Most people think that hair loss problems are reserved for men, In fact, hair loss is a common side effect for women who have reached menopause, as the “golden years” are generally brought on by a hormonal shift that decreases estrogen–the hormone most responsible for promoting hair growth and in the postpartum phase. Hair loss that begins with a widening part and progresses to overall thinning could be a sign of androgenetic alopecia, a condition that impacts millions of men and even women in their 40s and beyond.
Staring at a clump of hair in your hands—or noticing that your part seems wider than normal—can be scary. First, while hair loss can signal that something is off with your body, losing a few strands in the shower doesn’t always mean something is wrong. Losing 50 to 100 strands of hair a day is considered normal (Don’t worry a normal scalp has around 100,000 hair strands). However, if you start losing more than that, then it’s time to pay attention to your hair and scalp.
There could be many causes of hair loss which include diet, mineral deficiency, medications, stress, pollution, and genetics. Putting on a cap, hat or helmet could also be another reason in men. Here’s our list of 7 effective ways to help reduce or deal with hair loss.
- Load up on beauty nutrients
Enrich diet with protein--Eating lean meats, fish, soy or other proteins promotes hair health and in turn, helps curb hair loss. If you are experiencing hair loss then lessen your alcohol intake because drinking alcohol reduces hair growth. So decrease or eliminate alcohol to see an increase in hair growth.
- Manage stress
Studies in the past have found medical evidence to link stress with hair loss. De-stress yourself; one of the ways of doing it is by practicing meditation. Alternative therapies such as meditation and yoga not only reduce stress but restores hormonal balance.
- Take care of your scalp
Stretching time between shampoos is good for your hair because it allows the natural oils on your scalp to hydrate your hair, it minimizes daily (and damaging) heat styling, and it can help elongate the life of salon color. However, what’s good for your hair may be less good for your scalp, especially if your shampoo-stretching strategy involves using lots of dry shampoo or other products to maintain your style. The buildup of those styling products on your scalp can have the unintended effect of clogging hair follicles and limiting the ability of strands to sprout from your scalp. So, how do you balance the needs of your hair with the health of your scalp? Make sure when you do wash, you’re very thorough. This means, at least twice a month, use products that deeply clean and break down excessive buildup. To ensure your deep cleanser is really getting your scalp skin super-clean, massage your shampoo in for at least thirty seconds, then let it sit on your scalp for another minute before rinsing away.
- Get Your hormone levels checked
Hair loss is a disorder that can happen to both men and women. Where in the case of women several circumstances and bodily changes may give rise to excessive hair fall. In males, the majority of cases of hair fall happen due to male pattern baldness which is a hereditary disorder.
There are several hormones that you can screen in case of having massive hair loss. They are Prolactin, Testosterone, DHEA, luteinizing hormone and follicular stimulating hormone.
- Brush your hair gently
Tips to brush your hair :
- Avoid brushing wet hair.
- Only brush twice a day at the most.
- Don’t brush your hair from the root.
The last point refers to the fact that brushing from the root to the end can lead to breakage and pulling out hair if you encounter knots. Hairstylists recommend gripping the hair shaft and first brushing the last inch or two. Once that section is free of knots and tangles, move further up the hair shaft and brush down again. Repeat the procedure, clearing tangles, until you brush the full length of your hair. Since the ends and the middle are smoothed first, the risk of tangles leading to hair being pulled out is decreased as compared to starting at the root.
- Get lots of Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a naturally occurring nutrient that is in certain foods. People can also find it in supplements and other products. Several shampoos and conditioners contain vitamin E. People can wash their hair with vitamin E-fortified shampoo and conditioner as they would with regular products. It is essential to follow the directions on the information label when using special products and supplements.
Vitamin E is present in several types of food. These include:
- leafy greens
- nuts and seeds
- vegetable oil
- fortified breakfast cereals
- Regenera Activa & PRP Therapy at Lumina can help to grow your hair back!
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment that Lumina doctors use to accelerate healing in various areas of the body. It may help restore hair growth. To understand how PRP works, it is important to be aware of the role that platelets play in healing.
Platelets are a component of blood, along with red and white blood cells. When a person sustains a cut or wound, the platelets are some of the body’s “first responders” that arrive to stop the bleeding and promote healing.
Researchers theorized that if they could extract concentrated platelets and inject them into damaged areas of the body, they could accelerate healing.
To produce PRP, a medical professional will take a blood sample and put it into a machine called a centrifuge. This machine spins at a rapid rate, which separates the components of the blood. The medical professional then extracts the platelets for injection.
PRP contains a range of growth factors and proteins that speed tissue repair. As some types of hair loss result from damage to hair follicles, researchers initially hypothesized that PRP could help regrow hair by reversing the process that occurs in androgenetic alopecia.
Since then, PRP has become a popular method of restoring hair growth. And another alternative for hair loss is Regenera Activa.
Regenera Activa is an advanced hair growth treatment that uses regenerative cells extracted from the “micro-grafts” harvested from your scalp to stimulate the other areas that are losing hair. Regenera Activa is the ideal hair loss treatment for patients with early and mild-moderate hair loss that is localized. Using regenerative cells and growth factors extracted using the patented Regenera Activa treatment, we can slow down hair loss and combat the miniaturization of affected hair follicles.
Regenera Activa has gone through extensive clinical trials across the world, and is listed in US FDA, CE certified and the medical devices used – N4SA and Rigenracons are listed as Class A medical devices by HSA. These ratings assure patients of its safety and effectiveness. Lumina Aesthetics Clinic is proud to introduce this technology to Indonesia. We work closely with the developers of the technology in Barcelona and are the Key Opinion Leaders of Regenera Activa in Indonesia.
So, try these seven ways to stave off hair loss and keep looking younger and healthier for longer. Start your hair journey with Lumina Aesthetics Clinic.
