Hair Loss SOS: Your guide to stop it with Macafem
Losing abnormal amounts of hair can effectively destroy women’s self-esteem and overall mental stability, one strand at a time. While there are many factors that can contribute to hair loss throughout their reproductive lives, one of the most common is hormonal imbalance, especially during menopause and other times of hormone flux. Luckily, there are ways to keep your beautiful locks right where they should be with the help of Macafem. Find out more below!
Wash and dry your hair properly
First things first, ladies. When washing your hair, gently massage shampoo into the scalp. As it rinses, let the shampoo flow through the length of your hair instead of vigorously rubbing it out. Always remember to use conditioner after every shampooing, following the same steps as with the shampoo. Moreover, when drying your hair, wrap your hair in a towel to absorb the water instead of manually drying it with the towel or using a dryer.
Take extra care
When women are suffering from hair loss, they should avoid damaging the hair further with aggressive styling techniques – including the use of flat irons or curlers or adding extensions – in addition to exposure to chemicals in the hair salon. Moreover, protect it from environmental harm from the sun, pool chlorine, and smog by putting on a swimming cap or wearing a hat, among other measures.
Make sure you’re getting the right nutrients
Beautiful locks can’t flourish on a body that is malnourished. So, optimize your diet with vitamin D and B vitamins, namely biotin (B7), found in liver, fatty fish, egg yolks, nuts, and seeds; collagen-promoting vitamin C from citrus fruits; as well as antioxidant vitamin E found in vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds. Hair loss is also a common symptom of an iron or zinc deficiency. Find both in red meats, spinach, lentils, and oysters.
Find relaxation time
It is clinically proven that stress can be associated with several types of hair loss, making it crucial for those suffering from the symptom to find time to unwind on a daily basis. This can be through a favorite hobby, such as reading, spending quality time with friends, or dancing, as well as with proven relaxation techniques of yoga, tai chi, deep breathing, and meditation. Also, exercising for just 30 minutes a day, five days a week not only lowers cortisol levels and promotes a relaxed state post-workout, but also improves mood and sleeping habits.
Grab your bottle of Macafem for best results
With all of these prevention and management methods put into place, the last and most important part to your revised hair care routine should be the addition of Macafem! Macafem helps prevent hair loss by nourishing the endocrine glands to balance hormones that could be at fault, specifically estrogen and testosterone. By promoting overall hormonal health, other menopause symptoms – like hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, mood swings, and more – will also be kept at bay!
While hair loss is a common hormonal imbalance symptom that is suffered by many women as they transition out of their fertile years, that does not mean they should grin and bear it, nor you. With these comprehensive tips and a bottle of Macafem at your side, your locks will be flourishing in no time!
