Losing hair is a part of life that most people do not look forward to. If you had bald family members, you may be especially nervous about waking up one morning to find your pillow covered with hair, or your hair brush with more hairs than your thought.
If this sounds like something that you worry about, then you might want to know how to prevent this problem. Here are six simple methods that you can take to prevent the hair loss problem.
- Eat healthy foods
It is important to eat healthy foods and make sure that your diet contains vitamin A, B, C & E. These vitamins are not only helpful for body but also for your hair as well. Vitamin A and C help to make sebum in scalp, vitamin B helps to retain hair color and vitamin E helps to improve blood circulation in the scalp. If your blood circulation is proper then baldness will not catch you.
- Include eggs in your diet
Protein is vital for healthy hair and eggs are a quick and easy source of it. Cooked and ready to eat in just a few minutes, eggs are a great way to get protein, iron and zinc all in one hit.
- Massage your scalp
Scalp massages will stimulate blood circulation which will promote healthy hair follicles. Massage your scalp with your fingers for about 5 to 10 minutes to stimulate blood flow and promote hair growth. For optimal result, use essential oils like lavender oil, almond oil, olive oil and sesame oil to massage your scalp. Massage your scalp at least twice a week.
- Use a natural boar bristle brush
Plastic or artificial brushes can cause more damage and breakage while a natural boar bristle brush helps to limit damage and can promote healthy hair through stimulation of natural oils from your scalp.
- Reduce your stress levels
Many studies have indicated that high levels of stress lead to hair loss. Living a stress free life will help to prevent balding. To reduce stress levels, increase your amount of regular exercise. Doing yoga is a good way to relieve stress.
- Avoid hair pulling
This is because when you pull the hair, you are putting a lot of strain on the follicle and this can result in permanent damage. This will cause the follicle to no longer output new hair. So whenever possible, skip hairstyles that pull on your hair. While hair accessories have become much more friendly over the past few years, hairstyles such as pig tails, tight ponytails, and cornrows can cause damage to the hair and detained hair follicle.
