7 Ways To Prevent Hair Loss

September 4, 2019



Hair loss is a common issue for both men and women.

While there are many types of hair loss, androgenic alopecia is the most common since it affects both sexes.




It can be emotionally devastating to experience hair loss, especially at an early age. However, there are many ways to prevent hair loss from worsening or even happening in the first place.




7 Ways to Prevent Hair Loss


Visit hair loss clinic

For a start, you can visit a hair loss clinic in Singapore to undergo treatment.


You can also prevent it from getting worse by monitoring your lifestyle. Utilizing both methods in tandem should give you a higher chance of success.



Manage stress

Stress is one of the main culprits of hair loss.


Studies show that stress and hair loss are strongly related. It prevents hair from growing and could even cause excessive shedding.


Different methods appeal to and work differently for different people e.g. meditate, exercise, read or talk to a friend.


You probably already know what helps you unwind and relax. You just have to make time for it!





Massage your scalp


The easiest way to prevent your hair from shedding is to massage your scalp.  It has been proven to boost hair growth, stimulates blood flow as well as reduces stress.


Massage your scalp as you take a shower or bath after you apply shampoo on your hair daily to promote hair growth.



Rethink your diet


Foods high in minerals and vitamins such as eggs, berries, fatty fish, avocados, and nuts are proven to strengthen hair.


Include in your diet foods rich in nutrients like iron, zinc, and vitamin B12 to get the best possible results.



Be mindful of your hair products


Don’t just settle for the brand name and its reputation; as some hair products use toxic chemicals. Potentially toxic chemicals include parabens, sulphates, and formaldehyde.


Consult with a specialist – identify if these chemicals are harmful to your hair and if they are causing your hair loss.




Avoid tight hairstyles


If you have long hair, avoid tight hairstyles such as ponytails, cornrows, or braids.


Tightly fixing your hair can result in traction alopecia, a condition where the hair is under extreme tension, resulting in damaged hair follicles.



Avoid excessive smoking and drinking


It’s universally known that excessive smoking and drinking can damage the body. However, its effects on hair growth aren’t as well known.


Studies have shown that smoking and drinking are linked to hair loss. Cigarette smoking impacts blood flow, while immoderate drinking can nutritional deficiencies.



Expert Advice


For more efficient methods of hair loss prevention, consulting with a doctor is the ideal way to go. Visit a clinic and consult a specialist to undergo hair loss treatment in Singapore.
