After the comment about hair loss and the resulting slap incident that occurred during the Oscars, more people are aware of the significant increase in alarming Alopecia assaults. Having several family members and friends that have dealt with Alopecia has opened my eyes to the number of people who have had to deal with this bothersome and worrisome condition. After years of reading, researching, and reaching out to resources, some important and interesting information has come to my attention that is worth sharing to help people prevent and possibly reverse Alopecia.
Alopecia refers to various conditions and forms of hair loss. Many conditions, factors, and variables contribute to and may even trigger alopecia hair loss. It is helpful to learn more about hair follicles, growth, and protection strategies to ensure you enjoy healthy hair and scalp.
The Morningstar NEWS blog is passionate about helping people to identify healthy habits that help and avoid health hazards that harm. Today we will share a decades-long obsession of mine regarding hair and scalp health. If you are committed to having and protecting your healthy hair and scalp this blog will share some simple suggestions and smart strategies to help.
Alarming Alopecia Assaults
Saying alarming Alopecia assaults may seem a bit over-dramatic, but many people feel Alopecia is an assault on their happiness, health, and hair. There are many factors believed to play a role in Alopecia. Alcohol and drugs can harm your hair and health. Excess chemical conditioning and shampooing with chemical health hazard products are likely major contributors to hair and scalp issues. Shampooing once a week with a very gentle product may be enough to keep the scalp clean and healthy. Excess stress is a prime suspect and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) can help. Improper brushing and combing are believed to be contributing factors. Immune system issues and inflammation may also play major roles in Alopecia.
Over-the-Counter (OTC) and prescription drugs often have side effects and cause hair and scalp problems. Poor sleep habits are a major factor for many people and may increase your risk. The quality and quantity of sleep are vital to our health. Scientific research shows that electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) and electromagnetic radiation (EMR) exposure impacts our heads and health. Some research indicates that pillows and pillowcases may have a negative or positive influence on hair and head health. Unhealthy beverages, foods, and supplements can lead to hair and scalp issues. Using body care and hair care products that are known to contain chemical health hazards is definitely advised against.
Habits for Healthy Hair
There are many habits associated with our lifestyle, nutrition, and wellness that may harm our hair and scalp or may help with healthy hair. Here are many of the top things to think about to help with having healthy hair and scalp.
- Hair follicles and hair roots require good nutrition to grow healthy hair. What can you do to reduce your junk food intake and upgrade your nutrition?
- Hormones play a major role in our health and significantly impact the health of our hair, scalp, and skin. Hormone imbalances must be addressed to restore health.
- Immune system issues can affect many areas of the body including our hair. Alopecia areata can be an important signal to heal your immune system.
- Inflammation is a red flag warning of damage, danger, and disease. Be sure to find a qualified health care provider who can help you discover the root cause and fix it.
- Inversion therapy helps rejuvenate our scalp (bend over or lower the head below the body and heart).
- Jojoba oil can help maintain healthy hair and scalp.
- Kelp and seaweeds can be used to help cleanse and detox as well as provide beneficial minerals and nutrients.
- Lack of connection, love, and support can contribute to hair loss.
- Massaging the scalp is very beneficial. Meditation and mindfulness can also help support our emotional health as well as our hair and scalp health.
- Molds, candida, and fungus are major contributing factors to many health issues and may contribute to Alopecia issues.

- Plant proteins, polyphenols, and probiotics can be beneficial for restoring our hair and health.
- Plastic chemicals and compounds can harm our health and most harm our hair and scalp.
- Prebiotics and probiotics are vital for our digestion, gut health, and immune function. It is often called the Gut-Brain connection and significantly influences our health.

- Razor grass, resveratrol, and rosemary are beneficial botanical supplements. Other suggested supplements include ashwagandha, horsetail, oregano, and saw palmetto.
- Replace all chemical health hazard products in your home with eco-friendly natural products.
- Shampooing too often is a major issue for many people. The scalp is being exposed to harsh chemicals and the hair follicles can become damaged and depleted.
- Sleep is vital to our recuperation, rejuvenation, and restoration process. Sleep strategies are often some of the most important and least implemented health protocols.
- Sunshine is a key factor in our happiness, health, and holistic well-being. Most people are getting less than optimal sun exposure and are suffering the consequences.

- Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K are essential for our hair and health. Organic whole foods are the best sources of natural vitamins. FYI, many cheap vitamins are cheap synthetic versions and contain fillers and may actually be detrimental to your health so choose wisely to invest in your health and longevity.
- Water quality and quantity are very important when it comes to your hair and health. Be sure to use a quality water filter.
- X out most refined sugars (especially artificial sweeteners and HFCS).
