In this day and age, it is common for consumers to reach for the nearest pill, product or palliative for nearly any uncomfortable condition before considering if they themselves might be causing their condition by some remediable behavior. Baldness is no different, and before one runs off to buy a box of Rogaine or other hair-growth stimulant, it would be wise to consider one’s diet and health habits first.
It is generally thought that people start to go bald as they get older, when they retire and start to think about their Aviva annuities and going on cruises. But this isn’t always the case, loosing your hair can happen at any age, to both men and women. It is understandable that people feel the need to resort to treatment, as it can be embarrassing for some people. The following advice will help your hair growth and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
A Healthy Diet
The first ingredient necessary for healthy hair is a healthy diet. If you are consuming too much processed, chemical-laden food and not enough fresh vegetables, fruits, and grains, your hair is going to suffer. It might get thin, it might fall out altogether, or it might just get dry and listless, but it will suffer to some degree. In the absence of a genetic history predisposing to early hair loss, a healthy scalp will grow healthy hair…and an unhealthy scalp will go bald pretty quick.
What Makes A Healthy Diet?
What can you do to combat hair loss? Eat a healthy diet, drink plenty of water, and take a daily vitamin rich in Omega 3 Fatty acids. Also important is eating sufficient protein and consuming regular quantities of silica, a nutrient most easily gained from oats, rice, sunflower seeds, and green cabbage. Biotin, a nutrient found in high levels in eggs, salmon, and sardines, is also essential for strong hair that will not break easily or fall out due to weak roots. All of these combined might serve you much better than Rogaine by actually addressing the problems causing your hair loss rather than trying to force hair growth from an unhealthy scalp.
In the end, genetics has a lot to do with hair loss and whether an individual loses their hair at a young age. But following these simple steps can help to preserve your hair if all else is in order.
