It becomes a serious and noticeable problem for women when there is no new hair growth to replace the lost locks. There are any number of reasons that your hair could be thinning or falling out, and it’s important that you meet with your doctor so that you can get to the bottom of it.
But what do you do in the meantime? How do you handle your hair loss until your hair starts to grow healthy and happy all over again?
What kind of haircare products do you use on your hair? Even using the wrong kind of shampoo or styling products can leave your hair damaged and unhealthy. Make sure that you are using haircare products that meet the needs of your hair type. If you have naturally dry hair then you’ll want to avoid products that treat oily hair, as they can continue to strip any natural oils and moisture from your hair. Brittle and dried out hair is hair that can easily break and fall out.
You don’t need to live with thin and patchy hair while it is growing out. According to the haircare professionals at EH Hair Extensions, adding extensions will help you to restore some of that missing volume. Whether you’re looking to restore just missing volume or also looking to restore some of your lost length, you’ll appreciate the way that extensions can give you back your gorgeous long and lush locks in no time at all.
Whether you have hair extensions in place or not, it’s important that you treat your hair well. Brush your hair with a soft-bristled brush that won’t pull at your roots or cause further breakage. Pull your hair up at night or use a soft silk pillowcase so that you can avoid tangles in your hair. Tangles can also lead to breakage and hair loss, in both natural hair and extensions.
When using styling tools avoid high heat that can lead to damage and breakage. Also, be mindful of swimming in both chlorinated and salt water. The better care you take of your care, the more likely it is to look and feel healthy.
Giving thought to your nutrition
While your doctor will be the best person to discuss your overall health with, you should consider what your nutrition and hydration are like. Hair, just like every other part of your body, has specific needs. If you are anemic or suffering from a thyroid condition, as an example, you may be much more likely to see hair loss.
Some find that simply adding more fresh fruits and vegetables to their diet, along with over-the-counter supplements like biotin, can help to encourage new hair growth. Be sure to always consult your doctor before undergoing a new vitamin regimen.
