Hair thinning and falling out can be caused by a lack of hair nutrition. When the scalp becomes dry, the hair does not receive sufficient nutrients and only thin, weak hair grows. Taking proper measures to prevent dryness will help prevent hair loss.
Where does dryness come from?
There are many possible causes for why the scalp becomes dry. Excessive stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, irregular lifestyle, lack of exercise, and other things known to be bad for one’s health can also affect scalp dryness.
The other primary cause is incorrect shampooing methods. In fact, it is said that the most common cause of dry scalp is shampooing.
No good thing to over-wash.
When the scalp dries out, dandruff increases. When dandruff increases even though we always shampoo properly, we put more effort to thoroughly cleanse our scalp. However, this will further dry out the scalp.
If all the necessary sebum is washed away, the scalp will not be able to retain moisture and the dryness will worsen. Shampoo once a day, and wash your scalp and hair without exerting much effort.
Choosing a good shampoo for the scalp
The important thing is to choose the right shampoo for you. Generally speaking, high-grade alcohol-based shampoos available at drugstores have too strong a cleansing power. Synthetic surfactants, which are often used, are also ingredients that strongly irritate sebum. Such shampoos can be quite a burden for those who do not like them.
On the other hand, there are people who use them comfortably and are very comfortable with their skin. It is best to use an amino acid-based shampoo that is as gentle to the scalp as possible. If you feel that even an amino acid-based shampoo does not suit your skin, stop using it immediately.
No shampoo left on scalp
Do not forget to rinse thoroughly when shampooing. If shampoo ingredients remain on the scalp, they can block the pores and trigger inflammation and breakouts. Rinse thoroughly with warm water to ensure that no shampoo is left behind. Shampoo your hair as if you were going to spend 2 to 3 minutes just rinsing.
Don’t forget to moisturize.
After shampooing, do not forget to moisturize. There are lotions for the scalp that can be used. You can also use the same lotion you use for your face. Whatever you use, the best thing to do is to moisturize and prevent evaporation of moisture. However, cream-based products may block pores and should not be used.
Simply shampooing properly every day can prevent hair loss.
