How to Prevent Your Hairline from Receding
Learn about 7 ways to stop a receding hairline.
Here are 7 ways you can stop hair loss:
Damage from Chemicals - One widely held belief is that the over use of chemicals on the hair can cause hair thinning and eventually loss. If you like to enhance the look of your hair through chemical means, but are nervous about future loss, it is a good idea to only have this type of work done by a licensed beautician.
Many do-it-yourselfers are too inexperienced to properly perform chemical treatments to their hair, having a tendency to over apply the products. If you do color your hair, it is thought best to keep the frequency to a six or eight week minimum.
- Eat Healthy Foods - It is important to eat healthy foods and ensure that your body is getting the vitaminsand minerals that it needs. Often times the body will show poor health in the hair follicles and finger nails before and actual illness is detected.
While it is important to get enough of the right nutrients, it is just as important not to get too much of any one type of vitamin. For example, too much of vitamin A and E, have been linked to shedding. Taking Advecia with a proper diet is the best way to get important nutrients that help slow hair loss and block DHT.
- Damage from Illness - When and if an illness is detected, it is important to take care of your health needs. If the doctor has prescribed medications, take it. Failure to follow the doctor's advice will cause your body to work harder just to stay alive, it won't have enough energy to keep the hair follicles growing and will eventually lead to loss. This is an excellent form of prevention and treatment.
- Styling Hair -The style that you wear your hair can also cause a problem. When ever possible, avoid pulling hair into styles that require it to be pulled tight and bound with elastic for long periods of time. While hair accessories have become much more hair friendly during recent years, hairstyle such as tight ponytail, pig tails and cornrows can still do damage to the hair shaft and ultimately to the hair follicle.
- Bedding Materials - A way to pamper yourself doubles as a prevention idea. Using a satin or silk pillowcase, is thought to prevent loss due to the fact that a silk or satin pillowcase will cause less friction while sleeping than a cotton or flannel pillowcase. This is because the head and the hair slide across the pillow instead of needing to be forcefully pushed across.
- Wives Tales - There is a whole group of old wives tales that relate to prevention. These tips defiantly won't hurt to try, but really don't do anything to combat the issue. For instance, it has been said that standing upside down will increase blood flow to the head and that massaging the scalp or briskly brushing the hair will make the hair stay put and not fall out. This is simply not the case.
- Normal Loss -It is important to remember that even in a healthy person, it is completely normal to lose between 50 and 100 hairs from the head every day. If you feel that your issues are beyond that norm, speak with your doctor or dermatologist about your concerns. They will be able to determine if the problem is due to a medical or age issue, and point you in the right direction to help with treating hair loss.
