Who would have thought that even successful millionaire celebrities suffer from hair loss? Hair loss is something that affects over 4 million Americans, and some of those Americans also happen to be world famous celebs with millions of adoring fans; including Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Victoria Beckham, Kirsten Stewart, Britney Spears, Andre Agassi, Bruce Willis, Brendan Fraser, John Travolta, Jude Law, Nicolas Cage, Kiefer Sutherland, and Prince William. Below, you will find some tips that celebrities use to deal with and/or treat their hair loss issues.
Spoil Yourself! Have Fun, Relax
One tip is to spoil yourself from time to time. Sure, one would imagine that celebrities treat themselves quite a bit but it can be hard to truly have fun when your life is chaotic and hectic all the time. Celebrities are often travelling around the world, working 20+ hour days, on film shoots. The stress that working all the time can have on the body can be devastating. For instance, studies have shown that men produce more male hormones that trigger hair loss when they are under stress. Hence, taking some time to rest and relax, on a routine basis, can help reduce stress and anxiety and also help slow down the hair loss process.
Strawberries and Nuts?
You may also wish to treat yourself to some strawberry chocolate fondue. Ok, so chocolates have not been linked to hair growth but strawberries have. Not only can eating a strawberry chocolate fondue help reduce stress but it may help reduce your risk of hair loss as well as cancer, thanks to the powerful free radical destroying antioxidants found in both chocolates and strawberries.
Also, have you noticed that a lot of celebrities have been promoting the benefits of nuts? Well, this is because nuts, especially walnuts can help nourish the scalp and promote hair growth. This is because walnuts are currently the only nuts known to scientists to contain Vitamin E, B Vitamins, magnesium, protein, and Biotin.
A Balding Makeover
Many celebrities who suffer from significant hair loss also find ways to “style” their baldness to make it seem like they are not balding naturally but are instead making a fashion statement. Also, you don’t need to necessarily go to a hair stylist to help cover up bald spots or enjoy a classy makeover. Instead, use a hair razor to trim your hair into a new hairdo that suits your skin and body type.
Avoid Break Dancing. Try Eggs & Olive Oil Instead!
Although this may seem silly to some, you should avoid break dancing at all costs if you suffer from hair loss, as break dancing can cause significant trauma to hair that may lead to severe hair loss. On a more serious note, eating eggs may help promote healthy hair growth, as eggs are rich in proteins that contain sulphur. Sulphur is a rich mineral that is found in all of the cells in the human body, and is found in abundance in our skin, nails, and hair.
Furthermore, many female celebs also enjoy using olive oil to nourish and revitalize their hair. Simply pour the desired amount onto your hair and then massage gingerly. Next, place a shower cap over your head to allow the olive oil to “marinate” on your scalp for about an hour. Then, simply rinse off and enjoy the rest of your day with lustrous, luxurious hair that rivals the best in Tinsel Town!
Only Use Water-Based Styling Products
Moreover, most celebs who style their hair ensure to use water-based styling products only. This is because styling waxes that contain petroleum or paraffin can actually block hair follicles, causing them to stop growing altogether. In addition, make sure that you read the labels on the styling products you are thinking of purchasing to make sure they are water-based and you won’t have to worry about losing your hair while looking your best.
Also, please avoid smoking at all costs. Not only has smoking been linked to lung and heart disease, various forms of cancer, bad breath, impotence, and stained teeth, but it has also been linked to hair loss. Many celebs use props and electronic cigarettes in movies to make it look like they are smoking actual cigarettes but they are not, so why not do the same and puff an electronic cigarette the next time you have a craving for a real one? Trust us: Your lungs and hair follicles will thank you.
Hair Transplantation To The Rescue
Finally, if all else fails why not consult your doctor or a dermatologist about a hair transplant? While not everyone is suitable for a hair transplant there is no denying that many celebs have gone under the knife to obtain hair transplants, including famous soccer player Wayne Rooney. Just remember that while spending a few thousand dollars on a hair restoration procedure is pocket change to most celebs it isn’t the same for your Average Joe and Jane, so consult your medical health care provider to ensure that hair transplantation is right for you.
