The Best Ways to Combat Hair Shedding

Hair shedding is a very real issue! Whether you deal with chronic hair loss or simply shed a lot of strands every time you wash or brush your hair, it can be helpful to know the causes of hair shedding and understand some of the simplest ways to combat it.

Why Do I Shed?
While the true reasons can be different for everyone, some of the most common causes of hair loss and shedding are: Stress, Hair Damage, Hormonal Changes, Weight Loss, Childbirth, and more. While many of these causes are best addressed by a doctor, we have a few helpful tips on how to prevent further hair loss when it comes to keeping your hair as healthy and strong as possible.

Don’t Over-Style
This may seem pretty basic, but it’s a helpful tip nonetheless! While we love and encourage trying out new styling tools and playing around with fun hairstyles, over-styling your hair can contribute to hair loss. Excessive pulling into tight styles or exposing your strands to lots of heat damage from using styling tools can weaken your strands, resulting in damage and hair loss. We’re all for trying out new styles, but try to give your hair a break every now and then!

Adjust Your Routine
An enriching cleanse and conditioning routine is key when it comes to keeping hair from shedding. Most importantly, find a shampoo and conditioner that don’t just address the hair, but also address the scalp. The scalp is where hair growth begins. If pores are clogged and follicles are damaged or covered in dead skin, your hair’s growth may be disrupted, and otherwise healthy hair strands may start to fall out. Find a cleanse & conditioner that give the scalp the attention it deserves!

Keep It Healthy
It’s not a myth: regular trims really are as essential! Not only does trimming your ends get rid of dead or damaged hair, it also ensures that your split ends aren’t further damaging your hair strands and causing them to break off. We recommend trimming your hair every six to eight weeks to help keep it healthy and combat shedding.
