Gorgeous, vibrant hair is not just about genetics; it’s about cultivating healthy scalp and hair care habits. By prioritizing your hair and scalp’s well-being, you can rejuvenate the look and feel of your hair at every age and stage.
In this guide, we will explore the positive steps you can take to promote hair vitality and vibrance. Whether you’re looking to prevent future hair issues or rejuvenate your current hair health, the key is a balanced and nurturing approach to your hair care routine.
The Importance of Healthy Habits in Hair Loss Prevention
The most common cause of hair loss is genetics or pattern baldness. If hair loss is part of your DNA, then you will experience progressive hair thinning, meaning your hair will begin to miniaturize, becoming finer and thinner over time until it just stops growing altogether.
Unhealthy habits can cause or contribute to hair loss in both men and women – everything from stress, poor diets, severe or tight braids and ponytails to less than optimal hair care habits which may cause irreversible damage to the hair follicles, preventing hair regrowth. If your hair is not looking healthy, it may be time to evaluate your hair care regimen and make improvements. If changing your hair care habits is not revitalizing the appearance and health of your hair or if you are experiencing increased hair shedding, it’s time to consult with the hair experts at Ziering Medical.
Eat A Hair Healthy Diet
Manage Your Stress
Stress and trauma can cause follicles to enter the resting phase prematurely, preventing the growth of new hair and causing hair shedding. This is a reversible condition, but it is much better to avoid this in the first place, as stressinduced hair loss or telogen effluvium could exacerbate or contribute to other factors or preconditions.
Thus, a proactive approach to managing stress levels is ideal. Regular exercise, balanced diets, relaxation techniques such as yoga or meditation, and adequate amounts of sleep will keep stress levels down and prevent telogen effluvium. And stay hydrated!
If your hair shedding continues, it’s time to consult with a physician because the shedding may be unmasking genetic hair loss. Or you may just need to up your hair care and maintenance routine by adding a daily application of a specially formulated minoxidil topical, or a hair growth serum like KeraFactor™, the Ziering Laser Cap, and a trusted supplement like ViviscalPRO. Depending on the cause of your hair loss medication, an oral medication like finasteride may be recommended for men or for women who are post-menopausal. Ziering Medical also offers a topical Finasteride, ZFIN, for patients who may not be able to tolerate the oral form of this medication. These products may be used in various combinations to stabilize your hair loss and encourage hair regrowth.
