4 Tips to Avoid Hair Loss

Hair loss among men and women has become an epidemic. In fact, 80% of Americans will face hair loss at some point in their lives. Board certified dermatologist, Dr. Marnie Nussbaum has excellent tips on what we can do to combat hair loss, promote hair growth and other hair revitalizing tips. {Product provided for review/feature consideration}

Dr. Nussbaum offers these 4 tips to help fight hair loss:

  1. Revitalize from the inside out. Eating foods like kale, walnuts, almonds, tuna and salmon that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, iron and protein can lead to a healthier, happier scalp. Since about 3% of your hair shaft is made up of omega-3 fatty acids, they're vital to keeping you scalp nourished.
  2. Maintain proper scalp care. Incorporating a pH balanced wash into your daily regimen like Sebamed Scalp Activating Shampoo will naturally support scalp circulation - which is essential for hair growth and thicker-looking hair. ($14.99, SebamedUSA.com) Also, massaging your scalp for 10 minutes 2-3 times a week in the shower can loosen skin flakes, product residue and natural oils, as well as increase blood flow to the scalp to help promote new hair growth.
  3. Promote healthy hair growth. Try trimming your hair every 6 weeks and incorporating an all-natural supplement into your routine to stimulate new growth. The new Aviva Advanced Hair Nutrition is a blend of handpicked 18 botanical and nutraceutical ingredients (including Biotin, Vitamin B5, Folic Acid, Iron, Zinc, and Selenium, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Ashwagandha and Silica) that provide the nutrients your hair needs to boost strength, build length, and restore balance. ($59.99 for a 30 day supply, AvivaHair.com)
  4. Additional tips: Avoid harsh hair dyes, switch up your natural part and air-dry hair whenever possible. Dramatic changes in hair color and heat damage can further dry out hair follicles, causing breakage and hair thinning. Hair also tends to lie flatter when brushed repeatedly in the same direction - For a more voluminous look, try changing the direction of your part.
Do you suffer from hair loss? Or perhaps you're like me and just want to improve on the length of volume of your tresses in general! Try out these tip {I am!} and hopefully they'll help you get the head of hair of your dreams!

Until next time...
