Hair loss is no laughing matter. In fact, losing hair is known to adversely affect personal, social, and professional life. Hair is one of the first things another person will notice about you, so it’s normal to feel uncomfortable with the idea of losing it.
Stop losing hair. If you are one of the millions of men and women around the world who suffer with hair loss, good news awaits: There are ways to make it stop. Some are non-surgical and are as easy as taking a pill or applying a topical foam each day. Others are more invasive, leveraging advanced surgical technologies and techniques to gently extract and transplant individual hairs (follicular units) from one area of the scalp to another.
Ways to Stop Hair Loss
There are many ways to stop losing hair. Everyone is different, and it’s important to remember that the best way to prevent long term hair loss is to consult a physician. Only a licensed hair loss professional can provide an accurate diagnosis and recommend an effective treatment plan. In addition to scheduling a hair loss evaluation, men and women who want to stop losing hair are wise to consider the following factors:
The body needs a variety of important vitamins and minerals to thrive each day. Along with skin, hair is one of the first parts of the body to show the effects of water, vitamin, and mineral deficiency. To stop and prevent hair loss, be sure to maintain a well-rounded diet rich in protein, biotin, vitamin E, vitamin A, and other important nutrients.
Stress is known to “shock” the hair follicles into a dormant state (i). Typically, this occurs after a serious event that generates a significant amount of mental or physical stress. Car accidents, surgeries, divorce, and loss of loved ones are just a few examples of situations that might trigger bouts of hair loss. Stay proactive in managing stress to stop hair loss and prevent other mental/physical ailments.
There are a number of prescription medications that may cause hair loss. However, *it is important to always consult a physician prior to changing your medication regimen. If you suspect a medication is causing you to lose hair, speak with your physician to explore alternative medications.
4. Hormonal Imbalance
Hormonal imbalances are also known to cause permanent or temporary hair loss. Pregnancy and thyroid disease are just two examples of conditions that cause hormonal imbalances that may lead to hair loss.
