If your hormone levels are within normal ranges, and you continue to experience hair thinning and loss, the following suggestion of managing stress, trying different supplements, and watching your diet may slow hair loss and help to begin a re-growth cycle.Stress is the most common external cause of hair loss. Here is an easy-to-follow, quick-fix plan that can be implemented simply and immediately producing dramatic calming effects.

Breathe
Take 10 deep breaths in and out at least twice daily. When you feel stress climbing, close your eyes and concentrate on slow and controlled breathing. Breathe in through your nose to the count of four and breathe out to the count of six or seven. Repeat 10 times. You will feel better!

Eat at regular intervals
Include protein in your diet as well as plenty of whole grains, fruits, and veggies. Avoid fast food and other sugary, fat-laden foods.

Stay hydrated
Drink at least eight glasses of water a day.

Exercise
Daily exercise promotes good health physically, mentally, and emotionally – and you’ll look better, too.

Pamper yourself
Take daily time-outs. When you do this, the stress hormones have nowhere to go but down. Focusing on yourself for even a few minutes will provide a break from the intensity and allow your adrenals a much-needed rest. The mental boost you gain from taking a break better equips you to deal with the sources of stress.

Laugh, pray, and smile
And tell yourself you are worth being blessed.
