The New Year is the ideal time to set goals for your health and well-being. For example, if you have hair loss and are looking for ways to improve your appearance or lifestyle, setting a resolution is a positive way to make a difference. By keeping things simple and focusing on a few areas, you can make changes to your health.
1. New Year, New Hairpiece, or Head Covering
In the New Year, look at ways to change the appearance of your head, especially if you have hair loss and haven’t changed things for a while. Experiment with a new hat or hairpiece — go for it if you haven’t used them before to see what difference it makes. Some wigs with natural hair look realistic and can also be styled to suit your preferences. There are plenty of head and hair options if you want a quick confidence boost. And don’t forget that January often presents some great sales in the stores, so you could get lucky and find a bargain.
2. Improve Your Diet
One easy way to make a fresh start in the New Year is to take a long hard look at the food you eat. Hair conditions, especially thinning, can be improved simply by changing dietary habits. Add more protein to your meal plans, such as fish, chicken, and egg. Iron is another essential mineral for hair health. Leafy green vegetables such as spinach are iron-rich, as are chicken and red meat. Nuts, avocados, and vegetables are all mineral and vitamin-rich foods that will improve the condition of your hair.
3. Stop Smoking
Are you a smoker? Smoking has many health risks, but did you know it can also affect hair loss? Smokers, especially men, will experience thinning hair or baldness as smoking restricts blood circulation, including to the scalp. Reduced blood flow affects hair growth. When you smoke, your body produces free radicals, which can damage DNA and lead to hair loss. Finally, smoking costs money, so giving up the habit will help you save for something you need.
4. Do Something Positive Each Day
Hair loss is emotionally upsetting, so it’s essential to stay positive. You can get yourself into a good place by doing a positive thing daily. For example, go for a short walk, use a positive affirmation when you wake up, or help someone do something. By staying positive, your emotional health will improve, which will help you manage your hair loss.
