So you are starting to lose your hair. Here are some lessons that I learned when I started to lose my hair. First of all do not panic like I did. For it is not unusual for both men and women to start to lose their hair. In fact, over a hundred million people are in the process of losing their hair, in just the United States alone.
What To Do
Determine The Cause -There is several conditions that can cause hair loss. So the first thing to do is to determine the cause. There are many conditions that can cause temporary loss such as stress, certain medicines, pregnancy, hormone imbalance, sickness, diet, lack of nutrition, improper hair care and other causes.
Determine Solution – If your loss is temporary, correcting the cause will allow you to re-grow your hair. For example, if it is caused by stress, re-moving the source of the stress will cause your hair to stop falling out and allow you to re-grow the hair you lost.
Monitor Your Progression – Once you have implemented your solution, monitor your progress. When you are trying to recover hair from some condition that was temporary, your success rate should be 100%.
Cover Up- While you are re-growing your hair you can wear different hairstyles, scarves or hats to cover up your loss. Talk to your hair stylist about the different styles you can wear to cover your loss.
What Not To Do
Do Not Panic -Sure it can be emotionally unsettling when you first start losing your hair, but panicking is not the answer. You need to calmly perform the items I have listed under “what to do”.
Hair Loss Products – Do not jump on the first product you read about to stop your loss. For example, some shampoos claim to stop hair loss, but most do not. All they do is make your hair look fuller and do not stop hair loss.
Hair Care – Look at how you care for your hair. When you are trying to re-grow your hair and stop further hair loss, do not perm your hair to often. Do not swim in chlorinated water, use a cap and wash your hair right after swimming.
Conclusion -These is a few things you should do and not do when you determine you are losing your hair. Hopefully they are of some help to you.
