Hairs are easily the most integral part of our personality that somehow completes our confidence. Many behavior experts also take the way we maintain our hair health and groomed as the reflection of our personality and much like skin we also take special care of hairs too. But despite this, some people would still lose hairs. There are many factors that can causes such hair condition and factually factors that causes hair-loss in men would vary from reason for women. Indeed aging and hormonal factors remains the same, but following are some of the habits or things we do that can collectively cause one to lose the hair follicles:
Those Steamy Showers: indeed they feel soothing and calming but apparentlu it is not good for your hair health. Hot water dehydrates strands, leading to dry, brittle hair that’s more prone to snap and fall out. It not only are you washing your hair’s protective oils down the drain, but the heat throws your scalp’s pores into overdrive to keep up with oil production, which can damage the root and lead to additional shedding. It is best to wash your hairs with warm or room temperature water.
Blow Dryers: as for not, you might have got the idea that it is not good for your hairs, this tip just extend that. Eventually temperature damage the proteins that make up your hair and its protective cuticle and once such cuticles are damaged, the moisture balance is disrupted making more prone to breakage. And it is better to save your strands by limiting your hot tool usage, even your blow-dryer; at least until hair health is restores. And try to manage you washing regime schedule to let the hair naturally.
Diet: much like skin conditions, unhealthy diet can also damage hair health and eventually make them lose to fall and vulnerable to cause skin complications. And much like any other health complications, it can also be fixed by tuning diet. Like opting for healthy diet with plenty of lean protein like fish, chicken, lentils and beans is a good thing to do in order. Apparently you can aim for 46 grams per day or about 25 to 30% of your total calories would also help in restoring degraded health.
The way you tie: apparently the tread of man-bun or corporate buns does come with silent side effects. Such styles put excessive tension on the hair follicles, damaging them and creating scars that destroy them permanently. This can lead to traction alopecia, a condition that permanently weakens the follicle and makes it impossible for hair to grow. So it is wise to keep it slight lose up until hair scalp wouldn’t feel stretched out back.
The hair products you use: If your hairspray or gel claims that it last All-day and it is Mega-hold, they’re actually making your locks harder to hold on to, then they are more like to be sticky with industrial substance that can cause ethereal damage. Such hair products are usually high in alcohol, which makes hair dry and brittle and once you comb or brush your hair, that residue causes the hair to break and fall out. Just try to avoid using it or if you does make sure you get rid of it as soon as you hit the bed.
Taking Birth control Pills: it might seem absurd but eventually such pills does influences the hormonal cycle. If you’re one of the many women who are sensitive to hair shedding or thinning due to hormonal changes, the wrong oral birth control can weaken your hair. Such pill that contains androgens can cause hair loss for someone who’s ‘androgen sensitive’ and doesn’t know it. And it is better to ask for better suitable birth control pills if you notice hair fall.
Stress: out of many side effects stress could render, its correlation with alopecia is most embarrassing one. It can influence metabolism, hormonal cycle and also make immunity to defend against infection, fungal particularly, that can make fair fall much worse to manage. So it is better to deal with the factors.
Though it is always better to opt for dermatological help to get the better diagnosis and reasoning behind hair fall and also seek right treatment for it.
