Hair may have been necessary eons ago in the Cro-Magnon era camouflaging ourselves in the wild, but fortunately today this is no longer the case. Today, we want hair to be attractive. Reflecting an image of vigor, youth, health and confidence is probably just as important to you as it is to us. One way to maintain that is to prepare for hair shedding season.
Hair shedding season lasts around 6 weeks and happens twice a year. The first bump is small and occurs in the spring. The larger one–the one preparing you for winter (and hopefully not the “winter of your hair’s life”)–occurs in autumn. If singing Autumn Leaves during fall time carries a more profound meaning than you’d like, there are things you can do to trick nature. Here are four steps should you take during to prepare for hair shedding season to ensure your hair stays thick, healthy and full.
1. Use the Theradome Laser Helmet consistently
Laser hair therapy is clinically proven to minimize hair shedding, increase hair shaft diameter, and induce new hair growth. Prepare for hair shedding seasons with the FDA-cleared Theradome LH80 PRO, the world’s most technologically advanced laser hair therapy device. It is conveniently available to you for a fraction of the cost of professional laser hair loss clinics. Laser hair therapy fights hair loss. The power of the Theradome helmet is the best solution during hair shedding season with twice-a-week sessions to stay ahead of the game.
2. Pay attention to your hair shedding
It’s normal to lose a certain number of hairs a day. You probably have a general sense of what’s normal for you. Although it’s hard to tell, you may notice more hair loss (typically ranging from 80 – 150 hairs a day) during hair shedding season. Check your brush, pillows, and, your clogged shower drain for lost hairs. Don’t forget the presence and influence of the all-mighty DNA that aims to create copies of your relatives’ scalps. Some people shed more, some people shed less. Chances are their rates of hair loss in the midst of hair shedding season also differ.
Still worried? The safest bet is to consult your doctor if you’re uncertain of any significant hair loss. Make an appointment to rule out any serious health problems. Since hair is technically the last thing your body really needs, it is first on the chopping block when it comes to down to preserving what’s crucially important for your survival.
3. Take natural supplements that promote hair growth
There are a few natural supplements that are known to help with overall hair and scalp health, such as biotin, selenium, and zinc. Including foods rich in these in your overall diet, taking supplements will prepare your body and hair for the hair shedding months ahead. Just remember to always consult a physician when taking supplements/vitamins, especially if you are currently on medication, are pregnant or have any health conditions.
Biotin, a water-soluble vitamin B
It’s known for encouraging healthy hair, scalp, skin, nails, immunity and cellular energy production. Biotin can’t reverse hair loss, but has been shown to encourage healthy hair to grow faster and longer. Biotin also wards off chemicals and hormones that aggravate hair loss.
Furthermore, if you are biotin-deficient, you’ll consequentially suffer from a compromised state of health of hair shedding. During hair shedding season, biotin should hence be taken at a daily dose of 5000 mcg–(not to be confused with mg–1000 mcg = 1 mg).
It supports hair growth and can prevent hair loss. Selenium reduces levels of dandruff and fights the presence of the Malassezia fungus.
This can cause inflammation and result in the sad dwindling and hair shedding of your locks. In fact, selenium is often included in anti-dandruff shampoos. Take between 100 and 250 mcg of selenium every day during hair shedding season to prevent clogging of your shower drain.
A trace mineral present in the human body and plays a crucial role in protein synthesis, cell reproduction, tissue growth, vitamin absorption and hormonal balance. Zinc boosts your immune system and also strengthens hair shafts as well as contributes to hair regrowth. No one wants that. Zinc also maintains scalp health and an overall balanced production of sebum– an oil secreted by glands essential for healthy hair lubrication. During hair shedding season, try incorporating 30 mg of zinc into your daily regimen.
4. Prepare for hair shedding season ahead of time
Now is the time to revisit your good intentions. With the above regimen, you are now fully armed to affront the hair shedding curse of autumn and spring for years to come.
