It is officially March and spring is coming soon! That means you may only have a few months before summer weather starts arriving, depending on where you live. If you are experiencing hair thinning or loss, you probably want to know how to heal it as soon as possible. Here are some things you can do in the next few months to help your hair look better than ever come summer time or vacation time!
First, you should determine what is causing your hair thinning and loss if you haven’t already. It could be caused by aging, genetics, hormonal problems, harsh chemicals in hair products, too much heat on your hair, vitamin deficiencies, or a plethora of other circumstances. If you believe it could be a medical issue, be sure to talk to your doctor.
There are some lifestyle changes to consider when healing your hair. One change you can make that is easy is to stop using hot styling tools for now and switch to gentler products. Excess heat can be detrimental to your hair’s health. Because we’re in search for certain looks or lack patience, we sometimes overwhelm our hair with heat. While the look may give us a temporary moment of satisfaction, the long-term effects catch up to us.
Another simple change is changing your shampoo and conditioner. Look for a shampoo and conditioner that is made specifically for thinning hair. If you are in need of some new products, try our Scalp Stimulating Shampoo for Thinning Hair and Volumizing Keratin Conditioner for Thinning Hair. You can also see the different flavors of shampoos and conditioners we offer here. We’re confident you’ll find something for your hair type!
Keep in mind you should also be very gentle with your hair right now! Don’t put it into tight ponytails or other styles that pull on your hair. When styling your hair, you can opt for products that will give you some much-needed volume and lift. This can hide the fact that your hair is thinning and no one will even know!
The best treatment is the use of a medicated treatment if you are experiencing hair thinning and loss that is hereditary or due to age. Our Hair Regrowth Treatment contains the active ingredient minoxidil which helps the hair regrow naturally. (Fun Fact: Minoxidil is the only approved women’s hair regrowth treatment that is FDA approved) All you have to do is apply to your problem areas two times per day. You may need to keep using it indefinitely to continue to see results. This is truly the best way to see results within just a few months.
As you use this treatment, there are other things you can do to speed the process along. When you are in the shower, don’t forget to give yourself a nice scalp massage. You could also ask someone else to massage your scalp for you. A scalp massage can help increase blood flow which can help stimulate your hair follicles. Plus, it feels so good!
Even if you don’t have any vitamin deficiencies, you should make sure to get enough nutrients in your daily diet. Start taking a multivitamin and try eating a healthier diet and drinking more water. Hair supplements can also help because they contain vitamins and minerals that your hair and body really need. If you are looking for a new supplement to try, try our KeraViatin Supplements which contains curcumin. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric and has been show to reduce hair thinning and loss.
These days there are even laser therapy treatments that have been shown to reduce hair loss. While these treatments can be expensive, they can help regrow your hair in several months.
Lastly, you should always aim to reduce your stress levels. We live in stressful times and it could be contributing to your hair loss. Do what you can to reduce your stress by saying no to certain obligations, adding more “me time” into your routine, and taking supplements that help you relax. If stress or a hormonal issue is the cause of your hair loss, know that it is probably only temporary and your hair will regrow within time.
It can be alarming to see your hair start to fall out. Many times, it is only temporary and these treatments can help. Just think of your luscious locks come summer time if you follow these treatments!
