Hair Loss - It's Your Own Fault

Many people complain about hair loss. Little do they know that poor lifestyle choices could be the biggest factor why they are getting thin up top.

There are many causes of hair loss, but if you aren’t keeping your body in check with a common sense health regime then more than likely you’re contributing to your own hair fall. This is especially true if:

1. You don’t exercise. If you do not exercise then the chances are tiny capillaries supplying blood to the scalp are becoming smaller and smaller. This shrinkage reduces the capillaries capacity to supply nutrients to follicles for hair growth. Eventually the follicle will recede then permanently die. At the very least go for a brisk walk once or twice a week, better yet go cycling or swimming.

2. You are still smoking. Not only does smoking cause capillaries to shrink but it also causes the damage to the DNA in the hair follicles. Damaged DNA cannot make the necessary proteins for new hair growth. Not only that, but also smoking causes a rise in free radicals. Free radicals are a destructive force in the body and can cause inflammation. Inflammation is strongly linked with hair loss.

3. You don’t eat healthily. If your body is not receiving enough nutrients to sustain itself efficiently then it will sacrifice functions like hair growth to keep more vital functions running. A healthy balanced diet means eating plenty of protein, healthy levels fats (cut down on saturated fats, but increase the healthy ones) and getting carbohydrates from mainly complex sources such as brown rice and whole grain bread. Just as vital are vitamins and minerals, at the very least you should be getting a total of five fruits and vegetables a day – the more the better. Adding a daily multivitamin tablet on top of that will help too. Other health food stuff like green tea may also help prevent balding.

4. You don’t relax. Stress is a massive factor in premature balding. Anxiety causes stress hormones to be released into the body, some of those hormones are devastating to hair growth. Sleep is a big factor in this, getting adequate deep sleep can really help balance your hormone levels. Yoga and meditation are two other great ways to try and relieve stress.

There are many more things you can do to prevent hair loss, some big things and some not so big things. For example did you know regular shampoo causes hair loss? Visit Chris Bhurrut's for more advice on hair loss.
