  • Genetics: It’s important to recognize the role of genetics in your hair-related issues. Men, in particular, should be aware of their family history, as they could experience male pattern baldness.
  • Health Conditions: Certain health conditions and diseases can lead to hair loss.
  • Medications: Hair loss has also been associated with some medications, so check their side effects.

How you treat your hair can also affect how well you retain it. Utilizing certain products and treatments can damage your hair and lead to extreme damage and hair loss.

Adopting Hair Loss Prevention Habits

Consulting a medical professional is critical to preventing further hair loss. They can check the condition of your hair regularly and discern possible signs of damage as well as the culprit of your hair loss.

You must also prioritize gentle shampoos and conditioners when buying hair care products. And, if you utilize hot tools frequently on your hair, limit this to special occasions to prevent further damage. Also, be sure to avoid hairstyles that place excessive strain on your hair and scalp.

Furthermore, while you may not be able to quit taking medications or treatments that are causing your hair loss, there may be other medications your doctor can recommend.
