Slowing Down Hair Loss

A woman's hair is her crowning glory. That has been the old proverb that women have held true for years. Unless you're a woman who's trying to make a fashion statement with bald hair, like Natalie Portman or the famous Demi Moore in her role in G.I. Jane, most women often feel uneasy about the idea of losing hair, or worse, going bald. A lot of women ask if there is a natural way to slow down the progression of hair loss. If you are one of them, you should check out this list below.


This may be something you have never heard of, but caffeine can also help in slowing down female baldness. Caffeine can help decrease DHT which is known to damage hair follicles. You can get caffeine with either coffee or tea, not only does it slow down hair thinning, but it can also ease the associated mood swings as well.

Lean Protein

What does lean protein mean? Lean protein can be found in skinless poultry. This is a good source of lean protein because it is also rich in iron and zinc, what is also known to trigger hair-loss if you lack these vitamins. You see, hair mostly consists of keratin, and it needs protein for you to have a strong and healthy glowing hair.


You should eat a wide variety of vegetables. This can be carrots, peas, cauliflower and so on. All of these are good sources of vitamins, specifically B6, foliate and biotin which aids in slowing down hair loss and can even promote hair growth.

Hair Care

Although foods can help in slowing down and promoting hair growth, it is also about how you take care of your hair. Avoid using products that have alcohol in them such as gels, as it strips your hair of its natural oils that strengthens your hair and prevents it from breaking. You should also brush your hair gently. Vigorous brushing often leads to breakage of hair strands. Towel drying (when you rub your hair with your towel) can also lead to further hair breakage. When your hair is wet, it becomes more elastic thus making it more prone to breaking.

These are just a few tips that can help you slow down hair loss. However for those that want a more direct approach to stopping and preventing hair loss, you may want to opt for a product you can use now that you can apply to your scalp and without a doctor's prescription. There are several good products available but many more that simply do not help. Be sure to do your research to find a reputable product with good testimonials and reviews.
