Let’s take a closer look at the top treatments and lifestyle advice for healthy hair.
You can’t change your genetics, and many people are prone to a hereditary type of hair loss, which is progressive and permanent. Androgenic alopecia is the leading cause of baldness that prompts people to seek hair transplant surgery. If the inevitable pattern of hair loss runs in your family, you may not be able to avoid it. However, there are ways you can slow down the process. Here are five ways you can fight the fallout, strengthen and thicken your hair.
1. Eat plenty of protein
Amino acids contained in dietary protein forms building blocks for healthy cells and have many benefits. Essential for hair growth, protein-rich foods should be a key part of your diet. Try adding: Eggs, lentils, fish, and lean beef, beans and soy. You can also supplement with a quality protein or collagen powder. Our medical experts can advise you about healthy ways to improve your diet as part of your hair restoration plan.
2. Reduce stress.
Stress can lead to plenty of widespread health issues, and the visible evidence often appears in skin and hair. Aside from weight fluctuations, sleep deprivation, heart health problems and digestive dysfunction, your hair can fall out due to stress too. An overproduction of stress hormones consistently leads to adrenal fatigue, and that diminishes the normal production of hormones like aldosterone or androgens. These hormones are required for healthy hair growth. After a period of emotional trauma or extreme stress, people often find they shed significant hair. The good news is that once the cause is removed, hair usually grows back.
