For most who start to notice hair loss, the first question that comes to mind is: how do I stop this? What can I do RIGHT NOW to stop my hair from falling out? Although the answer very much depends on the individual situation, there are some simple remedies to try!
But before we get into that, let us start by saying: before you can ask the question of HOW, ask the question of WHY. Our recent blog post, Why Am I Losing My Hair walks through some of the main causes of hair loss. Give it a read, then continue below!
To start out, we recommend the following:
1. Analyze Your Diet
In some cases, hair thinning and loss is caused by a change in diet, often one lacking lean proteins and essential vitamins. Start paying close attention to the foods in your fridge, and take a vitamin daily (the best vitamins for healthy hair are A, B, and C — easy to remember, right?).
2. Stop the Stress
Easier said than done, but stress is one of the main causes of hair loss in men and women alike. Stay positive, exercise, meditate — whatever it takes to take the edge off (as long as it’s healthy!). Check out this article from Huffington Post for specific and proven ways to destress.
3. Avoid the Heat
There’s a reason why your bathroom floor is covered in hair – styling tools like flat irons and straighteners are terrible for your locks, and can not only damage your hair, but pull it out as well. If you can’t avoid these tools altogether, start by using a heat protecting spray before blow drying and styling.
