- Tweak your diet to prevent hair fall in the longer run
If you have been constantly concerned about hair fall, may be it is the hot weather that is to be blamed. According to the British Journal of Dermatology, summer and fall were associated with greater risk of hair loss. The new study explores the relationship between the seasonality and hair loss at a population level using Google Trends Data. Across all eight countries, researchers analysed in the study that summer and fall were associated with greater hair loss. The findings support previous studies that were constrained by small sample sizes or homogenous populations in limited geographic locations.
The researchers further revealed that the study synthesised digital epidemiological data from both hemispheres to confirm the clinical suspicion that the summer and fall seasons are associated with greater hair loss. This finding, as per the researchers is clinically relevant for patients presenting in summer and fall months with worsened hair loss and has various implications in assessing the effectiveness of therapies.
While you cannot stop the season from changing in order to avoid hair fall, but you can definitely tweak your diet that will help strengthen your tresses in the longer run. Here are some foods that can help prevent unwanted hair fall.
Spinach is an excellent source of iron, vitamin A and C and protein that are all essential for hair growth. It also contains sebum that acts as a natural conditioner for hair.
