An old wives’ tale suggests that you should eat a handful of sesame seeds every morning. This is because it contains a ton of calcium and of magnesium which are essential in keeping your hair healthy, and as such, essential to keeping your hair on your head rather than on the floor.
A scalp massage can be a great, natural, way to combat hair loss. You don’t need a professional to do it either! Use a bit of argan or coconut oil on your finger tips and rub your head in circular motions before you shampoo while in the shower each night.
It is crucial that you stay as hydrated as you can if you want to prevent hair loss. Being dehydrated means that your hair follicles will get weaker, which is one of the causes of hair loss. It is recommended that everyone should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
Avoid overuse of various chemicals in your hair. If you are continuously dying, treating, and using other types of chemicals in your hair, you will be more apt to begin balding prematurely. Try using natural products in your hair and avoid stripping your hair using chemicals that are killing your follicles.
If you’re losing hair, make sure that you strive to use natural shampoos. A lot of today’s shampoos, especially scented shampoos, are very harsh on the scalp and can accelerate hair loss. Gently wash your hair with products that are all-natural and gentle on your scalp to avoid further hair loss.
Drugs will work to weaken the roots of your hair at the follicle, so you should avoid drugs and alcohol if you’re hoping to strengthen your hair and scalp and to prevent any further hair loss. Make this sacrifice and your hair will become much stronger in the long run.
To avoid hair loss and breakage, be careful not to overwork wet hair. Before combing wet hair, gently towel dry and apply a product to loosen and remove tangles. Use a wide-toothed comb to carefully comb hair in small sections and don’t tug the hair from the scalp to the ends. Avoid yanking out tangles, to prevent hair loss, too.
If you’re applying monixidil to your hair in order to get it to grow, make sure you do this very early in the morning if you’re going to work. It takes a solid three hours for this product to dry, and it can make your hair look very sticky and unappealing. It’s only a cosmetic issue, but you may not want to run around with nasty-looking hair.
