Losing hair is something that affects much more than the physical appearance. Who begins to see the changes due to this condition, begins to perceive other effects that can range from anxiety to depression.
For most women, for example, hair is more than just the fibers that cover their skin. Hair could be a very important part of their personality, a way to express their own self, and that’s one of the reasons why hair loss can’t be taken lightly.
Even though hair loss has been linked mainly to guys, women also suffer from it, and it can be as devastating or more as it is for a man. But in both cases, for males or females, the first step before pursuing any hair loss treatment, is to start looking for a possible cause, and according to experts, those causes might vary from men to women. However, there are a few common causes detected that can affect both, male and female patients:
- Heredity (Family History)
- Medical Conditions or Infections
- Some Medicines
- Poor diet
- Hormonal Changes
- Certain Hairstyles
For some of those causes, specialists have certain recommendations that could help you to stop or avoid the hair loss process:
- Avoid tight hairstyles if you have thin and fine hair
- Consume a balanced diet
- Before using some beauty treatments, read carefully the labels
- Avoid extreme temperatures on your hair
- Take good care of your hair by brushing, cleaning and conditioning when needed
There is no reason to feel desperate. If you believe that the cause of your hair loss goes further, consult your doctor. Sudden hair loss or hairless patches could be a sign of a medical condition that has to be diagnosed by a physician.
