Some women experience hair loss, so have you ever wondered if that could be prevented with healthy hair care habits? Well… the answer is not all the time. Several things that can cause that are imbalances and genetic causes. Two other possibilities have to do with the environment and problems with the scalp. So, again, that is just one reason by itself why correct and effective hair care is vitally important. Healthy hair follicles are stronger, more resilient, and can hold-up better to environment and internal stressors. So, we’ll offer some solid tips about keeping healthy and strong hair and scalp.
It’s so important to keep the right amount of moisture in your hair. Avoid letting your hair become brittle through improper amounts of moisture. Regular use of a high quality conditioner for your hair can prevent brittleness. But, you should use an herbal rinse if your hair is oily, and then do not use the conditioner. You’ll only weigh your hair down if you use the conditioner on your oily hair. The added weight will then put pressure on the hair follicles, and you don’t want to do that. Ask your stylist which option is best for you.
Hair dye is something that perhaps almost all women have given a shot at least once. Some women become quite addicted to dyeing their own hair. If you choose this route (and most do it as a money saving measure) don’t start by dyeing your roots. You want to do the roots last, in roughly the last ten minutes, maybe fifteen. What you can inadvertantly do is cause your follicles to be filled with dye, and then you could cause inflammation or even an infection. That process can be the beginning of possible hair loss. If you want the best results, have your hair colored by a professional. You’ll pay more, but you can rest assured it will be done right.
Stay away from hairstyles that need too many products to maintain. If your hair requires you to add all kinds of gels and sprays to stay in place, your style is too complex. Ideally, your hair should not take more than five minutes of your attention at a time. Anything that takes longer needs to be re-examined. How long you keep your hair should depend on what kind of hair you have, as well as how your face is shaped. You can’t keep extremely fine hair very long or it tends to look flat. Curlier hair, meanwhile, usually looks better when it’s allowed to grow out a little.
When you find a style that doesn’t take much time or product to keep in place, your hair will be its healthiest.
Hair care seems like such a trivial thing, especially where women’s hair loss is concerned. If your hair begins to thin, you may not always stop and think about your shampoo. Hair loss won’t be stopped with some women, but proper hair care can certainly help a lot in others. It is also the best way to hold off the hair loss for as long as possible. As always, seek professional advice from your doctor if you suspect a possible problem.
