(NewsTarget) Scalp inflammation, poor diet, dehydration, stress, genetics and hormone imbalances are factors that can cause hair to fall out. Toxic hair products and over-styling can also damage the hair, causing it to thin. Incorporating vitamins and whole foods and choosing all natural hair products can prevent hair loss, thinning and balding.

Condition of the Scalp and Hair Loss

Since hair grows from a healthy follicle, treatment needs to address the condition of the scalp and the reasons why hair is falling out in the first place. Many people have adverse reactions to many of the toxic ingredients found in shampoos, which can corrode hair follicles.

The chemical ingredients found in shampoos, such as sodium laurel sulfate (kerosene based) or propylene glycol (a base for antifreeze) are absorbed by the body. They have been proven to impair the hair's ability to grow.

When these chemicals are absorbed into the tissues, the blood flow to the hair follicle is reduced. Over a period of time, the sebum of the hair shaft crystallizes, damaging follicles and provoking hair loss.

As a first step in restoring scalp health, get rid of all toxic hair shampoos and conditioners. Resolve to buy only all-natural hair care products. Watch out for fake organic products, read all labels and undertake some research to find out what exactly goes into the average bottle of shampoo or conditioner.

In addition, incorporate plenty of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables into the diet so that the body gets all the essential nutrients it needs. Flush toxins from the body by drinking plenty of pure water.

Styling Tips for Thinning Hair

While hair recovers and re-grows, consider cutting it short. A trendy, short hair cut will look more natural and more than likely make the individual concerned feel more confident.

A short, pixie cut works well for women of all age groups. A spiky bob haircut, accented with soft bangs, can be interesting, as can a spiky, layered haircut. Ask a professional hairstylist for advice.

For men, shaving all the hair off is seen as perfectly natural and acceptable these days and can be a far better option than trying to disguise the fact that hair is thinning.

Avoid using styling products such as gel which not only contains toxic ingredients, but also makes thin hair clump together, exposing the scalp and accentuating the fact that hair has been falling out. Hair dyes are notoriously toxic. Use a natural product to color hair, such as henna for dark hair and lemon juice for blond hair. Again, be wary of fake products. Some brands of henna contain metallic compounds and many henna producers have incomplete or false labeling on their products.
