Hair loss is far more common than you would think. So before you drive to your local pharmacy and dump your funds into a plethora of products that may or may not work, I want to reassure you that the key to hair loss management isn’t a random solution in a bottle. There are a variety of lifestyle changes you can incorporate into your routine that don’t require a complete overhaul of all your favorite haircare products.

Before we dive into the various treatments and tips, it’s important to note that there are two distinct types of hair loss. The first is known as progressive hair thinning and describes persistent loss over time. It’s also a symptom of androgenetic alopecia. If this sounds like what you’re experiencing, the best solution would be to consult a doctor and consider if medicine or hormone replacement treatment would work in your favor.

The other type of hair loss is known as reactionary hair thinning and is much more sudden. This could be triggered by anything from weight loss, stress, pregnancy, and vitamin deficiency. If you believe you are currently suffering from this type of hair loss, here are 5 tips to prevent additional hair loss.

Scalp Massages

Scalp massages are believed by some to be an effective and accessible way to promote hair health and potentially prevent hair loss. Massaging the scalp helps to improve blood circulation to the hair follicles, ensuring a better supply of nutrients and oxygen. This increased blood flow is thought to stimulate hair follicles. Simply set aside a few minutes in your nightly routine to incorporate a 5 – 10 minute massage. While your fingers are effective, you can also invest in a gentle massage tool.

Scalp Care

In addition to routine scalp massages, the products you may want to consider investing in are ones that deal directly with promoting the health of your scalp. A clean and well-nourished scalp provides an optimal environment for hair follicles to thrive. Regular cleansing helps remove excess oil, debris, and dead skin cells that can clog hair follicles and potentially hinder hair growth. Try a weekly scalp scrub for a deep cleanse followed by a nourishing scalp serum.

On top of that, it’s worth exploring natural oils that might work wonders for hair loss. Studies have shown that these options could be the real deal:

Rosemary Oil: In 2015, researchers showed that rosemary oil was as effective as Rogaine (minoxidil 2%), for tackling androgenetic alopecia.

Pumpkin Seed Oil: Ladies, listen up! For female androgenetic alopecia, three months of pumpkin seed oil treatment might be as good as the 5% minoxidil solutions.

Plant Power Combo: Picture this – thyme, rosemary, lavender, and sandalwood oil hanging out together. A tiny study spilled that 75% of this squad had less hair loss and more regrowth at three months.

Coconut Oil: The OG of natural goodness! Researchers found coconut oil can help fix hair damaged by UV rays or protein loss from those hair treatments we love.

Avoid Tight Hairstyles

I get it – rocking a slicked-back bun is a whole vibe, but let’s spill the tea on a little secret: it might not be the best move if you’re all about preventing hair loss. Those styles that tug on the hair, like the go-to ponytails, extensions or buns, can seriously stress out your hair and lead to some unwanted breakage. I’m not saying goodbye to the cute updos… I’m just suggesting a glow-up.

Switch it up by letting your hair down or rocking looser hairstyles. And for a fresh alternative to your slicked-back bun, enter the chic claw clip. It’s not just a vibe; it’s a hair-saving accessory. Next time you need to throw your hair up, do it in style with this game-changer. It’s all about keeping those locks on point without the unnecessary stress.

Use a Wide Toothed Comb

Swapping your regular hair brush for a wide tooth comb, especially post-shower, can be a simple yet effective way to prevent hair loss and minimize damage. Unlike fine bristles, these are more gentle on wet hair, reducing the risk of breakage and split ends. They also help in detangling knots without causing too much stress on the hair. This gentle approach is particularly important because wet hair is more prone to damage.

Red Light Therapy

Studies suggest that bathing your scalp in red light might just be the secret sauce for tackling hair loss. It’s like giving your hair a power-up with the magic of wavelengths. The red light vibes stimulate hair follicles, boosting growth and decreasing the shedding drama. They also wake up those sleepy follicles and push them into the growth phase. Now, you might think this hair gadget would cost a fortune at the dermatologist, but there are options on the market you can use right at home!

These 5 tips have helped me in preventing hair loss. Here’s hoping they do the same for you!
