As per several studies and research, hair loss is one of the leading causes of stress in youth and adults. And vice versa, the stress of work and life is one of the primary reasons for excessive hair loss.

Some hair loss issues can be due to hormonal changes. Mental or physical situations like childbirth (in women) can lead to hair loss too. Other causes include dietary problems, vitamins and nutritional deficiencies, underlying diseases, side effects of medications, alopecia, scalp infections, etc. Experiencing little hair fall in daily life is normal. But if it increases and is persistent for some time, you need to see a doctor.

But what can you do to avoid losing hair? This blog will discuss methods that can help you out. Try these five prevention methods to control unnecessary loss of hair.

1. Vitamins are essential:
Your diet should include supplements and food rich in vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin C, vitamin B, iron, and zinc. These add nutritional values and increase the strength and retention capacity of your hair. They also help in the formation of hair cells and boost their growth.

2. Include protein:
