5 Best Ways to Stop Hair Loss 

17 Best Hair Loss Treatments for Men in 2022

Hair loss affects millions of Aussies. Most people shed about 100 strands of hair a day. However, these strands are replaced by new strands of hair. 

When fewer or no strands of hair grow to replace the lost strands, you will begin to notice the thinning of your hair or a receding hairline starting to appear.

Hair loss has various causes which include stress, genetics, pregnancy, side effects from medication and underlying health conditions. 

It can also be caused by a combination of factors. Hair loss can be chronic and can occur gradually or, in a short period of time, with sudden noticeable changes. 

Whatever the case may be for you, here are some tips to help you stop hair loss and improve the health of your hair. 

Be more mindful about styling hair

One of the great things about hair is that it is flexible and can be styled in different ways to achieve different looks. This, however, does not mean that we shouldn’t be careful about how we treat our hair. 

It is important to avoid hair styling practices that can cause damage and weakening of hair. Avoid hairstyles that pull your hair too tight and away from your scalp. This can cause hair breakage as well as loosen the bond between the hair and the scalp. 

You should also avoid heat styling as much as possible. Excessive use of curling irons, hair straighteners, and hair dryers can result in the hair becoming excessively dry, and damage to the hair can occur. 

Another styling method to avoid is the use of chemicals such as bleaches, dyes, and highlights. These styling methods involve the splitting of the molecule known as keratin and thus cause permanent damage to your hair.

Invest in hair growth products

One of the most effective ways to prevent hair loss is to invest in products that are designed to prevent hair loss and stimulate hair growth. Currently, there are a host of hair care products available in the market that also facilitate hair growth. 

Below, we outline three haircare products that are well-known for how effective they are at preventing hair loss and promoting healthy hair: 

Bondi Boost 

BondiBoost Hair Growth shampoo is a great investment if you’ve noticed any signs of hair loss. This Aussie-made shampoo is free of parabens, DEA agents, and sulphates. 

It is packed with minerals, vitamins, and other ingredients including rosemary oil, horsetail extract, and peppermint oil that will revitalise your hair shafts. 

Watermans Grow Me Shampoo 

This shampoo is specially formulated to encourage fast hair growth. It’s perfect for when you have noticed significant thinning of your hair and want to not only prevent further hair loss but also restore your hair quickly. 

It contains ingredients known to encourage hair growth including rosemary, niacinamide, lupin protein, argan oil, and biotin. This shampoo is also free of parabens, palm oil, and sulphates. Further, it is vegan and cruelty-free. 

Nioxin Systems Kit 2 

Nioxin Systems Kit 2 offers you three hair products for a complete protective haircare regimen. This system features a cleansing shampoo, a conditioner, and a treatment. The Systems Kit 2 strengthens your hair and improves the health of your hair and scalp due to it being specially designed to reduce hair loss as a result of breakage. 

The complete hair care system provides you with all the products you need for a healthy hair cleansing routine while providing the protection that your hair and scalp need. 

Change your diet 

A change in diet can help to prevent hair loss. You should focus on consuming foods that are rich in proteins and vitamins to replenish the nutrients that are needed for healthy hair. 

A well-balanced diet will help to address issues such as deficiencies, hormone imbalances, and other health problems that may be causing hair loss. You may want to take it a step further and supplement your diet with minerals and vitamins that can help to improve your hair health. 

Biotin and zinc have been shown to be especially beneficial for hair growth and maintaining hair health. Other dietary supplements to consider taking include those that contain vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and iron.

Use a soft brush

Brushing your hair with a hard brush too often can result in hair breakage and loss. However, brushing your hair with a soft brush made from natural fibres can have the opposite effect. It can help to smooth out the hair and prevent tangling. It will also help to condition your hair and help spread the natural oils produced by the scalp over the hair shaft. Your hair will also look much healthier. 

Engage in meditation and exercise

Many people start to experience hair loss as a result of high-stress levels. Studies have shown that stress prevents the growth of hair. It follows that hair that is shed is not replaced. 

You can prevent this by engaging in exercise and meditation to reduce your stress levels and improve your overall health. 

Use the tips above to promote the growth of healthier hair & stop hair loss in it’s tracks.
