Noticing thinning hair can be devastating for women of all ages. It can sometimes feel like a never-ending battle with your hairbrush to disguise a showing scalp. Perhaps it is a thinning hairline, widening part or diffuse all over hair loss.
Whatever the signs that alerted you, the fact is your hair is not the same as it was 10 years ago. But there are treatment options out there that can not only replace a full head of hair, but your confidence too!
It’s important to seek the reason behind your hair loss. In order to find the correct treatment for your situation, the prognosis of your hair shedding needs to be determined. Hair loss has a wide spectrum. There are countless reasons behind excessive hair falling.
For this reason, it is crucial to not just Google your symptoms and diagnose yourself. You should see a dermatologist or trichologist who can give the correct diagnosis.
Once you have met with a medical consultant, they will be able to test you in several ways. The most common is a full blood count, to see if you have any deficiencies, or if you have a hormonal or thyroid issue. There are a few different kinds of deficiencies that can cause hair loss, but the most common are:
Iron – A lack of iron can cause a lower amount of oxygen to reach the hair follicles, resulting in the hairs going into a ‘rest state’ and dropping out.
Ferritin – This nutrient is stored in the hair follicle. When the body is short on iron, it steals the ferritin. This causes the life cycle to get shorter, and can also affect the quality of the hair, making it brittle.
Biotin – A lack of biotin can cause hair to become brittle, which can then cause the hairs to snap.
Zinc – Consuming zinc keeps hair nourished and healthy, without it, the hair can become dry and damaged.
If you’re looking for a sure-fire way to not only disguise thinning hair, but also rebuild your confidence, a hair system is the way to go. There are many options in terms of hair replacement.
