How to prevent hair loss

how to prevent hair lossHair on your pillow, hair in your brush or comb, your hair in the shower drain. Startled, you wonder, “Am I going bald?” You want to keep your luxuriant hair. No one wants to see their hair thinning.

We all lose hair, but fortunately it grows back. However, when you start to lose more hair than before,  then you really begin to notice it. And we are often not happy about it.

You already know if you suffer from abnormal hair loss. You find more hair than usual in your brush or comb, or in the sink in the morning. You can often see it in your own hair. In women, hair becomes thinner across the board. Bangs are less full, and a thinner ponytail may indicate hair loss. For men it’s even easier to observe. They have to deal with hairline recession and the balding circle on top of the head.

Hair loss and baldness are often genetically determined. If your relatives tend to have hair loss, it is possible (but not certain) that you yourself will also have it. And there is, unfortunately, not a miracle drug for this type of baldness.

There are products for hair loss, but as always, it is difficult to understand why one really works and another is less effective. Your doctor can help you understand it. Besides genetic predisposition, there may be other causes for hair loss. Therefore, it is always good to consult your doctor to determine exactly what’s going on in your particular case.

Abnormal hair loss may be due to a change in hormones. Or it could be a symptom of a disease. Hair loss can also be caused by the use of certain medications. And in some cases it is caused by the “mishandling” of your hair (too aggressive styling techniques or harsh chemicals, for example). Also, factors such as stress, and daily diet play a role. Together with your doctor you can determine what the cause of your hair loss is, and discuss what treatments are best for you.

In addition, the hairdresser can lend a hand to disguise your hair loss. A new hair style can sometimes do very good “corrective” work.
