Studies (1) show 80% of women and 50% of men are affected by hair loss. Luckily, there are ways to prevent it and even reverse the damage. Try these 5 tips to prevent hair loss and maintain long, healthy, nourished locks.
You know the saying, you are what you eat? Well, they may have been on to something! A healthy diet correlates with healthy hair. Certain foods contain nutrients that help nourish the hair and stimulate growth. Conversely, a poor diet can lead to malnourishment and may promote hair loss! Keep your body fueled with these nutrients for hair growth:
The secret to the fountain of youth (for your hair) may be hiding in Yarok’s Feed Your Youth Hair and Scalp Serum. Did you know hair growth starts at the scalp? To maintain a healthy scalp, use Feed Your Youth weekly.
This serum works to stimulate hair growth, nourish a dry, itchy scalp, and reduce scalp build up. Ingredients like Sweet Orange Essential Oil soothe the scalp, while Yarrow essential oil promotes hair growth by stimulating healthy blood flow and reducing inflammation.
Apply three full droppers to scalp and hair, work through, and leave for ten minutes before conditioning! To stimulate your scalp, use your hands to massage your roots and stimulate circulation.
When you think of stress, you probably don’t think about your hair. But, you should. It’s true - high stress levels can result in hair loss. This type of hair loss is known as Telogen Effluvium. While daily hair loss is completely normal (in fact, we shed about 100 hairs per day) there is a difference between normal hair loss, and excessive hair loss. When stress levels are high, you could lose up to 300 hairs per day - yes, three times the amount.
So, what can you do to prevent the loss of your precious lame? Find stress management techniques that work for you and your lifestyle. Keep in mind, this type of hair loss is not permanent. With the right stress management treatments and some extra hair and scalp love, you’ll stimulate hair growth and bring your locks back to life. Try some of these stress-management tips:
Did you know healthy blood flow is one of the most important factors to healthy hair growth? When your lymphatic system is functioning properly, a healthy supply of blood, oxygen and nutrients is sent to hair follicles. Without sufficient blood flow, your hair doesn't have the proper nutrients to stimulate the production of new hair, let alone keep current follicles happy and healthy.
Stimulate hair growth naturally with a daily scalp massage! Scalp massages help encourage healthy blood flow to your hair follicles, ensuring they receive the proper nutrients and oxygen to stimulate hair growth. Using your fingers, rub your scalp in a circular motion on either side of your head, working your way across the entire surface of your scalp. Pressure should be gentle but firm. Try to do this daily for optimal results!
Say goodbye to the damaging effects of hot styling tools. Dead, damaged hair is a disaster for hair growth! If you want to stimulate growth, start by breaking up with your hot styling tools. Try air drying your hair! There are tons of heatless hairstyles that look as good as they will make your hair feel. If you are going to use heat (which we caution) be sure to use heat protection. Try Feed Your Ends, which doubles as heat protection and leave-in conditioner.
Bottom line: Limit your use. Heat leads to damage!
Pro tip: Get a trim regularly. Listen to your stylist (for once!) and book a regular hair trim. Cutting away dead, damaged split ends will promote new growth. Out with the old, in with the new!
