How to prevent hair loss? - Cosmetic World

One of the most worrying things that can happen to your head is to see hair thinning. Firstly you will search "How to prevent hair loss?". One of the first signs of excessive hair loss is when you start to see more hair on your brush or in the bathroom. This might be a signal of many things, but it's never pleasant. In many cases, it may be temporary or due to a hormonal imbalance. Fortunately, there are various products and treatments that can restore some of the lost hair or stimulate hair growth.

What can cause hair loss

Hair loss can be caused by genes (alopecia areata), stress, hormonal imbalance, harmful hair products, dermatological problem, disease, or treatment. The causes are many and varied. That's why it is often difficult to determine what has caused hair loss. There are other conditions that can also result in hair loss like hair pulling disorder, female and male pattern baldness, scalp infections, and androgenetic alopecia. But the most common causes of hair shedding are:

  • Stress (any kind)
  • Medical conditions (Such as anemia)
  • Chemotherapy (cancer treatment)
  • Hormonal imbalance (Pregnancy)
  • Genes (alopecia areata)
  • Tight hairstyles
  • Medications or nutritional supplements
  • Smoking

    Hair loss in men

    If you're a man, think about whether you have any direct male relatives who suffer from hair loss. For example, if there are many men in your family who suffer from hair loss, it's likely that you lose hair too. That's because hair loss is often caused by a genetic burden. In addition, risk factors such as stress or poor health can increase the rate of hair loss many times.

    It's well known that men are more likely to lose hair than women. Over 80% of men suffer from hair loss in old age. In comparison, it is 50% (or nearly 30% less) in women.

    If you lose hair because of your genes, the process is irreversible (at least with medication and supplements). The best practice is to reduce the factors that cause it and thus slow down the process. It's easy to say things like "Reduce stress", but everyone knows it's not that easy in practice. However, try to practice activities that calm your body. Try meditation, more frequent gatherings with nice people, practicing recreational sports with less stress, hiking, yoga, etc.

    Another popular method to reduce hair loss is the use of "Triphasic Progressive" or "Propecia". While Propecia is an oral medication that requires a prescription from a doctor, Triphasic Progressive is an extremely effective therapeutic product (no prescription) that is applied directly to the hair and promises visible results in three months.

    If your hair loss is irreversible, many doctors would also advise you to opt for a hair transplant. Although this procedure is really expensive, it's 100% effective, and it will certainly restore your self-confidence. Of course, it is the most complex and requires time until the hair grows back.

    Hair loss in women

    As mentioned before, women are less likely to suffer from hair loss, but they are no exception. About half of women experience it before the age of 79. Aging, genetic burden, and hormonal imbalance are among the major causes of hair loss in women.

    Diseases such as Thyroid disease can also cause hair loss in women. There is also female pattern hair loss (also known as female pattern baldness). This condition runs in the family, and it's related to your genes.

    Very often at the onset of menopause, women begin to experience hair loss. However, this can be easily regulated with hormone therapy. Moreover, this therapy helps to prevent hair loss and other symptoms of menopause. Therapy is not expensive and is often covered by insurance.

    How to improve hair health?

    There are certainly a few things that you can do in order to have healthy hair. Keeping your hair healthy is really important if you want to reduce the risk of hair loss. Make sure everything that touches your hair is safe, including all kinds of hair cosmetics, and dye. Lots of products can cause hair damage, that's why you have to be cautious. So without further ado let's see the best practices to avoid losing hair.

    How to improve hair health - Women doing cosmetic routines in bathroom

    Use brushes made from natural materials

    Using brushes and combs made from natural materials is not as damaging to the hair. The reason for this is the hardness of the brush bristles. Natural materials are softer than factory (plastic) ones. Moreover, it is also better to use a wide tooth comb.

    Don't brush your hair when it's wet

    Wet hair is often flattened which can cause hair to snap off. Avoid brushing when it's wet. Instead wait for it to dry on its own and then comb it lightly with a wide tooth comb.

    Avoid flat or curling irons and hair dryers

    There's not much to comment on in this regard. It's clear that heat-treating damages the hair. The more you treat your hair with accessories like flat iron, curling iron, or hair dryer, the drier and frizzier it will look. This heat may cause you "dry hair" which will lead to excessive shedding.

    Adapt your diet to prevent hair loss

    Food is very important for hair health. There are many diets that help for hair loss, but the Keto Diet is one of the most common. If you think the diet is too strict, you can also try the Mediterranean Diet, which allows for more menu variety but still promises healthy hair at the end of the day. You can also try other diets, just make sure that you pick a diet rich in proteins, vegetables, fruits, oils, and nutrients.

    Use a nourishing shampoo

    Nourishing shampoos like "NISIM's normal to oily hair" can help nourish your hair and revive it. The shampoo has been specially formulated to maximize a clean and nutrient-rich environment for natural hair growth. The results can be noticed within 1 week. I would personally recommend you apply the standardized scalp massage which results in increased hair thickness and prevents hair loss. NISIM also keeps the scalp healthy and clean.

    Use hair dyes with natural ingredients

    Hair dyes with natural ingredients are your best friend when it comes to dyeing and nourishing your hair at the same time. Brands like Tocco Magico have a line of Multicomplex hair dyes that are specially formulated to boost the hair follicle thanks to their natural ingredients. The best part is that the products are dyeing your hair and increasing hair growth at the same time.

    Take vitamins and supplements

    It's important to have a balanced level of vitamins in your body. Vitamins A B C D E zinc and iron can affect your hair growth. They are not only good for the health of your hair, but also for your overall health.

    Use therapeutic products

    Therapeutic products help for improving your hair and scalp health. Popular ones are NIOXIN and Triphasic Progressive they both increase blood flow to the hair follicles. The products are increasing hair growth thanks to complex ingredients including essential oils. Triphasic progressive also contains pumpkin seed oil. This oil is well known for treating hair loss.

    Minimize stress to prevent hair loss

    As I already said "It's easy to say", but stress is one of the most common reasons for hair loss. And in cases when you are genetically burdened, it can cause sudden hair loss. The best way to slow hair loss is to practice yoga, go hiking and do everything possible to reduce stress and respectively prevent further hair loss.

    How to prevent hair loss with supplements?

      Medical treatment for hair loss

      Medical treatments are three main types. The first type is non-invasive and uses a laser, the other is called PRP, while the last treatment is hair transplant. Transplantion is invasive, and it's including surgical intervention.

      Laser therapy

      This is a therapy that can be done both at home if you purchase the laser device, which is very expensive, and in a clinic with a laser device. Laser therapy has its advantages and disadvantages. Examples of disadvantages are that it is expensive, time-consuming, and may not be as effective on people with severe hair loss. On the other hand, the pros are that it is non-invasive, and there are no pain or side effects.

      PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)

      PRP is an innovative treatment for hair loss or thinning caused by androgenic alopecia. It helps to stop the balding process as well as to strengthen the damaged hair. The PRP treatment method is used in all hair transplant procedures to achieve optimal results. PRP treatment aids post-operative recovery as well as has a beneficial effect on hair growth and thickening after hair transplant surgeries.

      Hair transplantation

      This is the most proven to be an effective procedure for people with advanced-stage hair loss. Hair transplantation is divided into two main types FUT and FUE. The difference is mainly that the hair follicles are extracted differently. For this reason, the FUE procedure also leaves no scars, whereas, in FUT, these can be seen in the form of a line. Which one is suitable for the specific case is a topic that should be discussed with the doctor beforehand.

      Can our hair grow back?

      Hair can regrow in certain cases. There are two types of hair loss - temporary hair loss and permanent hair loss. When it comes to genes (alopecia areata), hair loss cannot be reverted. Instead, it can only be corrected with hair transplant surgery. If it's caused by conditions like nutrient deficiency or a compromised immune system it can be corrected with proper diet, vitamin intake, hair care, and good habits to maintain hair health.

      Best selling products for hair growth

      Although lots of products promote hair growth, it's hard to find the right one. Cosmetic World provides all kind of hair loss treatment products that will help if you have fragile hair or hair loss occurs. All of them will improve hair density and prevent hair loss.
