How to Stop Hair Fall

Finding too many stray hairs on your pillow, in your comb, or even on your car seat can really knock your confidence. From everyday heat styling and day-to-day brushing, to lifestyle and chemical processes; there are many factors that can cause hair fall. The good news is, you don’t have to put up with weak, fragile, damaged hair that falls out every time you touch, brush or comb it. Here are our favourite tips and tricks on how to control hair fall.

1. Just relax!

Believe it or not, the major cause of hair loss is stress. We all lead increasingly busy lives and this can lead to rising stress levels that effect your body’s hair production. The more stressed we get, the more testosterone we produce, which can effect not only hair growth but also the hair’s ability to absorb vital nutrients and vitamins. It’s easier said than done but look at ways you can minimise stress in your daily life. Consider yoga, sports, mediation; anything to help relax your mind and body.

2. Examine your diet

A healthy, balanced diet can really help to strengthen weak hair. Stick to fresh vegetables, red meat and nuts, and any other foods that are high in protein and iron; these will all encourage healthy hair growth. Try to avoid acid making foods like dairy products, breads, and potatoes, as they can change the pH value of your body. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water too, as you’ll need to keep hydrated if you want improve your hair’s appearance.

3. Try a conditioning shampoo

If you’re looking for an effective hair fall treatment, look for a shampoo and conditioner that targets your most damaged areas to help strengthen and restore your hair. TRESemmé Hair Fall Defense Shampoo helps reinforce your hair’s strength and prevents hair fall due to breakage.* TRESemme Hair Fall Defense Conditioner evenly conditions and detangles distressed hair, transforming weak strands into shiny and healthy-feeling tresses.

4. Balance your hormones

Just like the rest of your body, hair goes through many changes throughout your lifetime. Your hormone levels rise and fall normally, but pregnancy and menopause can really upset the balance and be one of the main reasons for thinning hair. As with stress, there are several natural ways to make sure your hormone levels are balanced, from eating healthy fats, taking vitamin and herb supplements, to cutting down on caffeine and alcohol. However, it’s definitely worth speaking to your doctor if you’re worried that you have a significant imbalance of hormones.
