Fortunately or unfortunately we live in a time where the vast number of treatment options available for hair loss can be overwhelming.
Following are some quick guidelines that can help to stop hair fall.
Diagnose the causes- Treating hair loss is something like opening a door lock. It needs the right diagnosis to unlock the solution. Therefore to stop hair fall it is necessary to diagnose the exact cause and treat it.
Keep hair care simple- People who obsess over hair care are often the ones that suffer hair damage and start losing hair at a younger age. Dry hair or curly hair is any day better than having no hair. Sometimes the best thing you can do to your hair is leave it alone.
Maintain the right hygiene- Choose a good shampoo and keep your scalp and hair clean by shampooing at regular interval. There is nothing like a standard scalp and hair regime that is right for everyone. Avoid sharing combs, towels, pillow covers, helmets and hair bands. If they are contaminated they can easily transfer the infection to your scalp.
Don’t fall prey to free advice- Friends, family and sometimes even strangers seem to have miracle solutions. More traumatic than the actual suffering is the free advice from people who seem to know it all. When it comes to hair, trust only a Trichologist, a hair specialist.
Check for nutritional deficiencies- Food for good hair can only be suggested on the basis of two parameters – one is on the basis of deficiency and second on the basis of a particular food having specific healing power. A blood test can help diagnose nutritional deficiencies.
