Most women don’t realize that hair fall is as common for women as it as for men. While it’s very natural (and normal!) to lose up to 100 strands of hair in a day, if you’re discovering sparsely-covered areas or finding more hair in your brush and comb than usual, something could be up.
Sometimes, it’s just age taking it’s toll. Other times, it’s genetics. It can also be how you treat your hair, or some combination of these factors. To prevent hair fall, you’ll have to start doing a few things to help your hair thrive. Read on to find out!
1. Don’t style your hair too tightly
When you pull your ponytail or braids too tight, you can damage the hairs in your hair line and cause hair loss. These tight styles put stress on the follicles which leads to loss and thinning. Use safe ways to tie up your hair with scrunchies or other soft materials that don’t pull on your strands and cause breakage too.
2. Turn down the heat
You might love the way your hair looks after you blow it out or flat-iron it, but you’re only making your hair brittle and prone to breakage. If you’re going to use your heat styling tools, make sure to keep the heat low and move it quickly so you’re not burning your hair. It helps to let hair air dry and then spray it with a heat-protecting spray before using your styling tools to get the look you want.
3. Take it easy with the chemicals
Chemical processing can do untold damage to your hair. Try to go with a color closer to your nature hue when coloring and take more breaks from those other chemical treatments too. These things make hair loss and thinning hair even worse.
4. Eat nutritiously
What you eat plays a vital role in how healthy your hair (and skin too) can be. Make sure you eat lots of leafy green vegetables, fish, lean meats, nuts, and beans to get zinc, iron, and vitamin B12 into your diet naturally. A good supplement will cover all your bases too.
5. Massage your scalp
One of the easiest ways to help prevent hair fall is to start pampering yourself a little more while in the shower. Simply massage your scalp gently after you apply your shampoo or conditioner. It boosts circulation to the scalp which will stimulate your hair growth. The key is to move fingers gently in a slow and circular motion.
