Hair can become thinner for several reasons. Age, lifestyle factors, and genetics can all play a role in how thick or thin your hair is throughout your life. If you’ve noticed increased hair loss or shedding, don’t panic! Sometimes, thinning hair simply needs some extra TLC to return to its fuller, healthier state. Permanent hair loss can also be resolved thanks to advanced hair restoration procedures, which are minimally invasive, require no downtime, and leave no visible scarring. Here are the best ways you can show your hair some love and get control of thinning and hair loss.
Everyone deals with some level of stress, but when stress levels run high, it can have a profound effect on the body. Hair loss is just one of the possible side effects of increased cortisol, the hormone associated with stress. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to soothe stress and get cortisone in check. Simple things like meditation, exercise, or even taking a daily walk outside can be incredibly effective. If you are finding it hard to shake stress or negative emotions, talking to a trained professional can help, and there are now convenient online options for those looking for support in managing stress, anxiety, and other issues affecting your quality of life.
There’s a reason they call it beauty sleep, and enjoying a good night’s rest regularly really does promote healthier, fuller hair. Lack of sleep stresses all of the body’s functions, including blood flow, and our hair and scalp especially depend on having healthy circulation. When blood flow decreases to the hair follicles, hair loss, breakage, and damage are the end result. Additionally, the stress from not sleeping well increases cortisol levels, which can also contribute to thinning hair and less hair growth.
Studies have shown that a healthy scalp is the foundation of a healthy head of hair, but most people pay a lot more attention to their strands than they do to the skin underneath them. If you’ve been overlooking scalp care, start by reading our blog on the topic. Introducing a proper scalp care routine that includes cleansing, exfoliation, massage, and treatment can go a long way to supporting healthier tresses.
Just as you’d incorporate special treatments into your skincare, your hair can benefit from a weekly hot oil treatment, moisturizing leave-in, or DIY hair mask. Deep conditioning hair regularly can prevent breakage and hair loss resulting from dry, weak strands. Next time you visit the salon, ask your stylist if they can recommend a treatment for an extra boost of TLC for your hair.
Using hot tools, wearing extensions, and coloring all take a toll on the hair. Even wearing your hair in tight hairstyles, whether that’s a bun, braid, or ponytail, can cause something called traction alopecia, where the follicles are so stressed from being pulled that they stop growing new hair. Consider changing up your style to let your natural texture shine through, or take steps to ensure that you’re styling your hair in the least damaging way possible.
In plenty of cases, hair loss can be traced back to hormones, specifically dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Because men naturally have more DHT, they tend to be more affected by hair loss, but women are susceptible to hair loss caused by hormonal imbalances as well. Speaking to your doctor about your hormone levels can help, and so can maintaining a healthy lifestyle to keep them balanced.
Enjoying a good diet and exercising regularly supports good overall health, which in turn supports healthy hair. If thinning hair is an issue, you can try supplementing your diet with hair-boosting vitamins such as vitamin B, vitamin C, folic acid (iron), and zinc. Exercise encourages circulation, including healthy blood flow to the scalp. Try to avoid junk food, eating too much salt, alcohol, and tobacco as well.
