Of the many things that a woman doesn’t want to see when she looks in the mirror, it’s hair loss. It’s perfectly normal to lose up to 100 strands of hair per day but any more than that and there may be a problem. 

In most cases, the causes of hair loss in women are harmless and can be treated in order to encourage healthy hair growth again. However, you will need to speak to a medical professional who can assist you with a diagnosis first. 

Whether you’ve noticed your hair is slightly thinner or you simply want to keep your hair healthy, there are a few things that you can do to strengthen your hair. 

7 Tips for Women Who Want Stronger Hair

1. Keep Heat Styling to a Minimum

While most women can’t cut out heat styling completely, it does help to keep it to a minimum or at least get rid of the tools that use high heat. Heat styling gradually damages your hair, causing it to break and fall out. If you hear a sizzling sound, the heat is definitely too high. It’s also essential to use a heat protection spray to avoid damage. 

2. Don’t Make Your Hairstyles Too Tight

Hairstyles that tug on your hairline will place strain on your hair. The hair around your hairline is more delicate, which means it will fall out quite easily if there is constant tension.  If you do need to tie your hair up in a ponytail or bun, try not to make it too tight and use elastic bands that won’t damage your hair.

3. Be Wary of Chemicals

Many women who end up visiting hair loss clinics such as were using chemicals to straighten or change the colour of their hair. Chemical processing will gradually weaken the hair and cause hair loss, which is why it’s best to stay away from these types of products and treatments if you can help it. If you do dye and straighten your hair quite regularly, be sure to use a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week.

4. Use Hair Restoration Products

If you already have thin or weak hair, use products that are designed for strength and restoration. These types of products contain specific oils and minerals that encourage healthy hair growth and get rid of the bacteria that can cause hair loss. 

5. Watch What You Eat

Your hair needs specific nutrients to be healthy and strong, which is why it’s important to consume enough iron, protein and vitamin A. If you want to strengthen your hair, add more nuts, fish and leafy greens to your weekly meals. There is also the option of adding supplements to your diet for an extra boost.

6. Get a Scalp Massage

Whether you treat yourself to a professional scalp massage or you take some time to massage your own scalp while you condition your hair, your scalp will thank you for it. Your hair follicles need good blood circulation to be healthy and a scalp massage helps increase blood flow, with relaxation being an added bonus.

7. Consider a Topical Treatment

There are also a number of topical medications that are designed to slow down hair loss and stimulate the hair follicles. Speak to a hair loss specialist about the topical medications you could use to promote regrowth and achieve thicker, healthier hair.

As you can see, having stronger, healthier hair is not rocket science. By making a few simple lifestyle changes and knowing when to speak to a professional, there is no reason why hair loss needs to be an issue in your life.
