Top Causes Of Hair Loss and Breakage And How To Fight Them

Hair loss is a very common problem, and can happen for many reasons. Some of the most common causes are stress, dieting or poor nutrition, hormonal changes (such as pregnancy), alopecia areata (autoimmune disease) and heredity.

Suffering from hair loss or breakage?

It’s important to remember that you don’t have to be experiencing hair loss for it to be a cause of concern. There may not seem like there’s anything wrong at first because sometimes we just shed 100 hairs per day

There are different ways to fight hair loss and hair breakage.
1.Keeping a healthy scalp is one of them. This means treating dryness or dandruff asap with the adequate care for your type of hair.

2.In addition, taking vitamins and a good diet rich in iron are also helpful.
One thing that helps many people is cutting down on caffeine. If you feel like it’s just not enough to lose weight or maintain your energy levels without the coffee, try adding some healthy snacks or eating more often instead of relying on caffeine all day long.

Whatever type of hair loss is bothering you, there are steps you can take to stop it from progressing any further.

3.Too much heat. makes your hair weaker and more prone to breakage over time.  It might be as simple as getting the correct moisturizer for your hair type or not using high heat on dry brittle hair.

People who are prone to losing hair often find themselves feeling like they’re completely out of control and powerless.

It’s hard not to feel helpless when you can’t stop your hair from falling out in clumps or keep the bald spots at bay.

4.Alopecia. There are many things that people with alopecia can do to help their condition before it worsens, as well as some ways that those struggling with other types of hair loss might be able to halt the progression of their symptoms by treating your hair follicles with care.

5.Forgetting to deep condition. Deep conditioning treatments leave behind a smoothing film that protects the strands and keeps them condition and moist and that won’t wash off for a couple of days or so.

When you are experiencing hair loss, you may not be able to pinpoint the exact cause.

There is no one singular trigger for this condition and most often it is the result of many factors.

It’s important to look at all aspects of your life and find out which could be triggering or contributing to hair loss.
Sometimes a simple lifestyle change can make a big difference in how quickly your symptoms improve or go away altogether, so these tips will help you identify what might be causing your hair loss.
