Women’s hair loss is a subject rarely discussed among the glitz and glamour of our celebrity obsessed media. However, if you find yourself feeling distressed and alone as your hair loses its natural lusciousness, then there are a few words of wisdom that will help you answer the question of how to prevent hair loss for women.

It’s widely understood that women’s hair loss can be caused by a variety of lifestyle and medical conditions. If you have been diagnosed with a medical condition then treatments are case specific, but many of those suffering from thinning or shedding hair could make some simple changes to their lifestyle and particularly their intake of key vitamins that help to promote the hair’s repair and growth cycle.

However, first of all let’s talk about the elephant in the room. Stress.

Seemingly a cause for just about every physical and psychological ailment under the sun, stress is of course a factor to consider. So, if you feel that you are a natural born worrier, and often find yourself breathless in a flurry of overwhelming busyness, perhaps it’s time to chill out.

Taking the time to invest in yourself and treat your body like a temple can certainly pay the bills in many aspects of life. A relaxed person is in control of body and mind, so you may well find that by relieving the pressure of day-to-day life, some of those bad habits like subconscious hair plucking and nail biting disappear into the ether.

When you treat your mental and physical health with this respect, it makes sense to look into your nutrition and consumption habits too. What you put into your body is often what you get out, but did you know that this can have an effect on hair loss for women too?

Your body requires nutrients to aid the growth of healthy hair by lengthening the anagen (growing) stage of growth. If your diet is lacking in these essentials, then you may benefit from supplementing them with Viviscal Extra Strength, which contains the key nutrients in the form of vitamins, minerals and a unique marine complex AminoMar® that works to nourish hair from within.

The beauty of this approach is that it harnesses your existing biological processes to deliver great results while being completely drug free. Supplementing your diet is a targeted way to improve hair thickness and existing hair growth that is non-invasive, and may well save you extreme measures of surgery.

In addition to supplements, you can make a few adaptations to your diet to ensure that you are getting enough protein, iron and other vitamins.

Starting your day with a breakfast of scrambled eggs with spinach, served alongside a hot milky drink and a glass of fresh orange juice is a delicious way to help prevent hair loss.

All of the above are packed full of fantastic protein, important vitamins or the crucial iron that your body needs to promote healthy hair growth. Not to mention, when prepared with love and attention they can create a healthy and mouth-watering start to the day.

So there you have it! A few tips to help you keep your hair looking long and voluminous, helping to stop female hair loss in its tracks.
