Coping with Hair Loss

When you’re experiencing hair loss, it can be difficult to focus on anything else. It feels like all anyone sees is your thinning hair or bald spots. Carrying on with daily life, spending time with friends or even going out in public seems impossible. No matter the reason or degree, coping with hair loss can be very difficult. It’s important to recognize the emotional burden and take steps to address it.

First and most importantly, know that you’re not alone. It is estimated that 30 million women in the United States suffer from hair loss. It may seem that everyone around you has a thick head of hair, but there are millions of other women across the country dealing with thinning hair just like you are.

 

It may help to find a hair loss forum or group – either online or in person – in which you can discuss your feelings about hair loss and how it is affecting your life. There is great comfort in solidarity, and finding others in the same situation as you can give you strength to deal with the most difficult days.

 

When you’re having trouble coping with hair loss, try to focus on what you have, not what you don’t. That may be other physical features, skills or career accomplishments, your family or friends, hobbies or fitness, or anything else that makes you feel happy and healthy. Remember that life is rich and multifaceted, and your hair loss is only one aspect of that.

 

If you’re considering hair restoration or replacement, proactively exploring and knowing the available options can help you feel better and more in control of your situation.

 

And finally, give yourself permission to feel how you feel, and seek professional help if you’re having trouble dealing with your emotions. Hair loss can have a very real effect on emotional wellbeing, and it’s important not to minimize that.

In addition to extensions, wigs and related hair loss solutions, we also carry a wide range of hair care products that are designed to reverse thinning and revitalize the scalp and hair. Products include scientifically formulated shampoos and conditioners, overnight scalp treatments, leave-in thickeners, styling products and more. Most products are available for both natural and color-treated hair.

These products work by deep cleaning and improving the health of the scalp – clearing product buildup and excess oil from hair follicles and increasing blood flow to the scalp.

While that new growth is occurring, styling products can help to volumize and style your hair to make it appear thicker and healthier.

Vitamins can also be highly beneficial for those experiencing thinning hair. These daily supplements contain ingredients proven to promote healthy hair growth and overall health of hair, skin and nails.

Hair Loss 101: Causes and Symptoms

What are the Main Causes and Symptoms of Hair Loss?

hair loss

Hair loss is not a fun side-effect to have to deal with and can cause many of us to become self-conscious about our appearance. However, most of us will not be able to avoid it, either early on or when we get older. There are many different types of hair loss as well as causes. Some are inevitable but some can be prevented and treated. Here are the main causes and symptoms of hair loss:

Hair Loss Causes

Family history – Hair loss is inherited in most cases, also known as male or female-pattern baldness.

Stress – This could be from physical stress from surgery or an injury, an illness or emotional stress.

Chemotherapy – This powerful medicine destroys cancer cells but also the cells that help you grow hair.

Physical damage – Pulling on your hair too tightly from ponytails or braids can cause loss. Using curling irons or straighteners too often, as well as coloring your hair can damage it as well.

Age – The older you get, the less your hair will grow naturally. Your hair will get thinner and tends to break more often.

Poor diet – Protein and iron are big building blocks for growing your hair. Any deficiencies in these two will have cause you to lose hair.

Thyroid disease – Most commonly hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism will play a big part in hair loss as well, also combining with stress and diet.

Hair Loss Symptoms

Your symptoms will depend on the type of hair loss you have. Thinning hair happens over time, so you will probably not notice them falling out. If you hair is shedding, you will lose your hair in clumps that fall out. You may notice hair on your pillow after sleeping, or excessive hair in your brush or shower. A general loss of hair would cause you to lose hair all over your scalp, but focal hair loss is in just one area. Inherited hair loss will cause bald spots around the forehead or on the top of the head.
