It turns out that hair loss treatment is never an easy task, but you can prevent hair loss by simply taking a good care of your health. And, as they say, prevention is better than cure. And this is really the case.

Metabolic disease and vitamin deficiency immediately take their toll on hair. That is why, in order to prevent hair loss, it is of vital importance to get rid of these two troubles. It is proved, that people who eat more greens, fruit and vegetables does not only suffer from hair loss, but also don’t face the problem of gray hair for a longer time. So, proper nutrition is the basis not only for a good general health condition, but also for the beauty of hair.

Don’t forget that not only damaged and weakened hair needs good care all the time. Without proper care even healthy hair can easily become damaged and weak. Thus, the use of various nutrient masks, balms, lotions will help you preserve its natural beauty and strength.

You can also prevent hair loss with natural remedies, for example, with rubbing and rising. If your hair is too greasy, add a few drops of any essential oil to water or decoction. This mixture will perfectly dissolve grease and unclog the pores of the scalp, allowing them to get enough oxygen. Sea-salt and clay help to scrub off dead cells and improve blood circulation.

It is also recommended to make regular massage of the scalp with a smooth hairbrush. The best brush is a wooden one. Scalp massage also restores normal blood circulation.

Artificial drying and the use of even the best and very nutritious means for hair styling gradually lead to the sad situation when your hair start lose its strength and color. Hair covered under a thick layer of lacquer and styling mousse doesn’t receive enough oxygen. It gets dry and weakened and, eventually, falls out.

To sum it up, the more natural your hair care is, the better the result are. Moreover, there’s nothing better than natural beauty.

Our hair is an excellent indicator of the state of our health, as it is immediately responds to all internal and external changes of our body. Hair loss is one of such responds. And that is why there are more causes of hair loss than we can possibly imagine.

Most often hair loss is caused by age-related changes and weakening of the body, to which we all are exposed sooner or later. For example, women begin to lose hair rapidly after birth of a child and during menopause. In this case, hair loss results from hormonal imbalance.

Hair loss may simply be a seasonal condition. In spring we don’t get enough vitamins and it tells primarily on our hair. Our metabolism is being disturbed and it can make our scalp and hair dry, as well as loss of certain amount of hair also becomes inevitable. But in winter hair loss is often the result of static electricity and lack of oxygen. We keep our hair under the hat, our scalp sweats, skin pores get clogged by excessive grease. By the way, hair coloring, perm and the use of hair styling appliances and devices have even worse effect leading to excessive hair loss.

Poor ecological situation and environment is one more common reason why people start loosing their hair. Forget about washing your hair with melted snow or rain water (what was quite popular in old times), as it contains so many toxins and harmful substances that it can cause significant irritation of the head-skin with subsequent and rapid loss of hair.

Stress and emotional strains and upsets also have a baneful influence on the state of health of your hair. Each stress is accompanied with surge of certain hormones and it instantly affects the growth of hair follicles and their nourishment.

Hair loss can also result from the use of certain drugs and medical procedures. And the more often you resort to them, the more difficult it is to stop hair loss: you can only slightly slow it down, but not eliminate it completely.

But in other cases hair loss can be either prevented or completely stopped with appropriate treatment or by hair transplantation. Never hesitate to discuss the problem with a hair loss specialist, as it’s very important to find the real cause first.
