First off, it’s important to understand one of the basic rules of having a healthy head of hair: everyone sheds, all the time. It’s completely normal to shed anywhere from 50-100 strands of hair per day, so there’s no need to worry if you notice hair on your clothes or furniture from time to time. That being said, if you’re losing more and more hair or you’re finding that the hair you’ve shed isn’t growing back, it may be a good idea to take action.
Shedding hair, also referred to as hair loss or hair fall, occurs at the root. It can be tricky to pinpoint the exact cause of your hair fall, because there is an enormous range of triggers that could potentially be the culprit. For example, stress and hormones can be a major source of excessive hair shedding. To counteract this, try to work on your mental health and eliminate stressors or causes for concern in your life (easier said than done, we know!).
Another great way to attack shedding hair is to keep your scalp clean. This helps you to avoid clogged follicles, meaning that they can hold onto more strands of hair and stop you from shedding so much. Elvive Full Resist Reinforcing Fragile Hair Shampoo could be just the ticket. Helping to rebuild the strength of your hair with Elvive’s powerful reinforcing formula (featuring biotin, vitamin B5, and arginine), this hair strengthening shampoo can have a massive impact on hair fall.
Another great way to reduce hair shedding is to increase the flow of blood to your scalp. There are many ways to do this, from scalp massages to improving your diet. However, hair oils are perhaps one of the most effective methods. L’Oréal offers a broad range of hair oil products that you may wish to experiment with, including the Elvive Extraordinary Oil range.
