If you are suffering from hair loss, you are not alone; thousands, if not millions of people across the country are facing similar problems with their hair. What most people don’t realize is that hair loss comes in different types and can be caused by different things.

The decreasing health of your scalp, the hair not getting enough nutrients, and other common causes could result in hair loss. The severity of your hair loss differs from person to person too. That said, there are several things you can do to counter different types of hair loss.

1. Adjust Your Diet

What you eat matters. If you are trying to counter hair loss, adjusting your diet is one of the first things you can do. Some food items contain a sufficient amount of protein and nutrients to support healthier hair growth, with protein being the most important nutrient to consume.

This is because protein is considered an essential nutrient that keeps your hair – and other parts of the body, including your skin and your bones – healthy. Adjusting your protein intake to make sure that you consume enough of it is important.

Other than from food items, you can also consume proteins that are designed to be bioavailable, which means they are absorbed better by the body. Sources of protein like hydrolyzed collagen are now available as a protein powder that you can add to your diet.

2. Stay Hydrated

The one thing that many people neglect to do when trying to counter hair loss is staying hydrated. This is actually an important step. Your hair and scalp need enough water to remain healthy; water is also a crucial element to better hair growth in general.

Staying hydrated is good for your hair. You need to drink enough water throughout the day to prevent your scalp from getting too dry. At the same time, staying hydrated allows your hair to maintain its natural beauty and glow.

Additional benefits of staying hydrated include faster hair growth and better recovery from hair loss. If you are suffering from loss of hair patches, drinking plenty of water throughout the day will help you recover those lost patches faster.

3. Watch What You Do

What you do to your hair can affect its growth and overall health in different ways. Exposing your hair to chemical products excessively can severely damage the exterior layer and make your hair weaker, which usually leads to more hair loss.

The same is true with high temperatures. The next time you use a hairdryer or a curling iron, be sure to set the temperature correctly to avoid damaging your hair. Other treatments damage your scalp or weaken the roots of your hair to some extent, and they must be avoided as well.

There are some bad habits you want to leave behind too; staying under the sun for too long, not getting enough sleep, smoking, and leaving your hair untreated after exercising or spending the entire day outside are among the things you want to stop doing to keep your hair healthy.

4. Try Hair and Scalp Supplements

Last but not least, consider using natural products to treat your hair and scalp from the outside. With your diet adjusted, using natural ingredients like Aloe Vera or Jojoba to strengthen your hair is highly recommended. This combination allows you to fight different types of hair loss effectively.

Utilize these four tips and you will be able to counter different types of hair loss effectively. While these tips don’t specifically treat a certain type of hair loss, they are incredibly effective in strengthening your hair and maintaining the health of both the hair and the scalp over a longer period of time.
