Causes of Hair Loss

I've been hearing about a lot of women who are having problems with hair loss. I have written posts in the past about how to grow thicker hair and also shared a recipe for a rosemary hair rinse which incorporates the use of rosemary topically on the scalp to increase hair growth, but I wanted to write something a bit more specific for my ladies (and guys!) out there with clogged brushes and drains.

First of all check with a hairdresser to make sure you are treating you hair right. Are you using the right products? Brushing properly? Hit up my hairdresser, Zoe for more info.

I get a lot of questions about which supplements are best to take for hair and, while it is all well and good taking a vitamin supplement designed to assist with hair growth (I'm talking vitamins like zinc, silica, vitamin C, and various B vitamins), if you are not treating the cause of your hair loss you're not really going to get anywhere.
Although, for some, the cause may actually be vitamin and mineral deficiencies so taking a supplement like Fusion Health's Hair, Skin and Nails would help with this. As well as increasing your intake of foods such as brazil nuts, citrus fruits, leafy greens, and pumpkin seeds.

The main contributor to hair loss I have come across is stress. So learning how to deal with stress then becomes the main priority. Stress management techniques like alternate nostril breathing, exercise, stretching, counselling, and prayer all help with this and are tools you can use throughout the day. If you feel that you are not coping well with stress in your life, it is best to speak to a health professional so they can help guide you through these stress management techniques and more.

Another product you may find helpful is Fusion Health's Hair Tonic. This product contains Chinese herbs which support hair growth and can be combined with the Hair, Skin and Nails supplement mentioned above. Make sure you check the cautions as herbs can interact with medications and some are not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Other causes of hair loss can include low thyroid function, low iron, pregnancy/breastfeeding, auto immune conditions, and genetics. All of which would require investigation and diagnosis by a health care professional.
