Lately, I am surrounded by people who keep asking me if their hair length is growing or, in this case, instead, what is happening to them is that they lose hair. And why is this?
The main causes vary depending on the person. It can be heredity, hormonal causes, radiation therapy, stress, hairstyles and treatment, and Covid. Yes, you read correctly, by Covid.
It turns out that alopecia is also one of the sequelae that this virus leaves in patients who suffer from it. “After the body has undergone wear and tear, excessive hair loss occurs, which luckily stops,” says Almudena Nuño, a dermatologist at the University Hospital of La Paz. The time it takes the patient to recover is between three and six months.
What can we do to stop hair loss?
You should immediately go to your dermatologist and give you good advice on what you can do. As an alternative, consider vitamin D since many studies link the lack of vitamin to losing its immunomodulatory effect. The lack of vitamins is a risk factor in the development of hair loss. Vitamin D is found in fatty fish, such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel. Also, in beef liver, cheese, and egg yolk, although these contain lesser amounts. Mushrooms provide a certain amount of vitamin D. You can also buy it in pill form at the pharmacy and even on Amazon.
You can also make yourself a mask of aloe vera, coconut oil, and virgin olive oil. This mask works well to accelerate hair growth. Aloe Vera is used to recreating dead skin cells in the scalp. It also works as a conditioner and leaves hair soft and shiny. Coconut oil treats dry scalp. Virgin olive oil, in addition to giving hair a healthy and strong appearance, prevents hair loss. The recommended thing about this mask is to do it at least once a week. I advise you to leave it on overnight, but if you are an impatient person, just leave it on for 30 minutes so that your scalp can absorb all the nutrients in the mask.
These tips have helped prevent hair loss and strengthen it to the point of having a comb.
