7 WAYS TO PREVENT HAIR LOSS

Anthony says…..DONT YANK ON YOUR ROOTS as seen on bustle.com

Men may not be able to control their receding hairlines, erectile but you can do something about the increasing amount of hair you notice is clogging your shower drain. While some female hair loss is normal (according to experts, 50-100 strands a day is standard), you want to do everything you can to minimize loss and maximize your count of thick, healthy, shiny hair. Here are the seven cardinal dos and donts when it comes to preserving your hair:

DON’T

Use an elastic that is too small or tight on your ponytail, says Tina Dizon, lead stylist and founder of L.A. salon The Private Room. She also recommends staying far away from anything that resembles a rubber band. “The grip is too harsh on strands and will cause breakage.”

DO

Run a soft bristle brush through your hair before you step into the shower to shampoo. “It’s important to detangle and smooth the strands for fewer tangles, so you aren’t pulling hair out every time you cleanse,” says Dizon.

DON’T

We’re all guilty of it, but really try not to yank on your roots when brushing. “You’ll only end up with a bundle of knots on the ends which result in breakage over time,” says hairstylist Anthony Nader, who’s tended to the hair of Miranda Kerr, Gisele Bundchen and Cate Blanchett.  “Always comb your hair with a wide tooth comb when wet, as fine tooth combs and brushes weaken strands by stretching them out so they snap off.”
