Any time you see large amounts of hair on your bathroom floor, brush or any other hair grooming spot, it can be alarming. For the majority of people, they like their hair just where it belongs, on their head!
While some hair loss is unavoidable and due to heredity, hormonal changes, stress, medical conditions or medications. Some hair loss is temporary and others can be permanent. You may experience gradual thinning on the top of your hear or circular or patchy bald spots. There are times when it’s possible to experience full-body hair loss and other occasions where it results in patches of scaling that spread over your scalp. Or perhaps, you may have sudden loosening of your hair.
Did you know that certain hairstyles or treatments could give you hair loss as well? If you make small changes to these styles and treatments, you may be able to stop or slow down your amount of hair loss.
Small Changes To Slow Hair Loss
- Do not pull your hair too tight when pulling it back in a ponytail, bun, cornrows or other types of cinched hairstyle. This habit can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia.
- Heated treatments such as perms and hot oil treatments can cause your hair follicles to become inflamed. This inflammation can lead to hair loss.
- Protect your hair from harsh sunlight and other UV lights.
- Use a wide-toothed comb to prevent pulling your hair out.
