Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
But, there are some hair care and hair loss solutions that don't involve reaching into your purse for your credit card. Expert Dr. John Kahen M.D., medical director of Beverly Hills Hair Restoration, offers these 6 tips to achieve and maintain healthy hair.
"You don't always have to buy every latest and greatest hair product to achieve and maintain healthy hair. Simple changes in lifestyle and every day hair care regimens can curb dry, damaged, or thinning hair," said the medical director of Beverly Hills Hair Restoration.
Here are the hair transplant clinic's six tips to achieve healthy hair and prevent hair loss:
1. Look to your diet
Look at your diet to determine if you are eating a well-balanced diet and if you are lacking in any vitamins or nutrients. Nutritional deficiencies take a toll on the body physically, and not getting enough vitamins and nutrients can affect the health of your skin and hair. Vitamins like biotin, Vitamin E and even pre-natal vitamins can assist with keeping hair healthy.
2. Wash hair regularly to prevent hair loss
Wash your hair regularly to prevent build-up and eliminate the potential presence of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) from forming in the hair follicles if you are already noticing hair loss. The word "regularly" varies for everyone - but if you tend to use styling products, it's best to wash everyday or every other day to avoid clogging the pores in the scalp and causing build-up.
3. Avoid alcohol-based hair products
Try to eliminate or use very little of alcohol-based hair products. Hair products containing alcohol evaporate very quickly, but take with it the natural oil production in the hair that prevents dryness. Look for "alcohol" in the ingredients that can also be masked as "alcohol denatured", "methanol" and "isopropyl".
4. Limit the use of heat styling
Try to put down the blow dryer and curling iron occasionally to avoid breakage and dryness since excessive heat can weaken the follicles. Get a blow dryer with different heat settings and use a diffuser to target the air flow.
5. Avoid hairstyles that pull on the hair
Avoid hairstyles that pull the hair back tightly, such as a too-tight ponytail or hair extensions. Constant strain on the hair can cause breakage and even hair loss if worn often enough.
6. Take a day off
Pick one day each week to give your hair a break, from styling, heat - all of the damaging habits that you do to your hair everyday. Take a Sunday and swear off the blow-dryer, curling iron and hair extensions to give your hair a rest.
