5 daily things that are making your hair fall out
We always want to know the reasons for our hair loss. Most of us are aware that one of the main reasons for hair loss in men is hereditary or genetic. We keep surfing the net to know various reasons for hairfall. Have we ever paid any attention to our daily routines which have the potential of damaging the hair and making it easy to break and fall off?
So let’s put an insight in to these 5 daily habits which can only make you lose more hair and the hair fall solution to reduce the risks of causing it.
- Hot Steamy Showers
Hot showers dehydrate strands leading to dry; brittle hair that’s more prone to fall. Not only the hair’s protective oils are washed out but your scalp starts producing more oil to keep up with its moisture which can damage the root and lead to additional shedding of hair. So always wash hair with tap water or lukewarm water.
2. Mishandling of Wet Hair
When our hair is saturated with water it is the most fragile and prone to breakage. Combing hair or brushing hair immediately post shower or rubbing it aggressively i.e. towel drying are enough to storm up the shedding of hair.
Habits like smoking and alcohol are known to accelerate hair thinning. Due to increasing stressed lifestyle the incidence of men smoking and consuming alcohol is on a rise. This also can cause hair loss. Trying to de-addict gradually will greatly help to control the hairloss and save the existing hair.
4. Sleep disturbances
Disturbed sleep and insomnia is a known triggering factor for hair loss. Keeping awake until late night or not getting enough sleep does not allow the hair to repair and grow. It will not only slow down the hair growth but will also cause hair fall. So catching up on restful sleep is very important.
5. Sun damage
A job that demands you to be on field all the time keeps your head sun bathing. Harsh sunrays can eat away the strength and elasticity of your hair. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can cause the cuticle to weaken and break, resulting in brittle hair that can lead to hair loss. Similarly wearing a helmet all the time causes the hair to be under traction causing the hair strands to become weak and also if your sweat a lot it will case alot of dandruff. So wearing a 100% pure cotton scarf before wearing a helmet is advisable so that it absorbs the sweat as well as prevents the pulling of hair.
An ounce of prevention and taking appropriate precautions can save all the existing hair and help to give you better treatment results.
