Men or women, we all lose hair daily. But sometimes we lose a lot of hair very quickly, or the hair stops growing back. Discover, in our article, the causes related to hair loss and our advice to remedy this.

The causes of hair loss

Hair loss is a normal event that is compensated by the growth of new hair. However, in some cases, hair loss can be abnormal. The causes are very variable. Among them are:

  • Seasonal falls, which usually occur in the fall. They often cause a lot of stress for some people.
  • Iron deficiency or thyroid dysfunction. In these cases, hair loss sets in over time and the hair becomes poorer if nothing is done.
  • Reactional hair loss: in some cases, major stress, depression, rapid weight loss or intense tiredness also cause abnormal hair loss.
  • Fatty dandruff can choke the hair follicle by accumulating on the scalp and contribute to hair loss.
  • Childbirth: hair loss after childbirth is a normal phenomenon called “postpartum hair loss”. During pregnancy, the production of estrogen hormones is strongly stimulated but sops when the pregnancy ends. It is this sudden hormonal change that causes the “baby blues” and can also affect the hair cycle. 

Hair Loss, what to do?

Best Practices

To prevent hair loss, you should limit all hair dyes, gels and lacquers as well as dry shampoos.

Then, you should use a soft shampoo, like our So Vintage Shampoo Milk Cream, and massage your scalp. This will make it supple and consequently, oxygenate it thanks to the vascularization to support the growth of hair. Our Shea Butter, combined with moringa oil and castor oil, are excellent for strengthening the scalp, limiting hair loss, and promoting hair growth.

Finally, eat a healthy and stable diet, rich in proteins and vitamin B. These ingredients are most involved in the cell regeneration of hair follicles. Try to eat white meat, cereals, fruits, and vegetables. In addition, iron improves the oxygenation of the hair bulb.

In order not to damage your hair too much and to limit hair loss, some actions should be avoided:
  • When you dry your hair or brush it, be delicate so as not to damage your hair and scalp.
  • Eliminate all silicone and sulfate based shampoos and treatments. They tend to suffocate skin pores and hair scales.
  • Avoid washing your hair with water that is too hot and wearing hair elastics that are too tight.
  • Do not wash your hair too frequently.
  • As for your diet, avoid saturated fatty acids, alcohol and tobacco.
