Daily hair fall is normal: the life cycle of each hair ends in a natural process of “withering away.” Therefore, a loss of 50-100 hairs per day is considered the norm. On the contrary, if your hairs never grow back, then you should be worried. When hair loss occurs, without proper attention the condition can worsen.
First of all, it is necessary to find the cause of your hair loss. Our hair is an indicator for the state of the body, and therefore a sharp reduction in the volume of hair – it’s a bell, signalling that health is not all right.
Furthermore, the use of hot styling tools such as curling irons and straighteners can cause substantial damage. For example some medications have a side effect that causes hair loss. Examples of these mediations include:
Identifying why you’re losing hair is the key to stopping your hair fall. Once you’re aware of the causes you can make changes to counteract the cause. For example, if your alopecia is a result of poor diet or poor hair care then you should work to improve them.
The most effective way to restore your hair fall is with a hair transplant. Hair transplants can create a full head of hair in just one sitting – depending on the extent of your hair loss.
Sometimes a “top-up” procedure is needed if your hair loss is severe, as it’s only possible to transplant a certain number of grafts in one sitting. Therefore occasionally you may need more than one appointment, but this will be made clear to you during the consultation stage. From a hair transplant, you can grow new hair in the areas that were previously balding.
So let’s focus on how you can improve your diet to stop hair fall and grow new and stronger hair.
Your body will always prioritise its most vital organs before your hair. Therefore it’s important to consume plenty of the right nutrients to promote healthy hair growth. Some of the most important nutrients include protein, iron, omega 3, biotin and vitamin E.
Some of the main foods that stop hair fall and improve hair growth include:
One main rule is to avoid processed foods at all costs. Processed foods are incredibly low in nutrients that are needed to promote hair growth. Whereas vegetables and lean meats are packed full of valuable benefits.
Water is one of the most important things we can consume for our body’s health and good function. Drinking between 2-3 litres of water per day is recommended for you to grow healthy hair.
Much like how a plant needs water to grow, so does hair. Water supports vitamins within your body which, as we know, improves hair growth. Therefore, dehydration immediately halts growth. Our hair needs moisture to grow effectively so a lack of water in our diets has a huge impact on the health of our hair.
Sometimes hair fall is completely normal as it can be part of our natural hair growth cycle. However, there are different types of hair loss, some more severe than others, that need immediate treatment.
Common causes of hair loss include alopecia areata, hormone imbalances and poor nutrition. Hormones play a major role when it comes to hair fall, in fact, it’s the most common reason why we experience male pattern baldness and female pattern hair loss. Just like looking after a plant, providing your hair with a nutrient-rich foundation to grow in is vital for its health.
