Here’s a serious question for you:
What is your biggest fear regarding your hair?
It’s a question maybe we don’t think about enough…
… but here at L’ange, we have a pretty good guess what it is.
You see, it’s always been very important to us that the styling products and tools we offer here are designed just for you.
That means they don’t just satisfy your styling desires…
… they also fight your heaviest hair-related concerns.
That’s why we always encourage you to email us about your most pressing hair issues.
And based on the responses we’ve gotten so far, it seems like one fear overshadows all the others.
In fact, it’s the single most common question we get from L’ange ladies just like you:
“What should I do if I’m losing my hair?”
Make sure to choose styling products that contain ingredients to nurture, protect, and revitalize your hair.
Also, you'll want to take note of these four crucial hair-loss prevention tips.
Following any or all of these steps should powerfully reinforce your efforts to fend off hair loss.
1. SEE A DOCTOR FIRST
This might seem like a no-brainer, but it’s so essential, we’re including it anyway.
Before you attempt any sort of hair-loss treatment or remedy, it’s highly recommended you discuss the situation with your doctor.
This is because hair loss is a common symptom of a range of health conditions… everything from gluten intolerance, to thyroid problems, to lupus.
There are also a considerable number of pre-existing genetic conditions that can lead to hair fall. 1
So, if persistent hair loss is a problem for you, your first move should be to consult with your primary care physician or gynecologist.
This is so you can rule out the possibility that your hair loss is being caused by any sort of condition that may demand in-depth, medically related treatment.
2. COMBS AND BRUSHES: CHOOSE AND USE THEM WISELY
How selective are you when choosing the hairbrushes and combs you use?
Because you may be surprised to learn that your combs and brushes… and how you use them… can have a real impact when it comes to preventing hair loss.
To keep from pulling your hair, causing breakage and other damage, you want to choose a brush specific for detangling hair. For this, we recommend our Siena Flexi Vented Brush or Siena Wide Vented Brush that designed to be used on wet hair are extra gentle!Finally, it’s crucial to clean your hairbrushes and combs at least once a week. That way, any dirt and dust collected on your combs won’t get back onto your hair. 2
3. ADJUST YOUR DIET
It’s another aspect of maintaining healthy hair that’s not discussed as often as it should be…
… but what you put into your body can be just as vital to the wellness of your hair as the styling products or tools you use.
With that in mind, foods that offer significant nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to help prevent hair loss include:
- Most seeds and nuts
- Sweet potatoes
- Yogurt 3
Likewise, there are a number of foods containing ingredients that have been shown to aggravate or accelerate hair fall. For your hair’s benefit, limit or eliminate your consumption of:
- High-mercury fish like tuna and mackerel
- Brazil nuts
- Artificial sweeteners like aspartame 4
4. GIVE YOUR SCALP A MASSAGE
It’s true: A quick, easy-to-perform scalp massage can be one of the best things you can do for your hair.
That’s because the massage promotes circulation to your scalp. This keeps your hair follicles well-nourished… and ready to grow thick, nutrient-rich hair!
Massaging the scalp has also been shown to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression… both major contributors to stress-related hair loss. 5
All you do is work your scalp with your fingertips for 5 to 10 minutes, once or twice a week, for the most consistent, positive results.
When it comes to your hair, there’s nothing more frustrating than looking down at your pillow, your hairbrush, or your shower drain…
… and seeing strands or even whole clumps of loose hair.
But if you implement these four hair fall prevention techniques, the result should be resilient, reinvigorated hair…
… the kind that stays on your head, where it belongs!
