Hair loss can be caused by a number of factors. While hereditary hair loss and alopecia require a touch more care and a specialist to help, hair loss caused by environmental factors can be mitigated and managed. Here are some lifestyle changes that can help effectively reduce hair loss.

Eat more protein and omega-3s
Very often, hair loss can be attributed to a protein deficiency. There’s insufficient protein to support hair function, growth, and renewal in the body, leading to hair loss. Having a diet rich in protein sources such as chicken, salmon, eggs, beans, and the like may help with this. Fatty acids like omega-3s are also important for your overall hair and scalp health, so make sure you add those to your diet as well!
Get in your vitamins
Studies have shown that vitamin A and B are essential vitamins in hair growth, prolonging the growth phase and encouraging renewal. Foods that are great natural sources of these vitamins include yellow, red and green (leafy) vegetables, such as spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes and capsicum. Vitamin B is found in most protein sources, which as stated above, should be a staple in your diet as well!
Healthy body = healthy hair! Exercise is not only a great way to reduce stress and increase those feel good endorphins, but also keeps you looking good. Need help creating a workout plan? We’ve got you.
Hair fall and loss can be caused in cases of high tension and stress. Effectively managing your stress can help counteract this. Some strategies include yoga, meditation, or even booking in for a massage at one of our many salons on Vaniday!
