If you have any type of illness of disease, taking care of your physical health is vitally important. You may damage your body permanently if you don’t take the steps recommended by your doctor. If your body’s energy is going toward improving your health, there won’t be enough to help the hair follicles grow. These conditions will lead to you losing your hair.
Make sure to brush or comb every day. This is of course normal to do in regards to being well groomed, however, by brushing every day you will stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles. With the increased blood flow you can expect cells in your scalp to be more active and thereby increase hair growth.

Massage vigorously when conditioning to stimulate blood flow which will prompt the hair to be more responsive to conditioning.

You can reduce the rate at which you’re losing your hair by eating a lot of protein-rich foods. Many foods such as eggs, beans, fish, poultry and nuts supply much needed protein to your body. Your hair will take the protein it needs from this in the form of keratin. With an ample supply of keratin coming in, your hair will be stronger and more slow and resilient the loss effectively.
Brushing your hair while it is very wet is not a good idea. Wet hair is susceptible to damage. If you wait patiently for hair to dry, you will find your hair is much easier to brush out. You can pull out, split or fray your hair when you brush it wet.
