Hair loss in women is a natural phenomenon that occurs due to a number of hormonal changes in the body. Some of the primary changes that take place in the female body include menopause, pregnancy, birth of a child, depression, sickness and many others. All of these are instrumental in increasing the hair fall of a woman. Even if there is restricted hair loss, there are chances that the hair might develop spilt ends and break off. To counter this, there are a number of tricks that you can use.

First of all, if you are experiencing split ends or dead hair, then there is no alternative but to cut off the ends. This is the only option available to you, as this hair will not repair the damage already done, no matter what products you use. After this is done, you should apply copious amounts of a reconstructor conditioner that will help your hair to regain some of its health by rebuilding the disulfide bonds that naturally occur in hair and give it strength. The shampoo should be mild detergent, much like the one that you are doing now. This is so that it does not have any adverse effect on the hair follicles, making even new hair growth weak.

In case of heavy hair loss, there are a few hair tips, which you should follow for it to stop. The first thing to do out here is to have a balanced diet that will provide all the necessary nutrients to the hair. The hair roots should be massaged with almond oil that will strengthen the same. If you are unable to get hold of almond oil, the next best thing is to use snake oil or lukewarm coconut oil. This will lead to reduction in hair fall over a period of time. It is quite prudent to start to use shampoos and conditioners that are constituted of natural ingredients. The usage of such natural remedies will prevent any side effects that might affect your hair adversely because of overuse. All these activities help you hair from the external perspective. To help your hair from within, increase your intake of the entire suite of vitamins B, E, and A as well as by switching to plant based oils as a cooking medium. Regular seafood or soy intake will also keep your protein intake balanced. You should also avoid polluted and dusty environments as well as harsh chemicals like permanent color and hair relaxers.
