HELP! My hair is falling out!

03 color 600x450 comp 3338728 HELP! My hair is falling out!

“Why is my hair getting thinner? “

Hair loss is a widespread concern amongst women and men, with over 65% of people affected by hair loss. It’s also the No.1 physical worry for 70% of men ahead of weight and wrinkles.

As a hairdresser I get asked this question more often than not. There are a lot of reasons why people suffer from hair loss, the following can be the main reasons why:

  1. Blood: Get your bloods checked, low Iron levels can result in heavy hair loss.

  2. HormonesHormone changes, after having a baby your hormones will change and you might see your hair thinning out due to that reason. It will start to return to normal as your hormones do.      *CongratulationsHere’s your gorgeous new baby, but sorry  you’re not gonna be looking too hot without your hair. 

  3. Family HistoryYou may not know this but usually the case is your hair loss is hereditary, you may have taken after a parent who suffered from hair loss. In men, in most cases their hair loss is hereditary. They take after their father or grandfather for their lack of hair. Looking like my parents wasn’t enough? Why couldn’t I just inherit their money not their hair loss…

  4. AgeAnd as if getting older isn’t bad enough, and all the other health problems we’ve to deal with you’d think our hair wouldn’t be the one to let us down.. Both men AND women, as we get older our hair tends to fall out around October/November but it doesn’t regenerate as quickly as it did when we were younger, so as a result we lose a little bit of our hair every year, it doesn’t start growing back until the April or March of the next year.

  5. ShockThis can have a detrimental affect on our hair, sometimes you don’t notice until a few months later how much hair you’ve lost, until it begins to grow back. Could you consider the shock of having so little hair as the shock that caused you to lose it in the first place?

However, as always, we have the solution to your problem. There are so many hair care products to help you battle your hair loss. This is a battle you can win.

Now we start to lose quite a lot of hair, in the Autumn/Winter months. This is the perfect time to get your Kérastase Specifique 6 week course to help maintain hair density and reduce the rate of hair loss. This is also important to do in Spring.

You can then follow-up in-between with your Kérastase Stimuliste spray which maintains the healthy growth.

And for regular use during your busy week, shampoo your hair with the Kérastase Bain Prévention Shampoo.  It is advised to be used as part of your anti-thinning intense course as it normalises the scalp.

If you are concerned about hair loss or would like to chat about it, why not come and see me in the salon, and we discuss your options for treating your hair loss.
