Aging is an inevitable aspect of life, often accompanied by changes in our appearance, particularly concerning hair loss or thinning. While these changes are common, there are several tips, tricks, and techniques available to mitigate them, allowing us to embrace the aging process gracefully.
Take these proactive steps to preserve your hair health and prevent hair loss.
Nourish Your Hair with Nutrition: Your hair needs various vitamins, minerals, and proteins to grow. Fortunately, a well-balanced diet can supply these nutrients to your hair. Try incorporating leafy greens, nuts, fish, eggs, and fruits to encourage hair growth and strength.
Avoid Excessive Styling: Put down that curling iron or straightener, as excessive use of heated styling tools can severely damage your hair potentially contributing to hair loss. Instead, embrace your natural hair or opt for lower heat settings and protective spray.
Use Safe and Gentle Products: There are tons of hair products on the market nowadays, but not all of them are good for your hair. For example, sulfates are in lots of shampoos and conditioners, but they can strip your hair of its natural oils, causing damage. Make sure to ask your physician for recommendations on safe and gentle hair products to keep your hair looking lush longer.
Manage Your Stress: Did you know that stress can contribute to hair loss? It’s true. As we age, stress levels tend to rise. Take time to practice stress-relieving techniques, such as yoga, meditation, and deep breathing.
While these preventive hair loss tips are great, they aren’t as effective for those who have already started to see hair thinning with age. Breakthroughs in nonsurgical hair restoration options such as PRP injections, laser cap therapy, and nutritional supplements can work wonders to encourage new hair growth. Hair restoration treatments, like follicular unit transplants and follicular unit extraction are great options to maintain a full head of hair as you get older. These surgeries utilize hair follicles on parts of the scalp that are resistant to hair loss, transplanting them to areas needing treatment.
