  • Lack of exercise and poor eating habits can contribute to hair loss problems.
  • Ask for instructions from a good hair stylist for styling tips
  • Exclude refined foods from your diet, especially refined sugar and grain, known to contribute to a receding hairline. Fruits, vegetables, proteins, minerals, whole grains, and nuts keep body, mind and hair in a healthy condition.
  • Ensure your diet includes minerals such as magnesium, zinc and sel

  •  These mine
    rals help keep hair follicles strong and healthy.
  • Include B complex vitamins, A, E and C in the diet.
  • A deficiency in B group vitamins is known to cause hair loss or thinning hair
  • Include folate-rich foods in the diet. Folate refers to water soluble vitamin B and is essential nourishment for healthy hair.
  • Flax seeds or flax seed oil can provide natural oil for a healthy scalp and hair. Flax seed will make your hair glossy and shiny
  • Fresh pineapple in your diet strengthens hair and nails. The vitamin C helps to fight hair loss, by providing nourishment for hair follicles. Pineapples contain bromelain which is an anti-inflammatory and can help prevent scalp infections.
  • Fish oil is believed to be very effective against hair loss as it contains Omega 3 fatty acids that block or stop the conversion of testosterone into DHT. DHT is considered to be one of the primary causes of receding hairlines in women and men.
  • Exercise is critical, not just for overall health, but also for the prevention of hair loss. Exercise improves blood circulation and a supply of oxygen to hair follicles, providing essential nourishment.
  • Use hair styling products that do not contain alcohol. Alcohol causes drying of the scalp, which can lead to a receding hairline. Check the list of ingredients in the hair styling products before purchase.
  • Try not to comb hair backward. Aggressive over combing is a common cause of hair thinning in women. It is good to brush hair or massage the scalp, but a soft brush is preferable.  Be kind to your head.
  • 5 minutes a day dedicated to scalp massage improves blood circulation, much like exercise and provides nourishment to hair follicles.
  • Avoid hair pulling, including wearing tightly bound ponytails.
  • Stress is a leading cause of a receding hairline in women. In fact, hair loss is one of the symptoms of severe stress, anxiety, and depression. Learn to meditate, practice yoga or seek ways to reduce stress in your life from professionals.
  • Pillowcases made from satin and silk allow the hair to slide with ease with no friction and this can help reduce hair loss.

What not to do: 

  •  Spare your hair of all the sprays, mousse and gels you had been using so long to set a particular style. You may look good for the night but what about the damage you are exposing your hair to. 
  • Please promise to say NO to heat treatments from now on. Do you know how much damage you are causing to your hair by all these artificial heat exposures? The heat steals all the nature moisture from your hair leaving them as dry as grass. 
  •  Oil your hair with natural oils like coconut, olive, almond or castor oil.
