My mother is having hairloss and she has tried many treatments for it but with no results. Can you give me some tips for hairloss please?
Thanks for your question. There are several key things you can do to help promote hair growth. Here are a few tips:
1. Increase circulation in the scalp
By increasing blood circulation in the scalp you increase the supply of nutrients to the hair, which helps feed the hair.
Tip: Give your mum a nice scalp massage every day for a few minutes. This will help increase blood flow at the surface of the scalp.
2. Reduce ‘DHT’ in the scalp
DHT (the hormone that causes hairloss) is the most significant cause of hair loss. It’s far more prevalent in men, but women’s DHT levels can increase, particularly during menopause. If you really want to tackle DHT I would suggest downloading my eBook and following the instructions. However the following tip may also be of help…
Tip: Try using an anti-DHT shampoo every morning. Massage the shampoo into the scalp well each morning, leave on for a minute and rinse well.

3. Eat foods that promote hair growth
Iron deficiency can cause hair loss. It’s worth getting a blood test from your doctor to see if your mum has an iron deficiency. This can then be treated and may stop the hair loss.
Tip: Eat green leafy vegetables such as baby leaf spinach, watercress and rocket daily as these are rich in iron. Also eat a portion of oily fish such as mackerel or salmon once a week for the omega-3. For a complete list of foods that promote hair growth and a detailed guide on nutrition that supports hair growth, download my eBook.
This may seem like the obvious “yes you should exercise because it’s good for your health”, but it is really important. Exercise helps reduce stress, which is also a major cause of hair loss. It also helps improve circulation, which again is good for your hair.
Tip: If your mum is able to, I highly recommend getting at least 20 minutes sustained gentle exercise every day, such as walking and some more intense exercise such as swimming or cycling, three times a week.
5. Supplement your diet
I don’t usually recommend supplements because the superfoods I list in my eBook are far better than any supplement available on the market, but in some cases it can be easier and more convenient to use a hair loss supplement like Nourkrin. Also, I think this can help psychologically because it can help you feel as if you are doing something every day to stop the hair loss.
Tip: Take a look at my recommended hair loss treatments page to see what I recommend for women and men.
