*-- Facts to Combat Hair Loss --*

Vitamins and lifestyle play a part in hair growth and loss. Balding is a genetic trait but good nutrition can play a part in the hair growth. Hair masks, shampoos, and leave on conditioners can help prevent hair loss and help build healthy hair though. Below are some facts and tips for hair loss.

-Hair is made of protein and believe it or not, a protein deficiency can cause hair loss. Add protein to your diet to help with hair growth.

-Vitamin C is a necessary component for healthy hair. Make sure to eat foods high in Vitamin C to help maintain healthy hair!

-Biotin and Vitamin B are needed to grow hair. B3 helps increase circulation to the scalp. It's best to take a B complex supplement to increase hair growth.

-Not only does Iron increase circulation in the scalp, but it also increases hair growth.

-Drink at least 4 to 8 cups of water a day, and reduce the amount of alcohol you consume to grow healthy hair.

-Hormones decrease with age and that can cause slow hair growth. Some foods can contain some hormones naturally that can help, but mostly you'll need to consult a doctor to get hormone therapy to help maintain the proper levels.

-Smoking decreases the blood flow to the scalp and can cause a reduction in hair growth.

-Vitamin E stimulates the scalp circulation as well and can be applied to the scalp or taken internally.

-Vitamin A creates shiny vibrant hair! Foods such as eggs, kale, squash and carrots can work with the fat synthesis in the hair follicles and help spurs hair growth.
