Care and Prevention of Hair Loss
 
It remains unknown why certain hair follicles have a shorter growth period than others.

Known as involutional alopecia, gradual thinning of hair with age a is natural condition. While the number of hair follicles that go into a resting stage or telogenic stage keep increasing, the remaining hairs become shorter and fewer in number.

It is linked to a variety of factors, such as genetics, diet, or disease. If you are thinking of possibilities for preventing hair loss, then you can look into taking proper care of your hair.

If you are experiencing hair loss, first find out why it is happening. This will affect what you can use and what will be most effective for your situation. If the hair loss is related to stress, for example, you may want to get a different type of treatment than if it is related to genetics. No matter what the reason is, you can most likely find a variety of recommendations available to you.

Make sure that your hair is receiving the right amount of nutrients. Zinc, protein and other natural sources will help your hair look healthier and may also prevent hair loss. Keeping a balanced diet will also be effective in making sure that your hair stays thicker and healthier. The balance of your entire body can be measured by the way your hair looks.

You can check with any health care provider or holistic medication area to find treatments for hair loss. Oils, creams and herbal remedies are often used in helping to prevent hair loss. A few homeopathic remedies are thought to be effective for hair loss, particularly when thinning is caused by stress, emotional trauma or pregnancy. You can look in your health food store for over-the-counter preparations or consult a professional for more alternatives.

Another way in which you can take care of your hair effectively is to make sure that you are keeping it clean. It is recommended not washing your hair more than once a day; however, you should not wash it less than once a week. This will allow the dirt and oils to come out of the hair with the proper washings. If you have a sensitive scalp, you should consider using a softer type of shampoo or one that has specific medication to help your hair.
  Pay attention to the types of products that you are putting in your hair. While most hair products that are used for dying hair are known to be safe, some will contain extra chemicals that can be detrimental. This will then cause the protective layer to be lost and will leave your hair exposed. Over time, this will cause your hair to be lost easily

Women in particular, put their hair under enormous stress for the sole purpose of beauty. Try to style it in a way that will not affect it negatively. For instance, blow-drying your hair will affect the cuticles that protect your hair. If you have to blow dry your hair, use the heat level on low in order to prevent damage. You should also learn to style your hair when it is damp or dry. This will not put as much stress on your hair and will prevent hair loss. When your hair is wet, it will be easier for it to stretch and break.

There are some medications available to prevent hair thinning. While these are known to not effectively eliminate hair loss from occurring, it may slow down the effects and allow you to keep some hair on your head. The medications most commonly used are known as finasteride and minoxidil. Finasteride is known to work by preventing the enzyme from the hair to interact with the testosterone. This will then allow the chemical that affects the hair follicle not to be produced. Minoxidil, or Rogaine, is known to be effective as a cream that is applied to the head twice a day. It will then cause a reaction from the hair follicles and will allow the hair to grow.

If the hair loss is sudden and is coming out in larger clumps, you will want to check with your physician. This may be related to a hair loss disease and should be treated right away in order to prevent complications. When you lose your hair in relation to a disease, you can expect it to grow back once the disease is gone.

Massaging your hair scalp will improve blood circulation, which in turn will help improve the health of your scalp and hair. A few drops of vitamin E oil massaged into your scalp will fortify fragile hair and help prevent dry skin.
