For a lot of us hair loss is inevitable. But that doesn’t stop us from panicking about it. It can occur for all sorts of reasons, not just because of our genetics. So if you’ve noticed more shedding than usual, don’t stress about it, instead here are some solutions you can try today to help strengthen your hair and slow the tide of hair loss.
Frederick Joyce, founder of Rejuvenate Med Spa and member of the International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery states, “if you have the baldness gene, there are some natural remedies that may make your hair stronger and healthier to slow your hair loss. Maintaining hair health by eating well and using the right products – combined with medical-grade treatments – can really work all together to help you have a fuller, thicker head of hair.”
Here are some of the best solutions for hair loss:
A good diet alone might not prevent hair loss, but the old adage of ‘you are what you eat’ definitely plays an important role. An unhealthy diet is going to result in unhealthy hair. So opt for a diet full of healthy fats and proteins to ensure your hair looks thicker and has a natural shine to it. Vitamin B has been found to be important in the formation of hair cells and growth, so make sure you pack spinach, eggs and fish into your diet.
The likes of Regaine have been found to be effective in preventing hair loss. It contains minoxidil, an ingredient that you can apply directly to your scalp, which helps hair regrowth. Combining these types of treatment with a healthy diet and exercise should result in noticeable improvements in hair health.
Scalp micropigmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can do anything from hide a bald patch to restore a completely bald head to look like a full head of well-groomed hair.
Formerly known as medical hairline tattooing, scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a life-changing treatment involving the application of natural pigments to the epidermal level of the scalp. This replicates the natural appearance of real hair follicles and strands.
Whilst not an answer to hair regrowth, SMP can simulate a full head of cropped hair and permanently camouflage hair loss. It is ideal for most types of balding and thinning hair, helping create a fuller appearance.
