On average, a person loses around a hundred hairs per day. This is a natural phenomenon that is part of the cell renewal process. Indeed, in this natural cycle, hair goes through stages of growth, rest, and shedding. However, due to certain external factors, such as stress, hormonal changes, or seasonal changes, hair loss can intensify. Here are some steps to take to slow it down.
The correct measures to slow down hair loss.
The use of a suitable skincare product.
Hair loss can be attributed to the use of unsuitable care products, particularly an inappropriate shampoo. To maintain the health of your hair, avoid shampoos formulated with harsh active ingredients, especially sulfates and silicones. Instead, opt for a gentle shampoo that is suitable for your hair type.
The frequency of shampoos.
It is crucial to be mindful of the frequency of your shampoos and not to wash your hair every day. Indeed, by washing your hair daily, you permanently rid your hair of the sebum that protects it. This leaves your hair more vulnerable and prone to falling out more easily.
Similarly, just as when brushing, washing your hair requires some friction. Given that moisture already weakens the hair, rubbing it during washing could potentially lead to hair loss.
A balanced diet.
A deficiency in minerals, trace elements, or vitamins can cause hair loss. Therefore, strengthening them also involves a diet rich in nutrients.
To achieve this, regularly consume fruits and vegetables. Prioritise foods rich in vitamin D, particularly mushrooms, avocados, or oily fish such as herring, sardines, or salmon.Hair follicles have vitamin D receptors (VDR: Vitamin D Receptor) which play a role in hair renewal and growth. Vitamin D contributes to hair growth by promoting the anagen phase. Its deficiency leads to hair loss.
Invest in anti-hair loss treatments.
It is possible to slow down hair loss by using treatments that promote the anagen phase, the growth phase of hair, and are capable of reducing the hair shedding phase (telogen phase).
Thanks to the peptides it contains, our densifying scalp treatment works at two levels of the hair life cycle. It extends the hair growth phase (anagen phase), and reduces the hair maturation phase (telogen phase), which is the one preceding hair loss. This treatment is effective against occasional or chronic hair loss. .
Other practices to adopt.
Some simple actions can help slow down hair loss. For instance, try not to tie your hair up too often. Use a suitable brush for styling. If possible, let your hair dry naturally. Otherwise, when using a hairdryer, adhere to the recommended distance.
Stress is also one of the main factors of hair loss. In your daily life, you may be exposed to stressful situations. Therefore, it is imperative to learn how to reduce your stress through relaxation exercises, or even better, to identify its source and address it. Simultaneously, engage in activities that promote relaxation, such as sports or yoga.
