Everything about showering and hair loss

Cleanse your skin and immediately combat stress or cellulite and increase your resistance. It can be done in your own shower. If you lose hair, you can find the causes and remedies here.

What temperature and how long to shower

How warm?

How long?

Do not shower too hot: this can dry out the skin. But shower products do not dissolve very well in cold water. Water at body temperature is ideal.

Shower for 10 to 15 minutes, not longer, because showering for too long dries out the skin. Moreover, it is a lot more environmentally friendly.


Away stress, away tension

Stress knots in the neck and shoulders?

Then you can do something about this while showering. Bend the head slightly forward. Close your eyes and feel the water running over your neck and shoulders. With a few drops of relaxing essential oil, stress literally flows away. Afterwards you can further loosen the shoulders by rotating them in small circles (not large circles, as when exercising). To do this, first bring them forward a little, then up a little, then back a little and then let them fall down. The shower is also an excellent place to give yourself a scalp massage. Spread the fingers and place them on the scalp. Turn small circles with some pressure. Make sure that the scalp moves along and that you do not simply slide over the hair. Move the fingers and work the entire scalp.

More resistance, less cellulite

You’ve probably heard it: the healthiest shower is actually an alternating shower where you alternate hot and cold water. Start with a shower at body temperature, alternating with water at 20°C for 5 seconds every now and then. The water does not have to be ice cold. A shower stimulates blood circulation and firms the skin. Your skin is shocked by the cold water and tries to warm up as quickly as possible. This causes the upper blood vessels to contract and this has a beneficial effect on the skin in the long term. It helps against cellulite and varicose veins, among other things. In addition, you increase your resistance with regular showers. Due to the varying temperatures, the body gets used to temperature differences.

I’m losing her, what can I do?

What are the causes

  • A deficiency of female hormones and too much testosterone during menopause.
  • After an illness with a high fever or after a major surgical procedure. This accelerates the failure phase.
  • After childbirth, due to the rapidly decreasing estrogen level, the hair comes to rest more quickly.
  • Medicines such as beta blockers or antidepressants that bring the hair follicles into the resting phase more quickly.
  • Chemotherapy that disrupts the growth phase of your hair.
  • An underactive or overactive thyroid gland that causes diffuse or widespread hair loss.
  • Alopecia Areata, an autoimmune disease in which the body attacks its own hair follicles.
  • Stress because more testosterone is released.
  • Too tight ponytails, extensions and hair pins that pull out your hair or damage the hair follicles. Excessive coloring and the use of hairdryers and straighteners and curling irons also damage your hair.


What can you do about it?

First discuss your specific hair problems with a specialized dermatologist to see which approach can work for you. There is Minoxidil, a drug that was originally developed against high blood pressure, but which also stimulates hair growth. You can get it in a low dose in pharmacies without a prescription. Apply the lotion every day to balding but still hairy areas. In addition, the Diane pill reduces the effect of male testosterone, allowing your hair to grow better. If no new hairs grow, you can consider a hair transplant. In any case, as a preventative measure, it is a good idea to avoid stress, eat a varied diet, let your hair breathe, possibly switch to another pill if you are currently taking one with male hormones and opt for a good quality shampoo with ingredients such as iron, zinc and vitamin B12. A supportive hair supplement can also help make your hair stronger, but don’t expect miracles.

Food for healthy hair

In addition to medications, you can also help prevent hair loss by eating a healthy diet. Proteins, for example, produce keratin, one of the essential components of your hair. Therefore, eat eggs, oily fish and legumes regularly. Vitamin B12, zinc and iron are also good for your hair. It is better to avoid one-sided meals and strict diets.
