It is important to understand what hair loss is, so here’s a quick summary: Noramlly a healthy person sheds about 50 to 100 hairs every day, and most of these hairs grow back. A healthy hair has a life cycle of about three to six years. Hair loss becomes a problem when the hairs do not grow back or when hairs are shed at an abnormally rapid rate (several hundreds hairs per day). Hair loss (or alopecia) afflicts millions of people worldwide — including men and women. 24% of women say losing their hair is like losing a limb and the average age of women with thinning hair is 25-35.
Thin hair can be caused by a number of factors, including certain medications and chemotherapy, genetics, rapid weight loss, chronic stress, severe dandruff, hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, and poor scalp circulation.
Here are our some top tips to help you fight against thinning hair and go from sparse to Fabulous.
1. Eat well and get moving
It’s simple, our bodies thrive on good food and exercise. Not only does it nourish our insides, but exercise will also help to release that ever so important serotonin, to make you feel happier. Hair loss can be a vicious cycle, we lose our hair so we don’t feel great about ourselves, and when we are down in the dumps our body isn’t loving life. So let’s focus on what we can control, and that is what we put in our bellies and how often we get moving. Even a light 30 min walk, 3-4 a week, will help clear the mind and get your serotonin pumping,
When it comes to what we put in, the hair gets off on good proteins, iron, zinc, and vitamin B12. Next time you visit the supermarket make sure you stock up on fish, leafy greens, lean meats and chicken, nuts and beans.
Minoxidil is one of the most commonly sold products which can help women suffering from gradually thinning hair or larger areas of hair loss on the top of the scalp. This product may be known as a more popular name, Rogaine. The 5% strength, Topical Minoxidil solution, is safe for women, and does not require a prescription. The research has shown that 40% of individuals (both men and women) will see new hair growth when Minoxoldil is applied to the scalp twice a day.
3. Cover the thin hair area with a Human Hair Topper
Human Hair Toppers can not only cover the areas on your head that may be experiencing hair loss, but they can also add more volume to your own bio hair. With just a quick flip and clip and there you go with a fuller hair all of sudden.
Hair toppers come in a range of colours and bases that cover smaller to larger areas on the scalp.
When you purchase a Human Hair Topper, the most important things you need to pay attention to is the Color and Base Size of the topper. The Hair Color of the topper should match your own bio hair color. And the Base size should be large enough to color the area of your thinning hair.
