Why Is My Hair Falling? A few weeks ago, I was watching TV and saw a movie that was made in the early 70s. I didn’t even like the movie (it was toxic because of the violence) but I noticed how thick and lustrous all of the actor’s hair was.
Is it just me. or does everybody out there notice how thin and stringy most people’s hair appears these days? What happened to people’s hair? In the hair days of the 60s and 70s people truly did have thick and shiny hair. Not just young people, but older people too! What happened?
Why Is My Hair Falling? Its only natural for us to want to prevent hair loss and hold on to our hair. There are everyday things that we can do (and not do) that will help prevent hair loss because remember, it is far easier to hold on to your hair than it is to re-grow it. good hair loss remedy focuses on the following areas:
- How much stress have you experienced in the last three months?
- How consistent are you in taking a B-100 complex on a daily basis?
- What is your general protein intake?
- How consistent are you in taking a good multivitamin complex each day?
- How polluted is the place where you live?
- If you are male, do you trickle when you urinate? What is your Prostate Specific Antigen Number (PSA)?
- If you are female, when was the last time you were told that you had ovarian cysts or a hormone imbalance?
- How much sugar do you intake on a daily basis?
Why Is My Hair Falling? I think hair loss is a combination problem caused by:
- High sugar/refined carbohydrates, which poisons the blood and choke off oxygen to the hair follicles, which cause them to die early and fall out
- A deficiency of adequate protein which is a building block of hair (keratin protein)
- Chronic vitamin and mineral deficiencies
- Hormonal imbalances, such as elevated DHT in men (which can be brought down nicely with 160 mg. twice daily of saw palmetto extract) and hormonal imbalances in women, which need to be properly diagnosed.
My Top Ten Tips For Good Hair Loss Prevention:
- Always blow-dry your hair on low heat (or cool) setting to avoid making it brittle and weak.
- Always drive in traffic with the re-circulating button on in your car to block as much pollution as you can from entering the car. Heavy metals found in car exhaust and industrial pollution gobble up minerals and vitamins in the body, which are necessary for good health, not to mention valuable enzymes, which activate healthy cell division. Ever notice how much older and lackluster people look in big cities?
- Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair in the shower before you rinse out the final hair conditioner from your hair. Take your time and do not jerk on any tangles. Wet hair is fragile but it is far easier to get the tangles out with the conditioner in, than later. This is especially true if you have fine hair.
- When re-touching the roots of your hair, take a small plastic bowl and a plastic spoon and divide half of the creme developer and half of the tint found in the box and mix together in the bowl. Treat only the roots where you see gray or faded color. Not only do you limit your exposure to this carcinogenic cocktail, but you will save your hair from being further dried out from the high alcohol found in the hair dye. Only put color on your whole head every third month. You will also cut your hair color bill in half.
- Avoid tight hair buns and narrow hair bands. Let your hair relax at night and use only wide hair bands to hold up your hair. Avoid tight hair clips too.
- Wear a hat outside year round to prevent the sun from frying your hair and wear a hat in the winter to prevent the high frigid winds from whipping your hair and dryer it out prematurely.
- In the wintertime, run a humidifier at night in your bedroom to moisturize your hair, skin and lungs.
- Choose hot curlers that employ salt and steam to set the curls instead of dry heat electric curlers. Not only will your set last longer, but your will find the curls silkier and smoother.
- Before finally going to sleep at night, brush your hair at least five times with a natural bristle brush to distribute natural oils to the ends of your hair.
- The foundation of good hair loss prevention is sound nutrition and correcting common vitamin deficiencies.
How does Silicon help In Growing Hair?
Of particular use is the mineral silicon an ultratrace mineral. It is the main constituent of sand. It is sometimes referred to as silica. Silica boosts the tiny fibers that make up hair and other fibrous tissues in the body. It is also an important part of bone calcification. It is referred to as the cosmetic mineral in Europe.
Silica is also found in raw root vegetables (like turnips), raw, unrefined grains and the skin of chickens. Most of us don’t eat any of these things unless we are a gopher, a horse, or a chicken hawk.
So I have found a vegetable source of silica that boosts your hair. You can intake through medicine but trust good brands on this item because cheap brands may contain heavy metals.
My Hair Loss Remedy is as follows:
- Daily consumption of a comprehensive multi-vitamin with meals.
- One 100mg. Vitamin B complex capsule or tablet daily, instead of just biotin because the B vitamins work in concert and you should not take just one B vitamin, but a balanced complex of all of these water-soluble (never stored in the body) delicate vitamins.
- Protein intake: Females 40-50 grams. Males 60-75 grams. (Excessive protein intake also causes hair loss.)
- 1-2 cups of green tea daily as a potent antioxidant.
- Green vegetable/fruit drinks found in quart size in the fresh vegetable section of your grocer to detoxify your blood and oxygenate your tissues.
Bear in mind that the hair loss you are experiencing today has occurred due to the stress you endured three months ago. It takes 90 days to turn hair loss around. If you don’t see significant improvement in the amount of hair in the drain in your shower, its time for some medical hormone tests or gynecologist consultation. Not everybody has male pattern baldness.
