For one in four women hair loss is a potentially devastating problem they may suffer from. But the good news is you can do something behind this statistic. There’s some new research behind the science of hair loss.
Stress has always been known to be one of the top reasons for female hair loss, or telogen effluvium. New research shows the second highest predictor of central hair loss in women is their marital status. Divorce or death of a partner can actually cause thinning of hair.
In women, there can be other reasons for hair loss including diet, major surgery, poor self-image, lack of exercise, storing toxins, weight loss or medications.
To keep your hair for longer try the NUTRIGRO PLAN
As I have said in my book Hair Today…Hair Tomorrow “the body almost says you are going to lose hair at a certain time. The secret is to learn to forestall that time.”
Nutrition. Ensure you are eating a good source of protein, biotin and iron supplements. A new study found that excessive drinking and smoking can also increase the risk for hair loss in women. During or after menopause reduced oestrogen can cause hair loss. Increase in oestrogen rich foods such as soya and tofu, consider hormone replacement therapy or a hair food supplement.
Use non-harsh chemical hair products that are free from the Lauryl Sulphates or Ammonia and do not excessively style your hair.
A recent American study shows 30 percent of middle-aged black women are balding due to using harsh chemical products, too tight braiding and ponytails that are pulling the hair. Try setting your hair dryer on low, your styling equipment to 160 degrees Centigrade for thinning hair, 190 degrees for normal and 220 degrees for thick hair and try to limit heating your hair locks to maximum three times a week.
Train or exercise has shown to help better blood flow and hence nutrients to the scalp. Simple exercises such as walking or running will help. Try 20 minutes exercise at least three times a week at a brisk speed of 50% faster than your normal pattern.
Remove toxin build up on the scalp and body regularly
Massage the scalp regularly. Try massaging whilst shampooing. To learn the technique of ayurvedic head massage and shampooing email me. The ancient Indian technique of using hot and cold water whilst washing hair can help in hair loss.
Imagine the hair you want. Paulo Coelho rightly says “Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.”
The growth of hair is best achieved doing the above.
