Massage your scalp

Massaging your head in the shower improves blood flow to the scalp. This not only means a better environment for hair growth, but also aids the penetration of any treatment shampoos you use.

Eat properly

Hair thrives on protein, iron, zinc, and vitamin B12. So, eat more lean meats, leafy greens, nuts, beans, and fish.


According to practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine, hair health is tied to two things - kidney energy and the blood, which nourish the hair. And so, acupuncture and Chinese herbs are key to making your hair healthy and reduce hair loss.

Cut down on styling

Hair dryers and irons, especially if you are colouring your hair frequently, can cause breakage and thinning. Avoid or reduce the usage of these products.

Check for deficiencies

A blood test can detect your ferritin (iron stored in the blood) and vitamin D level. Low levels of both can lead to hair loss, and the fix could be as simple as adding an iron or vitamin supplement to your diet.-Times Of India
