In autumn, all of us, to a greater or lesser extent, suffer from hair loss. We don’t get scared if we have an abundant, leafy mane. But if we already suffer because we have thin and scarce hair, the seasonal fall makes us panic. But don’t despair. You don’t have to stand idly by while you watch how you lose, hair by hair, your beauty, how leaves fall from a tree. In this post we will give you the best tips to help you reduce hair loss to a minimum.
Good habits to reduce hair loss
We already know that seasonal hair loss is a necessary natural process. But to reduce hair loss, and not to exceed the necessary amount to be renewed, you must practice a series of simple habits of hair health. They are so easy to apply that they will soon become part of your daily routine. However, your mane will make all the difference.
The first step in reducing hair loss is to feed yourself well. This is because it is impossible for hair to grow strong and healthy if it does not have the necessary nutrients to do so. According to Apeteat nutritionist Elena Gurucharri, to reduce hair loss it is important to consume foods rich in vitamin B, such as B6 and B12. These are found in legumes and oily fish. The benefits of these vitamins are many, and among them, prevent hair loss. B3, also called Niacin, stimulates blood circulation, which favors the growth of new hair. Potassium and iron are also very necessary because they contribute to the oxygenation of the scalp. Banana, papaya and spinach are excellent sources of these necessary minerals.
Vitamin supplements are a good option to replace the deficiencies of these vitamins and minerals, especially if you think that with the diet you are not supplying them.
Get enough sleep
Stress is usually one of the main causes of hair loss. Emotional disturbances also influence your body. For your body to repair itself and function well, you need to get enough sleep. There’s nothing else that substitutes for hours of sleep.
Massage scalp when washing
The moment of washing is the ideal time to pamper your scalp with a massage that stimulates circulation, so that the hair grows healthy and strong. These massages are fundamental to reduce the seasonal fall to what is strictly necessary.
Be careful not to hurt the scalp with your nails. Gently massage with your fingertips.
Leonor Greyl salons recommend spending time on a hair massage during washing to stimulate hair growth, as a palliative to hair loss.
Use an anti-hair loss shampoo
Use an anti-hair loss shampoo to control the loss, especially in times when it falls most, or even if you’re going through a stressful time. It is true that they are not miraculous, but if you use them at the same time that you put into practice the other suggestions of this post, you will achieve good results.
In fact, to reduce hair loss it is necessary to combine different factors that, applied together, will stop the loss.
Carefully brush your hair
Brushing your hair can be relaxing and also stimulates circulation. For that reason, that simple gesture of brushing your hair helps you grow stronger.
But make sure the brush is the right one. If you used a brush that broke your hair, in the long run, your mane would lose volume. And that’s the very opposite of what you want to achieve. In order not to break the hair it is advisable to use a brush without pulling . It’s a delicate brush even if you use it with wet hair.
Reduces the use of the iron
The use of an iron or any other heat tool does not cause hair loss or interfere with the growth of new hair. Even so, it has a negative effect that affects the quality of the hair, as it dries it out, making it brittle and dull. If you get to that point of no return you would have to cut it to eliminate the damage, because it is not nice to have long hair but damaged. In addition, if the hair breaks easily you will also lose volume, over time. That way you’ll never get the mane of your dreams. It is therefore advisable to minimize the use of irons. It’s time to develop your creativity and try new hairstyles to look good, without having to punish the hair.
Use hair extensions
Many women already use hair extensions to cope with the time when hair falls out the most. In this way you will not notice the loss of volume typical of this period. The clip extensions are very practical because you can use them only when you want. If, on the other hand, you prefer permanent extensions without sacrificing comfort, the adhesive extensions are ideal for you. These extensions have the advantage of being very light, so they are highly recommended for people who have fine hair.
Be sure to choose 100% human hair extensions , as these are the ones that last the longest. Besides, they look very natural, and no one will notice you wearing them.
Wearing extensions will help you survive the fall without feeling distressed by the effect of hair loss. And that’s the best help you can get because less distress is less stress and less stress is less fall. With extensions, you win.
