he renewal of strands that occur naturally through their daily loss sometimes develops into a problem when the volume of curls decreases noticeably. How, then, to stop a woman’s hair loss? First you need to understand the reason, because it can be elementary accumulated fatigue or lack of vitamins. But the source of the problem is often serious hormonal changes, as in menopause, for example.
The main causes of hair loss
The most common cause of hair loss is a deficiency of vitamins and minerals. The deterioration of nutrition usually affects the condition of the strands in spring, when, after winter and due to a lack of fresh vegetables and fruits, the diet becomes rather poor, and the available reserves in the body go to maintain it during the cold period.
Often the cause of hair loss are stressful situations and chronic diseases that sooner or later exhaust the body. And if in chronic diseases it is simply necessary to take care of the curls, in the case of vitamin deficiencies and disorders in the nervous system, you must first eliminate the cause and thereby stop its effect on health. Of course, this does not exclude competent and careful care.
Prevention of hair loss is the reception of complexes containing vitamins D, E and A, as well as selenium and zinc. It is not recommended to use aggressive agents for dyeing curls. For washing you need to choose safe shampoos. Masks should be regularly made to help improve nutrition and hydration of hair on the head, strengthen the roots and restore the structure of the rod. You can use special medical or folk remedies for loss.
According to statistics, one person out of ten addresses a doctor with the problem of hair loss. Most take the situation for granted or temporary phenomenon, losing strands more and more. But it should be understood that if you start treatment quickly: as soon as the number of hairs falling out daily increases noticeably, you can still restore the follicles and return at least part of the hair.
Most often, people are looking for the answer, how to stop hair loss at home, without going to the doctor. Specialists dealing with the problems of hair and scalp do not believe in the effectiveness of treatment with folk remedies, therefore, most often they prescribe a medication course or specialized enhanced care for curls. But the bulk of the recipes still help to improve the condition of the strands and scalp, although it does not eliminate the main cause of loss.
Folk recipes for hair care
The recipes for eliminating hair loss use components that primarily increase blood circulation in the scalp, only in this case the nutrition of the hair shaft and epidermis can be improved, since all trace elements are delivered with blood. Some of them are absorbed from the means for washing and masks, which are also used to care for curls.
