Anastasia Sidorova Hair Care Tips: How to Win Over Alopecia

According to the National Institute of Health, androgenic alopecia affects approximately 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States. (1) It can start at any age, even when you are a teenager. Although alopecia affects both men and women equally, women often suffer greater impact because it is socially less acceptable for them to have in thinner, shorter, and dull hair. Alopecia can cause a lot of emotional stress and severely affect the quality of a woman’s life. Thankfully, this form of hair loss is treatable, provided you stick to a good hair care routine as suggested by a qualified dermatologist or trichologist.

In this blog, we will share with you some helpful tips by internet celebrity Anastasia Sidorova, a girl who has successfully fought alopecia and now, she is known as a real-life Rapunzel with long, red locks that measure more than 106 cm. Since she has personally experienced hair thinning and balding, she knows the challenges very well. Therefore, she has chosen to become a qualified trichologist. Currently, she has almost 1 million followers on instagram and she is the hair model for Pantene Russia. Being a qualified trichologist and an alopecia patient, Anastasiya Sidorova has extensive knowledge of stimulating hair growth, creating at-home hair masks, and preparing a complete hair care diet plan. If you too want to have insanely gorgeous hair like her, here are a few things that you must do:

Diet is the first thing to work on

Anastasia Sidorova was detected with alopecia when she was just 18 years old. She knew that she would never be happy unless she gets her hair back. Although it was quite a challenging task, she was completely determined to do what it would take to grow her hair back. And, the first thing she worked on was her diet. She strongly recommends that we must keep a balance in our diet. Protein-rich food such as milk, eggs, fish, and legumes are a major part of her diet. She also recommends eating food rich in omega 3 fatty acids such as salmon and flaxseed. Anastasiya Sidorova relies on vitamin A and vitamin D supplements, as these nutrients are very difficult to get through diet. If you want to try some hair supplements, here are some options that you must consider. These are some of the top-selling hair supplements on Amazon with 4+ star ratings and thousands of positive reviews.

These days, all of us are fond of crazy diet plans. Whether it is a keto diet, no-sugar diet, or a paleo diet, we all love to experiment with them, assuming that it is going to make us become healthier and happier. However, Anastasia Sidorova is totally against all these diets, unless you are supervised regularly by a licensed and experienced dietician. Most of these diets deprive our body of something or the other. When our body is deprived of a specific nutrient, the first thing it does is to stop using it for less important tasks such as growing our hair.

Do not hesitate to seek help when needed

When Anastasia Sidorova started experiencing hair fall in patches, she did not ignore it. Instead, she consulted a trichologist at the earliest and followed her advice throughout the treatment process. It is her advice and strict guidelines that helped Anastasia recover so well. Very often, we ignore the initial signs of alopecia and seek professional help only when the disease has progressed. It is easier to control hair fall and balding if you start the treatment early. So, if you are experiencing excessive hair fall, i.e. more than 150 strands a day, please consult a dermatologist or a trichologist at the earliest and start the treatment.

Treat your hair gently

Accept it; we all have been very abusive towards our hair. Whether straightening them with the flat iron or changing their color using harsh chemicals, we do not think twice before making our hair undergo harsh treatments, only to make us look better for a few hours or for a few days. But, have you ever wondered about the long term effect of those harsh treatments?

Anastasia Sidorova, the girl who fought alopecia at an age when she was supposed to be very carefree about her life, knows the real struggle behind re-growing her hair. She suggests the below mentioned ways to keep your hair healthy and growing:

  • Avoid using hair straighteners and blow dryers as much as possible. It sounds very difficult but the more you treat your hair with heat, the more you will end up damaging them.  Use heating tools only for special occasions and not regularly.
  • Shower with lukewarm or cold water. Hot showers can make your hair dry and brittle.
  • Make sure you massage your scalp at least twice a week. You can use any oil for massage. Coconut oil and olive oil are very good scalp moisturizers but you can mix them up with any essential oil of your choice such as jojoba oil, black castor oil, tea tree oil, cedarwood oil, avocado oil, etc.
  • Wash your hair at least once a week in winter and twice in summer. A clean scalp will keep inflammations and infections away, thereby minimizing hair fall. While washing, use as minimum shampoo as possible. Let the shampoo work on your hair for a few minutes and then rinse it off properly.
  • Let your hair dry on its own, instead of using a blow dryer. Anastasia Sidorova’s hair take quite a few hours to dry and yet, she doesn’t get tempted to take out her dryer. So, keep your hair dryer away and forget about it.
  • Keep trimming your hair once in every 2-3 months. Regular trimming is necessary to get rid of split ends that can make your hair look dull and lifeless.

As obvious, Anastasia Sidorova Hair Care Tips are pretty easy to follow. You just have to stay committed and take out some time from your busy schedule to pamper your hair as much as possible.
