The Approach For Preventing damaged hair and Hair Loss
Hair is a part of your body, more specifically, hair follicles. And when you take your time to nurture it, the result would be a better prevention of hair fall.
A gentle approach is essential in order to preserve the remaining hair. Tension, friction and exposure to high temperatures can all weaken the hair and its roots. That’s why you should be kind to your hair:
Tip #1: Wash your Hair with Warm Water, not Hot.
A nice warm shower can, not only get rid of dirt and grime build-up but combined with a soft scalp massage also stimulating the blood circulation which support hair growth. On the opposite end, when you shower or bathe in hot water, you’re essentially reducing your chances of retaining hair. The scalp is sensitive, and when it comes in contact with hot water, it destroys the skin barrier and causes dryness, both of which are unhealthy for the hair.
Try to avoid excessively hot water (maximum of 37 degrees) when washing your hair.
Tip #2: Avoid That High-Temperature Option On Hair Dryers
Just like hot water, high temperatures of air can also be detrimental to your hair’s health. The higher upper settings of your hair dryer should be avoided at all costs since it causes brittleness and breakage in a significantly short time span. That being said, hairdryers are not all bad. The warm setting can be good way to quickly dry hair without fully removing the natural moisture of your hair.
Tip #3: When Drying with a Towel, Don’t Rub — Pat Instead.
We’ve all been there, vigorously rubbing the hair right down to the scalp feels great after a nice shower. But logic tells us that it’s a sure-fire way to promote breakage, especially with weaker than average hair.
Instead, pat it dry. This way, no strand gets bent or pushed down. It’s a simple tip, but effective nonetheless.
Tip #4: Use The Right Products
Backed up by research, Alpecin Liquid Forte uses caffeine as its ingredient to reduce hair loss.
Studies prove that caffeine inhibits the negative effects of testosterone on hair growth and it balances out the resultant lack of energy. It extends the growth phases of the hair roots back to the normal length so that hair can grow even into old age. The daily use of Caffeine Liquid Forte protects your hair roots from the effect of testosterone which trigger hair loss. The hair roots are thus strengthened, and hair loss is reduced.
