How much hair loss is normal?

Potential reasons for your hair-loss
Did you know using random har products could be one of the reasons you are facing hair loss? I cannot stress how important it is to check the ingredient list before you decide to purchase any hair product, the pros of this is it can save you MONEY and most importantly SAVE your locks!
Confused on which products are right for your hair type? Do not worry check previous blog on ‘hair types. Using random hair products can have a detrimental impact on your luscious locks and your scalp!
Next, hair loss could be caused by having a deficiency in vitamin D, zinc and iron! These nutrients play a vital role when it comes to achieving healthy hair and a healthy scalp so, if you lack any of these you could face hair loss! However, do not worry these deficiencies can easily be helped through the right foods and vitamin tablets! Just remember consistency is key! Not eating enough protein per day can be a reason for hair loss… (it is recommended to eat 1 gram per kg bodyweight everyday).
Weak hair follicles
We haven’t finished yet my besties, another reason for hair-loss could be due to your hair follicles being too weak and not strong enough to grow the hairs! Surprising I know… many of you reading are probably thinking wow, I thought hair would just grow on it’s own as who would have ever thought hair follicles could be weak and need some attention!
Well besties, look no further, let me explain. In fact I have a solution to help you strengthen your hair follicles… how? Well, its beneficial to topically derma-roll and oil with the right ingredients for your specific hair and scalp… what are you thinking? Let me tell you, you do not need to go and make your own oils or hunt genuine derma rollers. Just check my website (shop). I can tailor your custom hair oils to meet your hair type and scalp needs! Couldn’t get better than that right? Let’s transform our hair together besties and tackle these hair loss issues!
How to prevent hair loss
Now, let me explain how to prevent hair loss occurring initially!
This may be obvious but you must:
- wash your hair brushes regularly… many are wondering why am I stating the obvious but it is so important to ensure your brushes are clean! Many of us forget due to our busy schedules or day to day lives but please wash your brushes!! To help set reminders in your phone so you do not forget!
- Limit hair tools to ONCE a week, I know we all love straightening, curling or blow drying our hair as we love big luscious locks but besties over-styling can lead to hair loss! Also besties, ensure you use a heat protector every-time you use heat, never miss! Custom hair care solution is a strong heat protecter you can order from the website. Protecting your locks is significant and can highly reduce your hair fall out.
- Using gently scrunchies is essential in your hair journey as using harsh tight elastic bands can put a strain on your hair and pull and tug leading to excessive hair loss.. horror!
- Scalp massages.. did you know scalp massages are amazing at stimulating hair growth? Massaging your scalp leads to stronger hair by activating the hair follicles.
- One of the best ways to reduce hair loss massively is through using oils that are specific to your hair type and needs! As mentioned in previous blogs, I provide custom hair oils that can be used at least once a week! These customised unique oils can help tackle your hair issues.. wow, amazing right!
