While hair loss is sometimes out of one’s control, such as in health-related cases like Alopecia and female pattern hair loss, there are many cases in which thinning or loss can be prevented. Remember that hair loss can be caused by bad lifestyle habits and poor nutrition. These are things that can be addressed by consuming lots of vegetables and fresh fruits, regular eating, exercise, vitamins and a good positive mindset.
Stress is a big factor in hair loss and can have a lasting impact. Finding solutions that help one deal with their own stress is vital, such as meditation, consulting with a loved one or taking a long walk to wind down.
Other steps incorporated into one’s daily routine can also make a big difference in hair health. For example, choosing a styling aid that offers UV protection, such as an SPF hair spray or leave-in conditioner, will protect hair from the sun’s damaging rays (Try Sebastian Halo Mist for protection and added shine). It’s also important to incorporate a deep penetration conditioner into your weekly hair care routine and protect your hair from heat with a thermal protectant (Kenra Platinum Blow Dry Spray both protects from heat damage and speeds up blow dry time).
Wash regularly but not too often – every few days should be enough depending on your hair type. If it’s thinner, don’t go too long without a wash as it can become oily, dull, boring and look thoroughly awful.
When it comes to styling, select good tools. They don’t have to cost a fortune but they should have basic features such as heat settings so you can customize to your hair type.
When possible, the key to hair health and maintenance is taking a proactive approach with a well-rounded lifestyle and being good to one’s hair and body.
