There’s nothing worse than brushing out handfuls of hair every morning! Although it’s normal to lose between 50-100 strands of hair a day, it can be concerning when it seems like your hair is thinning right before your eyes. Many things can affect hair loss, including hormonal changes, weight loss and general aging. But you don’t have to live with hair loss – because hair loss shouldn’t be a problem in 2021! We offer treatments and products which actively combat hair loss to give you thicker, fuller, more beautiful hair.
What causes hair loss?
Hormones & Genetics
Hair loss can happen at any stage in your life. There are certain things that can trigger this process, like experiencing pregnancy, rapid weight loss, or a serious illness. Hormonal changes and stress can also affect hair production. Hair loss can be hereditary as well, being passed down through generations (it’s called androgenic alopecia).
External hair loss factors
Our genetics don’t always dictate the occurrence of our hair loss. Certain external factors can play a big role in hair loss. These can include:
- Wearing a hairstyle that pulls on the scalp. When your hair is continually pulled by tight hairstyles, the continual pulling can lead to permanent hair loss. This is called traction alopecia (and it can even be caused by using hair extensions to make the hair appear fuller or longer!).
- Twirling or pulling at the hair. Some people twirl or pull their hair as a means to reduce stress, sometimes doing it without realising! The name for this is trichotillomania.
- Bleaching, perming and relaxing the hair. Chemically treating your hair can cause it to thin due to weakening the hair and causing it to snap. Always use these methods in moderation!
- Nutrition deficiency. If you’re deficient in essential nutrients such as iron, protein, zinc or biotin, hair loss can occur as a result.
What can be done about hair loss?
A treatment we use in clinic to combat hair loss is platelet rich plasma (PRP), which helps to restore hair growth after the follicles have begun shrinking. PRP is used by both males and females as an effective treatment to combat hair loss. Speak to us today about assessing your suitability for this treatment.
