Hair loss is a physiological issue that negatively impacts men and women. Hair loss can be caused by heredity, physical conditions like folliculitis and alopecia, hormone changes or imbalances, and certain medications. People often take pride in their hair. Losing it can in turn result in a specific loss of price and confidence as well. No matter the cause of some hair loss, here are five ways to slow down or potentially reverse the effects of hair loss.
Diet changes. Food plays a big role in overall health and hair health is no different. To maintain thick, healthy hair, it’s important to avoid foods associated with hair loss and increase consumption of hair healthy foods. Refined sugar and simple starches can lead to hair loss since they inhibit protein absorption, a necessary part of hair health. Mercury can also cause hair loss, so it’s best to avoid mackerel, swordfish and other fish that have high mercury content. On the other hand, foods high in Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s like avocados, pistachios, walnuts and cashews help hair maintain elasticity and reduce shedding.
