Be bold, but not bald! Pre-mature hair loss, we’re here to help!

Ever wonder if you’re losing too much hair? Do you find one too many strands on your pillow in the AM? Hair brush and sink full of loose ends? Premature hair loss, scientifically known as Androgentic Alopecia, is more common than you would think and can strike women as early as teenage years! The good news is that there are many different treatment options (surgery-free) that combat this less than welcomed surprise!

What causes hair loss? 
There is no linear answer when it comes to hair loss. A range of health problems, nutrient deficiencies and environmental factors are culprits for this less than welcome surprise. Below is a list of the most common reasons for premature hair loss:

- Stress
- Strict dieting or poor nutrition (leading to protein deprivation)
- Hormonal changes (pregnancy, puberty, and menopause) 
- Thyroid disease
- Heretics
- Iron deficiency (anaemia) 
- Secondary syphilis

How to treat:
Ladies, its time to take a stand against hair loss, grab it by the horns, back it up and reverse - complete 180! While the causes of your hair loss may be chronic (life-long) or uncontrollable, there are steps you can take that have been proven to promote hair growth and strength.

Eat Healthily (It’s more than just a New Year’s resolution!) 

Although we know you don’t want to hear it (pizza is life), diet does affect your hair health and ability to regenerate after loss. Now we aren’t saying you can’t have a slice of cake at your gal pals b’day bash or never indulge in a cheeky Friday night UberEats feast (remember, everything is healthy in moderation ladies). Aim to fill most of your meals with lean proteins and complex carbohydrates. 

Yes, you heard right - girlfriend you can totally eat your carbs! They aren’t evil at all and are actually your hairs preferred source of energy for growing and replacing cells. So if you’re experiencing hair loss, feeling your body with complex carbohydrates will aid in getting those beautiful locks to grow grow grow! Load up on all the amazing varieties of complex carbs like brown/ wild rice, quinoa, legumes, sweet potato, oat and wholegrain bread and pasta varieties, #carbsarelife! 

Getting enough healthy sources of lean protein in your diet is another key nutrient to be aware of when trying to reverse the effects of hair loss. Your hair is primarily made from a protein source called Keratin. Ensuring you have enough protein in your body aids in the health and strength of each hair follicle. Healthy, strong hair is less likely to fall out, so your chances of experiencing more hair loss become much less. 

Focus on lean protein sources that are also high in Omega-3s (your hair loves this nutrient too!) Think of foods such as trout, mackerel, salmon, avocado, chia seeds and walnuts. 

Stay away from the bleach!

Although we love your fresh coloured locks as much as you do, colouring your hair (especially bleach) is doing more harm than less when it comes to your hair loss. Bleaching strips hair of all its natural oils, pigment and nutrient, causing hair to become dry, brittle and inelastic. With a higher chance to snap and break, you best stay away from the hairdresser basin if you’re looking to re-grow hair after loss. 

Get a blood test (iron and B12 levels)

Now we want you to think back to the last time you got a blood test? If your answer is longer than six months and you’re experiencing hair loss, chances are you could be deficient in iron or vitamin B12, both vital nutrients key to hair health, reiteration and growth! 

Try a hair-loss supplement 

Hair supplements are an amazing addition to your new #hairgoals lifestyle. Giving you that extra power punch of nutrients hair thrives on, there are only positives in terms of the effects swallowing one of these capsules of goodness in your mouth each morning. 

However, it is really important that you do your research before purchasing any supplements. Make sure the products you buy are manufactured to strict GMP standards in local Australian manufacturing facilities. Get researching to ensure the supplements are also formulated based on scientific evidence to support hair growth

Pssst, want to try some supplements for yourself but don't know where to start in terms of research? You're in luck! We’re here to help with your hairy (or lack thereof) situation. Shop our Hair Growth Support Multivitamin now and help get your hair back to sitting pretty on top of that head!
