Human hair lives for 2 to 6 years, and then it falls out to give way to new hair. This is the absolute norm, and hair loss is a natural part of their life cycle, so don’t worry. The problem starts when more than 100-200 hairs are lost from our head daily. So what to do to effectively stop baldness?
THE CAUSES OF HAIR LOSS
One of the most common causes of hair loss is improper diet or intensive weight loss, which lead to vitamin and micronutrient deficiencies. If you want to keep lush hair, first of all you should take care of a balanced diet and take dietary supplements containing: biotin, zinc, vitamin B, extracts of horsetail or nettle, and unsaturated fatty acids. Unfortunately, you need to wait about 5-6 months for the effects, because this is how long the hair growth cycle takes. Improper care also affects the weakening of the hair follicles. Frequent and too intense hairdressing treatments, jerking, strong pinching (tight bun or ponytail) and high temperature accompanying drying, curling or straightening weaken the hair, thus contributing to excessive hair loss. In this case, it is worth using external preparations against hair loss , e.g. shampoos, ampoules or masks.
Excessive hair loss can also be a side effect of antibiotics, anticoagulants, antithyroid drugs, cytostatics, or hormones. Stress, thyroid disease, anemia or hormonal disorders also contribute to thinning hair. If, despite dietary supplementation, careful hair care and a healthy lifestyle, hair still falls out, it is worth visiting a specialist – hair loss is not only an aesthetic problem, but also a medical one.
