Well, it starts with treating yourself right.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss can be caused by factors ranging from illness, medication, poor diet, hormones and over-styling. However, the main cause for hair loss in both men and women is beyond our control. It is genetics, something that we are born with and cannot help. Any one of these causes can interfere with the hair growth cycle and can prevent hair follicles from growing new hair. We lose on average 100-150 hairs per day, and hair grows at an average of 0.5 inches per month. But when you notice more extreme hair shedding or slowed hair growth than this, it could be a hair loss symptom.

Somewhere around 50 percent of people experience some form of hair loss by the age of 50. For hair loss symptoms caused by aging and hormones, women’s loss tends to be temporary while men’s is most often more permanent. For women, hair loss symptoms may be thinning hair or gradually more exposed scalp on the top of the head. Men may find a growing bald spot on top of their head. But there are things that can be done to stop or reverse the issue.

What Can You Do to Decrease Hair Loss?

Diet and nutritional supplements are key in preparing for a hair regrowth procedure. At Razhair, we want you to be as healthy as possible to be ready for our non-invasive hair loss solutions, and this includes your body already being prepared to have hair restoration. As we use no glues or chemicals and although the ITHL method is well founded, we want to be dealing with a patient who is physically ready to accept treatment. This is not required, but much like a doctor will suggest to a cancer patient that they should boost their immunity with vitamin C and bone broth before chemotherapy, we suggest taking certain vitamins and nutrients (and some foods) to be readier for the changes your body will make to regrow your own hair.

Biotin, also known as B7 or H, is a water-soluble vitamin for hair loss. Biotin has been shown to promote hair growth, thicken the hair strand, and prevent hair loss. If your diet lacks B vitamins like Biotin, it may result in hair loss and you should take vitamins for hair growth or a hair growth supplement to nourish thinning hair with B vitamins and other essential nutrients for healthy hair growth.  Hair loss vitamins such as Biotin, Niacin (vitamin B3) and vitamin C, and minerals for hair loss such as Zinc and Iron, provide essential hair nutrients to nourish healthy and longer hair. Eating plenty of these essential hair growth vitamins can help prevent hair loss in both men and women. Although some causes of hair loss, such as chemotherapy, illness and medication, may only be slightly affected by a good hair loss diet, in many cases both men and women can see fantastic results after only about 3-4 months of eating more vitamins and minerals for hair growth. Try promoting natural hair growth by eating a good hair loss diet. Here are five of the top foods for hair growth, including nuts (which contain omega-3 fatty acids, biotin, vitamin E and copper), oysters (rich in zinc), sweet potatoes (omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, and vitamins A, B, C, K and E), eggs (a good source of protein, plus biotin, other B vitamins, zinc, selenium, sulfur and iron), and spinach (iron, beta-carotene, folate, vitamin A and vitamin C)
