Daily Regimen: Small Changes To Make To Prevent Long Term Hair Loss
Reduce (or Quit) Smoking
Those who smoke 20 cigarettes or more per day are at a significantly higher risk of hair loss than those who don’t. The toxins found in cigarette smoke reduces blood flow to your hair follicles, which over time promotes increased pattern baldness and thinning. You’ll save a ton of money and be healthier overall as well, so it’s a life decision with serious rewards past hair preservation.
Increase Your Protein
Consider your diet carefully, and be sure to consider your quantities of protein intake! Studies have shown that a lack of protein in your diet can significantly impact your hair growth. Since your hair’s strands are made up of protein fibers, a lack of protein makes it prioritize its limited amounts over others areas of your scalp and body.
Be Mindful of Your Medication
Sometimes the medication that you are taking could be the reason behind any hair loss that you’re experiencing. Talk to your doctor about any thinning you’re experiencing, and ask them to review all medications with that in mind. A combination of medications could be your culprit!
Stress could be one of the leading factors causing your hair loss. It’s bad for your health in its entirety, but luckily it has a tendency to pass as quickly as it comes. Focus on activities that keep you calm and reduce your anxiety; you’ll be more likely to see improved results over time! Perhaps take a bubble bath tonight?
Keep Yourself Hydrated
Did you know, over ¼ of every hair molecule on your body is comprised of water? Dehydration in your body can make hair more brittle and therefore likely to break, as well as impact your hair growth. Try to drink 8 glasses of water daily and your hair, skin, and nails will thank you.
Buy Biotin-Infused Hair Product
Incorporate a growth-stimulating shampoo. Amplixin® Stimulating Shampoo is the first step in the Amplixin® Hair Support System that contains a powerful combination of Caffeine, Acetyl-Tetrapeptide-3 and Red Clover, which have been proven in independent lab studies to provide thicker and denser-looking hair by suppressing the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the most common cause of hair loss, and stimulate extracellular matrix proteins to help encourage healthy hair growth. Consider incorporating intensive growth serums, as well.
Avoid Using Heat on Your Hair
Those favored styling tools can make your locks look great in the short term, but they have an adverse effect on your hair over time. If you can, eliminate using them as often as possible, and instead opt to dry naturally after a shower. When you do style with a hair dryer or other tools, choose the low-heat setting and incorporate heat protectant products.
Cut Down on The Alcohol
This may be especially tough if you’re experiencing stress mentioned above, but it’s a sacrifice you’ll have to make if you’re on committed to trying to maintain thicker hair!
If you’re serious about thickening your hair, cutting down on the sauce is a sacrifice you may have to make. While you don’t have to eliminate it altogether, you’ll want to bypass that weekend binge!
