If you or a loved one is experiencing hair loss or hair thinning you should make time to a hair loss specialist or trichologist. These experts will diagnose and give appropriate advice about the condition of your hair and ways to promote hair regrowth.

However, as soon as you recognise hair loss it is essential to stay away from dyes, chemicals, and aggressive shampooing and blow drying to prevent further damage to the hair follicles. When the hair follicles are under too much stress they tend to die out, which leads to hair loss and eventually baldness. Thus, staying away from harsh products is vital for promoting hair restoration.
Along with that, a healthy diet also goes a long way in promoting hair regrowth both for men and women. Through research it has been revealed that lack of nutrition leads to unhealthy hair growth and hair loss, as the hair roots do not get the necessary nourishment. For this reason one may need protein, vitamin, and iron supplements as part of their hair loss treatment plan.
A healthy lifestyle with enough sleep and exercise also contributes to a healthy body and in turn, healthy hair. It has also been observed that mental stress and strain leads to ill health and hair loss. Hence, meditation and yoga, can help you lead a stress free life and prevent hair loss.
Moreover, massaging your scalp regularly with olive oil or vitamin E oil helps stimulate the follicles and promote hair regrowth. Massaging increases the blood circulation within the scalp and stimulates healthy hair regrowth.
