We’ve gathered four easy hacks that will help you to prevent hair loss and grow stronger, thicker, healthier hair.
Get sweaty – but wash your hair afterwards
Regular cardiovascular exercise has numerous benefits for your overall well-being and can boost your hair health. Whether you prefer running, HIIT classes or taking part in group sport, moderate to intense activity improves your blood circulation and helps to ensure that the hair follicles get a steady supply of oxygen and nutrients. Aim for 150 minutes of exercise a week – but don’t forget to wash your hair afterwards. Sweat build-up on the scalp can cause bacterial problems and even interrupt hair growth.
Add hair loss prevention treatments to your routine
There are lots of great treatments that you can add to your routine to help prevent hair loss. You can supply your body with the ingredients it needs for healthy hair growth by taking the Vitruvian Line vitamin and mineral complex from Vinci Hair Clinic. Another great option that won’t take up much of your valuable time is the Vinci LLLT Laser Cap. The fully-portable design allows you to have hair growth stimulating laser therapy whenever and wherever you prefer, with many users seeing results with just three 30 minute sessions per week.
Protect your hair from the sun
UV rays from the sun can leave hair dry and damaged, as well as causing scalp irritation and inflammation. Many health specialists now advise avoiding direct sun exposure as much as possible. Where this is not practical, protect your head by wearing a hat or scarf and applying sunscreen on a regular basis.
Vary your hairstyle
Many of us have a favourite go-to hairstyle that we turn to on most days. Whether it is a bouncy ponytail, high bun or boxer braids, it may be practical but could also be damaging your hair. Wearing the same style repeatedly creates points of tension at hair roots. This can cause breakage, especially around the hairline, or even cause a hair loss condition called traction alopecia, where hair is pulled out of the follicle. The best way to beat this problem is simple – start experimenting and mix up your hairstyles, as well as wearing your hair loose on occasion.
