11 TIPS TO PROMOTE HEALTHY HAIR & PREVENT HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN
Hair loss in women can have many causes, but hair loss in women can often be prevented and reversed. Healthy hair and a healthy scalp can be promoted by following a few basic tips. Remember, healthy hair is considered a sign of Youth and Beauty.

Ensure that the scalp is healthy. Recent research indicates that dandruff or flaky scalps increase the rate of hair shedding. To counteract an unhealthy Scalp, massage your scalp every day when in the shower and use paraben and sulfate-free products. If you suffer from dandruff, use a mild silicon-free shampoo for flaky/itchy scalp, such as L’Occitane. It contains five essential oils known for their revitalizing properties (mint, thyme, grapefruit, cedar, and lavender) with zinc pyrithione to help reduce flaking and prevent its recurrence. Enriched with Vitamin B5, it helps calm itching and leaves the scalp fresh and soothed. Dr. Slater offers Hair Care Products for hair loss in women.

Extreme stress can cause hair loss in the form of alopecia. It is essential to identify what it is that is causing the stress. Perhaps it is a difficult relationship, money worries, or a miserable job. Once Dr. Slater identifies the cause, it’s much easier to treat the stress. We also recommend yoga. It is brilliant for lowering stress levels. Any hobby that you find interesting or takes your mind of things that make you stressed. Exercising, mainly walking, reading, and going to the cinema, are excellent stress relievers.
Regular exercise tends to affect hair positively. The fitter you are, the more your hair should benefit. Why? Healthy hair is often a side effect of a healthy lifestyle, even in older women. As far as sweating and more frequent shampooing are concerned, it is good, not bad, to shampoo your hair regularly.
One of the most important factors preventing hair loss is adequate iron storage, called Ferritin. Proper iron levels help maximize hair growth, while low levels cause hair shedding. It may also be necessary to buy a vitamin B12 supplement and/or iron. Still, iron should be taken only if necessary after a blood test. It is surprising how many young women have low iron levels.
LOOSEN THAT HAIR
Continuously wearing hair extensions, braids, tight hairstyles, ponytails, and even hard brushing leads to Traction Alopecia. A hair loss condition caused by constant pulling on the hair follicles.
Prevent Hair Loss With A Healthy Diet
Excessive weight loss can cause hair to thin. If a slim person loses 2 kg, they may find that their hair begins to thin. Your hair is not a vital tissue, like bone marrow, nor is it a vital organ, like your heart, liver, or kidneys. What little nutrition you are getting through a restrictive diet will go to those parts of you first. Even though your hair is significant to you psychologically, your body is more concerned with keeping its internal organs healthy. Suppose your body is deprived and hungry on a crash or restrictive diet. In that case, you can only imagine how your hair follicles are feeling! This starvation of the follicles causes your hair to go into the telogen (resting/falling) phase prematurely and many hairs simultaneously. You can experience mass hair loss depending on how bad your diet was and how long the diet went on.
Which Supplements Help Prevent Hair Loss?
Supplements can help, too. Try PK4Hair, a protein supplement, and a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement.
Biotin for Hair & Nails, Omegas & Fish Oil also promotes healthy hair!

SNACKING FOR HEALTHY HAIR
It is important not to leave it too long between meals. Eating every 3-4 hours can help prevent hair loss. The energy to form hair cells diminishes four hours after eating a meal, so snacking between meals will help boost energy levels. The best energy-boosting snacks are Nuts and Fruits, but not carbs loaded with gluten and preservatives.
Hair is made of 85% protein and is the second most prolific growing cell in the body; therefore, its energy demand is high. Eating proteins for hair strength is a vital part of a moderately balanced diet.
PLATELET-RICH PLASMA THERAPY TO PREVENT HAIR LOSS, INCREASE HAIR GROWTH AND PROMOTE HEALTHY HAIR
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is especially effective when combined with the tips mentioned above. Platelet Rich Plasma is naturally rich in Growth Factors and derived from the patient’s blood (via blood draw). Dr. Slater has achieved great results with PRP. Patients often see results within 3-6 months of the treatment, and depending on your needs, Dr. Slater may recommend multiple treatments.
Who is the right candidate for PRP Therapy?
Dr. Slater can determine if you are a good candidate by reviewing your health history and through a simple medical questionnaire. Give our Buckhead Hair Clinic a call at 770-415-8071
