After being warned by your parents that “don’t laugh, you’ll get it too,” the day finally came. You are starting to lose your hair like your parents, and millions of people around the world did. But don’t worry, we won’t leave you hanging. We’ve compiled a list of 9 Ways to Prevent Hair Loss that will get you through this and keep you out of the wig shop.
1. Relieve Your Stress
Even though losing your hair is a very stressful event, the best thing you can do is stay calm. Actually, stay calmer than normal if you are under constant pressure. Undergoing constant pressure such as a demanding work schedule, going through a divorce or any of the other events that cause stress can drastically slow hair growth. The first step you can take in getting your hair to grow back and reducing stress is to learn how to meditate and remove yourself from stressful situations as much as possible.
2. Consider Hormones
When we picture someone losing their hair, we often picture a man, but it is important to remember that women go through it too. Some women are genetically predisposed to having female-pattern hair loss and can be made worse by types of medication such as birth control. If that were not enough, it seems that menopause will accelerate hair loss. If this is the case, it may be time for you to go to the doctor and see if there are any hormonal treatments available that can reduce hair loss.
