Ways to Prevent Hair Loss

Your hair is your crowning glory, with these helpful tips we can help prevent hair loss. 

Chemical processing – Let’s be honest, how often do we go to the salon to put harmful chemicals in our hair? Chemical treatments, such as straightening, lightening, and bleaching actually weakens your hair shaft and makes it more susceptible to damage and hair loss. If you are already experiencing hair loss, try to stay as natural as you can to your hair’s color and texture. Allow time in between appointments to let things chemically settle. If you continue chemical processing make sure you are using a good deep conditioning treatment weekly to help your hair heal. 

Topical medication – By using over-the-counter agents that help to stimulate the hair follicles and promote regrowth, will help with preventing or treating hair loss. The active ingredient in Rogaine is Minoxidil. These stimulants usually take up to 6 months to start seeing results. Using other products that are formulated or designed for hair loss prevention will help in the meantime. 

Essential oils – If you are not already giving yourself a scalp massage, start now. In the shower is a perfect time to massage the scalp and hair follicles when you shampoo your hair. Adding certain essential oils like carrot seed, cypress, lavender, or rosemary could help due to the regenerating properties and when massaged multiple times a week, it should help the scalp and follicles.
