The right actions to slow down hair loss.

The right actions to slow down hair loss.

On average, a person loses about a hundred hairs per day. This is a natural phenomenon that is part of the cell renewal process. Indeed, in this natural cycle, hair goes through phases of growth, rest, and shedding. However, due to certain external factors, such as stress, hormonal changes, or seasonal changes, hair loss can intensify. Here are some steps to take to slow it down.

The use of an appropriate skincare product.

Hair loss can be attributed to the use of inappropriate care products, particularly unsuitable shampoos. To maintain the health of your hair, avoid shampoos formulated with harsh active ingredients, especially sulfates and silicones. Instead, opt for a gentle shampoo that is suitable for your hair type.

The frequency of shampoos.

It is crucial to pay attention to the frequency of your shampoos and not to wash your hair every day. Indeed, by washing your hair daily, you permanently rid your hair of the sebum that protects it. This leaves your hair more vulnerable and prone to falling out more easily.

Similarly, just as when brushing, washing your hair requires some rubbing. Given that moisture already weakens the hair, rubbing your hair during washing could potentially lead to hair loss.

A balanced diet.

A deficiency in minerals, trace elements, or vitamins can cause hair loss. Therefore, strengthening them also involves a diet rich in nutrients.

To do this, regularly consume fruits and vegetables. Prioritize foods rich in vitamin D, such as mushrooms, avocados, or fatty fish like herring, sardines, or salmon.Hair follicles have vitamin D receptors (VDR: Vitamin D Receptor) that play a role in hair renewal and growth. Vitamin D helps to contribute to hair growth by promoting the anagen phase. Its deficiency leads to hair loss.

Investing in anti-hair loss treatments.

It is possible to slow down hair loss by using treatments that promote the anagen phase, the growth phase of hair, and are capable of reducing the hair shedding phase (telogen phase).

Thanks to the peptides it contains, our densifying scalp treatment works at two levels of the hair life cycle. It extends the growth phase of the hair (anagen phase), and shortens the maturity phase of the hair (telogen phase), which is the one preceding hair loss. This treatment is effective against occasional or chronic hair loss. .

Other practices to adopt.

Some simple actions can help slow down hair loss. For instance, try not to tie your hair up too often. Use an appropriate brush for styling. If possible, let your hair air dry. Otherwise, when using a hairdryer, maintain the recommended distance.

Stress is also one of the main factors of hair loss. In your daily life, you may be exposed to stressful situations. Therefore, it is imperative to learn how to reduce your stress through relaxation exercises, or even better, to find its source and correct it. In parallel, engage in activities that promote relaxation, such as sports or yoga.
