Losing 50 to 100 strands of hair each day is normal, according to BeautyDen.com, but losing more than that or noticing your scalp is suddenly more visible in a bright light can be disconcerting. There are several steps you can take to minimize, slow or even stop your hair from falling out.
Lack of proper nutrition can cause you to lose your hair, according to the Mayo Clinic. Eating a nutritionally balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables can help reduce hair loss. In addition, low iron counts in your blood can also cause hair loss; therefore, eating iron-rich foods such as lean red meats, leafy green vegetables and soy products is important to preserving your hair.
Becoming dehydrated can cause you to lose significant amounts of hair, according to Hairfinder.com. Drinking plenty of clear water can restore your hair to its previous shine. If you don’t like to drink plain water, you can add sugar-free flavor packets to each bottle before drinking it. These flavor packets can be purchased at most grocery stores. You can also increase your water consumption by drinking sugar-free lemonades, teas and juices.
A lack of vitamins can cause your hair to fall out. In today’s busy world, eating a perfectly balanced diet can become difficult. Taking vitamins that provide high amounts of B vitamins can promote hair growth and reduce hair loss, according to holisticonline.com. In addition, magnesium supplements can help you keep your locks.
