How to protect against and manage Hair Loss & Hair BreakageRare Earth
Hair is the crown you wear every day, so it’s critical you look after it. It’s normal to be concerned if you find hair loss & hair breakage. Here are a few tips and tricks to identify thinning or breaking hair and manage it.
Where: Hair breakage happens between the mid-section and the end of the hair.
Cause: Usually caused by thermal damage, harsh colouring, and strong brushing
Prevention: Protect your hair from your thermal equipment, use Aveda Colour (which is naturally derived) and use a gentle Dessata de-tangling brush to remove knots.
For a small investment, Dessata brushes can de-tangle your hair without pulling or breakage. The flexible bristles take the stress from your hair while leaving it healthy and shiny. These great brushes can be used on both wet and dry hair and come in great colours and styles, it’s really a must-have if you want to take care of your hair
Cure: To build strength in your hair, the best way to do this is with hair products designed for this purpose. We trust the Aveda ‘Damage Remedy’ range which is design specifically to strengthen your hair. To build naturally strong hair, we recommend you eat a balanced diet with a focus on foods that strengthen your hair from the inside:
- Eggs Provide Protein.
- Spinach and Other Dark Leafy Greens Provide Iron.
- Citrus Fruits to Get Your Dose of Vitamin C.
- Nuts and Seeds for Omega-3 Fatty Acids.
- Whole Grains to Obtain Biotin.
- Carrots are Rich in Vitamin A.
Where: Hair falls out from at the hair roots and whilst it’s a shocking fact, most people lose anywhere from 50 to 100 strands of hair each day (more on the days when hair is washed you can lose up to 250 strands).
For those who don’t plan on counting their hair every day, there are ways to know when hair is thinning or being lost at a higher rate. When waking up in the morning, there may be an usually large amount of hair on your pillow. When you comb your hair (especially without tugging, which can pull the hair out), more than normal will be left in the comb
Cause: Age, stress, medication, illness, pregnancy
Prevention: To keep your hair strong, start with keeping your body healthy. Half of keeping hair healthy is diet and stress. So make sure you treat yourself by ensuring your hair service is done in a calming and relaxing atmosphere (that is an escape from the busy life you live). At Rare Earth, our signature head and neck massage will help you transition to a relaxed space quickly
Cure: It’s essential you use the right products that do not build up or clog the follicles. If the hair follicles are blocked, your hair will have difficulty growing. We trust the Aveda ‘Invati’ Range which is designed to cleanse the scalp and promote healthy hair.
