How to prevent hair loss

Whether it’s long and curly or short and sleek, when our hair looks and feels gorgeous, we do too. But with most of us losing 150 strands naturally everyday, losing it can be a concern for many women. If you want to protect your tresses without the hassle of hair loss treatments, follow our tips on how to prevent hair loss below and keep your hair full of life.

    Be gentle with wet hair.

    Our hair is at its most vulnerable when it’s wet, so it’s important to take extra care after washing. When towel-drying, be gentle: press, dab and gently squeeze your hair instead of rubbing, which can cause damage leading to hair loss. Opt for a wide-tooth comb when brushing wet too

    Switch up your hairstyle. 

    When it comes to full-looking hair your hairstyle can make a huge difference. Think about asking your hairdresser to add layers, which can help make your hair appear thicker and longer

    Everyone knows eating well can improve physical health, but did you know it can help strengthen your hair too? To give yours the nutrients it needs, eat plenty of protein-packed foods like chicken, fish and dairy products

    Protect from heat and chemicals.

    Heat styling, chemical treatments and colouring can cause damage that leads to breakage, so keep your hair strong enough to take it. Use a protecting serum when heat styling and use a range that cares for chemically damaged hair

    Try scalp massage.

    Massage is said to help with hair growth, since it stimulates blood circulation. Apart from that, it’s also a great way to relieve stress (which is also a common cause of hair loss) so if you ask us, it’s a win-win situation
