1.  Limit your use of Hair dryers.

Heat weakens hair proteins and constant heating and drying can lead to brittleness and fragility which can cause hair loss. So, natural drying is best for your hair. Other devices that heat your hair include hot curlers and hot brushes. Also if you do use heated tools, be careful because burned scalps can permanently damage hair follicles.

2.  Cut down on dyes and chemicals.

Use of hair coloring chemical increases the chances of serious hair damage being done to your hair. Never color your hair more often than every 4-6 weeks. If you do color your hair, its a good idea to use a conditioning shampoo or conditioner after shampooing.

3.  Have a healthy balanced diet.

A healthy body is more likely to have healthy hair than an unhealthy one. It is possible that hair loss can be slowed by a healthy diet filled with fruits and vegetables

4.  Consume plenty of iron.

Iron is an essential mineral and its deficiency can cause anemia that disrupts the supply of nutrients to your hair follicles, potentially increasing hair loss. So, to avoid this, be sure to consume iron rich food in your diet which includes red meat, chicken, fish, green vegetables like broccoli, spinach etc.

5.  Eat enough proteins.

A deficiency in protein can lead to dry and weak hair and ultimately hair loss. Adequate protein provides amino acids that strengthen hair. Proteins can be obtained from seafood, milk, cheese, eggs, beans, brown rice, nuts, broccoli etc.

6.  Consume vitamin C.

Foods with plenty of vitamin c help in good absorption of iron, so try and combine iron rich foods with those that are rich in vitamin c. Vitamin c also helps in the production of collagen which in turn strengthens capillaries which supply your hair shafts. Good sources of vitamin c include tomatoes, blueberries, blackberries, citrus fruits etc.

7.  Ensure you get enough omega 3 fatty acids.

These fats keep hair healthy and have a role in preventing hair from becoming dry and brittle. They are important fats that your body cannot make itself, but have to be obtained through your diet. These fats can be obtained from fishes such as tuna, salmon and also from nuts, walnuts, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds.

8.  Eat foods rich in biotin.

Biotin is a water soluble vitamin b. It is of particular importance for your hair, as its deficiency can cause your hair to become brittle and could accelerate their loss. Good sources of biotin include egg white, liver, walnuts, yeast, soy floor.

9.  Hair oil massage.

The first step that you can to reduce hair loss is to massage your scalp with hair oil. Proper hair and scalp massage will increase blood flow to hair follicles, condition scalp and enhance the strength of your hair roots. You can use hair oils like coconut or almond oil, castor oil, amla oil. Add a few drops of rosemary essential oil to the base oil for better and faster results. Massage with any of the above mentioned oils in your hair and scalp by applying  light pressure with the fingertips. Do it at least once a month.

10.  Aloe vera and green tea.

Aloe vera contains enzymes that directly promote hair growth. Also its alkalizing properties can help bring the scalp and hair pH to a more desirable level, that can greatly promote hair growth. Regular use can also relieve scalp itching, redness and inflammation. 
Moreover, green tea also prevents hair loss and promote hair growth. Apply warm green tea (two bags brewed in one cup of water) on your scalp and leave it for an hour and then rinse it.
