hi elly.ono, i used to worried about my daily hair loss in the past (still think about it sometimes), but after some readings about hair loss, made me to understand and except it better.
Basically most people routinely lose between 70 and 150 hairs from their scalp each day, mainly through washing, brushing, and combing.
You're right about the food consumption, because not only hair is very much vulnerable to the stresses and strains of your everyday life but also gets affected by the type and quality of food that you eat.
HEALTHY HAIR TIPS:
- Before washing your hair, always brush/comb it. It will help remove all the dirt from your hair, while shampooing.
- Give an oil massage to your scalp at least once in a week. Keep the oil overnight and wash your hair in the morning.
-Use less amount of shampoo, or even only use shampoo every other hair wash.
- Use lukewarm warm for washing your hair and for the final rinse, try to us as much cool water as possible.
- Avoid using hair dryer as much as you can. Rather, squeeze the wet hair; blot it with a towel and then let it air-dry.
- Never ever use a brush in your hair when it is wet, let it dry first. Otherwise, you might end up losing a lot of your hair.
- Cut down on refined, processed and canned foods. Stick to fresh food items as much as possible.
- Stay away from hair styling products as much as you can. Avoid exposing your hair to extremely hot or cold conditions.
- Get your hair trimmed every six to eight weeks, so as to prevent as well as get rid of split ends.
