The latest technology has given more ways to improve hair regrowth. Research has shown that we lose at least 50-100 strands per day, but as we age, this number tends to increase. Re-growing hair takes time and is sometimes very costly. However, it is good to know that there are ways that you can help your hair grow naturally using fewer chemicals, and more on a change of habits and lifestyle.
1) Consult your doctor regarding your hair loss problem.
One of the causes of hair fall in women is hormonal imbalance. Consult with your doctor to see if your hair loss is caused by this. Like men, high levels of testosterone in women can also cause hair fall, and eventually, hair loss. Hair regrowth of cases like this can be done through prescription medications given to you by your doctor.
2) Change brushes.
Hair fall is also caused by excessive brushing and the use of the wrong brushes – yes, there are different brushes suited for all hair types and hair conditions. Using the wrong hair brush for your hair can leave hair very brittle and very prone to split ends and breakage. For brushing wet hair, use a wide-toothed comb, not a heavily-bristled brush.
3) Avoid hair colorants containing ammonia.
If you are used to dyeing your own hair, avoid colorants that contain ammonia, as this weakens the fibers, continuing the breakage and stopping hair regrowth. Products with ammonia are usually tagged as “permanent” colorants, which generally lasts for 6-8 weeks. Instead, opt for those containing hydrogen peroxide, which has the same dyeing qualities as ammonia, only gentler. Products containing hydrogen peroxide lasts less long than the ammonia-treated ones, and are labelled as semi-permanent colorants. You might also want to use products that are both ammonia and hydrogen peroxide-free in between treatments. These products are usually used to color gray areas along the hairline, and are temporary hair regrowth products.
4) Avoid shampooing every day.
Yes, you read that right! Washing your hair everyday often contributes to an increased amount of hair loss, and it prevents your hair’s natural oils to give nourishment to your hair follicles, making your hair more prone to breakage. If possible, wash your hair every other day, or every three days.
5) In the meantime, make use of products that help mask thinning spots.
Remember that re-growing hair takes time and patience. While doing these steps daily, use products that help you hide the thinning areas of your head. Use wigs if you prefer, since the fibers in wigs are less prone to breakage. In a few months, you will notice changes and lesser breakage, a sign of hair regrowth. You may also opt to use hair extensions to cover thinning areas.
6) Monitor your progress.
As you continue with your new regimen, notice how much hair you are losing. Look around the area and see how much still falls out when you comb or style. Healthier hair means less hair fall, which means more room for regrowth.
7) Trim once in a while.
The most important thing to remember for healthy hair regrowth is to have it trimmed once every six to eight weeks. This will help reduce split ends as well.
Hair loss is a huge shock, most especially for women, since the mane is also considered as an asset. These are just simple routines you can add to your daily beauty regimen. Patience is necessary. As it took months for your hair to fall out, hair regrowth and regeneration will also take time.
