Following are some of the tips that will help you boost your results after undergoing a hair transplant.
You are what you eat
“You are what you eat” is an overly used phrase, which we never take seriously. We rarely associate the health of our hair and scalp with the kind of food which we consume. There are 5 kinds of vitamins which can help to improve the strength and appearance of your hair.
It helps in repairing and making the scalp moist. Hair loss treatment usually contains Vitamin A, as it helps in the stimulation of hair growth. Kale, spinach, carrots, milk, sweet potatoes, yoghurt and eggs are some of the common sources of Vitamin A. However, too much of Vitamin A can cause hair loss.
The vitamin B complex not only helps to maintain the strength and moisture of your hair, but it also carries oxygen and nutrients to your scalp. Deficiency of Vitamin B can cause poorly nourished hair follicle cells. Leafy greens, whole grains and meat are great sources of Vitamin B.
Helps in stimulating collagen production, which is crucial to maintain the connective tissues, strong skin and healthy hair strands. Vitamin C also helps to fight tissue stress which is caused by free radicals. It protects the cell from within the hair follicle and the blood vessels which supply nutrient and oxygen to the scalp.
Crucial for making haemoglobin, iron carries oxygen to the cells. Chronic iron deficiency can cause hair thinning in both men and women. Red meat, spinach and eggs are a great source of iron.
Zinc is extremely helpful in curbing hair follicle regression and improving tissue healing. Some patients who have been suffering from alopecia areata, an oral zinc supplement might be beneficial. Zinc can be found in beef, oysters and pumpkin seeds.
Reducing the stress
Shedding hair is very normal. On average, a person sheds about 100-150 strands of hair per day. However, if you are losing more than that, then there might other factors. Especially when the hair loss is sudden, then it happens due to stress. Illness, extreme stress or trauma can cause hormonal imbalance temporarily which may cause a type of shock hair loss called telogen effluvium. However, this is usually temporary. Stress-related hair loss can be prevented with the help of a few techniques. Practising self-care like getting enough sleep or invigorating activity throughout the day, exercising as much as possible, can help to reduce the stress and stress-induced hair loss.
