August is National Hair Loss Awareness Month, which means now is the perfect time to visit a professional and seek help for the issues you've been having with your thinning hair. There are a number of factors that can determine the health of somebody's hair, and the most common is genetics.
However, this doesn't mean you have to take the hair loss lying down. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, some 35 million men and 30 million women are suffering from hair loss, affecting a large part of the population. If you are one of these people, getting treatment is the best course of action.
Here are a few tips to help you keep your hair intact:
- Don't comb wet hair: When you step out of the shower, you should wait until it has dried before you go to comb and style it. Wet hair is more vulnerable to damage, which is why waiting several minutes is necessary.
- Drink plenty of water: Hydration is key to healthy and strong locks. Each hair shaft is made up of about one-quarter water, so not drinking enough water will make it weak. As long as you are getting enough fluids throughout the day, it will translate to better hair quality.
- Regular massages: Massaging your scalp each day for a few minutes at a time will promote good blood circulation to your head, keeping hair follicles strong and active. Doing so with lukewarm oil will provide even better results.
