To prevent hair loss, women can start by eating a good, well-balanced diet with plenty of protein. If a woman is not getting enough protein, the body has to select what it’s going to make, and hair is usually the first thing the body eliminates. You’ll also want to avoid hairstyles that pull tightly at your hair, and frequent use of hot rollers and curling irons. If you’re using elastic bands for ponytails or braids, make sure the bands are coated with fabric so they don’t pull at your hair. And invest in a sturdy wide-tooth comb to help ease daily wear-and-tear on your hair.
