Dealing With Hair Loss Naturally


You may find losing your hair extremely frightening, but fortunately there are lots of ways to cope with hair loss, prevent hair loss and even grow your hair back. In the past, loss of hair was considered permanent; however, today there are lots of treatments to choose from, and many of them are natural alternatives that can save you money while helping you have a healthier head of hair. Read on to learn more about natural ways of dealing with hair loss.


The Way You Sleep May Cause Hair Loss


One hair loss treatment that may surprise you is to change your sleeping patterns. Of course is very important to get plenty of sleep so that you'll be at the top of your form, but it's also important to be careful how you sleep. If you tend to toss and turn during the night, you may be surprised to know the your hair is taking a beating!


Try to calm yourself before bedtime and slip between the sheets in a quiet mood so as not to spend your night tossing and turning. If you are able to sleep on your back with a rolled towel under your neck it will prevent your hair having close contact with your pillow. Reducing the pressure of your head pressing on your pillow will reduce the pressure on your hair. This will help prevent breakage.


Over-Processing Is One Of The Major Causes Of Hair Loss


Another thing that contributes mightily to hair loss is the constant bombardment most people's hair takes in the form of chemicals. Virtually every hair care product available today is filled with harsh and drying chemicals and ingredients. Treat your hair gently with natural, simple ingredients found on your grocery store shelves.


Did you know that you can wash your hair very effectively with a gentle mixture of baking soda and water and condition it nicely with a dilution of apple cider vinegar and water? This simple method of hair care called “the no-poo method” is very easy on your hair. If you adopt it, you'll save lots of money and find your hair looking better than ever before within a few weeks time.


Handling Wet Hair Causes Hair Loss & Breakage


After washing your hair, be very gentle with it. Instead of combing through your hair while it's wet, try brushing and combing it thoroughly before washing. Instead of scrubbing your scalp and tangling your hair, try simply pouring your hair washing and conditioning solutions through your hair. After washing, wrap your hair in a towel for a few moments to blot out excess moisture then simply let it air dry without brushing or combing. Once it is dry, gently brush and style.


Extreme Hairstyles Are Major Hair Loss Causes


To further avoid punishing your hair, avoid extreme hairstyles. Don't pull your hair back tightly, braid it into tiny braids, hang heavy ornaments from it or wear a baseball cap or stocking cap all the time. Your hair will be happier and healthier if you wear it loose and handle it less.


When you take good care of your hair, it will look healthy, strong and beautiful all on its own. The less you do to it, the better it will look in the healthier it will be. Invest in a good haircut that makes the most of your natural growth pattern and any curl that you might have. You'll soon find that your hair looks better than it ever has!


Grow Healthy Hair With Good Scalp Care


When you treat your hair gently and keep it free of harsh chemical products and punishing treatments, you will prevent breakage and encourage healthy growth. The hair that you have will become stronger and healthier looking, and your new hair will actually be stronger and healthier. This is especially true if you take good care of your scalp.


One way to do this is by massaging your scalp gently with coconut oil before washing. If you tend to have an oily scalp, just use a tiny bit of coconut oil on your fingertips and just massage your scalp gently before brushing. If your hair tends to be dry, stroke a small amount of coconut oil throughout your hair and let it soak in for 10 to 15 minutes before washing.


Heal The Hair You Have And Grow Great New Hair!


You may be able to resolve your hair loss problems naturally without prescription treatments. It may be that your hair loss is simply a symptom of negative treatment of your hair. By using the ideas presented here, you will make the most of the hair that you have, and you may stimulate better and more prolific hair growth naturally.
