Dietary nutritional deficiencies are your worst enemy! What __ that increases hair loss?
Many people diet before an event or when they are going to wear light clothing. However, if done incorrectly, dieting can also cause hair loss. Here are some tips on how to maintain beautiful hair with the right diet and nutritional balance.
Malnutrition is the enemy of hair!
The “eat only __” diet is often talked about in Japan. Although it is possible to lose weight in a short period of time because calorie intake is reduced, eating only one food does not provide the body with the nutrients it needs. It also makes the body more prone to rebound and is bad for the hair.
The scalp is also a difficult area to nourish. The body delivers nutrients in order from the tissues necessary to sustain life (e.g., heart and internal organs). Therefore, the “skin” and “scalp” are delivered later. When the scalp does not receive nutrients, the hair matrix cells that produce hair also become malnourished, resulting in only thin, unhealthy hair.
How to maintain “beautiful hair” while dieting
Here are some points to keep in mind in your diet to maintain beautiful hair while on a diet.
Think about meal balance on a weekly basis.
It is difficult to have a balanced diet of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and fats every day when you are living a busy life. It is easier to think in weekly units, such as “I ate too much yesterday, so I will eat less today,” or “Yesterday I ate too much meat, so today I will eat fish.
Never skip breakfast!
Breakfast is the most important. Ideally, for weight loss, breakfast should be full of nutrients and moderate in the evening. Lunch should also be nutritionally balanced and low in calories if you bring a packed lunch instead of relying on calorie-dense fast food.
Meat, fish “protein” with foods that increase the absorption rate of protein!
95% of hair is made of a protein called “keratin. Protein intake is important for hair. However, it is meaningless if the protein taken in the diet is not absorbed into the body! When eating meat and fish, it is recommended to take them with foods that improve protein absorption.
Foods that contain “degrading enzymes” that improve protein absorption include papaya, pineapple, figs, kiwi fruit, melon (the above are raw fruits, not processed), ginger, and maitake mushrooms. Ginger is especially recommended for women because of its warming effect. As your body temperature rises, your basal metabolic rate also increases, allowing you to burn calories more effectively!
Forcing yourself to restrict your diet may make you feel “slimmer! but later you may worry that it will lead to poor physical condition, skin disorder, hair pain, and hair loss. Do not go on an excessive diet, but aim to create a beautiful body shape and beautiful hair with a method that you can continue every day.
Types of alopecia and their causes
Have you ever been surprised by the amount of hair you lose when you wash your hair or dry your hair with a hair dryer? In this issue, we will discuss in detail the types and causes of alopecia in men and women respectively.
What are the characteristics of male alopecia?
There are three main types of alopecia in men. They are androgenetic alopecia (AGA), seborrheic alopecia, and alopecia areata.
AGA (male pattern baldness)
The most common type of alopecia in men is male pattern baldness, known as AGA, and is said to affect more than 12 million people nationwide in Japan. Male pattern baldness is a form of androgenetic alopecia and is a thinning of the hair found in adult males.
It is believed to be caused by DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a male hormone that suppresses the function of hair matrix cells and inhibits hair growth.
In this case, hair gradually thins from the hairline of the forehead or the crown of the head. There are many things that are not yet understood about thinning hair in men, and in addition to DHT, genetics and lifestyle habits (diet, smoking, sleep, etc.) are also said to be involved.
Seborrheic alopecia is an alopecia that occurs as a result of inflammation of the scalp caused by excessive sebum secretion.
Alopecia areata is a type of autoimmune disease in which hair suddenly falls out in circles or bands. It is believed to be caused by lymphocytes attacking the hair follicles, regarding their own follicles as the enemy. Stress was thought to be the cause, but so far there is no scientific evidence.
What are the characteristics of female alopecia?
Female alopecia is characterized by the thinning of the entire head of hair, including the parting of the hair that becomes transparent. There are six major types of female alopecia
Diffuse alopecia, in which the entire head of hair thins, is the most common type of thinning hair among women. There are various causes, such as changes in the function of female hormones due to aging, stress, and dietary disorders caused by dieting.
Similar to seborrheic alopecia in men, seborrheic alopecia is an alopecia caused by inflammation of the scalp due to excessive sebum secretion.
When hair is pulled and tied tightly for a long period of time, the area is overstrained and hair loss may increase. This is traction alopecia.
After childbirth, due to changes in the balance of female hormones, the hair that has maintained a growth phase during pregnancy enters a resting phase, which is thought to increase hair loss. Since this is a temporary condition, it is said to return to normal in about 18 months after childbirth.
Alopecia areata is the result of excessive shampooing or unsuitable shampoo for the scalp, which causes increased dandruff that blocks the pores and inhibits hair growth.
Like alopecia areata in men, this is a type of autoimmune disease.
Causes of Hair Loss Vary
Hair loss is caused by a combination of various factors, including heredity, hormones, and lifestyle, but it can also be caused by disease. If you are concerned about increased hair loss, it is a good idea to have your hair checked at a clinic to make sure there are no other hidden diseases.
Make sure you understand the types and causes of alopecia and use this information to help prevent hair loss!
Diagnosis! Thinning hair level indicated by scalp firmness and hair
You don’t know how far along your thinning hair is! If you have such a problem, we recommend a level diagnosis.
Diagnosis of thinning hair level by scalp firmness
The degree to which thinning hair is progressing can be diagnosed by the firmness of the scalp.
No discomfort when the scalp is shifted 5 mm with the belly of the finger.
→The risk of thinning hair is low, but regular self-checks are recommended.
Scalp is a little hard
When you shift your scalp with your finger, you feel discomfort, and when you release your finger, you feel a momentary increase in blood circulation.
→This is a sign of thinning hair or the beginning of thinning hair.
The scalp is hard.
When you try to move your scalp with your fingers, there is a slight pain.
→This is a condition in which thinning hair is progressing. The scalp is losing blood circulation and flexibility. Start taking action immediately. Not all thinning hair can be diagnosed by the firmness of the scalp, but it is one standard to check.
Diagnosis of thinning hair level by hair thickness
Hair thickness can also diagnose the risk and level of thinning hair.
● Hair is thick and of sufficient length
The risk of thinning hair is low. Even if there is no problem now, it is safe to check in the future.
Hair is fine but long.
If you had thick hair when you were young, it is not a problem. If you had thick hair when you were young, you can judge that signs of thinning hair have begun to appear. Start appropriate hair growth.
● Hair is thin and short and falling out.
The risk of thinning hair is high. Hair is falling out because it is not growing fully, so the hair growth cycle and scalp nutrition are declining.
Hair thickness can also be used to diagnose the level of thinning hair as described above.
Other ways to determine the level of thinning hair
Whether the scalp is greasy or not
The risk of thinning hair can also be diagnosed by the condition of the scalp.
A dry scalp is a sign of lack of nutrients for hair growth. Moisturizing is recommended for hair growth care.
This can easily clog pores and cause hair loss. Shampooing methods and types need to be reviewed.
Thinning hair that can be diagnosed by personality and occupation?
In fact, personality can also diagnose thinning hair. This is linked to the hardness of the scalp. Serious and methodical personalities tend to have hard scalps due to mental fatigue. According to a hair stylist who has the opportunity to touch many people’s heads, people in occupations where they use computers all day often have stiff shoulders and necks, which also causes a stiff scalp.
When fatigue sets in, the scalp also tends to become stiff and blood circulation is poor. For such people, a head spa is recommended to relax both body and mind.
Please check the current level of thinning hair by comprehensively judging the results of each diagnosis and try to take measures to prevent headaches.
