Check with your doctor
Sometimes hair loss can be a result of a poor diet, or even undetected anaemia in some cases. If you’re anaemic, your lack of iron could be causing your hair to fall out more than it should be. Your doctor could prescribe iron supplements or perhaps refer you to a diet professional.
If your hair has already begun to fall out and you need to camouflage it, there are definitely things you can do! Changing the direction of your part is one of the easiest things. For example, if your hair tends to part down the middle, flip it all to the left or right. It’s really easy and will make your hair look a lot more voluminous than it actually is. You could even get a haircut – it sounds crazy but cutting more of it off will make it look fuller. Shorter haircuts are generally kinder on thinning hair, as long dos can tend to separate and reveal your sparse scalp.
Treat your hair well
The best way to keep your hair from falling out is to protect what’s left of it – treat it nicely and it’ll stick around! There are quite a few things you can try – such as giving yourself (or getting someone else to give you) a nice scalp massage before you shampoo your hair. Rubbing hair oils into you hair when it’s damp is also a good way to keep it nice, healthy and on your head. Hair treatments definitely come in handy here.
Don’t kill what’s left
As well as treating it, there are other things you can do to prevent the hair that’s left from dying and falling out as well. Stay away from heat styling products – and if you must use them, apply heat protective spray thoroughly to your hair. Brush less and with caution – preferably use a wide-tooth comb. Don’t wash your hair too often as you don’t want to strip it of its natural oils.
Your hair is your crowning glory, the last thing you want is for it to fall out. So if it has started to be sure to follow these steps and you should notice a considerable difference in the rate of hair loss!
