Did YOU know that anything over 50 hairs shedding a day falls under the category of hair loss or hair thinning? You most likely have mineral and nutrients deficiency, and an overwhelming amount of heavy metals depleting the follicles of the essentials needed to grow thicker hair.
People lose hair for various reasons. Chronic on-going illness, nutritional deficiencies, stress, inflammation of the scalp, prescription drugs, and overuse of many medications (like chemotherapy to treat cancer) are the most prevalent causes of massive hair loss. Hair loss can also come from a parent. Often, hair thins because it is lacking the essential “nutrients“ – or because of the use of too many harsh chemicals internally and externally – so it can tend to break easily.
These are hair care tips to help protect hair, prevent further hair loss, add volume to your existing hair, and things to look for when choosing the right products suited to YOUR personal hair issues, textures, and long term goals.
1. Try Coloring for Hair Loss
If you inherited a tendency for hair loss, you likely have very healthy hair. So, your hair can benefit from permanent or semi-permanent color to give body and volume to hair.
Medications can weaken hair, causing it to break or fall out. Semi-permanent color is good in this case, too, because it does not contain ammonia or peroxide. The Plant-based Holistic product line I carry and use has neither. It will not damage hair but will give it body and volume.
If your hair is fine-textured, semi-permanent or permanent color is fine, as long as it is professionally applied. Over highlighting of the hair can get over-processed, which damages it, causing further hair loss unless there is a use of proper plant-based buffers without the use of any heat.
2. Shampoo and Condition Your Hair ONLY When Dirty
To protect hair, the best practice is to use shampoo only when hair is dirty. Because fine hair gets dirty faster, people with fine-textured hair need to shampoo more frequently – even though fine hair breaks more easily.
For that reason, fine-textured hair benefits from a good shampoo and volume-building conditioner.
I am the master of thinning hair and ways to repair prior damage. I have been dealing with it myself for over 22 years due to a medication prescription for a disease I didn’t have at that time. All this together aided in the beginning stages of ALL my personal hair loss and on-going chronic illness.
In my committed research, we are also finding that our breast implants also have been a symptom causing inflammation which also aides to the massive hair-loss and ongoing chronic illness to our entire body’s repair system. Most of the medical clients have thinning hair from stress to the internal follicles, lack of DHEA, lack of vital minerals and nutrients and damaged cells that are rapidly AGING FASTER. This SCIENTIFIC CHART shows in simple terms the “hair follicle cycle and stages.” There are many options to achieve results using holistic hair health products, supplements, and anti-aging remedies via the scalp.
Although there are good medicated products that seem to result in hair density, once the use of this product stops hair loss resumes as most contain “minoxidil.” When stopping the medications with minoxidil, there can be an adverse effect that may cause inflammation of the heart and lead to longterm heart issues. We need to treat this with natural pharmaceutics, pH balanced products, and healthy lifestyle changes, starting internally with the GUT and liver. The key to most “Dis-Ease” in the body is the lack of proper nutrition necessary to feed the scalp and internally cleanse the body to function at the optimal levels.
