This would have to be the most frequently asked question in my Perth hair salon; why is my hair falling out?
So exhale if this is happening to you because it is SO common & it usually can be explained by one of these, if this doesn’t give you the answer you seek talk to your GP.
5 Reason’s Why Your Hair Is Falling Out
1. Change of diet?
I once had a client quit coffee after years of drinking several cups every day and half her hair fell out as a result. I regularly see woman trying a new diet, removing carbs or detoxing that also notice huge hair loss.
Why does this happen? I have no idea but my theory is it’s the body’s way of ridding itself of the unwanted toxins or it’s the shock to the system of a such a rapid change. But i’m a hairdresser not a Dr.
Changed your medication or started on something new? Even introducing a new vitamin on a daily basis can cause hair loss.
What can you do about this? Well unless your taking your medication for life threatening illness the hair is more important right? Just kidding! 95% of the time once you’ve finished your intial shedding it will slow down and usually stop altogether and will grow back.
3. Just had a baby?
Yep, approx 3 months after giving birth just when you thought all the pregnancy body weirdness was over your hair will start falling out. By the handful. You will feel like your going bald.
But good news; it will stop. EVENTUALLY! Then you’ll have the fun experience of having it all grow back.
This is the most obvious but it’s def true. If your under pressure or you’ve experienced a major life event your hair will remind you to take some time out.
5. It’s just that time of year?
Yep i firmly believe there are a few times of year when the season’s change that we all just shed more hair than usual. Exactly when this happens i have never bothered to pin down but after 16 years of hair dressing it’s a fact.
How to stop your hair falling out?
Stopping the hair loss is tricky, but these 2 products will certainly assist in speeding up the growing back of the hair:
- Swisse Ultiboost Skin, Hair & Nails – a vitamin that can be purchased from almost every chemist these days. Unlikely it will stop it falling out, it may slow it down but it sure makes it grow back faster.
- Revita Hair Stimulating Shampoo – A cutting edge shampoo that stimulates the growth of new hair.
Have you experienced hair loss from any other reason?
