To-the-Point Tips on Preventing Hair Loss

There are plenty of ways you can be in control of your hair’s health, and preventing hair loss. Read on for to-the-point tips on ensuring that you’re doing all you can to protect your hair.


Getting proper nutrition is essential for healthy hair and preventing hair loss. Water, protein, biotin (part of the vitamin B complex), vitamins A, B6, B12, C, copper, iron, omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, calcium, folic acid, and magnesium all play a part in maintaining a healthy scalp, skin, and hair.

Health care:

  • Healthy blood circulation is also important for hair growth: Using your fingertips to massage your scalp a few times a month will increase the circulation in your scalp. Tight fitting caps and hats will cause poor circulation in your scalp and will also cause build-up of sweat and grime.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • If you live a high-stress lifestyle, try reducing stress by taking some time out daily just to relax. Excessive stress is believed to induce hair loss.
  • Finally, see a doctor or a dermatologist for advice or treatment if you have concerns about serious hair loss.


  • If you color your hair, limit coloring it to once every two months. Hair coloring damages your hair, so the less frequently you color it the better.
  • Use a good conditioner, and trim any split ends.
  • Gentle combing or brushing of your hair will help break up hardened oils that clog your pores. Depending on your hair’s unique need, it may be recommended that you comb or brush up to a couple hundred strokes in the morning and at night. Avoid putting too much physical stress on your hair. Brush or comb your hair gently, and don’t pull your hair when you brush. Avoid braids and ponytails if possible; they place constant stress on your hair.

Natural elements:

Avoid excessive wind, sun, and heat (such as from hair dryers, hot showers, and curling irons) on your hair.

Hair care myths

Hair Care Myths and Facts

Let’s get right down to some downright hair care myths, and facts, shall we?

Cutting your hair makes it grow faster

Nope, it doesn’t.

Split ends can be repaired

If by repaired, you mean strands that were damaged but are now no longer damaged – er, no. Once damaged, always damaged in the case of our strands, except when they’re cut off. No ifs, ands, or you-knows. There are tons of products available, however, that can serve as, well, glues, in a sense. These can artificially put strands back together temporarily, even giving them greater strength than normal, but once these products are washed out or worn off, you’re back to the same, if not more so, damaged strands.

Brushing hair makes it healthier/shinier

It doesn’t – it actually leads to split ends. Detangle and style your hair, but don’t brush if it’s not needed. Brushing can help distribute oils down the hair strands, which causes the hair to look shinier, but simply applying any oils/products using your hands is better for your hair.

Taking vitamins can help it grow faster/longer

What about herbs, vitamins, hair products, faster growth during summer, or what about when you’re pregnant? It’s certainly possible, but you’d have to be hopped up on a lot of something in order for hair to grow more quickly. For example, during pregnancy, estrogens extend the hair’s growing cycle, making you lose hair at a slower than normal rate — which leads to thicker hair. Hair conditioners and moisturizers don’t make hair grow faster, though Bear Fruit Hair ingredients are geared toward helping retain moisture and healthy hair. We wouldn’t suggest doing anything to purposely try to make your hair grow more quickly. Chances are, you don’t know what you’re doing, and it’s perhaps likely that you could cause long-term risk to your scalp and your body’s chemical balance by using pills or an overabundance of other things. Overuse of natural items can even put you at risk, or simply have no beneficial effect beyond what your body normally requires. What your body doesn’t flush out could cause overdose in your system. Good health helps your hair grow at its regular rate, though even the best health cannot cause it to grow faster than normal. Now put down the pills…slowly.

Washing frequently keeps it healthy

It can certainly help keep your hair and scalp clean, which prevents clogged scalp pores and dryness – which is indeed healthy living. But too frequent cleansing will also cause dryness. So pay attention to your hair’s needs.
