It is said that we shed about 50 - 100 strands a day. There are different types of shedding: normal shedding, shedding due to medication, shedding due to stress, and seasonal shedding. Some people shed more than others due to different reasons.
Here are 4 ways you can reduce shedding:
Black Tea Rinse
According to the American Hair Loss Association, the hair loss is caused by a hormone called Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It shrinks hair follicles causing healthy hair to have difficulty surviving. Black Tea contains caffeine which has the ability to counteract the effects of DHT.
Excessive shedding is known as telogen effluvium. Garlic contains allicin, a sulfur compound that is released in garlic and onion when crushed. Application and consumption of this helps stimulate blood flow which helps reduce shedding.
Rice Water Rinse
Rice water contains amino acids that strengths hair. It also contains inositol that is a carbohydrate that helps repair damaged hair and promote healthier hair.
We all know the benefits of protein. It strengthens and repairs hair. When hair is strengthen it has less chance to shed prematurely.
