With so many chic hairstyles to try out these days, nothing dampens the excitement more than hair loss. Scientific fact claims that an average of 60-100 strands of hair lost per day is nothing short of normal. But if you see clumps of hair clogging your bathroom drain after every hair wash, or clinging to your brush like dried-up weeds after brushing, you need not start counting strands to know that immediate action is called for.
There is no arguing the point that hair loss prevention would always prove far more valuable than any amount of hair loss tonic or cure available. You don’t have to wait to see a doctor before taking action to keep your crowning glory out of hair loss’s way, though. Right here, right now, you can start taking charge with these tips.
Eight or more glasses of water goes a long way where maintaining good health is concerned—and the benefits extend as far as the tips of your crowning glory. To best maximize your hair’s gains, drink 10-14 glasses of distilled or filtered water daily at a minimum of 14 ounces each. Water washes away toxins including those that harm your hair.
Limit your caffeine intake.
Being a diuretic, caffeine can promote dehydration. It prompts your body to lose more water than it consumes through urination. Dehydration, in turn, does not only wreak havoc to your overall health but it also causes hair loss. Besides cutting down on the caffeine, you may want to try healthier beverage replacements like fresh fruit juices or plain distilled/filtered water.
Never compromise the importance of getting sound sleep.
The advised eight hours or more of daily shuteye benefits your overall health and your hair, too. Like water, it eliminates toxins from your body but in a differentiated way. By giving your body the sufficient amount of sleep it needs, you automatically prevent hair loss via controlling hair fall.
Know your hair products well.
The chemicals that go into your hair products have a lot to say about your hair’s good health. The added perks—scents, shine boosters, etc., may improve your hair’s looks in some ways, but they can also cause damage if you’re not careful. Know what works best for your hair by asking experts before trying out any specialized hair products. Using good hair care products that answer your specific hair needs is a crucial step towards hair loss prevention.
