15 Ways to Prevent Hair Fall

Everyone loves their hair, as much as i am. That's why, this topic is very important and no one loves to be called "bald" or skinny hair and so on. When im searching for the articles related to this issues, it's also gaves me a lot of crucial informations for my own benefits as i was in this situations too. If your body is healthy and well nourished, your hair will be your shining glory. So, here are 15 ways on how you can prevent hair fall.
  1. Consume more protein in your diet. As we know, hair follicles are made of protein. Therefore, it is advisable to eat a diet rich in protein. Include protein-rich food such as low-fat cheese, eggs, almond, beans sprouts, fish, seafood and yogurt in your diet. Soy milk and tofu are smart additions to the diet, as they are enriched with protein.  A low protein diet will slow down hair growth while a protein-rich diet will encourage hair growth. One study of the results of soy on the hair found that it not only strengthened the hair but caused it to grow. A great source of soy is tofu.

  2. Have a sufficient sleep. The body needs energy to function at optimal capacity. Inadequate sleep will result in insufficient nutrients for hair growth. Sleep can help your body reenergize  and regenerate. Read more..
  3. Calcium is another important nutrient for strengthening the hair follicles and roots in your scalp. Hence, include food rich in calcium in your diet. "Your hair grows about 1/4 to 1/2 inch every month, and the foundation of all of our new hair, skin, and nail growth is the nutrients we eat," says Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, a Chicago-based dietitian. "If you eat a healthy diet, you will grow stronger and healthier cells throughout your entire body -- inside and out."
  4. Exercising will raise heart beat which improves blood circulation to the entire body including scalp and hair. It also helps to remove the carbon dioxide and other wastes from the hair follicles.
  5. Alcohol and tobacco are the root causes for majority of hair loss problems. Hence, quit habits such as smoking and consumption of alcohol. Besides, caffeine and nicotine are believed to have an impact on the growth of hair. Caffeine stunts hair growth through dehydration, making it more difficult for the body to remove toxins. Nicotine prematurely hardens blood vessels thus restricting the supply of blood and nutrients to the hair follicles.
  6. Tight hairstyles such as braids, buns and ponytails can also lead to hair loss. The best way to prevent hair loss is to adopt easy hairstyle. Try changing your hair style to one that puts less pressure and stress on your hair and scalp.
  7. Brush before shampooing. A few gentle strokes on dry hair will help remove product buildup and scalp flakes, as well as stimulate the scalp and promote blood flow (which delivers nutrients like oxygen) to hair follicles.
  8. Stress can impact the body hair growth negatively by causing the circulatory system to slow down. Excessive stress and some medications are conclusively known to retard hair growth. If you have a medical condition and your physician has prescribed medications it is imperative that you follow your doctor's orders regardless of the impact to your hair.
  9. Hair care products should be chosen carefully, because they would directly affect the growth of your hair. Never use harsh shampoos, conditioners or stylizing products, because they would have a negative effect on the growth of your hair on account of prolonged use. If any such product causes hair loss, visit a dermatologist and some products that are suitable for your hair. In my suggestion, try to use hair care products that have organic ingredients,such as herbal. Since such products contain less harsh chemicals, they are often suggested to people suffering from the problem of hair loss.
  10. Trim your troubles. As the ends of your hair get older and damaged by rough handling, they become prone to splitting, Nelson says. Get regular trims, at least 1/2 inch every four to eight weeks. "Hair grows (on average) half an inch per month, so trim to maintain healthy ends," says stylist Stephen Knoll of the Stephen Knoll Salon in New York.
  11. Control the usage of hair dyes, hairdryer and curling iron as the overuse of this stuff can aggravate the problem of hair loss, leading to baldness. Hence, do not use such products on a regular basis, if you are facing the problem of excessive loss of hair.
  12. Deep condition once every two weeks. "These treatments penetrate the hair shaft and strengthen strands," says Patrick, who adds that using heat (from a blow-dryer) can intensify deep conditioning, as the heat causes the cuticle to open and the ingredients to penetrate.
  13. Water hydrates the body and encourages the growth of hair that is less prone to brittleness and dryness.
  14. In case you are coloring your hair on a regular basis, be sure to leave a gap of at least 6 to 8 weeks between each session. This will prevent hair loss. Let your hair turn gray than it's turn to bald.
  15. In men, herbs such as saw palmetto and licorice root help block the formation of DHT. The same holds true for supplementation with zinc. There are several natural products that stops hair loss by blocking DHT, such as Men's Premium Minoxidil  and so on. For your information, DHT is thought to shorten the growth phase of male hair follicles. Hair follicles need a certain amount of blood flow in order to grow. DHT may cause less blood flow to the follicles. When it binds to the hair follicles, the result is believed to be hair loss.
