Preventing Hair Loss

Improper Hair Care Leads to Hair Loss

Did you know that people can bring hair loss upon themselves? Not everyone suffers from genetic hair loss. Some people experience thinning hair because of improper hair care. If you don't take care of your hair, you will be faced with a hair loss problem.

The key to healthy hair is in our hands. How we treat our hair directly impacts its overall health. Treat it with great care, and you'll have healthy, strong hair.

Here are a few common types of improper hair care.

Reasons for Hair Loss

  • Mechanical Damage- Many people are ruining their hair, and they don't even know it. Mechanical damage can occur from over-brushing, blow drying, and harsh towel drying. Combing your hair when it's wet causes the hair to weaken and to break. Blow drying, on the other hand, essentially fries your hair, and towel drying can strip the hair of essential nutrients. What can you do to stop you hair loss problem? First, avoid brushing your hair when it's wet. Second, you shouldn't use the blow dryer unless your hair is coated with a protective product. Lastly, don't rub your hair harshly with a towel. Gently squeeze the water from your hair with a small towel. All of these things will help strengthen your hair.
  • Chemical Damage- We are constantly putting chemicals in our hair. Sprays, gels, and hair dyes are used to help improve our appearance. However, many of these products are actually harmful to our hair. Excessive use of them can damage your hair and cause it to fall out. The more you use these products, the weaker your hair becomes. Limit use of harmful hair care products. Furthermore, always research a product before you put it in your hair. Your hair is fragile; treat it with the care it needs to be healthy and beautiful.

Improper Hair Care

Always remember that the gentler you are with your hair, the more likely it is that you'll have healthy hair. Avoid hair loss problems by limiting your contact with your hair. You can't be constantly combing and treating your hair.
