Ladies,Thinning Hair Can Be Stopped
Many older women worry about thinning hair and hair loss. Not to alarm you, but thinning hair (and what can appear to be thinning hair) can be a problem for women and girls of all ages.
If you have thinning hair, know that it can lead to permanent hair loss, but it doesn’t have to. As a licensed trichologist, I know there are things you can do to remedy thinning hair and stimulate hair growth.
Who experiences thinning hair?
Everyone can experience thinning hair for any number of reasons. To see if your hair is thinning, look to the scalp. With thinning hair you will see less hair at the scalp, and skin will be visible. Older individuals are most likely to experience thinning hair, as it is one effect of aging. For many younger women, particularly women in their 20s, thinning hair is caused by the things these ladies do to their hair, like using bonding agents and glue. Thinning hair may be an indication of a more serious problem, however. Improper diet or other health issues can cause thinning, especially in the younger population. Because of this, you need a scalp examination at the first sign of thinning hair to identify the cause and to create a plan of action to prevent more hair loss.
Thinning vs. Breaking
Many women notice that their hair is becoming less full or find that they are losing a lot of hair during brushing or washing. This doesn’t necessarily mean that hair is thinning; if you don’t see skin at the scalp, you probably actually have breakage that is usually due to chemical treatments, relaxers, heat treatments, and other processes that can cause hair strands to break, usually near the scalp. If you are experiencing breakage, you want your hair to grow back thick and healthy, but don’t try to do this alone. The things many try to remedy breaking hair can actually worsen the problem. Meet with a hair and scalp expert to help pinpoint the cause of the breakage and to receive proper treatment and styling that can help stop breakage.
Stop Thinning Hair
If you have thinning hair, know that you aren’t fated to complete hair loss! Follow these three steps to get on the path to fuller, healthier hair:
- Meet with a scalp and hair expert. Visit a Trichologist immediately if you see or suspect thinning hair; the longer you wait the more damage that can be done and the harder it can be to regrow hair. If you are in the Houston area, a consultation at my Healthy Hair Salon can be quite beneficial. Upon examining your scalp and hair, I am able to help identify the underlying problem causing your hair to thin or break, and I can recommend a course of action.
- Take care of the underlying problem. To stop thinning hair, you need to stop whatever it is that is causing thinning hair. This may mean that you need to visit with your physician to address any medical issues. You could have to make an appointment with a nutritionist who can help create a more healthful diet. You may need a Detoxification Treatment to remove any medical or other residues that are preventing growth. Whatever it is that is causing your hair to thin, you need to take care of the problem if you want thicker, healthier hair.
- Restore your hair. For all women, hair restoration, replacement, or reconstruction is possible. The particular plan of action for either stimulating new growth or replacing lost hair will vary from person to person, so again, visiting a Trichologist is best so you can determine which method is right for you as you revive your beautiful, healthy hair.
