Are you battling hair loss? Do you see strands of hair collecting around the shower drain every day as you step out of the shower? Do you feel more and more hair is coming out easily even if you’re gently brushing your hair or running your fingers through? Does your hair feel like its thinning out and it losing its shine and lustre?
It truly is an awful feeling & can be an extremely demoralising experience whether you’re a woman or man suffering from hair loss. We’ve all been there at some point in time and it can feel like your self-confidence is being shattered.
However, always remember the more YOU stress, the more your hair will fall! So, the first step is to relax and take a deep breath as we’re here to give you a few pointers on how you can get your luscious locks back!
Firstly, it is important to identify why this is happening to you – Is it due to a change in weather or a shampoo not suiting you? Or is it because of an underlying cause that has gone undetected till now?
There can be many reasons such as a change in your hormone levels due to pregnancy, a certain medicine/supplement causing hair loss as a side effect, too much vitamin A in your bloodstream or even Polycystic Ovaries Syndrome (PCOS). Reasons could also include diet related where you’ve either had dramatic weight loss over a short period of time or your lacking protein from your diet.
If your hair fall is extreme and its happening at a fast pace then the first thing you should be doing is going to a doctor and a dermatologist to figure out the root cause. They can recommend you strong hair supplements and treatments to help you thicken your hair and reduce your hair fall.
One such treatment that has taken the beauty industry by storm is the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment. It’s a non-surgical option that uses your own blood platelets to stimulate hair growth in areas that you are losing hair, which is then injected into your scalp. It sounds scarier but it is mostly pain free!
If PRP isn’t for you then you can try other alternatives such as trying to enrich your diet with foods that are packed with nutrients. Try to incorporate eggs into your diet including other foods that have a high source of biotin and protein. Nuts, fatty fish like salmon, spinach, berries and meat are all strong sources of nutrients and can help not only your diet but also promote hair growth.
Different hair oils are also a great way to thicken hair, add shine and reduce and prevent hair loss. Vatika’s cactus and garlic hair oil, caster hair oil mixed with almond oil and black seed oil are all great hair oils that deeply condition the hair. The key is to have a lot of patience and to be consistent! Try which hair oils suit you and stick to it for a few weeks to see if you can see a difference
Nobody wants fine limp hair or hair that lacks a luscious shine. Try to improve your diet and lifestyle as well incorporating a weekly routine of oiling your hair and massaging it to increase blood flow! You’ll have thick hair in no time!
