Updated on September 10, 2015

Are you experiencing hair loss then you can be assured that losing up till 100 hair a day is deemed normal however, if your hair fall has crossed this threshold then it is indeed time to do something about it.

To help you with this problem this article will take a look into what you can do to prevent and deal with hair loss.

1) Consult Your Dermatologist

Before you decide to deal on your own with your hair loss it is better to consult your dermatologist because your hair fall may be the outcome of a scalp related problem which only your dermatologist can identify and treat. Your dermatologist will examine your scalp so make sure you have washed your hair properly when you go for the dermatologist visit.

2) Avoid Hair Damage

Hair dryers and styling tools like straightening and curling iron all damage your hair. Therefore, all those who are experiencing hair fall are advised to stop using these styling tools immediately. Allow your hair to dry naturally rather than using hair dryer to dry these.

3) Avoid Using Excessive Chemicals

Remember hair sprays, hair dyes, styling serums, bleaching, streaking and perming all have chemicals in them that can seriously damage your hair therefore, avoid using these completely if you are experiencing hair fall.

Similarly, shampoos and conditioners also have chemicals inside them however, as you can’t do without a shampoo try using the best quality shampoo. It is best to talk to your dermatologist about the shampoo you should use.

4) Make Sure You Are Taking Adequate Nutrition

Similar, to the other organs of your body your hair also need adequate nutrition to stay healthy. Your scalp and your hair need a variety of vitamins and minerals to stay healthy. In case your diet is lacking in the important nutrition vital to healthy hair then it is no surprise that you are experiencing hair loss.

5) Look After Your Emotional Health

Your emotional health also has an important role to play in your hair loss. People who are experiencing stress or any other emotional health problems often report hair loss. In the event you are also experiencing an emotional health problem and hair loss it is best to consult your health practitioner about it.

6) Don’t Forget To Moisturize Your Hair

Similar to your skin that needs to be moisturized your hair also need to be moisturized to stay healthy and strong. Not moisturizing your hair can make them dry, brittle and weak and therefore, render them vulnerable to fall. Use good quality oil like olive and coconut oil at least once in a week and allow it to stay for a few hours on your hair before you wash it off with a good quality shampoo.

Though it may sound difficult but applying egg on your hair helps keep your hair strong and healthy as your hair absorb the protein from egg and stay soft and strong.

7) Keep Your Scalp and Hair Clean

Talk to your dermatologist and select a shampoo according to your hair type and the hair problem you are facing. Make sure you maintain your scalp and your hair clean and shampoo your hair twice a week to clean any dirt and oil build up in your hair.

8) Use a Suitable Hair Brush

Do you know your hair brush also has an important role to play in your hair health? Use a hair brush that is made from natural fibers and avoid brushing your hair from top to bottom. Instead start from the bottom gently and then move to the top.


These tips can not only help you prevent but also deal with hair loss. Remember your hair need to be taken care of in the same way as your other body organs and your skin. Therefore, if you are suffering from hair loss the above mentioned tips will help you solve the problem.
