It’s considered normal to lose between 50 and 100 strands of hair a day, but serious hair loss is a sign that something is amiss. The problem might be genetic, a reaction to stress, lifestyle, poor nutrition, dehydration or cigarette smoking (yet another reason to quit). While moderate drinkers can hold on to their hair, regular guzzlers are at risk. Alcohol is known to deplete the body of its iron supply, impeding absorption of zinc. Alcohol also causes dehydration, stopping the body from absorbing vital nutrients. Since hair is almost one-fourth water, excessive alcohol will invariably leave it brittle, inviting breakage.
According the American Hair Loss Association, by age 35, about two-thirds of men experience some degree of balding, and by the age of 50, about 85 per cent of men have noticeably thinner hair.
But if you’re only 19, 20 or 24 years of age, it could be that you’re not ready for a life with thinning hair or no hair at all.
What’s the solution?
Naturally, making some changes in your lifestyle choices will help. Things like getting seven hours of solid sleep, adjusting your diet to include healthier food choices such as spinach, almonds, walnuts, milk, leafy greens, oats and tuna. Did you know that green tea is effective because it blocks out Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the culprit hormone that causes hair loss?
And ladies are not exempt from hair loss. Because women have more stressful lifestyles, their bodies produce more androgens (male hormones), causing an increase in DHT. Also excessive coloring is at fault. The heat and chemicals weaken the hair causing breakage. Also irresponsible use of oral contraceptives can cause hormonal imbalance over time.
Feeding your hair can help with vitamins B3, B5, B9, E, zinc, iron and magnesium. Fish, broccoli, soy beans, eggs and fortified cereals are excellent foods for healthier hair.
So, you’ve made some lifestyle changes, adjusted your diet, getting more shut-eye and still your hair follicles are behaving badly. What can you do?
When you feel you’ve run out of options, it’s time to see the savvy innovators who have spent ten years of intensive research and development to create a solution to balding – Dallas NeoGraft.
