How To Prevent Hair Loss

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

  1. Take extra vitamin C and iron
    Hair loss can occur because iron deficiency lowers levels of red blood cells, which are crucial to the health of hair follicles. Save hair with iron supplements paired with vitamin C (which aids iron absorption), which is a cheap and effective method.
  2. Revamp your diet
    Eat foods high in omega-3 fatty acids--such as salmon and mackerel--two or three times a week, or sprinkle a tablespoon or two of freshly ground flaxseed onto salads or cereal each day.
  3. Don't overheat your hair
    Set your hair dryer on cool and low settings, and minimize your use of flat irons. Don't dye your hair more than one or two shades its normal color: The more severe the color change, the more chemicals you require, which can make hair break. If you use hair gel or hair spray, don't wait for it to dry before you comb through it, because the hair will harden and be more likely to break.
  4. Talk to your doctor
    There are several health conditions that can lead to hair loss, including stress, thyroid disease, anemia, and medications for heart disease. Talk to your doctor if your hair is coming out abnormally to make sure it's not one of these other issues causing shedding.
  5. Check your family tree
    The most common type of hair loss is hereditary. If mom and dad lost their hair, you help counter genes by making sure you consume plenty of omega-3 fatty acids to keep hair from getting brittle, says Prevention advisor Andrew Weil, MD. Take a fish oil supplement or add more fish and flax to your diet.
