Today I’m going to talk to you about a subject that a lot of people (men & women) will benefit from: Hair Loss. Having grown up in Dubai and being in the beauty industry for almost a decade, I have had many women confide their deepest, darkest beauty woes in me. And the most common one, without a doubt, is thinning hair.
While hair naturally starts to thin as we age, there are so many reasons why someone’s hair may start to prematurely thin. And the good news is that there is a solution. But the first thing you need to do is figure out whether your hair is breaking or falling out from its roots. Next time you find hair in your brush, take a look at it. Can you see a little white or black bulb at the end? If you can, that’s the hair bulb, which means the hair is falling out from the root. While this may look scary, you should know that it’s normal for hair to fall on a daily basis; probably losing up to 100 hairs a day. And if there was no bulb, it means that the hair is breaking off. Either way, it’s important to treat it and strengthen it as each scenario has its own remedy.
Hair Breakage – There are many reasons why hair breaks, the most common is a damage from excessive heat styling, coloring or even tension. Luckily, there are lots of things you can do before reaching for the scissors and chopping it all off. Hair is made of proteins and when proteins get too damaged, they breaks off. You can strengthen your hair and temporarily repair it by using protein-packed products. SACHAJUAN Intensive Repair Shampoo contains panthenol that strengthens weak areas and adds shine. Follow this with an intensely repairing hair treatment like Braziliss Express Luminosity Keratin Hair Mask, which is made from keratin, the same substance that your hair is made of. After that, use a leave-in lotion that will treat your hair and prevent any future breakage, I like Dr. Hauschka Neem Hair Lotion because I can directly massage it on my wet hair after the shower.
Hair Loss – It can be incredibly upsetting when you see your hair falling out, and luckily, you have some options you can action on. First, you need to find out what is causing the hair loss; if it is a genetic or hormonal issue, it is best left to a dermatologist or trichologist to decide. Once you’ve narrowed down the reason, it’s time to try out a solution. The first line of defense should involve making sure that your scalp is healthy and happy, this will make sure that your hair follicles get all the nutrients and oxygen they need. Dr. Organic Aloe Vera Shampoo is a gentle shampoo, perfect for frequent use, that keeps your hair soft and hydrated. Once you’ve taken care of your scalp, use a dedicated hair loss treatment like Labo Crescina Complete Treatment. Each box contains both of their proven Re-growth and Anti-Hair Loss treatments. So you can fight hair loss while encouraging new hair to grow. It also comes in three different strengths, so you can choose the best one based on the severity of your hair loss.
