How to cope with hair loss

How to deal with hair loss

Losing your hair is perfectly normal, in fact we shed up to 100 hairs a day. But, for some women hair loss is more serious and it’s affecting a growing number of women under 40. So what can trigger hair loss and how can you cope if you find it happening to you?

Well the first thing is, don’t panic. While you may think that hair loss only happens to women aged 50 and over, you may be surprised to hear that 50% of women aged 18 to 40% will experience it. So don’t worry, you’re not alone!

And despite what you might have heard, hair styling and dying doesn’t normally cause hair loss, although there is such a thing as traction alopecia, which can occur when the hair is pulled back too tightly for an extended period of time.

In fact one of the most common causes of hair loss is a life changing event – like moving house, a pregnancy, or a bereavement, which I think most of us will agree are pretty stressful times!  There has also been research to suggest that low nutrient levels and fad diets can result in hair loss. And while you might find it a little disturbing to see a gradual thinning of your hair, or even larger amounts falling out, most of the time it is temporary and is a result of your physical or emotional well-being. But remember it’s always worth visiting your GP if you do have any concerns about hair loss.

So what should you do if you experience hair loss? Treatment really does depend on the individual and the cause of the hair loss, but there are other lots of options available, including wigs. I have to say that wigs have come a long way from the cheaper ones you might remember from days gone by. In fact some wigs look better than real hair. They look natural, with some great colours and cuts. And are ideal for those who might be experience hair loss.If you’re looking for ladies wigs, human hair wigs, and real hair wigs then visit the Joseph’s Wigs shop or website.

    I cannot even comprehend how upsetting it would be to deal with serious hair loss. You’re completely right about how great and natural a lot of wigs are nowadays though!

    Funnily enough, I’ve just published a post about testing as many hair growth remedies as possible with the aim of growing my hair as long as possible, as my hair never ever grows past a certain length! I’m also hoping it’ll help people with hair loss by defining which remedies actually work for growth!
