Hair loss occurs for many different reasons, and not all of them are related to aging. Positively, there are a variety of ways you can prevent excessive hair loss without burning your hands with expensive products. However, see your doctor if you don’t know the cause of your hair loss or have additional symptoms. Lets discuss how to stop hair fall/loss immediately with 7 easy methods:
1. Inversion method to physically instills higher blood flow to scalp
It is believed that hanging your head upside down increases blood flow to the scalp, stimulating hair growth. Some methods even suggest doing a headstand, handstand, or using an inversion table.
The inversion method involves two primary steps:
- Massaging your scalp nightly with an oil
- Turning your head upside down for up to 4 minutes
This method is supposed to help you gain up to four inches in hair growth.
If you’re going to give the inversion method a try, be sure to stop if you feel any dizziness or discomfort.
The inversion method isn’t recommended if you’re pregnant or have:
- high blood pressure
- heart disease
- ear infection
- detached retina
- back pain or spinal injury
2. Scalp massages to stimulate blood flow
In order to stimulate the blood circulation and channel more nutrients to the hair roots, a scalp massage is the ideal solution for anyone who wants to grow their hair faster. The increased circulation ensures the best starting conditions for the hair strands. Don’t forget that a massage for the scalp has many advantages for our general well-being and really helps us relax. There are professionals who can perform a scalp massage, but you can do it yourself.
3. Caffeine, popular stimulant in hair growth serums
The main benefit of caffeine is that it can help promote hair growth straight from the root in the initial phases of hair growth. It does this through targeting a hormone called ‘DHT’, which causes hair loss. DHT can prevent vitamins, proteins and minerals from helping hair follicles to grow. Caffeine combats this by causing hair cells to produce more ‘ATP’, which is a form of energy that encourages hair to grow.
Additionally, topical application of caffeine in baldness can be attributed to inhibition of phosphodiesterase, improvement in barrier function, follicular penetration, stimulation and promotion of hair growth. Thus it appears to be a useful adjuvant in the management of hair fall.
4. Derma rolling to prompt micro wounding and production of collagen as well as improved blood flow
Using a dermaroller regularly can stimulate blood circulation to the scalp, encourage cell turnover, and increase the effectiveness of topical hair growth formula.
Let’s explore some of the science-based research that touches on the ways the dermaroller , can help you to regrow your hair.
The dermaroller has been found to increase collagen production in the skin through the tiny, subcutaneous wounding that occurs during use.
After the skin is pricked by the roller, the body increases circulation to the area to fight inflammation and increase healing.
A by-product of this process is collagen production.
Now that collagen is stimulated in the scalp, the cells in the wounded area begin to heal and mature, and stem cells begin to proliferate, contributing to hair follicle regeneration.
5. Castor oil with its main active ingredient being ricinoleic acid ( activate receptors in hair follicles)
Castor Oil can positively impact hair by stimulating circulation to boost its growth and by locking in moisture with its humectant properties. With its anti-fungal properties, Castor Oil can treat scalp infections by eliminating the bacteria and microorganisms that can cause hair fall, dandruff, and infection. To slow the appearance of graying hairs, Castor Oil can be applied to the scalp to prevent hair from the further loss of pigment. With humectant properties that lock in moisture, Castor Oil can treat dry and damaged hair, making it thicker, shinier, softer, and smoother.
6. Massage essential oils into your scalp to improve your circulation: We recommend Rosemerry oil.
