Don’t Panic, We Have a Solution!
In the past two years, I’ve seen a significant increase in hair loss. Is it normal to experience this kind of shedding? Am I ill, or is there something else at play here?
For better or worse, our hormones contribute to how much hair we lose or keep. Pregnancy, birth control pills, adolescence, and menopause are all common culprits; however, situations such as stress and dieting can cause hormonal imbalances that trigger significant amounts of hair loss.
If you’re noticing a drastic amount of falling out strands, it’s always worth scheduling an appointment with your doctor—especially if your body has recently been affected by something like cancer. Don’t confuse this with breakage though—I’ll get into more details on that soon!
When it comes to supplements for hair and nail growth, biotin is the go-to choice. Dermatologists and hairdressers alike agree on this fact. Biotin has proven to be effective in providing strength and promoting growth, so if you’re looking into supplementing your regime, there’s no harm in giving it a shot!
Women can certainly benefit from drugs like Rogaine, but it’s best to speak with a dermatologist first to determine if you’re an ideal candidate. Cleaning the scalp thoroughly is also beneficial as it stimulates healthy circulation; Healthy Scalp Shampoo is especially effective in this regard since its mild yet stimulating properties make for the perfect combination.
The hormone fluctuations that occur during pregnancy often leave some women with ultra-short “bangs” after giving birth. To hold the bangs back in place, you can use a hairspray like Oribe or a hair cream for added texture and definition. Alternatively, if you prefer to get real bangs cut over them, then consider using an organic leave-in conditioner such as 100%Pure before getting it done.
If it’s not hair loss but rather breakage that you’re experiencing, there is a simpler solution. Hair-straightening treatments, hair color (especially extreme bleaching), and heat damage can all lead to significant breakage; when two or even three of these conditions occur at once, the amount of hair fall increases drastically. So if this sounds like your situation, then turning down the intensity should help tremendously!
To restore your hair’s health, stop using harsh treatments like straightening, bleaching, and curling. Deep conditioning is key; use conditioner in the shower as well as a leave-in conditioner once you get out. However, be mindful of products that contain protein since too much can make your hair brittle and more prone to breakage; remember that having strength combined with flexibility is ideal for healthy locks!
