Tried and Tested Tips to Control Hair Fall

Get To The Root Of The Problem

Hair Restoration Treatment

While the average person sheds 50 to 100 strands of hair per day, many individuals experience accelerated hair fall due to various factors. The loss of hair can be devastating, because hair is often closely tied to our appearance and can have a tremendous impact on our self-esteem. Although in most cases the causes of thinning hair and premature balding are genetics and hormones, other factors such as stress, medication, improper diet, and the excessive use of chemicals can also contribute to hair loss. Luckily, in some cases, hair loss can be prevented or managed using the following tips.

The first tip is to get to the root of the problem by determining the cause of your hair loss. Identify the area(s) where hair loss is most prominent and speak to a physician to rule out any underlying medical issues. Thinning hair can be a result of deficiency of red blood cells, sudden loss of blood, low iron levels, or an unhealthy or unbalanced diet. It may also be a result of thyroid disorder or a scalp infection. Your doctor can help you determine the source of a sudden change in hair loss and provide you with treatment options.

Hair Care

For A Better Solution

While it is a myth that washing or brushing your hair too frequently causes hair loss, you can prevent excessive shedding by taking precautions when styling and managing your hair. Replacing your brush with a wide-toothed comb will help you detangle your locks without the risk of breaking or pulling your strands. Ensure that you clean your comb regularly. If possible, avoid the use of heat products such as hair dryers or curling irons. Gently remove excess water from your hair with a towel and allow it to air dry. Selecting high-quality products will also help prevent hair loss and keep your scalp clean, since clogged follicles can cause hair fall. Choose shampoos that are free of sulfates, silicone, and parabens to ensure that you are not cleaning your hair with harsh chemicals that cause more harm than good.

Diet And Exercise

Along with their numerous other benefits, a proper diet and consistent exercise routine helps keep your hair healthy, preventing avoidable hair fall, because hair loss is frequently a result of a vitamin or mineral deficiency. It is important to select foods rich in vitamins A, B, C, and E, iron, zinc, as well as omega-3 fatty acids and proteins. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep hydrated and help remove harmful toxins from the body. Since stress is often a contributing factor in hair fall, regular physical activity can do wonders for your scalp and improve overall circulation.

While the above tips can be used for people who suffer from hair loss due to stress, medications, hair care, or vitamin deficiencies, people who are genetically predisposed to balding will need to see a hair transplant specialist who is more focused on hair restoration treatment. If you suffer from inherited hair loss, contact Dr. Cory Torgerson at the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic for a consultation to see how we can help you with the restoration of your hair and confidence.
