Don’t worry about your hair loss. Take action.

The truth is, everyone loses their hair. Some women just lose theirs faster than others, and this can lead to temporary or even permanent hair loss. If you’ve noticed clumps of hair falling out into your brush, or more strands left on the shower floor, don’t panic. Recognize what’s happening and then take action.

Understand Common Causes

About 50% of women will experience some degree of hair loss or thinning hair before age 50, which only worsens with menopause. If you are experiencing menopause, this could be the reason for your hair loss.

If your hair has been shedding excessively over several months after a traumatic event, your hair loss could be stress-induced. The shedding is normal and temporary but can have lasting effects if the stress persists.

If you’re battling a serious illness, it could be the cause of your hair loss. Talk with your doctor about the side effects you’re experiencing from treatment or medication.

If you’ve lost a considerable amount of weight in a short period of time, your body may shed hair as a way to cope with the sudden change. This is typically temporary and your hair will grow back once your diet improves.

Have it Diagnosed Professionally

Your hair is falling out for a reason so it’s important for you to discover why. Each form of hair loss requires different treatment so it would be wise for you to consult a professional. The causes are vast, ranging from stress and weight loss to cancer and chemotherapy. The first step in addressing your hair loss is figuring out what’s causing it.

Consider a Wig

Once you’ve established the root of your hair loss, you can begin treatment to reverse it. In the meantime, or if the condition is permanent, consider trying a wig on for size.
