What Causes Hair Loss and How to Stimulate Healthy Hair Growth


Hair Loss can be caused by a variety of reasons.  When I was in my twenties I had alopecia due to stress.  I know what you’re thinking about “stress” in your twenties.  I stressed about everything back then, even growing older 😉and as I grew older I learned to accept the aging process with an open heart.   My hair eventually grew back, after being treated with Vitamin B injections in the affected areas.   

Stress is a culprit that spark changes in your body’s routine physiological functions, certain medication can also change the physiological balance in your system, diet, lifestyle changes, illness, fungus infections, and genetics are just a few issues that can affect your hair growth.

Did you know that 90% of your hair goes through a growing phase that lasts approximately 2 – 3 years and grows about 1/2″ per month?.  It then goes through a resting phase lasting  3 – 4 months before the hair falls out and new hair is replaced.     Typically we shed approximately 100 hairs each day, it may seem like a lot but it’s not.  A head full of hair usually is 120,000-150,000 strands of hair. 

How to Stimulate Hair Growth

1.  Eat Healthily
2.  Drink lots of water to hydrate
3.  Exercise
4.  Don’t smoke
5.  Keep the scalp clean
6.  Use gentle Shampoo (natural/organic)
7.  Use hydrating conditioner (natural/organic)
8.  Massage scalp regularly
9.  Don’t use too many products as they will build up and clog
10. Use a silk scarf at night to tie hair or a silk pillowcase

In addition, you can mix a couple teaspoons of white vinegar with a cup of water and rinse your hair.  It's a good way to cleanse and stimulate your scalp and leaves a beautiful shine.  A few drops of peppermint oil in a spray bottle with water is also invigorating.  

These tips worked for me, try them and see if they make a difference for you.
