What you can do about hair loss

It’s prob­a­bly a night­mare for every­one to wake up one day and real­ize that you’re real­ly los­ing hair. You are not the only one with this prob­lem, we get a lot of ques­tions every day. Often there is no real cause for con­cern, but that is not always the case. Sometimes it’s time to find out what’s going on in the body that caus­es hair loss. When do you real­ly lose hair and what can you do about hair loss?

When do you really suffer from hair loss?

You can lose 60 to 150 hairs a day with­out any­thing hap­pen­ing. Keep in mind that hair loss can some­times seem worse than it is. If you have long hair, 100 hairs can look like 300. And with a short hair­cut, you some­times only real­ize that you real­ly lose a lot more hair if you’ve been doing this for a lit­tle longer.

What causes hair loss?

If you lose more hair than nor­mal, there are a num­ber of fac­tors that can cause this. Since the hair is a non-essen­tial tis­sue, it is hyper­sen­si­tive to stress. Stress can even make you bald… But nor­mal life events such as a stom­ach virus, high fever, crash diets and a stress­ful job can also be the cause of hair loss (even six to ten weeks lat­er). Sometimes, by the way, it’s just a cycle that women have to deal with. For exam­ple, some women lose more hair in win­ter or spring. Even in these cas­es, there is no rea­son to pan­ic. If you take good care of your­self (your body), you will notice that your hair loss decreas­es and the hair regrows as usu­al.

It is also impor­tant to know that it is not very con­ducive to vis­it­ing the hair­dress­er very often. If you often go to the hair­dress­er for treat­ments (such as bleach­ing, per­ma­nent hair dye­ing, hair dry­ers), the effect can be sim­i­lar to hair loss. The treat­ments do not affect your nat­ur­al hair growth, but they dam­age the hair (the pro­tein struc­ture). This weak­ens the hair shaft and can lead to hair break­age, which in turn is very sim­i­lar to hair loss. And yes, this can also make your hair look thin­ner after a while. So be care­ful

One of the rea­sons why many women have long, healthy hair is that they hard­ly go to the hair­dress­er and nev­er brush their hair when it’s wet.

What can you do about hair loss?

How we look from the out­side tells us a lot about how we feel inside. If you lose more hair than nor­mal (more than two months), it’s time to act.

Although each per­son is dif­fer­ent, the most com­mon caus­es of hair loss are iron defi­cien­cy, vit­a­min D, vit­a­min B12 and/or a thy­roid prob­lem. It is impor­tant to have your blood exam­ined before tak­ing sup­ple­ments. It is not a good idea to have too much vit­a­min D or iron in the body, for exam­ple. A blood test can help you get your full, healthy hair bun­dle back.

What are the other most common reasons for hair loss?

Iron deficiency

Iron defi­cien­cy can lead to hair break­age, which leads to thin­ning hair and stress (because you think you lose hair). In this arti­cle, I explained what good veg­etable iron sources are. My favorite scoare is lentils. A few table­spoons a day don’t bring much, make sure they are well rep­re­sent­ed on your plate (prefer­ably twice a day).


A thy­roid gland that does not func­tion opti­mal­ly can lead to hair loss. So have your T3 (tri­jodothy­rox­ine) lev­els checked and con­tact an expert to sup­port your thy­roid gland.


Hair is made up of more than 90 per­cent pro­tein. So if you don’t eat enough pro­tein, it can make your hair grow less fast or even fail. So add addi­tion­al pro­tein. You need these amino acids to form strong hair cells. Good sources of veg­etable pro­tein are lentils, hemp seeds, chia seeds, quinoa, spir­uli­na, beans, nuts and seeds.


Your hair needs min­er­als to grow. Zinc (togeth­er with cop­per) and sil­i­ca are very suit­able for hair growth. Here you can read more about nutri­tion for healthy hair.

Good fats

Fats are essen­tial for hair growth. Good fats nour­ish the hair cells and make your hair shine. My favorites are nuts and avo­ca­dos.

Good Fat — Bad Fat


If your diges­tion does­n’t work prop­er­ly, you can’t absorb all the vit­a­mins and min­er­als for new healthy hair and hair growth. Poor diges­tion means that you make it dif­fi­cult for your body (and your hair) due to a lack of vit­a­mins and min­er­als that can­not be absorbed from food. Eat plen­ty of fiber (from fruits and veg­eta­bles), drink enough water, keep your gut clean and move suf­fi­cient­ly.


Dealing with a lot of stress (too much and too often) can lead to a whole range of health prob­lems. Stress is often the cause of hair loss. Try to find some­thing that can relieve stress dur­ing dai­ly activ­i­ties such as med­i­ta­tion, prayer, sports, cook­ing, read­ing or a walk in nature.
