Your hair is made up of a protein called ‘keratin’ so it is logical to eat a good amount of protein to have healthy and strong hair. It’s not necessary to eat meat and fish for beautiful hair.
Even vegans can have silky, long and luscious hair but what’s important is having good knowledge about hair care and required a balanced diet. So, eat a good amount of nuts & seeds and stop worrying.
Just follow these instructions and say “goodbye to hair fall”. Here are some ways of describing how to stop hair loss and regrow hair naturally.
How can hair fall be stopped?
Here, we present you some of the best and most effective ways to stop hair fall:
Avoid using any harsh chemical products on your hair and start using more mild and natural products (natural shampoos, conditioners, and serums).
Good and nutritious food helps to prevent hair loss. What to eat to reduce hair fall:
- Spinach- It is a great source of iron and thus keeps hair strong and also prevents breakage. Its deficiency can impact blood supply to roots resulting in hair loss.
- Eggs- They contain biotin which is good for hair strength and growth.
- Almonds- They are high in vitamin E and biotin and helps reduce breakage.
AVOID SHAMPOOING DAILY
Shampooing your hair daily washes away the moisture and natural oils from your hair leaving your hair dry and more prone to breakage and hair fall.
Always use lighter products (Serums /hair crèmes) for protecting your hair from the city pollution.
Smoking weakens your roots making your hair more prone to breakage and triggers hair fall. Smoking reduces blood flow in the body and hair falls out before the actual shedding stage.
SAY NO TO STRESS
Stress is one of the main reasons for hair fall. It is mostly overlooked by people which later on results in serious issues.
Hair loss stress can be physical when you’re having any illness/infection or can be mental stress which is related to your mindset.
Are you sleep-deprived? Improper sleep can lead to hormonal imbalance in your body leading to massive hair fall. Therefore, take good 7-8 hours of sleep daily.
It is said that wet hair is like a silk blouse that is very sensitive and can stretch easily making your hair prone to breakage. After taking a shower, do the following:
- Cover your hair with a cotton T-shirt as it absorbs excess water from the hair.
- Dry your hair up to 80% before blow-drying.
- Comb your hair when completely dry.
- If you’re having frizzy hair, apply the required amount of livon serum on wet hair.
It is important to choose the right comb which suits your hair type.
- Always use a wide-toothed comb to brush and detangle your hair.
- Cheap nylon combs not only damage your scalp skin but it also causes hair breakage due to friction and generates static electricity in the hair.
- Do not let others use your brushes and combs as it can transmit head lice, fungal infections, dandruff, and bacterial infection from one person to another.
AVOID TIGHT HAIRSTYLES
There are certain hairstyles that may look good on you but keeping them for a longer duration may cause damage to your hair.
So, don’t tie your hair very tight as it pulls your hair and weakens them from the root. Thus, it results in untimely shedding of the hair strands.
Oiling to prevent hair fall
Oiling has been a hair remedy for centuries. In ancient times, this method was used to improve hair texture in an inexpensive way. Women from different countries oil their hair differently using different techniques.
Oiling not only improves blood circulation but also reduces excessive hair loss, split ends, frizziness, dullness, dandruff and thinning of the hair. Hair oiling is relaxing and therapeutic which makes hair very shiny and strong. Therefore, you should at least oil your hair twice a week.
- It is recommended to massage in the right way so that it promotes hair growth by providing essential nutrients to the hair follicles.
- Regular oiling works upon the scalp by nourishing the roots which directly allows nutrients and fatty acids to get into the roots and encourages perfect breeding ground for new hair growth.
- It also prevents damage caused by hair coloring or heat styling.
- Always use an applicator and massage using your fingertips so that oil is evenly spread upon the scalp and the tips.
