3 Ways to Fight Hair Loss
Losing your hair can do a number to your self-esteem; and both men and women suffer from hair loss. Luckily, there are plenty of options available to help you fight balding.
Laser Light Therapy
Laser light therapy stimulates blood flow to the scalp while also boosting the protein synthesis needed for hair regeneration. Laser therapy is a great choice for men and women who experience increased shedding and want to renew their hair as well as promote additional re-growth. 80 percent of people treated by light therapy have experienced a significant decline in shedding as well as a reduction in hair loss altogether. While Laser Light Therapy is extremely effective, there are other components to consider when treating hair loss.
Genetics are always a factor when it comes to hair loss; however, nutrition, hormone balance and stress are also important contributors. Eating a balanced diet is important to your overall health, (and that includes the health of your hair) so try to avoid eating foods that increase hair loss. Greasy, sugary and spicy foods are among the worst culprits for thinning. To maintain a healthy head of hair it’s important to sustain a diet, rich in protein that also includes vitamins and minerals such as biotin, silica, iron and zinc.
Did you know that it has been scientifically proven that your hair and body require copper to be at their best? More shampoos today have been formulated to include active ingredients known to slow, stop and reverse hair loss. Tricomin is a therapy spray, shampoo and conditioner that includes “Copper Peptide Technology”. This technology is one of the most unique and successful methods of treating hair loss. FDA trials have proven that it stimulates hair growth and also showed positive results in test studies on people who used it twice daily for 24 weeks.
With the right hair care regimen, nutritious diet and the regular use of home care, you are sure to see an improvement in the condition of your hair.

Tips to prevent hair loss
It’s believed that more than one third of the world’s population are suffering from hair loss. While we cannot stop natural hair loss, there are many preventable types of hair loss that can be avoided through simple lifestyle changes. Here are some tips to stave off unnecessary hair loss:
Wash hair daily
Dirt increases the chance of infections caused by bacteria, which can damage hair follicles and lead to hair loss. Wash hair with mild shampoo and conditioner designed for your hair type. Avoid rinsing hair with very hot water and always dry and comb your wet hair gently.
Get enough sleep and reduce stress
Getting a good night’s sleep, managing pressure, and avoiding stress, is important for our overall health and that includes our hair health. People are less likely to experience hair loss when they’ve had adequate sleep and feel comfortable within their environment.
Exercise increases blood circulation which is vital for optimum hair growth. Physical activity also improves our overall well-being, which reduces the risk of illness and the use of medications, thus preventing hair loss caused by drugs and disease.
Drink plenty of water each day
Similar to our skin, our hair is comprised of about 20% water. Water helps carry off toxins from both our skin and hair. Drinking 4 to 8 cups of water a day are required to maintain vibrant, healthy hair.
Eat a nutritionally balanced diet
Like other parts of our body, hair also requires energy for peak performance. Protein, iron, and Vitamins A, B, C and E are among the most important nutrients to support healthy hair growth. To strengthen your hair, add the following nutrient rich foods to your diet: meat, fish, dairy, eggs, squash, oranges, lemons, apricots, raisins, avocados, spinach, beans, green peppers, kale, carrots, nuts, and sesame.
Along with a balanced diet, multi-vitamin and multi-mineral supplements may also be beneficial for hair growth. Talk to your doctor to find out which supplements are right for you.
Avoid overheating hair
Constant heating can make hair brittle and fragile, even damage hair follicles. Set your hair dryer on low temperature levels or let your hair dry naturally.
Try not to dye
Frequent use of chemicals like hair dye may cause hair breakage and hurt your scalp, thus affecting the hair growth.
Avoid tight hairstyles
Tight hairstyles such as pigtails, braids, or cornrows can cause traction hair loss due to frequent twisting or pulling of the hair.
Reduce drinking and stop smoking
Studies have shown that excessive alcohol consumption may prevent nutrients from being absorbed properly by the body. Smoking can also destroy hair follicles by interfering with the blood and hormone circulation of the scalp.
Massage scalp regularly
Massaging stimulates the blood circulation of the scalp; this can help lead to healthy hair by increasing the amount of nutrients being absorbed.
