Five Simple Ways to Reduce Hair Loss
by April Maguire
Even though hair loss is a natural part of getting older, that doesn’t mean that you have to welcome it with open arms. According to experts, most hair loss is due to genetics, so there may be no way to stop it entirely in the long-run. Still, many men and women spend vast amounts of money on over-the-counter topical solutions and medications only to see no change in their hair loss rate. There are, however, a handful of simple, natural steps that you can take to keep more hair on your head without spending a dime.
Massage Your Scalp
It may sound too good to be true, but massaging your scalp regularly can help to reduce hair loss. A simple 10-minute massage can stimulate the hair follicles, improving the health of existing hairs and increasing the production of new ones.
De-Stress Your Hair
Believe it or not, a lot of hair loss is attributable to the way that you treat your hair. Applying excessive heat, overusing dyes and wearing your hair in too tight of a style can all damage the follicles and lead to hair loss. So wear your hair naturally and allow it to relax.
De-Stress Your Body
Increased stress can wreak havoc on your health, including the health of your hair. So in addition to allowing your hair to relax, you also need to take the time to de-stress the rest of your body. Take at least ten minutes every day, turn off the TV, put the phone down, find a quiet corner and just let the stress melt away.
Improving your overall health will greatly impact the health of your hair. Simple lifestyle changes such as eating a healthier diet and exercising regularly can give your hair much-needed nutrients and help to strengthen follicles. Another simple step you can take is to increase the amount of water that you drink, as added hydration will keep your body healthy and keep your hair from being dry and easily breakable.
Try a Home Remedy
Like over-the-counter solutions, homemade natural remedies for hair loss don’t work for everyone, but they can be a simple and effective tool to reduce hair loss. Do a bit of research and find a highly regarded home remedy, such as coconut oil or amla oil, and see if you can improve the health of your hair.
In the end, there may be no way to stop hair loss entirely. But if you give your hair the proper nutrition and steer clear of harmful practices, you can help to hold on to your hair for as long as possible.
