There are many things you can do to slow or stop hair loss. But what to do depends on the reason why you’re losing your hair.Some situations, like hair loss after pregnancy (telogen effluvium), may resolve on their own. And remember that everyone sheds hair daily, which is perfectly normal.It’s when hair loss is persistent that you want to see your doctor. Your healthcare provider may be able to diagnose,
if your hair loss is caused by things like thyroid issues, stress, scalp infections, androgenic alopecia, or simply aging.A 2018 study revealed that a diet containing raw vegetables and fresh herbs,
like the Mediterranean diet, may reduce the risk of androgenic alopecia (female pattern baldness or male pattern baldness) or slow its onset.Best results were observed when participants,
consumed high amounts of these foods — such as parsley, basil, salad greens — more than three days a week. Hair follicles are made mostly of protein called keratin. One 2017 study.
