Many people take pride in their hair, and with modern fashion trends, even more people are enjoying the versatility and style of different haircuts and colours. Whether you change your hair colour every month or simply get trims a few times a year, beautiful tresses give people a sense of confidence. It is completely normal to lose up to 100 strands a day from combing, brushing, or washing your hair. You can gauge what amount of loss is normal for you by paying attention to what you see in your comb or brush after detangling. If hair falls out naturally, what is considered to be excessive hair loss? Here is what you need to know about the causes of excessive hair falling out, and an effective treatment called PRP Mesotherapy for hair loss.
Causes of Excessive Hair Loss
If you have noticed a lot more hair in your brush or shower drain, feeling thinning hair, or seeing more of your scalp, you may be suffering from hair loss. There are many reasons for hair falling out and some are self-inflicted. By changing the following habits, you can take a step in the right direction to prevent extra hair loss than what you are already experiencing.
Too Much Hair Styling
If you wash, shampoo, brush, style, straighten, or dye your hair too much you will experience hair loss. Heat and chemicals are known to weaken the hair, making it susceptible to breakage and falling. The combination of hair treatments and styling does a lot of damage. To prevent hair from frequent manipulation, take a break from the blow-dryer, stick to hair colours close to or darker than your natural colour (to avoid bleaching), and be more gentle with your hair when you detangle or style it.
Combing Wet Hair
Did you know your hair is the most fragile when it is wet? The strands are more prone to breakage, so if you usually comb or brush your hair when it is wet you could be doing a lot of damage. For people with very curly hair, combing it when wet may be the only option. In this case, lather your hair in a conditioner made from natural ingredients so it has a slippery texture. Then, carefully section your hair and, using a wide-toothed comb, work through the tangles.
Emotional or Physical Stress
When people go through traumatic experiences such as a divorce, a death in the family, a big job change, or a move, they have elevated stress levels. If you have been going through a challenging situation that is above average, it may be contributing to your hair loss. Physical stress, such as an operation or dramatic weight loss, can also contribute to hair loss.
Tension at the Scalp
It is strongly recommended not to wear tight ponytails or braids as these hairstyles tug on the hair follicles and damages them beyond repair. Tight hairstyles can cause progressive thinning of the hairline as well. It seems there are more benefits to letting your hair down!
Several deficiencies in your food can lead to hair loss. If you are constantly eating junk food or take out, you won’t see any benefit to the health of your hair, skin, or nails. A healthy diet rich in protein, essential fatty acids, iron, and vitamins will help you grow smooth, strong, healthy hair. The saying rings true: “You are what you eat!”
