There are many disadvantages to having hair loss and thinning hair, such as looking older than your age. In this issue, we will introduce care methods to reduce hair loss for those who are concerned about thinning hair.
Review your diet and nutritional status.
One of the causes of hair loss and thinning hair is poor nutrition due to unbalanced diets and excessive dieting. Eating out or using instant foods frequently tends to cause a lack of vitamins and minerals necessary for hair.
In addition, extreme overconsumption of fat increases the amount of sebum in the scalp, which worsens the scalp environment. It is important to take care of your scalp from the inside by eating a well-balanced diet of vegetables and fish, as well as tofu and miso soup that contain high-quality protein, and natto (fermented soybeans), which is rich in zinc.
Prepare scalp environment with hair-growth shampoo, etc.
The shampoo used daily also plays a major role in hair loss and thinning hair. It is necessary to use shampoo to properly remove the clogged sebum that causes hair loss. However, for those concerned about thinning hair, shampoos with too strong a cleansing power can damage the scalp and disrupt the hair cycle.
Shampoos designed for hair growth and thinning hair are designed to take care of the scalp, and while properly removing dirt, they are hypoallergenic and work to maintain a normal hair cycle.
Perform scalp care such as massage
Massage and other forms of care are also important to reduce hair loss. When blood circulation in the scalp is poor, nutrients are not distributed to the hair follicles, causing hair loss. Massage can therefore promote blood circulation and lead to a healthy scalp. For effective massage, we recommend using a hair-growth treatment in combination with a hair-growth agent.
However, too much massage can damage the scalp, so be gentle and use your fingers to massage. It is also effective to relieve stiffness in the shoulders and neck as well as areas of concern on the scalp.
Is the thinning hair not AGA?
Hair loss may be caused by male pattern baldness called AGA, in which heredity and the balance of male hormones cause hair thinning and hair loss from a young age. in the case of AGA, hair follicles remain after thinning, so early care can prevent hair from thinning.
Treatment for AGA centers on medication, which can be received at a medical institution. If your thinning hair does not improve at all after taking measures to prevent hair loss, or if you feel that it is progressing, consult a hospital.
Increased hair loss is a warning sign of thinning hair. Protect your healthy scalp and hair by taking appropriate care as soon as possible.
