How can I minimise hair loss?

Senior man looking at his hair in mirrorAfter spending a good few years in the hair industry, we have come to realise that the best solution to avoid hair loss is to relax about life, eat a variety of healthy food, do not interfere with your hair except for washing every 2nd-3rd day, stay away from medications and drugs.

If that is not enough and your genes have dictated your hair loss, please follow one golden rule: DO NOT SELF-MEDICATE! DO NOT SHAVE YOUR HEAD TO HIDE YOUR THINNING!

Book an examination and consultation at Millennium Clinic as soon as possible, to find out what the source of your problem is and how it can be resolved. It’s the same logic as with any other health problem; the earlier you catch it the better your chances of getting a positive result! With the aid of the latest in scientific research, treating hair and scalp problems is no longer a hit or miss affair.

So how do you know what the cause of your problem is and what the right treatment should be?

After observing a multitude of clients over the years, I found that problems can be as varied as the people who have them. A one-size-fits all solution or an over the counter miracle cure is simply not good enough in today’s day and age.


Thinning hair is a symptom of a number of possible causes:

  1. Nutrition;
  2. Stress;
  3. Underlying medical conditions;
  4. Mechanical damage (over treatment);
  5. Auto immune disorders (alopecia);
  6. Hormonal levels and associated disorders…
  7. Genetic predisposition and its variations…

Here are some tips and guidelines on what you can do to minimise hair loss and lead a healthy lifestyle:


Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fatty fish such as salmon and mackerel, flaxseed oil, macadamia nuts and walnuts. It’s recommended that women in particular, try to eat a food source of omega-3 fatty acids three times a week to maintain skin and hair health.

Zinc deficiencies, which are associated with hair health, may also be a problem among people on low-calorie diets, especially young women. Zinc is found in meat, eggs and seafood. When all of these foods are removed from the diet, zinc needs to be replaced in the body by other sources.

A healthy diet also includes eight to 10 glasses of water and juices a day for maximum hydration. Water not only hydrates your body, but also aids in keeping your hair silky and shiny.

Millennium Clinic can conduct detailed and accurate tests, to establish if your nutrition could be contributing to your hair loss. Our consultants will go through the results with you and show you how to get back on the right track.

Stress: Physical, Emotional…

Hair loss could stem from the stress of a careless lifestyle. Do you eat healthy foods, get enough exercise and sleep your 8 hours a night? Are you over or under weight? Do you drink alcohol excessively or addicted to prescription or illegal drugs? Is your life balanced or are you pushing yourself beyond reason? Everything you do affects your body and mind in a positive or negative way. The good news is, if you’re abusing yourself and are out of balance, you can change it. Naturally, the sooner you eliminate stress, the sooner your hair starts growing back.

People who do notice an excessive amount of hair falling out, hair in large clumps on their hairbrush or pillow or in the shower drain, should consult with Millennium Clinicas soon as you can. There may be a simple and effective solution that will eliminate your hair loss or thinning.
