Whether you have long hair, short hair, or anything in between — hair loss is a real issue that we have to deal with. Hair loss can be genetic or it can be caused by years and years of damaging behaviors. At Brilliance New York, we believe that protecting your hair with proactive hair care is crucial for keeping your hair strong and healthy, so we’ve looked into ways that can help you prevent hair loss with haircare tips that will keep your hair looking brilliant!
Can Hair Loss Be Prevented?
Hair loss can be caused by a wide array of issues– from applying harsh chemicals to your hair to your predisposition to have thin hair because of your maternal grandfather’s hairline being passed on to you (we’re kidding but yes, we’ve heard this reason before). And while there isn’t a whole lot that you can do to prevent hair loss if you’re genetically destined for it, there are ways that you can minimize hair-damaging behaviors to prevent thinning and weakening your hair in ways that will lead to hair loss.
While you might be tempted to change your hair’s color and texture to express yourself, too much toying with your hair can cause you to experience hair loss. In order to keep your hair healthy, you should try to not play with its natural state too much. Keep your hair at your natural hair color, avoid bleaching it, and avoid applying too much head with blowdryers and curling irons.
If you do dye your hair and play with the texture, try to give your hair time to recover in between colors.
Choose Hair Products Wisely
When it comes to caring for your hair, the best thing that you can do for yourself is to invest in quality hair products that cause little to no damage to your hair! On top of skipping the at-home hair color and bleaching products, you can swap your shampoo and conditioner out for a gentle, nutrient-rich shampoo and a moisturizing conditioner that reinforces and protects your hair. Try the Essential Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner from Brilliance New York.
Protect Your Hair From Heat
When you aren’t careful about how you work with your hair, the heat from hair styling tools can damage your hair and cause it to become thin and weak. There are a few ways to help prevent this. First, styling your hair with quality hair tools can help you prevent damaging your hair with excessive heat.
Although many hair tools can reach temperatures as high as 450 degrees, the sweet spot to prevent heat damage is in the 300s. We have hair tools with a digital display screen and easy temperature controls to help you have more control over how much heat you use! Additionally, you will want to use a heat protectant spray or treatment on your hair to prevent your hair from frying. A quality heat protector will put a protective layer between your hair and the heat. These are some of the best investments you can make when it comes to preventing hair loss from heat damage.
