8 Incredible Tips for Hair Loss Prevention for Women
Author Maxim Tourou / Category Architecture / Published: Apr-05-2018
One of the most upsetting cosmetic challenges for women is the loss of hair. Our hair is our crowning glory and we want to keep the shine, strength, and luster of our hair as we age. While it is socially acceptable for men to have a balding scalp, the same is not true for women. On average, we lose about 50 to 100 strands of hair per day. So some loss is normal. But if you’re noticing an increase of hair strands in your brush or on your pillow, you might be experiencing an abnormal loss of hair. Luckily, this is usually a cosmetic problem and not due to an underlying medical issue. And there is help!
About 40% of women will experience some form of hair loss, especially after menopause. Fortunately, women rarely become fully bald as men do. But thinning hair can be distressing. You might also notice a lack of shine or weak hair that seems to break easily. So what can you do? Follow these tips below. Not only will they help you to prevent hair loss, but they may even help you to regrow some of the hair you have already lost.
1. Watch Your Diet
Yes! Food plays a huge part in our overall health, including the health of our hair. Make sure your diet is full of vitamins and minerals like the ones below. You may want to try Revita Anti Hair Loss Tablets to supplement your diet. These are designed to stimulate hair growth, prevent hair loss, and promote hair growth. You will want to take them for at least three to six months for best results.
- Vitamin A - Vitamin A is essential for the growth of all cells, including those of your hair. In addition, it helps the glands of your skin make sebum. Sebum is an oily substance that will moisturize the scalp which leads to healthier hair. A lack of vitamin A has also been shown to cause hair loss. But don’t have too much as you can also lose hair from an excessive amount of vitamin A in your diet.
- B Vitamins - Biotin is a B vitamin and has been proven to help hair growth. B12 is found only in animal products so if you’re a vegan or vegetarian, you may want to take a supplement. Other B vitamins help formulate red blood cells. This is important because red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to your scalp and hair follicles.
- Vitamin C - Vitamin C is an antioxidant that will prevent the growth of free radicals. Free radical damage can inhibit hair growth and cause hair to age. It also helps the body produce collagen which is important for healthy hair. In addition, it will help the body absorb iron. Iron is a mineral and is necessary for hair growth.
- Vitamin D - Research has shown that vitamin D may help create new hair follicles. Also, a vitamin D deficiency is linked to alopecia, the medical term for hair loss.
- Vitamin E - This is similar to vitamin C in that it is an antioxidant which will help hair heal from oxidative free radical damage.
- Zinc - A lack of this mineral is a common cause of hair loss. Zinc is highly important for healthy hair and hair growth.
- Iron - Iron helps red blood cells carry oxygen to all parts of our body, including our hair. An iron deficiency, anemia, is also a cause of hair loss.
- Protein - Since your hair is made mostly of protein, you need it for a healthy head of hair.
2. Think About Your Hairstyle.
Do you commonly wear hairstyles that pull on your hair? Pony tails, braids, and cornrows can all pull and cause loss at the hairline. These are delicate strands of hair and a constant tight pull will contribute to hair loss. Try for looser pony tails and use elastic bands without the metal clasp that can catch on your hair and pull it out when you remove it.
3. Give Yourself a Great Scalp Massage.
When washing your hair, take the time to pamper yourself with a little scalp massage. Use firm pressure and use your fingertips to create a circular motion all over your head. This has been shown to increase blood flow to the scalp. And not only that, it feels really good too.

6. Reduce Your use of Heated Hair Styling Stools.
Crimpers, straighteners, curling irons; all heated styling tools are bad for your hair. High heat will cause the bonds within the hair strands to fracture. This will lead to hair strands that break and fall out. You don’t have to give your styling tools away, just use them sparingly and make sure you’re not holding them in one place for too long, no more than ten seconds. Also, try and let your freshly washed hair dry naturally some times instead of using your high heat hair dryer. You can also try heat protecting sprays that will help protect your hair when you do use these hair styling implements.
7. Use Chemical Treatments Sparingly.
Chemical treatments can be just as damaging as heat for your hair. They can damage the hair shaft which will lead to weak hair and hair that falls out. If you regularly use chemicals to straighten, bleach, or lighten your hair, be wary. But, not to worry. These treatments for us women are many times inevitable, so, DS Laboratories has a perfect in-home solution in Nix Fix.

8. Try Essential Oils.

- Lavender oil - Can speed up hair growth and has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties to improve scalp health.
- Peppermint oil - Its cold, tingly feel means that it is increasing circulation to the area.
