While it is normal to lose 50 to 100 hairs every day, certain actions in your hair routine can amplify this phenomenon. Because there is no question of your pretty mane losing its splendor, Altesse Studio shares its tips for limiting hair loss and taking care of your scalp, day after day.

What to do against hair loss? Good reflexes 

It only takes a few changes to your hair routine to prevent hair loss.

Brush your hair with a boar bristle brush

Use a boar bristle brush to gently brush your hair, prevent hair loss and stimulate the growth of your mane. And for this, the brush from the Altesse Prestige collection is your best ally! Its unique and ancestral stacking technique gently massages your scalp, promoting the proper diffusion of essential nutrients to the hair bulbs, and thus stimulating the growth of your hair.

Reduce the use of heating appliances

Obviously, the ideal would be to limit their use as much as possible, for special occasions for example. But if the call for straightening is stronger than anything to tame your frizz , then keep these devices away from the root to avoid overheating (20 cm for the hairdryer and 1 to 2 cm minimum for the straightener). And above all, be sure to set their temperature to a minimum.

Stay hydrated and eat a balanced diet

It's a fact: a lack of nutrients such as iron, zinc or vitamin B can lead to a reduction in hair density. It is therefore essential to adopt a balanced diet to avoid hair loss. Furthermore, drinking enough water is essential to prevent alopecia. And for good reason, hair is made up of 25% water!

Bad habits that accelerate hair loss

We think we're doing the right thing, but certain actions can lead to a loss of hair mass. Explanations.

Unhealthy brushing habits 

Do you detangle from roots to ends? If the answer is yes, then it's time to reverse your approach to avoid hair loss: start with the ends, then gradually move up towards the roots. This will allow you to remove the knots gradually without generating tension on the roots. Another habit that promotes hair loss is the use of a plastic or stiff bristle brush. Instead of gently detangling, the bristles grab the hair and pull it out.

Good to know : avoid tying your hair too often and too tightly to limit tension on the hair bulbs.

Excessive use of heating devices

It's the gesture that some people can't do without before starting their day: taking their hair dryer, then using their straightener to tame their mane. And yet, these devices that we believe to be our allies can damage hair follicles, causing hair loss. This is especially the case when they are used too close to the scalp and at high temperatures.

Aggressive hair products

Repeated coloring and bleaching, straightening and perming are all processes that you should be wary of if you want to maintain your hair mass. Often composed of harmful substances, they can damage not only the hair fiber, but also the scalp and hair follicles.


Please note : there are also uncontrollable factors that cause chronic hair loss. Among them, genetics and heredity, medical treatments (contraceptive pill, anticoagulants, thyroid treatments, etc.) or even hormonal imbalances. It is essential to consult your doctor if you notice abnormal hair loss.
