None of us want to experience these types of hair issues, but unfortunately, many of us do. Here are some quick tips to try and keep your hair, scalp and stress in check.
1. See a doctor. If you feel that you are experiencing any of these disorders, the first step should be an expert. They can properly diagnose you, and if severe enough can possibly offer you medication to help counteract the ailment.
2. Healthier diet. Re-evaluate your current eating habits. Are the foods you are eating contributing to your stress? Are they not benefiting your hair growth? Try to maintain at least 3 healthy well-balanced meals a day, that are high in protein, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Stay away from processed and sugary foods!
3. Exercise. “Exercise reduces levels of the body’s stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. It also stimulates the production of endorphins, chemicals in the brain that are the body’s natural painkillers and mood elevators”, as stated in an Harvard Health Publications article that discusses aerobic exercise and its benefits to relieving stress. You should try it if you haven’t! I even like to just take my dog for a long walk some days. Getting your body moving and the fresh are, it really clears your mind!
4. Sleep. Beauty sleep is real, and its not just for your face, but for your heart and mind as well! I personally prefer to get to bed early, so that I may rise early and get my day started. You may also find doing this relieves stress of feeling unproductive. I know when I wake up early, I feel that I can accomplish more in the day!
