Hair Thinning - Treatments That Can Help Manage It!

Waking up to a pillow covered in hair can be scary. Losing a little hair each day is normal but when your hair begins to fall in bunches, you need to be concerned. Thankfully, there are lots of simple ways to treat hair fallHere are a few different types of treatment that can help deal with hair loss-

Eat Right: One of the most common causes for hair loss is a deficiency of certain vitamins and minerals. When you do not eat a well-balanced diet, your hair is the first to be affected. Thus, when you see hair falling, you need to start paying attention to your diet. Eat fresh foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals. You need to pay special attention to foods rich in proteins, vitamin B12, iron and zinc. This can be found in nuts, beans, leafy green vegetables, fish and lean meats.

Massage Therapy: A massage not only relaxes the mind and body but also improves circulation. Blood circulation is important for hair health. This is because the better the blood flow, the more nutrients will be available to the hair follicles. Scalp massages are best with warm oils. This can be done just before washing your hair or the night before so that the oil is left overnight. Also, try and massage your scalp when shampooing your hair.

Laser TherapyLaser therapy has a number of uses including being a treatment for hair fall. Laser treatment helps treat hair fall by reducing the inflammation in the hair follicle roots that is keeping the follicles from regenerating. Bi-weekly laser treatment can improve hair density in 6 months.
