YOUR HAIR CARE ROUTINE FOR HAIR LOSS

 

model pulling up her hair{Hair loss} is a natural part of life, but that doesn’t mean it can’t knock your confidence from time to time. Understanding what’s causing it will help you to work out how to manage it, and using the right hair care products can help to give your mane some extra oomph.

Hair loss is different to {hair thinning } – hair thinning (or shedding) means that your hair is falling out more quickly than it should, while hair loss means there’s something stopping it from growing in the first place. Hair loss can be caused by a range of factors. Age (and genetics) is a big one – as we get older, some of our hair follicles can stop growing hair, causing hairlines to recede and our hair to get thinner. Stress, illness, weight loss and iron deficiency are other causes.

You should consult your GP if you’re worried about your hair loss, and in the meantime, consider shaking up your {hair care} routine to incorporate products designed to help encourage regrowth and boost thickness, strength, length and shine. Without further ado, here’s {Cult Concierge} expert {Syhem’s} recommended hair care routine for hair loss. Ready, set, grow!

1. Start with a pre-wash treatment

Begin your hair care routine for hair loss with a strength-giving pre wash, like {Fable & Mane’s Pre-Wash Strengthening Treatment Hair Oil}. It encourages healthy hair from root to tip by stimulating scalp circulation as well as strengthening and softening strands. It’s lightweight, silicon-free, and helps to thicken fine hair and encourage hair growth.

Apply to dry hair and massage into roots. Leave for at least 5 minutes – or overnight for best results – then rinse well before shampooing.

2. Choose a specially formulated anti-hair-loss shampoo

Part of an entire range of anti-hair-fall products, {Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo} takes a three-pronged approach to keeping hair fall at bay. Firstly, it uses camellia and larch extracts to strengthen strands from the root, encouraging the growth of thicker, healthier hairs less prone to breakage. Secondly, it uses pro-vitamin B5 to up the resilience of the hair shaft, offering an ‘anti-split end’ effect. Finally, it’s infused with seriously hydrating hyaluronic acid to keep your hair in overall great condition.

A velvety-soft, thick head of hair is within your reach!

3. Follow with a super-nourishing conditioner

{Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Hydrating Conditioner} is the next step in the brand’s anti-hair-fall collection. It’s ideal for those who are experiencing hair loss because it delivers hydration without the weight – perfect for those looking to conceal sparse hair with plenty of volume.

Let it sit for 1-3 minutes before rinsing for the ingredients to be successfully absorbed.

4. Encourage growth with a scalp treatment

Ideal for anyone up against mild to moderate hair loss, {VIRTUE’s Flourish Density Booster} is a lightweight spray powered by keratin that works to cleanse, purify and enrich your scalp, creating the foundation for new growth. As each new strand emerges, it’s supplied with the nourishment needed to stay strong and resist breakage. Fuller hair will be yours in no time!

Lift hair into sections and spray directly onto the scalp (your hair can be dry or damp). Gently massage and leave in for it to work its magic.

5. Add extra fullness with a leave-in lotion

Bring fullness to thin hair with a volumising leave-in treatment like {Innersense’s Create Volume Lotion}. Uniting Certified Organic honey, aloe vera, wheat amino acids and eucalyptus, this formula adds moisture, shine, fullness and manageability to even the finest or most damaged of hair.

Use your fingertips to work the product roots to end, then blow dry or style and prepare to hair toss all day and night.

6. Take supplements to boost your hair from within

As we’ve said, hair loss can be caused by a whoooole host of factors, and that includes nutrient deficiency. {Philip Kingsley’s Tricho Complex} has just the right levels of vitamins and minerals to enhance and maintain the health of your mane, including iron, complex B vitamins, vitamins C and D, biotin and selenium. This daily supplement will prevent hair loss and encourage hair growth to leave you with longer, stronger and healthier hair.
