Tips to Prevent Hair LossHair is a serious matter whether we have it, or we are losing it. Western society puts a lot of emphasis on being bodily thin, but when it comes to our hair, thin is not the word we want to hear!
While most baldness occurs in males, women are not immune to thinning and hair loss. 1 in 4 will experience this hair loss phenomenon before and during menopause, thanks to the changing hormones, estrogen and testosterone. The flip-flop in ratio of estrogen to testosterone during menopause causes women to lose the hair on their heads while growing it on their face, (now girls, we have always known some things are out of balance in our society, but this is ridiculous!), and while most men will accept this loss and move on, women have a harder time coming to terms with their hair loss.
Losing our locks, our beauty signature, is a devastating and depressing feeling. Brittle, dry hair is now the norm. Hair products such as expensive shampoos and conditioners no longer work like they have in the past. Just as expensive hair "goos" only dry your hair more and residue makes it look limp and dull. Hairsprays are just as bad as the alcohol content only makes lifeless hair seem more like a helmet than those soft, bouncy curls of yesteryear.
So what can we do to bring back those youthful looking hair days? Well you may be able to promote hair re-growth in a natural way by changing your diet and exercise routines. If you are not getting enough exercise or have a lot of stress in your life, aim for 30 minutes of aerobic exercise daily (P.S. exercise has nothing to do with hair re-growth what so ever, but it can't hurt!).
If you are eating to many red meats, or fatty foods, stop it! Start adding more fiber, fruits and veggies' to your diet. Also, drink water, lots of water. A beautiful inside can only promote our beautiful outside assets.
There are also professionals who believe that treatments to clean the body orally will promote a healthy and balanced system. These may include a licensed professional to perform an enema or colonic irrigation. Both of which sound very invasive, but if the right professional does the job there is nothing better than feeling good inside and out.
If those treatments seem too extreme, try Henna, for your hair, and Psyllium, for balance, two easy ways to achieve hair re-growth, a natural way to a more balanced system, are less intrusive, and can be found in any drug store.
If the above how to tips aren't for you, ladies there is still hope! Doctors have found that women are better candidates for hair plugs and hair transplants because of the way our hair thins, or how we lose our hair, as opposed to male pattern baldness. There are hormone treatments that can even-out the ratios in our bodies to start the hair re-growing pattern again (on our heads and not on our faces), and there are numerous over the counter medications for hair re-growth, that some say really do work!
Don't lose faith gals! Just read the tips listed here, try them if you want, and maybe you will see those luxsurious, full, shiny hair follicles coming back to life.
