Hair loss: it is essential to take control – fast!
The major problem with dealing with hair loss is sufferers often do not deal with the condition until it has really taken hold. We don’t pay enough attention to those extra hairs in the plughole when we should do. Usually we are very good at deluding ourselves that there isn’t a problem at all – we can just turn a blind eye.
Difficult to spot
However, the fact is hair loss is not always easy to spot anyway. Because it is so gradual, the mirror image we see every morning may not differ a great deal from the day before. That receding hairline inches its way back very surreptitiously until a friend calls the alert or a comb flies too easily through our hair.
Even when it is clear that hair loss is on the agenda, nothing is done. There is a tendency to think – how can I cover this up? what is the best way to mask it or hide it? So we pay a fortune on hats, and spend ages in front of the mirror combing out the bald area. Meanwhile, the condition continues to get worse.
Weird ideas, prevention and cure
Eventually, when we are balder than we want to be, we search for more vigorous ways to hide it. So we start surfing the net for all those weird ideas like dying your head black with a spray, toupees and wigs. The silly thing is we rarely consider the real options that are out there for prevention and cure.
If you are someone who takes great pride in your appearance and hence, your hair, you will pay close attention to its care. As well as using the right conditioners and shampoos, you will monitor loss of hair on a regular basis.
First comes preventative measures
As well as caring for your hair you will know that caring for your body has a direct effect on how strong your hair is. For instance, a good diet is much more likely to lead to good hair growth and stout hair follicles. Reducing stress means your body is more robust and is able to replenish itself – in turn leading to healthy hair. You should always be careful not to keep your hair in restrictive hairstyles (such as dreadlocks, cornrows, pony tails etc.) as this can cause too much strain on the hair follicles.
Medication and advice
So by thinking early about the care of your hair and your body is great for prevention. Medications are available such as propecia which can combat hair loss. There are also a myriad types of hair loss which need different approaches, so as soon as you suspect there is a problem, visit your GP or your hair stylist for further advice. Don’t leave it too late.
And the good news is, if all else fails there is a treatment that hides hair loss brilliantly. Scalp micro pigmentation uses the pigments of a tattoo on a shaven head to mimic the growing hair follicles and original hairline of the sufferer. So this is a win-win situation, at the end of treatment you have a very fashionable shaven head style and it appears that you also have no hair loss condition. Now that’s pretty cool!
Scalp Micro Pigmentation offers a great service for people struggling with hair loss or who just want to join the bald fashion trend and look their very best. Trained practitioners apply pigments to the scalp so it appears as if you have a full head of hair – but cut fashionably short.
