Every woman wishes to twist and turn her hair into various hairstyles. But, there is always that one unexpected thing that confuses and terrifies them- hair fall! Lovers of luscious locks cannot seem to find out the real reason behind it, and in turn end up getting more anxious. Not many girls admit it, but erratic working hours, sleepless nights and most importantly stress often causes hair fall. So, let us explore some easy tips that can prevent hair fall and promote beautiful tresses.
Whether you are a housewife or a working woman, following the same routine day in and day out can leave you physically drained and mentally exhausted. This can further lead to stress, creating problems like hair loss. So, do not sit at home worrying about it, rather catch a movie or go on a lunch date with your best buddies. By doing this, your mind will become calm and will give way to healthy skin and hair.
Try something new
There is no denying to the fact that your hair is connected to your physical well-being. So, to keep your hair strong, the first thing you need is to have a right fitness plan. Choose the exercise you love doing the most, say may be learning a dance form, working out in a gym or a jog in the nearby park. But most importantly, try new things to keep the workout boredom at bay. Go for Pilates, aerobics, bhangra aerobics, yoga, meditation, water aerobics, etc.
You are what you eat
Eating right will not only help you to get rid of stress, but also your hair fall. Eat small portions throughout the day. Try having eggs, fruits, nuts, fish, oats and milk. The nutrients like protein and Omega-3 fatty acids in these foods help in strengthening your hair roots. Avoid too much caffeine; replace it by healthy drinks like fresh juices, green tea, etc. Start taking vitamin and mineral supplements like vitamin C, calcium and B-complex. These will also help prevent hair loss and promote shinier and longer hair.
Reboot your hair
Make time for some head massages with essential oils like coconut, olive, and almond. Lavender, orange, hibiscus (flower), and rosemary extracts can also be added to these oils to discourage hair fall. Try going for a hair spa once in a while as it will nourish your hair, and de-stress your mind too.
According to a hair loss clinic in Britain, the Belgravia Centre, “Lack of sleep has been shown to affect the body’s immune function, hormone secretion, and physical and mental stamina. Hair is very sensitive to changes within the body, and hair loss is nearly always the consequence of these internal disturbances."
Well, now that you know how stress can weaken your lustrous mane, it is best to steer clear of it. And, if you still cannot forego it, follow these tips to keep your hair strong and shiny.
