Anyone preoccupied with hair health should be concerned first about his or her scalp. The hair follicles, which are the only living part of your hair, reside under the skin on your head, and these follicles decide when, if, and how much hair to grow for you.
So, what can you do to make your scalp as healthy as possible? It’s easy.
Start giving yourself a daily or at least regular scalp massage. For reasons not totally understood, this seems to help you grow hair. Maybe the gentle stimulation tells your hair growing genes to wake up and turn on. Maybe the increased blood flow to the hair follicles is enough to get them some extra nutrients. Whatever the reason, scalp massage does appear to help, and there’s some real science supporting it.
Hair follicles need nutrition just like every other part of you. Get enough calories, and try to eat a balanced diet that includes all the required vitamins and minerals. If you eat a colorful variety of unprocessed foods, you will be well on your way.
Choose an Appropriate Hair Style
We’ve mentioned before that there’s a special type of hair loss called Tension Alopecia. This type of hair loss is caused by a hair style that puts continuous tension or pressure on your hair follicles by severely pulling the hair in one direction or another. This type of tension on the hair damages the follicles. So, the simple solution is don’t do it. Ever. Bo Derek looked great with a thousand hair braids and beads, but her hair follicles suffered.
Try Some of Our Scalp-Nourishing Products
We have several products. The Shampoo and the Activator each contain a proprietary blend of ingredients that includes DHT (dihydrotestosterone) blockers. Remember, DHT is a hormone and some people have too much of it in the scalp. DHT blockers protect the hair follicle environment, so the follicles keep growing hair.
These are easy things you can do to give yourself a healthy scalp and the best chance at keeping your hair. When you’re ready to start treatment for hair loss, we’re here for you.
