After clarifying the cause of the disease, medication should be used according to the doctor’s instructions.

For example, topical minoxidil is used externally , finasteride is taken orally. In particular, minoxidil acts locally to stimulate local blood circulation , promote hair growth, and can be used to treat hair loss due to many different causes.

You should pay attention to eating lots of foods rich in protein, vitamins, iron , and other nutrients such as eggs, meat, beans, seafood, green leafy vegetables… At the same time, avoid dieting and picky eating , ensuring adequate nutrition. nutrition.

Unhealthy eating habits such as dieting and picky eating will lead to a lot of hair loss.

Sleep habits

Staying up late will affect the body’s normal metabolism , leading to endocrine disorders. We secrete growth hormone when we sleep , and at night, staying up late will interfere with the normal secretion of this hormone, thereby affecting hair growth.

Try to ensure enough sleep time, avoid staying up late , maintain the body’s normal metabolism and excretion process. If you go to bed early and wake up early, your health will be better and your hair will also be more beautiful.

The first two types are chemical damage , physical damage, both are easy to understand. The issue of cleaning the scalp needs important reminders.

Emotional stress

The impact of mood changes and mental stress on human health cannot be ignored. Bad emotions and stress in the long term will have a negative impact on hair growth and health.

In the human body, stress causes a series of physiological changes, including an increase in the secretion of a hormone called cortisol . This hormone can interfere with the body’s normal metabolism , affecting the hair growth cycle. When exposed to high levels of stress over a long period of time, cortisol levels continue to increase, leading to hair follicle atrophy.

In addition, prolonged negative emotions such as stress, anxiety, and depression will also negatively impact the human immune system, leading to reduced immunity, thereby increasing the risk of inflammation. In the scalp, inflammation will destroy the cells and tissues around the hair follicles, affecting the growth and health of hair.
