Surprising Facts About Hair Loss Part 2

More Hair Loss Facts

 

Different types of hair loss affect everyone differently, so it is important to check with your doctor to be sure about your particular hair loss. However, here are some general hair loss facts you might like to know!

 

Hormonal Changes Can Cause Permanent or Temporary Hair Loss

 

One of the most common causes of hair loss in young women is hormonal hair loss. Menopause is one of the leading causes of female hair loss, but other abrupt hormonal changes such as those caused by pregnancy or starting/stopping birth control can also cause hair loss.

 

There are Many Hair Loss Myths

 

Contrary to popular belief, permanent hair loss is not caused by perms, coloring your hair, over-shampooing, wearing hats, or dandruff. Shaving your head will not make your hair grow back thicker, and standing on your head won’t help your hair grow faster.

Up to 50% of Women Experience Hair Loss at Least Once in their Lifetime

 

Not only is hair loss common in men, it is also extremely common in women! Since there are so many different ways a woman can experience hair loss, it isn’t so surprising that it happens to a large portion of the population.

    Sandy, buy a wig that looks like your original hair. Learn how to take care of it and get used to wearing it. Don’t worry about going bald or why. I am 74, have worn a wig on vacations and when I got breast cancer, I was so happy i had my wig. Most people didn’t know that I was sick at the college where I worked. Whatever reason for thinning hair there is a solution be happy, enjoy each day and find a wig you feel comfortable wearing.

    Stress causes increased cortisol which causes hair loss. Ask your doctor to test these levels. I am experiencing the same and don’t know why. My hair is coming out normally but no follicles are forming to replace them. Therefore I know what I have on my head is all I have. I am totally freaking out. Good luck.

    Stress can certainly cause hair loss.

    Be careful of “toppers.” They often attach with clips. If you don’t move the clips around occasionally, they can cause hair loss from the constant pulling. This happened to me.

    I prefer a full wig. I have grown my hair longer and roll it into pincurls at the back, which help anchor the bottom back of the wig. Then I user a bobby pin at each side of the top (open weave caps) to secure the front.

    I love my wigs – my friends are jealous because it really only takes me a few minutes to get ready to go! :-)

    I have had tremendous itchy scalp for about six years, have seen dermatologists 4-5 times, biopsy, given one topical – hair so thin, am wearing a wig. Have tried, rice water, listerine, broo shampoo, baking soda, vinegar, every kind of shampoo and home remedies imaginable, every counter shampoo I saw on the “doctors” where a woman had a laser treatment – my dermatologist wouldn’t do it. I take Metformin, Zyrtec, aspirin and metropolol. I can’t take iron, but eat a variety of foods with that and magnesium in; eat a few almonds a day, eat oatmeal, fruits and drink Lipton tea all day. Any ideas?.

    I am 46 years old and have lost most of my hair, still have a little but if I wash it the rest will probably go. I contracted something from an ex. I am not sure what to do in this matter. Should I look into wig optiobs orvis their a way I can recover my hair and grow new hair.

    My hair is thinning on top and in thr back at crown. What do you suggest?

  • Sandy sparks: August 24, 2018

    My hair has a lot of breakage around face and hair line on face is going in inches. My hair is extremely thin on top also. I have colored my hair for years because of gray. I am 75 and am about to lose my mind with thoughts of going bald. I have had a lot of stress the last 6-7 years. Does stress cause this kind of loss?
