How to prevent hair fall?
Most of us think about preventing hair fall only after hair loss becomes a major setback in our lives. It works out a lot easier both emotionally and financially if it is taken good care of at an early stage itself. In fact, the truth is – preventing hair loss is much simpler than treating hair loss. But as we say better late than never, it could definitely give fair results when started. Here are some tips to follow to keep your hair healthy:
1. Follow a healthy lifestyle
Eat Nutritious food rich in keratin, vitamin B, Zinc, iron, calcium and especially proteins. Hair is made up of proteins and requires food that are rich in proteins to bring health and luster to the hair. Drink at least 3 liters of water a day and avoid stress.
2. Take care of your hair
Dirty hair and scalp are more inclined to getting affected by hair loss and other severe hair ailments. Taking good care of hair by using good hair products like shampoos and conditioners is very important. Always dilute the shampoo no matter how good and herbal the product is before washing your hair. Also concentrate on cleaning the scalp and hair roots. Make sure while applying conditioner, your focus must be the ends of your hair which is maximum prone to split ends, dying and are more vulnerable than the damage that occurs out of exposure and pollution these days.
3. Avoid things bad for your hair
Artificial chemical colouring, hot ironing, styling, perming, hot oil treatments, pulling the hair tight into buns and pony tails or braids etc. Pulling the hair tight especially make the hair follicle weak and comes off resulting in poor hair growth.
4. Adopt simple Home treatments
Conditioning of your hair with natural conditioners like egg, honey and curd, beer, and other natural conditioners adds up to stronger and shinier looking hair.
5. Avoid blow drying your hair
Blow drying dries up the scalp and damages the hair follicles as a result. It is important to dry your hair partly and then use blow drying techniques by lowering the heat setting to the lowest.
Finasteride is the first and only FDA-approved drug most hair transplant surgeons generally recommend.

Iron Supplements: Most women end up in having iron deficiency which could be a cause for their hair loss. The hair doctors may test your iron level, singularly if there has been a history of anemia in the patient’s family, or heavy menstrual bleeding. Iron supplements are mostly recommended if a woman’s iron level shows up to be less than 70 nanograms per milliliter. Iron supplements add to the strengthening of the hair and stimulate better hair quality.
