It’s established fact that the average person tends to lose between 50 to 100 hair strands everyday, but are you feeling that you might be losing more? Perhaps it’s because you’re seeing a lot of your hair strands on places like your pillow, your comb or even the back of your shirt.
Aside from genetics, conditions like trichotillomania, or the uncontrollable urge to pull out hair, are often attributed to hair loss, but did you know that your everyday habits can also contribute (and consequently lead) to you losing your crowning glory? Before undergoing hair restoration in Mexico, here are the everyday habits that could be the cause of your hair problems.
Tight Hair Styles
Are you a fan of pulling your hair into a tight ponytail or a high bun, or perhaps you’re always wearing tight braids or extensions? Wearing these hairstyles more than once gradually weakens your hair’s roots, causing damage to your hair follicles over time and even leading to inflammation at your hair’s roots.
Washing Hair with Hot Water
Having a hot bath seems the best way to enjoy bath time, but your hair says otherwise. Exposing your hair to hot water causes dehydration and gradually makes your hair brittle. Moreover, washing your scalp with hot water isn’t such a good idea since it’s harsh and strips your hair of natural oils essential to retaining its strength.
Combing Hair when Wet
Some people are simply too busy to wait for their hair to dry, so they opt to brush their hair while it’s still wet. Little do they know that hair is more prone to breakage when it’s wet, and brushing it (or worse, drying it with blow dryers) gradually weakens hair roots and makes the hair appear rougher.
Depriving Hair of Oil
Aside from shampoos and conditioners, your hair also needs essential oils to retain its strength, something that most people forget to do. Providing natural hair oils like coconut and olive oil are essential not only for controlling hair damage but also for improving blood circulation.
If you’re guilty of any of these bad habits, you could well have unearthed the cause of your hair woes. Fortunately, you can solve them through permanent solutions like hair transplants in Mexico from centers like Baja Hair Center. Not only will the procedure give your hair new life, but it can also facilitate normal hair growth in the future.
