Drug-Free Methods To Minimize Hair Loss
Losing your hair, and showing signs of hair loss can be a major stress factor for many people. Both men and women alike can and have experienced hair loss. There are quite a few different treatment options available for hair loss now though, fortunately. However, with so many treatment options available a lot of them tend to include some form of drug or prescription use to achieve the results promised. If you’re like us, you’re all about trying things the more natural route (at least in the beginning). Sound like you? We’ve discovered a few drug-free methods to minimize hair loss, and you may be surprised at just how simple they are!
Ok, we know this sounds so much easier than it is to really do. But one of the most common causes of hair loss is stress. Our bodies work in mysterious ways when it comes to how we handle stress. If you’ve found that you’ve been experiencing some hair loss take a look at your lifestyle and how much stress you have on a daily basis and try to find ways to incorporate more relaxation into it. Your hair line will thank you!
Don’t Wash Your Hair Too Much
We all grew up being told to wash our hair every day to keep clean. While we want you to be clean, washing your hair every day isn’t going to help you minimize hair loss. In fact, washing your hair too often can cause the reverse to happen.
When we wash our hair we strip it of its natural oils, doing that too often causes your hair to become dry and brittle because it’s lacking so much moisture. Break up how often you’re washing your hair to keep as much natural moisture in the hair.
Be Easy with the Chemicals
Chemical treatments of all kinds can do a number on your hair, especially once you begin to notice any hair loss. If you’re really serious about trying to minimize the hair loss for yourself, it’s time to take a step back from the chemicals. Yes, that means coloring, perming, etc. with the hair. They all wreak havoc on your hair and can take a lot of natural moisture out. Talk to your hair stylist about what options you have to cut back on the chemical treatments.
Don’t Be Too Rough on Your Hair When It’s Wet
We get it…we’re all in a hurry, especially when it comes to doing our hair. But when we wash our hair and it’s wet it’s in its most vulnerable state. Wet hair needs to be treated gently. When we’re rough on our hair while it’s wet, like rubbing too harshly or brushing it while wet, we can cause it to become brittle and have a lot of damage leading to more hair loss resulting. Instead, make sure that you’re being as gentle as possible with your wet hair. Use a wide toothed comb and avoid scrubbing your hair with a towel.
