Huge hairs on the pillow? Make sure it is an abnormal hair fall and not a simple hair renewal. And if so, take the appropriate measures. A diet focused on strengthening hair can be your great ally. But it's not the only help. Let's see some more!

1/10 Prepare a plate of lentils

Lentils are an important source of iron that, combined with vitamin C, helps increase your metabolism, circulation, and oxygenation of cells. Which is essential for the healthy development of the hair follicle.
  • Extra: Remember that the lack of iron is usually the cause of fragile and weakened hair and hair loss.

2/10 Watch your emotions

Stress, anxiety or nerves related to the experience of complicated situations can trigger hair loss.No treatment is usually necessary since in most cases it resolves with the passage of time.
  • Extra: Stress alopecia presents a generalized hair loss, without a localized area, decreasing the density of the hair in a homogeneous way.

3/10 Maybe it's the genes

The so-called androgenic alopecia (AGA) is what is inherited through the genes of the father. In such cases, the use of medication usually helps.

  • Extra: It is the most common type of alopecia in our society. It usually affects most men, although it can also occur in women.

4/10 Question hormone

The hormonal changes both during pregnancy and when reaching menopause can be the cause of hair loss.
Also changing contraceptive pill or stop taking it can be the origin of alopecia.
  • Extra: In this case, your gynecologist will know how to advise you on the best contraceptive method for you or on the specific hormonal treatments you may need.

5/10 Too many vitamins?

Consume an excess of vitamin supplements can cause hair to fall.
The abusive consumption of some vitamins, such as vitamin A, can cause some hair disorders, among which is hair loss.
  • Extra: The problem can be solved by eliminating the consumption of vitamin A.

6/10 Treat scalp massage

Not only is it a most pleasant remedy, but it can also be very suitable for combating alopecia since massages increase blood flow to the hair follicles and strengthen the roots.

  • Extra: Among the oils that can be used for this purpose we find coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil, castor oil, and rosemary oil.

7/10 Medical treatments with side effects

Some medications, or certain treatments with radiotherapy, can be the origin of the temporary hair loss because they attack the hair that is in the growth phase.

  • Extra: In most cases, it is transient alopecia, and only in exceptional cases produces permanent alopecia.

8/10 Anemia, the most common female cause

If you take a few days when you feel especially tired, it is likely that your blood iron levels (iron-deficiency anemia) are below healthy.
One of the consequences of the deficit of this mineral is hair loss. And, if there is little iron, there is little hemoglobin that can perform its function of transporting oxygen to tissues.
Extra: The first thing is to do an analysis to check your levels of hemoglobin and ferritin (the amount of iron in the blood). From there, your doctor will decide the most appropriate measures.

9/10 delivery post Hair Loss

After giving birth, specifically 3 or 4 months later, estrogen levels decrease, responsible for anchoring the hair to the scalp.
This is the reason, why during this time your hair falls out.
  • Extra: This type of alopecia usually disappears 6 months after delivery, although in some cases it can be prolonged by stress, lack of iron or the presence of the hormone prolactin during the period of lactation.

10/10 Do not abuse the hair dryer

Heat weakens hair proteins. Heating and drying constantly can cause brittleness, which can cause hair loss.
Natural drying is best for the hair, so try to dry it naturally more often than with hot air.
  • Extra: If you use a dryer, select the low-temperature position and do not get too close to the hair to avoid damaging the scalp.
