Genetics, disease, and medication can cause hair loss. Most people don’t consider the environment’s impact on hair loss. Uncontrollable environmental factors can lead to hair thinning.
Hair loss has increased in urban populations recently. At first, scientists blamed treatments; now, they point to pollution. Dangerous particles and gases released into the air cause pollution. Toxins reflected onto Earth’s surface from the atmosphere hinder hair growth protein. Men in cities like Dallas face disrupted hair growth due to pollution.
Moving to rural areas can combat hair loss, but it’s often unrealistic. That is why we suggest a few simple modifications to your daily routine to prevent hair loss:
- Wash your hair often – If you are regularly subjected to polluted air, something as simple as washing your hair semi-regularly could be widely beneficial. Taking at least four showers a week and using shampoo and conditioner will wash the toxins from your hair and will keep your hair follicles healthy.
- Use antioxidants – Antioxidants like vitamins A and E, beta-carotene, and green tea help free neutralize radicals that may have settled into your scalp. This helps stimulate hair oxidations in addition to aiding hair growth.
- Keep hair covered – Less exposure to sunlight and air pollution can help counteract hair loss caused by air pollution.
