Defeat Hair Loss: Your Ultimate Mane Maintenance Plan

We are all about flexing the perfect haircut and having a good hair day every day. But what do we do when we start noticing our mane is not quite as lush as we'd like it to be? That's where hair loss comes into play. Don't sweat it though, it's super common and happens to almost everyone at some point. Basically, hair loss occurs when the hair follicle shrinks over time, leading to thinner and shorter strands until they stop growing altogether.  

But fear not! Our hair is pretty resilient and has this fantastic ability to grow back. Yup, it's like a mini superhero on our scalp. This whole process of hair growth is a fascinating journey involving different stages, from sprouting new hairs to shedding old ones. So, let’s look at all the hair loss causes and find the best hair loss treatment for you! 

Uncovering the Causes of Hair Loss  

There are a lot of reasons for hair fall and it's usually a mix of factors rather than just one thing. Here are some common culprits: 

Genetics: One of the most common hair loss causes is our genes. If your parents or grandparents experienced hair loss, there's a chance you might too. Oh, and as we age, our hair naturally thins out. 

Hormonal Changes: Fluctuations in hormones, like during pregnancy, childbirth, menopause or thyroid disorders, can mess with the hair growth cycle.

Stress: Ever noticed your hair falling out more when you're super stressed? Yep, stress is yet another of the many hair loss causes and can push hair follicles into a resting phase, leading to more shedding than usual. 

Poor Nutrition: Your hair needs certain nutrients to stay healthy and grow strong. If your diet lacks essential vitamins and minerals, your hair just might suffer. 

Medical Conditions: Conditions like alopecia areata, fungal infections of the scalp and certain autoimmune diseases can cause hair loss along with the medications you may take. 

Overstyling: Too much heat styling, tight hairstyles, or harsh chemical treatments can damage the hair and lead to breakage. 

Hair Care Routine For Hair Loss 

For a holistic hair loss treatment, begin by customising your hair care routine for hair loss. This way, it will help minimize hair loss and promote healthy hair growth and that’s pretty much our goal here.

Gentle Cleansing 

Start by using a mild shampoo and only wash your hair every two to three days a week to avoid stripping away the natural oils that keep your hair healthy. If you want a shampoo that also reduces hair loss, try the TRESemmé Hair Fall Defense Shampoo. It does everything the usual shampoo does like cleanse the scalp, turn your hair soft and all that jazz. But it also has keratin protein which is good for strengthening the hair follicles and preventing hair breakage.

Do not forget conditioner after shampooing as it hydrates and strengthens your hair. Focus on the lengths and ends, avoiding the scalp if you have oily hair. Enriched with nourishing ingredients like sunflower seed oil, we suggest going with the Dove Hair Fall Rescue Conditioner. It tames the frizz, detangles your hair and leaves your hair stronger and shinier. And it is free of chemicals like parabens, just what you need to keep an eye on when you have weak hair.

Hair Masks 

A hair mask is a deep conditioning hair loss treatment that nourishes and repairs your hair. They're packed with ingredients like nourishing oils and proteins that give a boost to your hair once a week.  

If you have extremely damaged hair, the Dove 10 in 1 Deep Repair Treatment Hair Mask is for you. It uses high-tech like bio-protein to reverse years-old damage by nourishing it. 

If you have extremely frizzy hair, go with the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask. With the help of argan oil and keratin, it strengthens hair from root to tip and leaves it soft and healthy.

Hair Serums 

Finish up your hair loss treatment with hair serums to lock in all that goodness. Hair serums are post-wash lightweight products that prepare your hair for the rest of the day. Just a few drops can transform your hair, leaving it smooth, sleek, and glossy. All you need to do is apply a few drops to damp or dry hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends.  

If you have frizzy hair, the Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Hair Serum uses authentic argan and lavender while staying away from harsh chemicals. It simply smoothens flyaways and frizz to give you a smooth and manageable mane. 

The TRESemmé Keratin Repair Bond Plex Oil Serum is perfect for brittle and weak hair as it uses fancy technology to strengthen your hair and nourish it from within. It also happens to be free of all those harsh chemicals like sulphates and parabens so win-win.

The Importance of Scalp Care   

The best Ayurvedic treatment for hair loss is to get head massages. The scalp massage benefits are many from boosting blood flow to the hair follicles to promoting healthy hair growth. You can use your fingertips or invest in a scalp massager tool.  

But if you ask us, we have a nifty little hair oil for you – the Indulekha Bringha Ayurvedic Oil with its inbuilt scalp comb for a mess-free experience. Oh, and it is clinically proven to regrow new and thick hair. And that is thanks to its chemical-free formula which is enriched with hair-loving Ayurvedic ingredients like bringharaj, amla, coconut oil and almond oil. 

Lifestyle Changes 

Along with a hair care routine for hair loss, your lifestyle should also make up a part of your hair loss treatment. 

Nutritious Diet: Eat a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins essential for hair health. Include foods like eggs, fish, nuts, fruits and green, leafy vegetables to provide your hair with the nutrients it needs to grow strong and resilient. 

Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your body and hair hydrated. Dehydration can make your hair dry and brittle, leading to breakage

Protective Styling: Avoid hairstyles that pull on your hair tightly, like tight ponytails, braids or buns. Opt for protective hair styling like loose braids and ponytails to reduce tension on the hair follicles and minimize breakage. 

Limit Heat Styling: Cut back on the use of heat-styling tools like blow dryers, straighteners and curling irons. When you do use them, apply a heat protectant spray to minimize damage.

Regular Trims: Get regular trims every three months to remove split ends and prevent further damage to your hair. 

Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Minimize the use of chemical hair treatments like botox, keratin, straightening and bleach, as they can weaken the hair shaft and lead to breakage. 

Stress Management: Practice stress-reducing techniques like yoga, meditation or deep breathing exercises to manage stress levels. Chronic stress can contribute to hair loss, so taking steps to relax and unwind is crucial for maintaining healthy hair. 

FAQs about Mane Maintenance Against Hair Loss  

Q1. How does laser work for hair loss? 

Laser therapy for hair loss, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), works by stimulating hair follicles to promote hair growth. The laser light energizes cells in the hair follicles, leading to improved circulation and increased nutrient delivery to the hair roots. This can result in thicker, healthier hair over time. 

Q2. What foods cause hair loss? 

There isn't a direct link between specific foods and hair loss. However, excessive consumption of certain foods, such as those high in sugar, unhealthy fats and processed ingredients, may negatively impact overall health, which can indirectly affect hair health

Q3. Does rice water grow hair? 

Rice water has been touted as a natural hair loss treatment. It contains vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that can nourish the scalp and hair follicles. While some people claim that rice water can improve hair growth and strength, scientific evidence supporting these claims is limited. However, using rice water as a hair rinse or mask may provide mild conditioning benefits and could potentially support overall hair health.
