Hair Loss Prevention Tips for Women

With all the hormonal ups and downs that women face, there are bound to be some physical reactions to them at some times throughout life. Too often, one of those reactions to hormonal problems is hair loss. When women experience hair loss, it can be something that makes them want to hide. Unfortunately, the emotional damage involved combined and the stress it can add to life can make them lose even more hair.

If you learn some hair loss prevention methods, though, you may be able to avoid losing hair or at least make it likely that the amount you will lose if you develop that problem is less than it would have been. If you have seen other female members who have lost hair, your mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, then there’s a good chance that you could experience hair loss too.

Female pattern baldness is a hereditary condition. Many women who have the potential of producing more of the male hormone testosterone or the male pattern baldness hormone DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) -which causes hair loss in both men and women – are certain to experience this ongoing problem. Pattern baldness in women may be different than in men, but it has the same effect - thinning hair and emotional challenges. There also many other types of hair loss that women can experience. No matter what type you might be prone to, there are things you can do to make your chances of preventing hair loss good.

Preventing hair loss is possible with some lifestyle checkups and changes where needed. One of the first things to consider is your habits and environment. Do you smoke? If you do, you are putting toxins in your bloodstream regularly. Quitting will be the best thing you can do for your overall health, as well as your hair health.

Are you being exposed to toxic substances through your choices of hair care products? Hair dye, hair spray, and hair permanent solution can all contain ingredients that will be toxic for you, and can cause hair loss. Make sure you read the labels of the products you use, and that you know what they are and how they might affect you before you use them.

How is your diet? If you eat the typical American diet, which is high in simple carbohydrates, and in high fat foods, then you are putting food that is calorie dense, and nutritionally deficient into your body. That can cause hair loss because of a lack of necessary nutrients for good hair health. Making some dietary changes can make a difference in your ability to prevent hair loss. Switching to whole grains, low fat proteins, and adding more fruit and vegetables may be enough, but sometimes it is very beneficial to add a supplement to your daily routine.

Do you exercise regularly? Exercise helps increase your circulation, even in your scalp. This promotes blood flow to carry the necessary nutrients to the hair follicles, and can help with preventing hair loss.

Preventing hair loss is possible. Taking care of yourself will help. Check with your doctor today to see if you’re doing all you can for proper hair loss prevention.
