Some types of hair loss can be prevented. While Sure Hair International understands that some cannot, in many cases you can reverse your hair loss using natural means. It all starts with ensuring that you’re healthy and eating the right foods. There are other things, like supplements, that can help as well. If you want to stop your hair loss and go back to having a full, healthy head of hair, then here are some suggestions.
Eat a Well-Balanced Diet
The very first step to reversing your hair loss is by eating a well-balanced diet. You should familiarize yourself with the food pyramid (or the new food plate) and follow it accordingly. You do need to eat as healthy as possible in order to make your hair look nicer since your overall health shows through every aspect of your body. Once you’re eating the right foods (and enough of them, since malnutrition can affect your hair as well), you’ll find that your hair will grow longer and your skin will be clearer.
Take the Right Supplements
There are several supplements that can improve your hair. These include iron, zinc, biotin, and saw palmetto. Iron is important, since anemia and hair loss go hand in hand. However, if you haven’t been diagnosed with anemia, you shouldn’t take them as a separate supplement. Too much iron can be bad for you. It’s okay if iron is taken as part of a multivitamin supplement. Zinc and biotin are two other useful supplements that are proven to help with hair growth. You’ll often find biotin sold separately and marketed as a hair and nails supplement. It can make both of them stronger. With that said, you shouldn’t overdose on them. Follow the instructions on the label. Finally, saw palmetto is another great natural supplement that can help your hair. Although many medical professionals will state that there’s little proof that saw palmetto helps, there isn’t much to completely disprove it either.
Of course, before you take any supplements at all, check with your doctor. You need to be careful, should one or more of them interact with any prescriptions that you’re currently taking or any medical conditions that you have.
Style Your Hair Carefully
Another useful and natural way of stopping hair loss is by styling your hair carefully. Here at Sure Hair International, we understand that many people abuse their hair. It just happens, without them even trying. People forget to use the right hydrating treatments, dye their hair harsh colors, and even continue heat styling it long after the damage has set in. There are ways to reverse this damage, although the most common include cutting your hair short and letting it grow in fully. Things like treatments can help as well. With that said, you’re better off treating your hair nicely, to begin with. Don’t over style it, let it rest on weekends (as in, don’t heat style it), and stop dying it harshly. It’s best to stay within a few shades of your natural color.
