How To Prevent Hair Loss

Even though it might sound like a worrying number, shedding between 50-100 hairs a day is completely normal. It’s all part of the hair’s natural growth cycle. So, if you notice more hair on your brush from time to time or increased hair loss while showering, it’s likely nothing to worry about.

However, if you’re concerned that you’re losing more hair than is normal for you and you’d like to find out more about how to prevent hair loss, keep reading. We explain the possible triggers of hair loss and how to limit the damage.

What Triggers Hair Loss?

The causes of hair loss can be divided into three categories: genetic, damage and lifestyle factors. While genetic hair loss is usually permanent, damage-related hair loss (triggered by illness or lifestyle) can often be prevented.

Environmental factors, increased stress levels and poor lifestyle can all impact hair’s heath. To help prevent hair loss, try the below.

Take Time to Relax

Feeling more stressed than usual? Higher stress levels can contribute to hair loss, making it really important to regularly take time for yourself. Enjoy a home spa, meditate, read a good book or go out for a walk in nature to clear your head and relax. Trust us, decreasing your stress levels can help decrease hair loss and contribute positively to hair’s natural growth cycle.

Eat a Balanced Diet

A well-balanced, healthy diet is not only crucial for new hair growth but is also essential for maintaining the condition of your existing hair strands. You should also consider introducing hair vitamins or food supplements into your diet for that extra boost.

The Watermans Grow Pro Hair Vitamins are designed to keep hair healthy and thick, while our Allevi8 Well-Being Supplement helps to maintain a healthy immune system and boost your mood and wellbeing.

Check Your Scalp If Irritation Occurs

A healthy scalp most often equals healthy hair. So, if you’re prone to scalp irritations, consider using milder haircare products or scalp treatments, like our Grow More Elixir. Bursting with natural ingredients, it helps to strengthen your follicles and make your scalp the optimal environment for hair.

Treat and Protect Your Scalp

Environmental stressors and the change in seasons can greatly impact the health of your hair and scalp. In the Summer, it’s important to protect your hair from sun damage, while hair will likely need extra moisture as it grows drier and more brittle in the Winter.

No matter the season, our Essentials Set has got you covered. It includes our award-winning Grow Me Shampoo and Condition Me Conditioner to promote stronger, thicker-looking hair and help make your scalp the optimal place for hair growth.

Avoid Heated Styling Tools

When it comes to using styling tools, the higher the heat, the more damaged and dry hair becomes. Always use a cooler setting and brush gently to avoid causing further breakage and contributing to hair loss.

Our fantastic Protect Me heat defence spray shields hair against damage and breakage caused by heated styling tools, UV rays and environmental stressors. Spritz directly onto the hair to deeply moisturise and nourish.

Use Gentle Styling Methods

Super tight ponytails and accessories that snag on the hair can cause damage and breakage and contribute to hair loss. Instead, choose styles that don’t put additional stress on the hair and always tie an up-do a little more loosely.
