fish oils can significantly improve your hair health.
HAIR LOSS REMEDIES
Except for a healthy diet, hair loss can also be addressed from the outside. For this, there are many folk remedies which can alleviate the problem.
