    You have collected a very good list of what to do-s to prevent hair loss 🙂 My question would be, that you wrote taking vitamins is very important to prevent hair loss (among many other things). Can you recommend or make a list how much vitamin you think would be good for a day? Also, if you have any experience with brands, I would be very grateful to get some tips, as there are so many different brands, that I am not sure which one is good, or which one would not work. Thanks very much 🙂

      Food is the best source of the vitamins you need for hair growth. However, if you fail to get enough in your diet, It might be harmful..

      large doses of vitamins and minerals can be harmful if you aren’t
      deficient. So work with a doctor to determine if you have a deficiency
      or not.

      At the end of the day, the best way to get these
      nutrients is by eating a balanced, real food-based diet that includes
      plenty of nutrient-dense foods.

    Having looked in the mirror recently to realise that I had a hair thinning problem was a bit scary, I don’t want to go bald, no-one does.

    I do have hypertension, am overweight and am not fit enough mainly due to arthritis slowing me down in the last few years.

    The Hair Loss Black Book is something I will need to read, but like others I will wait a while to see if my hair thinning goes too much further. I know that I am taking a risk, but we all do these things (take risks) but I am glad for this very useful information.

      thanks very much for commenting!

  3. Hello there. Great post relating Inflammation and Hair Loss. Yes inflammation causes hair loss as you have said. It all bores down to dieting. Foods containing of sugar such as rice, cassava, bread, snacks and carbohydrate generally are great source of sugar in the body which in turn produces insulin and this could lead to inflammation which in turn causes hair loss.

    There are so many other as you have highlighted in this post.

      Hi Berry,

      I really Appreciate your comment. thanks for throwing more light on it.

      you really done a research on the subject , inflammation is a big cause of hair loss in men. Indeed, inflammation has a role to play in many undesirable conditions not only hair Loss including acne, asthma and arthritis, to name just a few. YES

      Thanks Very much.

  4. Thanks a lot for the helpful and informative post.

    To be honest Hair loss is a major problem many are facing and I have read there are lot of searches on Google related to Hair loss and Weight loss compared to other things.

    Personally I do have this problem, since I worked in night shift for 6 years with a lot of pressure because its a sales industry. I also skipped my breakfast since I was going to my bed early mornings. These all caused a huge damage to my hair.

    You not only discussed the problem but you have provided the solution.

    I just shared your post with my wife to show her your recommended foods I need to intake and I hope she will help me with that Lol.

    Wishing you great success!

      Thanks Very Much Paul.

      Good idea. Female pattern hair loss (FPHL) is a distinctive form of hair loss that occurs in women with androgenetic alopecia. So it really nice to share it with her!.

      Thanks once again

  5. I never linked the hair loss with inflammation, never thought that there is a link between these two. Sugar, stress, the oils mentioned by you are indeed harmful to the body.

    I eat fruits and vegetables, exercise regularly, and I cut the sugar and salt. I noticed how my health improved. For the scalp, I use argan oil which makes my hair look shiny and healthy.

    In our modern world, the stress is the first enemy to fight with. It’s a challenging battle which we have to take daily.

    Thank you for an informative article.

      Thanks very much Dany, For your contribution!

      Hair loss can be caused by a wide range of conditions, beginning with inflammatory skin diseases and inflammation in the hair follicles. The exact causes of auto-immune inflammation are not well known; also, it is not known why in most cases only certain areas of the scalp (patches) are affected.

      Thanks once again

    Hi, I ran into your post and you just brought something up to my attention.

    You see, I’ve always had a problem thinking about losing hair and I’m currently 21 years old. I wan’t to know at what age does a person becomes bald? And if my dad is bald, does that mean that I’ll be bald too?

    I would really love your response.

    1. admin says:

      Not Really.

      Male hair loss starts at some point in the twenties, but it typically takes 1525 years to go bald. Half of fifty year olds are quite bald. However, some men go bald in less than five years.

      If you have male pattern baldness, you are losing your hair because your body is becoming increasingly sensitive to male sex hormones called androgens. The extent to which your scalp is affected by this process is hereditary.

      You can also lose your hair because of illness or surgical procedures, stressful circumstances, changes in hormone levels and scalp infections. But in many cases hair loss is not permanent.

  7. Gracen says:

    This is interesting, I mean am just hearing for the first time that sugar is the major cause of inflammation. Losing hair can cause quite a feeling of helplessness. Not only does one feel depressed about his/her hair loss, it also makes the person feel inadequate.

    I remember losing some hair after the birth of my first baby, it was quite a trial time for me until I started my hair loss treatment.  I never attributed it to any form of inflammation. Your article is an eye opener, especially the fact that women that experience lots of emotional stress often end up with inflammation.

    I quite agree with you that nutrition plays a vital role in the growth of our hair, poor nutrition will affect the hair negatively which can lead to hair loss.

    The treatment tips you gave for taking care of the hair are great. Keep up the good work.

    1. admin says:

      Thanks very much for your comments,

      It’s no myth that excess stress and sugar can literally make your hair fall out. just be careful on what you do, eat good food and you will be a testifier..

      thanks once more.

    Great post! I never knew there was a correlation between hair loss and inflammation. It really makes you think about what kind of food you take into your body and the effects it has. This post definitely motivated me to try to be more aware of what I’m eating so I can prevent this from happening to me.



    1. admin says:

      Yes, there is a correlation between the two.
      Folliculitis is an inflammation of the hair follicles.

      And your food intake determines your Healthy status. take more on the following:

      Eggs. Eggs are a great source of protein and biotin, two nutrients that may promote hair growth. … Berries. Berries are loaded with beneficial compounds and vitamins that may promote hair growth. … Spinach. … Fatty Fish. … Sweet Potatoes. … Avocados. … Nuts. … Seeds.

    This a very informative article and I kinda wish I came across this article a little earlier, regardless it’s a great piece. I had to battle hairloss as a point in my life and I can tell you it can cause depression. I had to try all sorts before I could finally overcome it. Glad I came across this, at least now I know better. Thanks for this info.

    1. admin says:

      Thanks goodness for the Battle won. Hair Loss causes depression.
      our hair is incredibly important to us psychologically, physiologically it is non-essential; we could survive without it with no detriment to our physical health. This means that any nutritional deficiency often
      first shows up in our hair.” Yet another reason to avoid crash dieting and instead try to adopt a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
