We are as attached to our head’s hair as it (initially) is to us. When we start losing it, we really start, uh, losing it–and we want it back. Our hair, that is. As far back as Ancient Egypt, people have sought ways to stem hair loss and stimulate hair growth and use a  toupee to cure my hair loss.. While the Egyptians employed a cocktail of iron oxide, red lead, onions, alabaster, animal fats and honey, and today we still use some of those remedies, in one form or another. Men’s hair loss in particular has created a billion-dollar industry, with putative cures ranging from chemically laced topical treatments and drugs to hair transplants and–ugh–wigs. Yet hair-loss science is imperfect, uncertain and riddled with misinformation that allows companies to sell solutions that may or may not work.

Our heads have about 120,000-150,000 strands of hair, and it’s normal for both men and women to lose fifty to a hundred daily. Any more than that and eventually we start to feel the anxiety of impending baldness.

We lose hair for several reasons. Chiefly, aging weakens hair and makes it more brittle, and also decreases hormone production and nutrient absorption, thus slowing hair growth. Other reasons include nutritional deficiencies, genetics, pattern baldness, illness and autoimmune disorders, stress and trauma. Even air and water pollutants and sunlight’s phototoxic aging effects may facilitate alopecia.

While there’s no way to completely stop natural hair loss due to ageing and genetic factors, we can certainly control how fast we lose it, and possibly reverse abnormal loss and stimulate growth, by taking certain steps such as those below.

9 Natural Ways to Prevent Hair Loss

1. Change Your Diet

There are natural, non-chemical ways to prevent hair loss, with the strongest measure being a healthy, balanced diet. One consequence of the typical North American high-fat, high-protein, high-salt diet is an acidic environment in the body, which can lead to premature hair loss.

Iron-rich foods like lean red meats and dark green veggies contribute to ferritin levels sufficient to increase the hair’s growth cycle, meaning it will grow for a greater period of time. Iron also delivers oxygen to hair follicles, which further incites growth.

Since hair is made mostly of protein, and protein deficiency causes hair loss, it stands to reason that adding protein to your diet–plentiful in animal products and dairy–will stimulate growth.  But paradoxically, too much protein may result in baldness. A Goldilocks situation seems to exist in terms of protein and hair growth.

Another food ingredient crucial to hair health is omega-3 fatty acids, which facilitate the production and action of hormones and oily lubricants that lead to healthy scalp and follicles and bouncy, shiny hair. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish, shellfish, nuts and seeds and their oils.

Healthy hair also requires us to eat our vitamins. A and B-complex vitamins promote vibrant, shiny hair; B12 can neutralise premature hair loss; C and Zinc help strengthen hair, biotin helps avoid hair loss and premature greying; D facilitates healthy follicular growth; E helps maintain a healthy, moisturised scalp.

The bottom line? Eating whole foods such as organic eggs, lentils, spinach, red meat, pumpkin seeds and salmon is best, including plenty of fruits and vegetables, vitamins and minerals. Most vegetable skins are rich in silica, which  contributes to hair strength.

2. Drink Certain Teas and Infusions

Green tea, saw palmetto and stinging nettle tea contain ingredients that inhibit the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a compound that’s linked to thinning hair and pattern baldness; an extract of the saw palmetto plant may have a similar effect on testosterone. These products are prime weapons in the battle against some forms of alopecia. Swapping coffee for green, nettle or saw palmetto tea may not give you a morning kick, but it could wake your hair follicles up! Can’t drink that much tea? You can actually buy the concentrated ingredients of these teas in pill form to help prevent hair loss.

3. Detox Now

Behavioural strategies can also mitigate hair loss, starting with the elimination of three common vices: alcohol, tobacco and coffee. Excess booze intake leads to hair loss through dehydration–which makes hair dry and brittle (one quarter of a hair strand is composed of water)–and also by dramatically depleting the body’s iron and zinc levels; caffeine in large amounts similarly affects the body. Cigarette smoke, meanwhile, contains toxins that accelerate hair loss as well as  premature greying. What’s not known is whether these tobacco toxins directly affect the scalp or simply accelerate the ageing process; what is known is that quitting mitigates the problems.

4. Chill Out

When we say some experience was so rough, we ‘lost hair’ over it, it could well be the case–stress is another factor in hair loss, specifically of a condition called telogen effluvium. Meditation and exercise are two ways to relieve stress and create a better hormonal balance, thereby helping to prevent alopecia. Massage also may be beneficial; both of the body, and of the scalp. For the latter, the addition of oils such as almond or coconut make the massage more pleasant, but also infuse the scalp with essential vitamins and minerals.  Finally, don’t be rough on your mane–instead of rubbing your hair dry with a towel every day, which can damage delicate follicles, air-dry it.

Good for the spirit, good for the hair!

5. Don’t Fake It

Finally, despite what fancy hairdressers may tell you, using extensions and weaves or wearing tight wigs or hairpieces daily may damage hair follicles  by stressing their anchor to the scalp. Sure, they may provide some temporary volume, but constantly wearing hair pieces is  another hair-loss accelerator. Believe me: I know girls who have tried all kinds of hair extensions, and inevitably they end up with loads of hair being pulled out when they’re applied and removed. Also be careful with hair straighteners, tight pony tails, blow driers, harsh chemical hair dyes and heated rollers, all of which can further damage delicate hair and cause it to break off. Check out some natural hair dyes here.

6.  What Supp?

While a proper diet rich in whole organic foods is the best conduit for nutrients to the body, if you find you just don’t have the time to plan such meals, then taking supplements may help. Biotin, kelp,    saw palmetto  based products are well known to work to help hair growth, and ferritin, zinc, iron, B vitamins and vitamin D are all essential for your body to make healthy hair. Sure, you will need to  wait at least three months to see any results – but they sure won’t do any harm!.

7. Pooh Pooh the ‘Poo

Most commercial shampoos contain sodium laurel or sodium laureth sulphate (SLS). Both of these detergent chemicals are harsh on hair, and  SLS also corrodes hair follicles and impairs their ability to grow hair. One study showed that if you use pure SLS on your scalp it will actually cause hair to fall out! Some trichologists (hair specialists) believe that increasing use of SLS and the salt that is added to it to make it foam is leading more women to lose their hair (or to have it thin out) than ever before.

Not to worry: Eluxe has recommended some fantastic, gentle shampoos with all natural ingredients. If you can’t find those locally, head down to your local health food shop or Whole Foods shop and choose a shampoo from there.

8. Light Therapy

Red light therapy has been proven to stop hair from shedding and increase hair growth in some cases. While the ‘laser comb’ is perhaps the most popular device for those with hair loss, any LED red light instrument will do. These devices all use light wavelengths which, when applied directly to the scalp, can increase collagen and elastin production, stimulate hair growth, reduce the inflammation that may be causing hair to shed, and increase circulation to the scalp. Lightstim is one popular brand that is said to work not only for helping hair loss, but for getting rid of wrinkles and pigmentation spots on the skin, too.

9. Try a Designated Supplement

If topping up your vitamin intake isn’t enough, designated anti-hair loss supplements can help, especially if you’re losing hair due to a too much DHT (a male hormone that causes Androgenic Alopecia) or a lack of ferritin, protein, iron, biotin or other trace elements that are essential for healthy hair growth. There are several on the market, such as Viviscal, which many celebs (have been paid to) endorse, HairAnew,  which always gets good reviews from users,  NutraFol, which has special formulas for both men and women,  Noukrin (which also claims to help skin and nails), and  Florisene (rich in B12 and iron). Most anti-hair loss/pro-hair growth supplements are likely to contain marine collagen of some kind, so aren’t too vegan friendly. But NutraFol has four  patented clinically proven ingredients to combat the underlying causes of hair loss, thinning hair and declining hair health, and claims to contain bio-actives that will  minimize hair shedding and hair loss due to stress and DHT. Even if you don’t shed much hair,  designated hair supplements like these have a  rich content of A, C, D, and Zinc, as well as biotin, selenium and other anti-ageing herbs that can offset  the damaging effects of stress, nutritional deficiencies, and act as a  preventative part of your anti-aging strategy.

10. Try a Dermaroller

In case you’re not familiar with it, a  dermaroller is a simple device that is used to make tiny pin pricks in the skin. The pricks penetrate into the dermal layer, just deep enough to stimulate  new cell production  and boost circulation, but without causing damage and without causing pain. The process is  also known as ‘microneedling’. The dermaroller has been used as a beauty device for decades to renew the youthfulness of skin but stimulating collagen, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

In a similar way that the derma roller is used to stimulate collagen production on the facial skin, it can also be used to increase cell production and increase blood circulation around the scalp, which in turn will help with new hair growth.

    I have struggled with my hair for a long time now. I am quickly approaching my 30s and I have bad hair quality. Recently, I have also noticed that my hair has stopped growing as it used to. A few years ago I went to the salon on a monthly basis. Now, it takes me almost two months before I even need to cut my hair! I am desperate and I really need help right now. Hair is one of the most important parts of a woman and I don’t want to give up on this one. I went to the doctors but they didn’t found anything wrong with me. The exams I took showed that I am healthy and there’s no reason for this to even happen to me. Please, I really need hair advice urgently!

      Hi Wendy! Are you eating enough protein? Getting enough B vitamins? Perhaps a hair supplement can help? Even if you are healthy, your hormones may be out of balance, or you may be low in ferritin or iron.

    Thanks,
    For updating us and sharing a useful information with us .Here i am going to add more some tips in that regard .

    Hair loss happens for many different reasons, and not all of them are related to aging. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways you can prevent excessive hair loss without resorting to expensive products and prescription
    1
    Use essential oils combined with a scalp massage. Massage promotes good circulation in the scalp and increases blood flow to your follicles. Gently massage your scalp daily by hand for a couple of minutes. To enhance the message, use a few drops of lavender, rosemary, thyme, peppermint, or cedarwood essential oil in an almond, coconut, jojoba, grapeseed, or sesame oil base on your scalp.[1]
    While many claims to have success with this treatment, there currently is no clear scientific evidence of its effectiveness.
    2
    Use egg oil (eyova). While it isn’t scientifically proven to help, many think that egg oil can prevent hair loss. It may also be able to help stop graying, treat dandruff, and moisturize your hair. Massage egg oil into the scalp and leave on overnight.
    Shampoo off in the morning with a sulfate-free shampoo that’s mild and gentle. Use shampoo only once as repetition removes the natural lipids of hair, making it dry and brittle.
    People typically claim to see results when they use egg oil 2-3 times a week for at least 12 weeks. However, you may need to use it less frequently if you have protein-sensitive hair.
    Egg oil (eyova) is a convenient alternative to egg yolk masks and does not smell like raw egg yolks. There is no risk of salmonella, which could give you an infection.
    You can make egg oil at home, see How to Make Egg Oil at Home or buy it online.
    If making your own egg oil, you are at risk for contamination of salmonella. Be sure to wash your hands and work space thoroughly.
    3
    Restore moisture through hot oil treatments. When applied to the hair, hot oil can moisturize and also stimulate growth. You can use any natural oil including safflower and canola or olive oil.
    Heat the oil up so it is warm, but not too hot. The ideal temperature is not exceeding 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). Then, massage the oil into your scalp.
    Put on a shower cap for about 30 minutes. When the time is up, shampoo out the oil.
    Mayonnaise may also work well as a conditioner. Slather your hair with a generous dollop, put on a shower cap for up to an hour, and then rinse it out.
    4
    Rub rangoli henna into your hair. While not scientifically proven to work, many use rangoli henna for health and hair strength.This is a green powder that seals the hair cuticle, which strengthens the hair shaft at the root.[5]
    Henna is considered safe on the skin and hair for most people, but some have reactions to it. If you have a reaction, stop using it and consult your healthcare provider if necessary.
    Don’t use darker colored hennas, as these are usually unnatural and contain a chemical called p-phenylenediamin
    5
    Rub green tea into your hair. Green tea hasn’t yet been scientifically proven to effectively treat hair loss, but some studies have been done and the results suggest that it may be a promising treatment option. Green tea contains antioxidants, which may prevent hair loss and also help hair growth.[6]
    Brew 2 bags of green tea in 1 cup of water. Let the tea cool slightly, and then apply it to your hair.
    Leave the tea on for 1 hour. Then, rinse your hair thoroughly.

These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

    You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

    In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

    Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

    In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

    We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

    We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
