Can you imagine?

So continue reading below to discover the ultimate guide to preventing hair loss naturally and improving your hair.
How To Prevent Hair Loss Naturally
When it comes to preventing hair loss, there are a few things that need to be addressed first. Similar to any other problem that exists on earth, the only way to solve is to first identify what is causing the problem in the first place.
Now as it relates to hair loss, there are several contributing factors. Unfortunately, there may be more than one factor that is causing you to see balls of hair rolling out on your comb or brush.
Anyhow, I’ll list some of the most common factors that contribute to hair loss and then you can determine if one or more of them is the reason behind your hair fall or receding hairlines.
Factors That Contributes To Hair Loss
Factor #1 – Genetics
This is the most common factor among men and women experiencing hair loss. The sad reality is that if either your mom or dad experienced hair loss at some time, your chances of experiencing the same is very high.
Your best bet is to do everything in your power to care for your hair so that you can mitigate against hair loss. However, at the end of the day, if you do have the genes from your parents, there will be very little that you can do to prevent hair loss fully.
Factor #2 – Using The Wrong Hair Products
Not every product that you see your favorite celebrity-endorsed should be used in your hair.
We live in a world where it seems like we as a people take everything celebs do and say as gospel. But sadly, some of those products that we see these celebs endorsed are not good for you.
In fact, most of these celebs don’t even use the products themselves and are just promoting them because of the big bucks that the companies are pouring out to them.
With the rant out of the way though, using the wrong products in your hair can lead to your hair falling out. Some products have chemicals that can react with your hair adversely or may lead to thin brittle hair.
Your best bet is to only use natural ingredients in your hair and stay away from anything that you cannot pronounce.
Factor #3 – Side Effects To Medications
This is a factor that can sometimes be unavoidable. If you are sick and depending on the sickness, you will need certain medications to survive. The downside, however, is that some medications can lead to both short-term and long-term hair loss problems.
Take for instance chemotherapy – this is a drug that literally kills every cell in the body including your hair follicles. The good news though is that once you stop the treatment your hair will begin to grow back long as long as you don’t do anything to jeopardize the growth.
There are many different kinds of medication that can cause your hair to fall out. However, all you have to do is to be patient and once you stop the medication your hair will grow back.
In the meantime, please refrain from using any chemicals or products in your hair that could worsen the situation.
Factor #4 – Too Much Stress In Your Life
- Are you feeling stressed?
- Are you staying up at night considering?
Look, we all have to deal with ups and downs in our life. No one has a perfect life. Whether it is the bills you are worried about, kids or some sickness or some other thing, they all can lead to you stressing out more than you should.
Too much stress can lead to a myriad of health problems one of which includes hair loss.
Try to practice relaxation techniques on a daily basis to reduce your stress levels. Practice breathing techniques, go for a walk or do some yoga and try to get as much sleep as possible on a nightly basis.
We all wish we had longer, thicker and amazing hair that we can look in the mirror and be proud of. The good news is that we can.
However, it won’t happen overnight. You have to ensure that you are preventing the main causes of hair loss as much as possible while at the same time taking precautions to treat your hair properly.
