Dealing with hair loss is a pain. Alopecia can occur for a variety of reasons and improving hair growth can seem impossible.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are some simple things you can do to improve your hair density today.
In today’s blog post, you’ll learn 8 easy ways to improve your hair loss right now.
If you aren’t getting the proper nutrients and vitamins for your body, hair loss could occur as a side effect. To increase hair density and encourage hair growth, make sure you have enough vitamin A, B-vitamins, iron, zinc, and vitamin C.
Your hair care could greatly impact hair loss. To make sure you don’t start to lose your hair, don’t brush your wet hair right after the shower, brush your hair too frequently, or shampoo your hair too often. These may seem like small steps, but properly taking care of your hair can improve your hair growth drastically.
Regularly cutting your hair keeps it healthy and encourages hair growth. Regular trims will get rid of unhealthy split ends and cause your hair to have less breakage and flyaways overall.
Many hair styles can encourage hair loss. Avoid styles that cause you to use excessive heat on your hair. Don’t use the blow dryers, curling irons, and straighteners too often. Let your hair air dry every once in a while to avoid heat damage.
Some medications can impact your hair restoration. Look at medications that you’re taking and see if hair loss is one of the side effects. If so, you might want to ask your doctor if there’s a different medication you could try or if there are ways to avoid losing your hair.
Did you know that smoking and alcohol can actually encourage hair loss? This can happen because both smoking and alcohol impact the nutrients in your body. Alcohol impacts the levels of estrogen and zinc and smoking restricts circulation of nutrients. Getting the proper nutrients is very important for hair growth.
Drinking enough water throughout the day strengthens hair growth and can actually minimize dandruff. If you’re dehydrated, hair growth is immediately halted, and the lack of moisture can make your hair brittle or split.
Lastly, PRP for hair loss is one of the best treatments out there. It involves a simple injection of your platelets into the scalp. PRP will help increase hair density because it increases hair thickness, triggers and maintains the hair growth phase, and controls the hair growth cycle.
Overall, if you’re experiencing severe alopecia, make sure that you consult with a medical professional about hair loss treatment options.
