Can you prevent hair loss?

ANSWER

Although you can't reverse natural balding, you can protect hair from damage that may eventually lead to thinning.

Many people put tremendous stress on their hair. Hair dryers, hot curlers, hair dyes, permanents and hair straightening products, and chemical-laden cosmetics may cause dry, brittle, and thinning hair.
