What is the Solution to Hair Loss?
Most hair loss is temporary and can be treated. There are a number of reasons for hair loss and it can be a very distressing situation. But the good news is that most hair loss is temporary and can be treated.
The first step is always to identify the cause and then find the best solution.
These are the main causes of hair loss:
- Male Pattern Baldness
- Desalinated Water
- Poor Diet
Is hair loss caused by poor diet?
Hair cells grow quicker than practically any other cells in your body, and so they require a continuous supply of nutrients. But because hair is not an essential body organ, it is low down on your own body's list of priorities and receives its nutrients last. If you are eating a poor diet, your hair is the first to show it.
When it comes to hair growth, there is one mineral that makes a big difference: Iron. Many people have low iron levels due to iron blockers like tea, coffee, chocolate and wine. It is also important to get plenty of Vitamin C to help the absorption of Iron. Include iron-rich foods in your diet, such as raisins, apricots, meat, liver, spinach and watercress. Also eggs - especially the yolk. And oily fish.
Male Pattern Baldness
To a degree, hair loss can be inherited from your genes; this type of hair loss is called "Male Pattern Hair Loss". Our trichologist recommends that the best way to slow down hair loss and promote new growth is to massage your scalp with Permea Plus Hair Repair Massage Oil for a few minutes twice a week before you wash your hair. This stimulates blood flow to the hair follicles. All men, even those in their early twenties, should massage their scalp for two minutes before washing their hair.
Is Your Hair Loss caused by Stress?
Stress causes hair fall. This is because a huge amount of tension is stored in the scalp which restricts vital blood and nutrient flow to the hair roots. To ease this, try regular scalp massage for a few minutes prior to washing your hair. This has very good results and you will find that after a few weeks your scalp is less tight and much more flexible. This is a good sign as the follicles remain open and you will soon start to feel healthy, strong new growth near the scalp.
The problem with desalinated water is that it contains minerals that can damage the hair, causing it to break off. So what is often perceived as hair fall is in fact hair damage. Fortunately the hair will grow back again. Permea Plus Anti-Sal Shampoo is formulated to stop minerals in desalinated water drying and damaging your hair.
To check if your hair fall is caused by breakage, look at the hair strand under a magnifying glass: if there is no hair bulb or root, it is hair breakage, probably caused by desalinated water.
