People don’t like to talk about it, but hair loss in women is more common than you think. Advanced thinning hair doesn’t have to be a cause for despair, however. It’s the twenty-first century and there are a range of options to prevent, treat or solve that hair loss and restore the full head of hair you’re dreaming of.
NORMAL VS. PROBLEM HAIR LOSS
It’s normal to see loose hairs when you’re shampooing, or caught in the bristles of your brush or comb. Each hair on your head only has a limited life cycle, and while this differs from person to person, it’s usually in the range of 2–7 years. If you find that you can’t grow your hair super long, no matter how patient you are, then your hair’s growth cycle just might not last long enough to make those long, lush tresses.
Thinning hair and visible hair loss occurs when the number of hairs you’re losing is more than the number of hairs you’re growing, and it can happen for a bunch of different reasons. Some causes are easily solved with a few lifestyle changes or product switch-ups, but advanced hair loss can call for more permanent solutions, like Hairdreams Microlines, which we offer in salon.
MAINTAIN YOUR HAIR HEALTH
Sometimes all it takes is a period of intense stress or a big life change to see your hair start falling out. While this can be alarming, it’s just a case of making some lifestyle adjustments to restore the balance in your body.
A diet rich in nutrients like iron, zinc and protein ensures your body gets what it needs to grow healthy hair—the bonus is you’ll feel great, too.
You can also take care of your hair and scalp day-to-day, avoiding tight hairstyles and hot tools to maintain the strength and integrity of your hair. Avoid touching or pulling on your hair when you don’t absolutely need to!
MEDICAL CAUSES FOR HAIR LOSS
If you’re going through a period of hormonal change (think pregnancy, childbirth, or menopause), or dealing with thyroid issues, you might notice some hair loss.
Other causes of temporary hair loss might be scalp or skin disorders, or if you’re taking a course of intensive medication or health treatment, like those prescribed for mental illness, cancer, or arthritis.
In these kinds of cases you may be able to ride it out and hope to see restored hair growth when your health or hormones are back to normal. In addition, we recommend the Kerastase Specifique line for proven results in stimulating and boosting thinning hair.
The Stimuliste shampoo revitalizes the scalp and gently cleanses, removing product buildup and making sure your scalp is the best environment for healthy hair follicles. It contains Arginine, a key ingredient that promotes new hair follicles and strengthens weaker ones.
This delivers the quick-fix you’re looking for if excessive hair fall is bringing you down. You’ll see instant thickening results as the treatment spray adds body and texture to your hair, while also soothing and calming the scalp.
HEREDITARY HAIR LOSS
Like male-pattern baldness, women’s hair loss is often genetic, and worsens as you age. While men often see bald spots and receding hairlines, in women genetic hair loss usually presents as thinning.
An FDA-approved treatment like Kerastase Densifique Minoxidil 2% can stave off hair loss and restore new hair growth. Applied topically by yourself at home, Minoxidil is clinically proven to show results after four months (you’ve got to give that hair time to grow, after all!) Minoxidil can be helpful for other causes of hair loss as well—schedule a consultation with us to find out if it’s right for you.
