Prevent Excessive Shedding
While some hair loss may be related to genetics, hair loss is also caused by your lifestyle and some of your daily habits. Changing these habits, such as what you eat, what you put on your head and how you care for your hair, can help slow the process of losing hair and keep your scalp and hair follicles healthy.
Four simple changes can get you on your way. First, improve your circulation; loss of circulation can cause your follicles to prematurely release your hair at the root, which causes balding. Second, eat a well-balanced diet rich in vitamins and amino acids. Hair requires certain nutrients and vitamins such as protein and vitamins C and A to grow and remain healthy, so sticking to a diet rich in these will ensure healthier hair with minimal breakage. Third, take vitamins to counter nutritional deficiencies. Lastly, add garlic, whether in your diet or shampoo product, it is easily absorbed, stimulates the hair follicles, and causes hair growth.
