Before hitting out on how to prevent hair loss for women, it may be prudent to know what causes hair loss in women and then take appropriate measures against it.
Hair loss in women, to be precise, can be caused due to several factors that include health condition, nutrients and vitamin deficiency, excessive estrogen production triggering excessive growth of DHT hormone and unhealthy lifestyle that include lack of adequate sleep.
Let us consider the health scenario first which includes problems in the gastrointestinal tract as well as deficiency in stomach acids which can be cured through proper dieting and medication about which we are coming later. Certain disease conditions such as anaemia are also considered to cause hair loss in women.
This may be prevented by including foods that are rich in iron in the person’s daily diet. Iron may be acquired from foods that include liver, eggs, dark green vegetables, whole grain cereals and dates. So, by consuming these foods hair loss for women can be suitably prevented.
Hair loss in women can also be caused by thyroid dysfunction for which foods that are rich in iodine as also those having vitamin A should be consumed on a regular basis.
Iodine rich food sources include organic carrots or spinach, walnut, pumpkin and oil from cold-pressed flax seeds. Also good is sea salt which is rich in natural iodine, cabbage, soy beans, peanuts, millet and pine nuts. Consumption of these food items can greatly prevent hair loss in women.
Problems in the gastrointestinal tract and secretion of stomach acids can be controlled through medications that are used to cure GERD related problems, though it may take quite sometime to regain normalcy.
Apart from food and medication, some of the following measures may also help prevent hair loss in women. Regular Scalp Massaging can prevent hair loss to a great extent since it stimulates the hair follicles while improving the blood circulation in the scalp. The process also helps elimination of dead skin and sediments on the scalp that obstruct growth of healthy hair.
Using the right kind of shampoo with minimum amount of detergents (harsh ingredients) will also prevent hair loss in women. In fact, one should go for a shampoo that will nourish the scalp instead of exposing it to irritants. Equally important is to use adequate water to rinse out all traces of shampoo from the scalp.
And lastly, refrain from using hair drier to dry your hair quickly as studies have shown that women who use that device too often suffer most from hair loss. Also, keep away from chemical hair dyes because they eat up the inner configuration and external links of the hair passage, thus causing hair fall right at its source.
