How can I reduce thinning and Hair Loss
Alopecia, cancer, and certain hair styles all contribute to thinning hair and hair loss in a woman.
Here are some steps you can take immediately to improve the health of your hair. These suggestions aren’t a cure for hair loss, but they will help.
- 1. Consume plenty of protein and plenty of iron.
Because hair is almost ALL protein. So it’s easy to surmise that a lack of protein will have an impact on its health!
Ways to get more protein: eat more lentils, fish, poultry, eggs, nuts and Greek yogurt.
Ways to get more Iron: Iron is often neglected as an important nutrient for the hair. But some experts say that iron deficiency causes hair loss more often than we realize.
Some good sources of iron include meat, dark leafy greens, whole grains, and oats.
Something to remember: Since our bodies aren’t great at absorbing iron. But there are two ways we can get more iron from our food.
Eat iron-rich foods along with foods high in vitamin C. So a meaty spaghetti sauce – combining meat and tomatoes – is ideal.
Great tip: Try Cooking foods in cast iron cookware. Some of the iron from the pan will ‘leak into the food. Acidic foods (like tomatoes) ‘suck’ even MORE iron from the pan. So cooking that meaty spaghetti sauce in a cast iron pan will give you a wonderfully iron-rich meal!
- Use satin pillowcases.
They not only look better than cotton sheets, but they’re not terribly expensive and they are SO gentle to the hair. They minimize breakage and reduce static.
Another fabulous benefit, they are believed to help reduce wrinkles too!
- Consider taking fish oil and blackcurrant seed oil supplements.
(Always check with your doctor first). This combination is one of the few remedies PROVEN to have some real benefits.
- Stop stressing your hair!
If wear the part in the same place every day or if you wear a ponytail in the same place every day?
Then you are putting a strain on certain sections of the hair.
The problem is If your hair is weak, those sections will break.
So change your styles as often as you can, moving around your part and changing the location of your pony tail. Doobies
