According to a report by Euromonitor International, published in May 2016, hair care is considered an important ritual in the GCC countries, especially Saudi Arabia. In fact, this is one country that registered the highest growth in the sale of hair care products in the world. The report went on to say that women in Saudi Arabia spent heavily on high quality hair care products, both through retail channels as well as through salons.
While the causes of hair loss and thinning are many, some basic steps to promote growth can prove to be effective hair loss treatment. If the problem persists, it is best to consult a professional and address the problem from the root (pun not intended)! Here’s a look at some such steps you can take at home.
1. Get a Head Massage
What do you do to make your face look good? You get a facial, right? It works exactly the same way for your hair as well. Getting a good massage can keep those luscious locks and your scalp healthy. All you need to do is apply some oil and rub it in gently for about 10 minutes. Leave it in for some time or even overnight and shampoo it off the next day. Just do it once in a week and the results will speak for themselves.
2. Wash Well
It is important to keep your scalp and hair clean. However, shampooing too often can lead to the loss of natural oils, which are essential for hair health. Professionals recommend that you shampoo every alternate day or, if possible, twice a week. In addition, choose a shampoo that does not contain parabens and sulfates, chemicals that are bad for you and the environment.
3. Use a Wooden Comb
One of the biggest reasons of hair fall is using an old and fine comb. On the other hand, a wide-wooden comb is more gentle and provides a massaging effect on your hair. So, replace your plastic comb with a wooden one and see the results.
Getting involved in physical activities is just as good for your physique as it is for your hair. When you exercise, sweat is released and unclogs the hair follicles to make way for new hair. It also increases blood flow to the scalp, which is essential for healthy hair growth.
5. A Healthy Diet
Include fruits and vegetables that are rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, iron, calcium, biotin and zinc in your diet. Eat oranges, bananas and leafy vegetables to provide the essential nutrients for healthy growth.
6. Opt for a Good Hair Loss Treatment
If you experience continuous hair loss, then don't be shy to consult a specialist. This is the only way you can identify the cause and receive the right hair loss treatment. Make sure you choose an experienced and trusted clinic for best results.
