Tips to prevent hair fall

June 4th, 2021 | by

Your hair hanging from your brush every day can be a frightening sight.  But we’re here to put your fears to rest!! We have put together everything you need to know about hair fall and the ways to prevent it. 

While most women suffer from hair fall due to an unhealthy lifestyle, for some it’s hereditary. Genetics, stress, pregnancy, hormonal imbalance and lack of proper vitamins are some of the major causes of hair fall. It is all a part of your hair cycle as hair fall also leads to new hair sprouting.  However, if the problem alarmingly increases, it is time to take action. 

Here is something you can do to take care of your hair fall.

Tips to stop your hair fall are as follows –

1. Wash your hair regularly

Washing your hair regularly keeps it clean and healthy. Use milder shampoos and ditch the chemical treatments to keep the hair follicles from drying out and falling off. Deep conditioning and deep cleansing your hair will give it the right nutrients and make your hair healthy and thick again.

2. Diet Dillema

Should your diet have more protein? Or fiber? Directly or indirectly, our diet impacts the quality of our hair. Switching to a healthier diet that covers all the vitals can work wonders for your hair. Incorporate a good amount of protein, fiber, vitamins in your daily diet and see the magic. Fruits with Vitamin C, lean meats, pulses, omega 3 should be a must in your daily diet.

3. Stress can affect your hair too

Stress can be a major factor when it comes to hair fall. Meditate, relax and get a good head massage to let go off  stress.  Getting enough sleep is also very important as a lack of adequate sleep can increase stress levels and lead to excessive hair fall. 

4. Oiling

A good hair massage with olive oil or coconut oil before you wash your hair can effectively help in preventing hair loss. Massage gently on your scalp and leave it for a couple of hours or overnight and get shinier, healthier hair after every wash.

5. Go Gentle

Who doesn’t love a good hair style? Braids, a tight top knot, a low bun or a pony tail, we love experimenting with our hair but little do we know that tying up our hair tightly can affect the roots of your hair and cause hair fall. Try wearing a loose style. Loosen your braids, make loose buns and try to change our hairstyle. This not only gives you a new look, but it also gives your hair some time to recover.

6. Say No to Smoking

Smoking not only impacts your overall health but also your hair by decreasing oxygen in your hair follicles as well as prevents vital nutrients to get to your hair, along with causing inflammation of the hair follicles. 


Ladies, we know you love your hair, and controlling hair fall can be a nightmare sometimes.  While these methods can curb hairfall, understanding the real reason for your hairfall can help prevent it from ever coming back. A customized haircare plan based on your unique hair texture can work wonders for you.

Fret not ladies! Good hair days are just a few lifestyle changes away!
