Meatless diets can lead to hair loss, so adjust the amount of soy you eat to increase your levels of iodine. Soy can affect the thyroid, and thyroid imbalances are a cause of loss of hair. Use shampoo that is made for your hair type. If you have a regular stylist, they can tell you what your hair type is. Rinse hair thoroughly after shampooing so buildup doesn’t occur.
Dyeing your hair does not cause hair loss. The only time hair dye can in fact contribute to hair loss is when it is kept on too long (your hair burns off) or if you are allergic to the contents of the dye. Feel free to dye away, but always take the time to test how your skin reacts to the dye before putting it on your hair.
Prevent hair loss with a combination of lime juice and coconut oil. Apply the mixture everyday for best results. Use this as a tool to massage your scalp daily. Massage it in for approximately 10 minutes using a circular motion, and do this prior to shampooing the hair.
If your hair loss is accompanied by an itchy, scaly scalp, consult a physician and inquire about a condition called seborrheic dermatitis. This condition is very easy to get rid of with OTC and prescription shampoo, and also, your doctor will be able to rule out other cause of your hair loss, like psoriasis.
