Five things you could be doing to stop your hair fall and hair loss:

  1. Do not rub your hair dry. Patting hair dry tends to prevent stretching and irritation of the scalp while maintaining healthy hair follicles. Use a microfibre hair towel like this one
  2. If you use a hair dryer ensure you use a good conditioner to protect your scalp from drying out. And use a 10 minute mask as often as you can to add moisture to your hair.
  3. Add styling products to partially dry hair. If you can get your hair to a little more than 50% dry before you add in any styling products, they tend to adhere to the hair shaft more densely and reliably as they are not watered down
  4. Do not brush wet hair. Use a broad tooth comb and comb wet hair into place. 
  5. Check your nutrition. Ensure you eat enough protein and if necessary have a blood test to check on your iron levels. A body low in iron will opt to put what little iron it does have into life sustaining functions rather than growing hair
