Do you have a hair problem? Are you suffering from hair loss or baldness? Well, don’t despair. This article is dedicated to you. Precious Moments talks to a trichologist (someone who studies hair) to address this concern.

At least 85 percent of men are suffering from some form of baldness. It is also interesting to note that a great number of women are also agonizing from hair loss.


Baldness can be attributed to genetic predisposition, according to a hair specialist. Maybe you inherited the genes from your parents or grandparents. The baldness trait (aside from other families “heirlooms”) can go back as far as six generations. Indeed, we see a lot of families where baldness is easily traceable.

However, another culprit, maybe the lack of testosterone, which is the male hormone that promotes hair in the chest and in the face. Testosterone on its own will not cause baldness, otherwise, all males would be bald, explained the hair specialist from a leading hair care center.

Shedding

Men and women lose their hair every day. It’s perfectly normal to shed hair because you replace it.

If you’re losing 20 to 30 strands of hair a day that’s quite normal. You must be concerned if you’re losing hair very dramatically or in a great amount.

This shedding of hair is often attributed to an imbalance in the body. And the funny thing is that the loss does not happen immediately. It usually happens three months after the event. For example, if you have gone through a particularly upsetting and shocking car accident, there’s a possibility that you would lose an abnormal amount of hair after about three months.

The hair growth cycle lasts from two to six years. Then it goes to its natural resting phase for three months. The hair comes out, then a new strand will take place from the same root.

For women, the common cause of hair loss is stress, like that experienced when moving from one job to another.

More women now are actually suffering from hair loss partly because they experience more stress. A considerably larger number of women are now in the workforce – occupying higher positions – which are normally male-dominated stations. They are now in charge of companies and corporations. They have to be more aggressive. Now, the aggressive hormone is testosterone – which gives rise to “masculinization.” Yet, they are still expected to look after the household, so their stress is doubled.

If someone is anorexic, she may also suffer severe hair loss since the body divests itself of an inessential nutrient drain to look after its major organs.

Another cause of hair loss is taking birth control pills. However, this is not to generalize. The effects are unpredictable, because birth control pills may create a hormonal imbalance. The effect may be stressed that this is not the rule.

Of special mention when speaking of baldness should be women in their post-menopausal years. After menopause, women may find their hair thinning. As with men, women are also concerned about this unwelcome development by using such products as eyelashes and cosmetics.

Friendly diet

It’s important to have a good diet because you must realize that although the strands above your scalp are dead, the follicles below are alive. As with your body, good nutrition is a must. So you need a healthy diet to have healthy hair.

You need to shampoo regularly. Wash your hair every day. Not just with water, but with shampoo. The hair specialist observed that some men have a habit of washing their hair with water only, which makes it dirtier than before because of the oil in it. With regards to conditioner usage, it depends if your hair is dry or tangly.

Preventive care

To take care of your hair, avoid things like over perming, and heavy coloring. Straightening is the most dangerous thing that you can do to your hair. But as long as it’s done carefully by a professional, it’s perfectly fine.

It is recommended to have a check-up and seek professional help if there’s any dandruff, or if your hair is greasy, or oily, or losing hair.

The first impression is very much important to everyone. And for young people who are concerned about their thin hair, they will get more self-confidence if they feel they look good – and often they look good if their hair is shipshape.

Your hair is very precious and it needs to be treated with extra care. Use preventive care while you still have it because it’s a wonderful asset to have lovely and beautiful hair.
