    Care for your hair. One of the basic steps you need to take in the process of saving your luscious locks is, taking care of your hair. You can prevent hair fall to a great extent, if you pamper your hair and avoid damaging it, unless you have genetics factors, which cause hair loss.

    Give protein to your hair. You hair is made up of protein. So, it is important to add an adequate amount of protein to your diet. Include protein rich food to your plate like meat, diary or protein shakes. The reason for hair loss is protein deficiency, so never let your hair starve due to lack of this important nutrient in your diet.

    Avoid junk food. If you don't want to see your hair from shredding, then say 'no' to junk food. Include a healthy protein rich diet. Junk food is nothing other than 'free calories'. It does no good to your food, so stay as far as possible.

    Never over wash your hair. Yes, your hair needs washing, in order to get rid of the dirt and pollution, but the thumb rule is; never over do it. Excess washing of hair will not only strip the dirt but also take away the natural oils and damage the hair.

    Avoid excessive heating. In this fashionable world, all of us like to style our hair to look our best, but do remember that excessive or constant heating and drying, can weaken the hairs protein and make it more brittle and fragile, leading to hair loss. Thus, minimise the usage of hair dryers, curlers and hair straighteners.

    Vitamin C is important. If you want healthy and strong hair, then add sufficient amount of vitamin C to your diet. Vitamin C is needed for hair, to maintain its strength and lustre. Include vitamin C rich foods like oranges, lemons and green peppers. Make sure to get approximately 1,000 to 3,000 mg of vitamin C in your diet on a daily basis.

    Keep yourself hydrated. If you want healthy hair, then drink sufficient water, as one quarter of your hair shaft comprises of water. Sufficient water not only helps grow your hair but also keeps it hydrated.

    Avoid combing wet hair. Avoid combing your wet tresses, as this can lead to greater chances of hair breakage and fall. Comb you hair, when it is dry or semi-dry.

    Massage your hair. Try to get a nice hot oil massage at least once a week. Rub the oil in your scalp and every part of your hair and leave it overnight, so that the oil can help restore the moisture of your locks and replenish the hair roots and provide sufficient nourishment. You can use any type of oil, depending on your choice.

    Avoid smoking. Smoking even one cigarette a day can reduce the blood flow to the scalp, which can cause reduction in hair growth. Stop smoking to avoid hair fall. daily times monitor.
