Tips for Helping Reduce Hair loss

More than 50 percent of women experience balding and by the age of 50, about 85 percent of men are balding, according to the American Hair Loss Association.

It’s normal to lose about 50-100 hairs per day. Hair grows at the bottom of a follicle from under the skin. The blood in your scalp goes to the follicle and supplies oxygen and nutrients to the hair root, which helps your hair grow, according to Healthline. A lot of times, hair loss is genetic, however, there are things you can do to help prevent hair loss or stimulate hair growth over time. This might mean taking simple steps such as avoiding heat-styling, avoiding bleaching your hair, or even making sure you’re eating enough protein. Here are some tips and tricks you can take to help with hair loss, whether you’re a man or a woman.

Hair Serums

Hair serums using vital ingredients such as biotin, zinc, collagen, niacin, caffeine, and more may help improve the growth of hair, and in some cases, help lost hair grow back. This all depends on the person, of course. Nothing is guaranteed. However, if you’re looking for a more natural way to grow your hair this may be the way to go.


Massaging your scalp, surprisingly, may help with hair growth too. A scalp massage can promote not only relaxation, but according to a small study in 2016, it may also boost the follicles on your scalp. In the study, it was found that after 24 weeks nine of the men in the study had thicker hair than at the start – after massaging for 4 minutes each time.

And while there wasn’t a hugely noticeable difference at the end of the study, it’s shown that a scalp massage may help dilate blood vessels beneath the skin, and with that can help lead to thicker, stronger hair that’s less likely to break off.


And last, but certainly not least, try using a less abrasive shampoo. Seems simple enough, however, there are a lot of shampoos on the market that can strip the moisture from your hair and cause damage or breakage, leading to more hair loss. Here’s a formula that we have that’s super gentle and can condition the hair as well! The formula creates a hair shampoo that’s formulated with Jojoba Protein and Brassica Oil (Conditioning Shampoo with Sugarcane ). Mild surfactants clean the hair and don’t strip the hair of its natural oils.

With the right home care, you may be able to help support good scalp health which will benefit healthy looking hair. This is all case-by-case and you should consult with a dermatologist/doctor before perusing any major changes to your hair care routine.
