As we get in our prime time, our hair needs more tender loving care. Hair grows in cycles: It grows, rests, sheds, and hopefully is replaced by new hair.
But when hair follicles rest more than they are replaced, hair loss becomes apparent. This leads to thinner-looking hair or baldness.
With this concern in mind, we sat down with leader in natural and organic hair care, Robyn Atticks, Founder and CEO of Shear Miracle Organics (SMO). The company launched the Tuff’N Up shampoo ($24.99) that claims to prevent hair loss.
Robyn shared that as we age our scalp needs to be stimulated. She suggests shampoos that have peppermint and coconut oil and cinnamon in them. Atticks also recommends to wash hair every other day and that two shampoos work better. “Combine with a good conditioner to get a dual action. It is important to balance the proper PH and maintain a beautiful color,” she states.
For the best natural ways to prevent hair loss:
1. For healthy hair try to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
2. Eat real foods such as fresh organic fruits and vegetables. Look for organic & local produce to support your farmers.
To stimulate blood flow to the scalp add 2 or 3 drops of mint essential oil.
