When it comes to hair loss, in most cases genetics is driving the bus. If you come from a long line of family who has lost their hair then chances are you are heading in the same direction. But that doesn't mean that there is nothing we can do to exert some control over the situation. Hair loss prevention measures do exist; implementing some into your daily life may significantly impact the onset and severity of hair loss.

Hair, like any other part of our bodies, requires proper care and nutrition in order to thrive. Taking care of your hair - in several capacities - can be a large part of hair loss prevention. Avoid damaging your hair by minimizing color and other processing. When you can, let your hair air dry rather than using a blow dryer. Use a comb instead of a brush to reduce breakage. And use a good shampoo and conditioner designed to help strengthen hair.

Scalp massage has been shown to have quite a bit of success in hair loss prevention. Frequent, five to ten minute scalp massages with any number of oils will stimulate nerve endings and strengthen hair follicles. Go online to find those oils that have shown success with hair loss prevention such as almond oil, coconut oil, and even castor oil.

Diet is incredibly important in hair loss prevention. What you are putting in your body will inevitably encroach upon all areas of system function. If you are eating a poor diet you are only increasing your chances of hair loss and a myriad of other health problems. Proper nutrition - such as a diet based on whole, natural foods - will ensure you a lifetime of health. And will greatly support your hair loss prevention efforts. Build your diet around fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and lean meats. Avoid highly processed foods, excessive caffeine and alcohol, and tobacco products.

Hair loss prevention is possible with a committed focus on the whole body. Take steps to increase your overall level of health and take extra care of your hair. You may be surprised at the results.
