Hair loss is nothing you should lose sleep over – simply learn to recognize the cause of your misery and choose the best way to regain rich and beautiful hair. But first a closer look at the roots of this complicated problem.
The most common causes of hair loss:
- Hormonal imbalance (including hair loss after childbirth)
- Genetic predispositions
- Seasonal changes
- Unbalanced diet
Childbirth and hair loss
The hormonal imbalance that women experience during pregnancy, after delivering their child or after the transitional phase is a very common cause of hair loss when estrogen levels fall dramatically. Hair loss may also come as a surprise during major weight fluctuations. But there’s no need to worry, as the hair that is lost was in the prolonged growth phase. This situation is completely natural and, happily, only temporary.
Stress, seasonal changes, unbalanced diet
Hair falls out when there is insufficient anchoring of the hair follicle in the damaged scalp. There are various causes of this problem. Unfortunately, many are related to stress, ubiquitous in today’s world, and that is why you need to learn to live in a way that doesn’t harm your body and soul. The most effective way to fight stress is a proper combination of relaxation, exercise and quality food. In fact, unhealthy nutrition itself can cause hair loss. Your hair, like the rest of your body, appreciates a diet rich in protein. Another way to ensure good scalp health is with added zinc, vitamin B and silicon. Seasonal hair loss is common in spring and fall and typically lasts around six weeks. In this case, bear in mind that your hair density will gradually return to normal.
Pamper your hair
The first step in preventing hair loss is tending to the health of your scalp. Hair falls out when it is poorly ‘anchored’ in the scalp. Hair loss prevention requires intensive hair treatment with a high level of active ingredients, usually once every three weeks.
We recommend Vichy Dercos Aminexil Clinical 5, a hair loss formula that strengthens the anchoring of hair roots in the scalp and is gentle on sensitive skin. The product is available in two versions, one for men and one for women.
As weak hair needs care, we suggest using a complete, integrated product line to look after your hair from the roots and strengthen it. You need a shampoo, conditioner, or hair mask to protect your hair from everyday stress. It is best to use products that contain no silicones and sulfates, which only put unnecessary strain on your scalp. Try Vichy Dercos Energising strengthening shampoo, which supports the smoothness and elasticity of the scalp tissue around your hair roots.
Other shampoos suitable for daily use include Ducray Anaphase, Klorane Quinine with cinchona extract, and La Roche-Posay Kerium, which provides nourishment to hair follicles while simultaneously suppressing micro-inflammation.
Be kind to your hair. Take care when using very hot hair dryers, dyeing, straightening and tying your hair in tight ponytails. These things don’t have a direct impact on hair loss, but they do cause your hair to break and become brittle.
An excellent way to promote growth is to massage your scalp. So don’t miss out on this pleasant procedure and be sure to have it done by your hair stylist. You can also do it on your own in the privacy of your own bathroom. Your hair will be grateful this and you’ll enjoy your luxurious mane!
