If you are losing hair at an alarming rate, you can combat the effects of lackluster locks and sparser hairline with the following remedies: • Change Your Hairstyle: Do not choose hairstyles that pull on your hairlines. Braids and tight ponytails pull on small hairs that comprise your hairline, leading to hair loss. If you have to put your hair in a ponytail, use elastics that don’t contain metal. This way, your hair doesn’t get tangled in the elastic and pulled out while removing the ponytail. • Avoid High Heat Hair Tools: Heat can damage your hair, causing the bonds in the strands to fracture. If you want to use a curling iron or hair straightener, don’t leave it in a single area for more than 10 seconds. Also, if you burn your fingers or hear sizzling, you’re burning your hair or the heat setting is too high. Allow your hair to dry naturally and use heat-protecting spray when using styling tools. • Stay Away from Chemical Processing: Numerous chemical processes available at salons damage your hair.
