Hair loss is a traumatic event for many people. Whether it is from genetics, hormonal changes, or other causes, losing one’s hair will significantly lower one’s confidence and self-esteem.
Thankfully, there are various strategies that may aid in reducing and treating hair loss. Establishing a proper hair care routine that prioritizes the maintenance of the health and nourishment of your hair is one of the most crucial things you can do.
Here’s everything you need to know about the fundamentals of a hair care routine for hair loss.
1. Use gentle hair care products
Your hair might become damaged and more prone to breakage and hair loss if you use harsh hair care products. Instead, we would recommend using mild and nourishing hair care products that are made to encourage hair growth and maintain the health of your hair.
Specifically, look for shampoos and conditioners that do not contain sulphates, parabens, or other harsh chemicals. These ingredients can potentially damage the hair follicles and deprive your hair of its natural oils. This can lead to hair breakage and loss.
2. Protect your hair from heat
Heat styling tools, like blow dryers, curling irons and hair straighteners can damage your hair by making it brittle and weak. You should use these tools sparingly and protect your hair when you do to avoid hair loss.
In order to reduce damage, apply a heat protectant spray or serum if you must use heated styling equipment. Additionally, since damp hair is more prone to damage, you should avoid using styling tools on your hair when it is wet. Try using a lower heat setting whenever you can as well.
3. Massage your scalp
The general health of your hair may be improved by stimulating hair growth and increasing blood flow to the hair follicles with a scalp massage.
Use your fingertips to gently massage your scalp in circular motions to massage it in the shower. Each time you massage your scalp, try to give it at least five minutes.
4. Protect your hair from environmental damage
Hair loss and damage from the environment can be attributed to pollutants, UV radiation, and harsh weather conditions. It’s crucial to take precautions to reduce your exposure to these elements if you want to protect your hair from them. Wear a hat to shield your hair and scalp from the sun’s damaging rays if you spend a lot of time outside. You may also reduce your exposure to pollution by washing your hair with a clarifying shampoo once a week to help get rid of sebum build-up.
5. Practice stress management
This point might come as a surprise, but did you know that mindfulness is also a vital component of any hair care routine?
Stress is a common contributor to hair loss, so practicing stress management techniques can help keep your hair healthy. This can include practices like meditation, yoga, breathing exercises and more.
Besides these strategies, it is also important to get adequate sleep and engage in regular exercise. Both of these activities help to lower stress levels and improve general well-being, which can benefit the condition of your hair as well.
6. Consider hair loss treatments
If you’re experiencing significant hair loss, you should consider hair loss treatments. There are various treatment options available, including laser therapy and even hair transplant in Singapore.
Hair follicles are moved from one part of the scalp to another during hair transplant surgery. The majority of the time, those with considerable hair loss who have not responded to previous therapies are advised to undergo this surgery.
Another method for treating hair loss is laser therapy. This entails enhancing the health of the hair follicles and stimulating hair growth with low-level lasers.
