While we know that hair loss can often be caused by factors beyond our control, there are some factors that we do have the ability to control. Watching our diet, managing our stress, and being aware of the hair products we use are all ways women can help combat hair loss. While many women don’t think twice about using different hair products, some are beginning to realize that these products can lead to or help along hair loss. So what hair products should women be careful of using if they fear hair loss may become a problem?
- Dye- While new dyes are being created with moisturizing and conditioning elements, constant use of hair dyes can become damaging to hair. Some of the items ingredients used within hair dyes can cause negative reactions to the scalp and hair follicles, which can lead to hair loss.
- Bleach- Bleach is used for dying the hair by striping the strands of hair of their natural pigmentation. Bleach uses both ammonia and peroxide, which can remove most of the moisture within your hair shafts. When this occurs, hair becomes brittle and can start to thin. If the bleach isn’t applied correctly, hair could even begin to break from the root, which can result in hair loss.
- Heat- When women turn to a product to help them with styling, it is typically a heat based product. Hair dryers flat irons, and curling irons are all frequently used products to help create a hairstyle, but all of that heat can become damaging to the hair. Heat can lead to surface damage to the scalp, dryness, and breakage at the roots of the hair.
- Henna- This natural compound is occasionally used on hair to create a red coloring. If the henna is left on too long, the scalp can become irritated which can lead to hair loss depending on the severity.
