Hair Loss Prevention Tips

Most people who experience hair loss are interested ways to stop hair loss from worsening. At NeoGenesis Hair Institute, we understand how traumatic hair loss can be for both men and women. While our NeoGraft Automated FUE System of hair transplant is the ultimate and permanent answer, there are some other steps you can take that may help. Follow these guidelines every day to be sure you’re doing what you can do to keep your hair healthy.

A Healthy Lifestyle Can Help to Stop Hair Loss

Believe it or not, what you eat and how much exercise you get on a routine basis can help you keep a healthy head of hair.

  • Eat a healthy diet that’s low in saturated fat and rich in fruits and vegetables.
  • Try to get aerobic exercise on a regular basis—30 minutes a day is preferable, but check with your doctor to find out how much exercise is right for you.
  • Avoid stress as much as you can since hair loss can often be linked to stress.
  • Get plenty of sleep each night—8 hours is the preferred amount for the average adult.

Develop Good Habits to Prevent Hair Loss

There are some practical tips that you can follow to prevent worsening hair loss. Often, hair loss is caused by how the hair is treated. Follow these tips to avoid hair loss caused by damage:

  • Shampoo your hair on a regular basis with a gentle shampoo. And remember that there is no such thing as an effective hair loss shampoo. Conditioners and shampoos may temporarily make your hair seem fuller, but they don’t work in the long term.
  • Avoid heat as much as possible—it weakens hair. Try not to use a blow dryer, curling iron or hot curlers on a daily basis. The healthiest way to dry your hair is to let it air dry naturally, so take that route as much as possible.
  • Don’t dye your hair. Or, if you do choose to dye it, don’t dye it more often than every 6 to 8 weeks.
  • Don’t brush wet hair. A wide-tooth comb is the gentlest way to comb out wet hair.

How to Reverse Hair Loss—The Permanent Solution

While there are several steps you can take to try to reduce the amount of hair you’re losing, there is really only one permanent solution. Our NeoGraft Automated FUE System is a revolutionary hair transplant method that eliminates the need for major cuts to the scalp and long healing times. Our board-certified transplant surgeons make sure the process is minimally invasive, surprisingly affordable, completed with only a local anesthetic and—most importantly—results in a full, healthy looking head of hair!
