What can anyone?

Wash your hair with mild shampoo. The frequency of hair washing is without effect on hair loss.

Use after shampooing hair conditioners so that the hair is easier to comb.

Avoid mechanical damage to the hair (strict hairstyles with tight hairpins, combs and brushes the hair resistant to hot blow-drying, salt water and sunlight).

Eat healthy (wholesome, plentiful vegetables and salad, rich in vitamins, low in alcohol). Reduce mental stress (enough rest, recreational sports, adequate sleep, weekend in nature).

Permanent waves, hair colors and hair sprays can damage the hair, but not hair gels and waxes.
