Do You Have Thinning Hair? Learn More About Possible Causes and Methods Of Prevention


Thinning hair can lead to major hair loss if precautions aren’t taken against it.

Have you been noticing more hair in your hairbrush lately? Does light tampering, styling, and blow drying result in loose strands littering your bathroom sink? If your hair appears dull, doesn’t hold as much volume, or cannot withstand the same amount of toying with, it might be thinning. Hair, for many women, is their most important feature, and hair loss or thinning could negatively affect your self-esteem. To reverse the effect of thinning hair, we’ll take at look at what causes it, how to prevent it, and we’ll provide you with solutions once it’s too late.

What Does Thinning Hair Tell You About Your Body?

Being aware of your body could save you from suffering if maladies are brought to your doctor’s attention early enough. Thinning hair could be the first signals of more severe conditions such as hormonal imbalance, vitamin deficiency, overwhelming stress or poor nutrition. You hair’s general condition can be a telling indicator of bodily health. For example, if you have a Vitamin D deficiency, hair loss is a symptom for the lack of it. Lack of Vitamin D is serious! Your deficiency could be a sign of diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, depression, influenza, or tuberculosis. Thinning hair could also be a sign of hormonal imbalance. Fluctuating hormone levels will cause root detachment from the scalp, and even hair growth in unwanted places. Many women report growth on the upper lip, or chin while hair growth on the head slows. Stress is also a contributing factor to thinning hair. A constant, unrelenting feeling of hyper irritation can be devastating to your scalp if not balanced well. Overworking your body with high stress will create an imbalance to the rest of your body’s system.  Additionally, the overuse of toxic hair products will definitely have it falling out. This puts strain on the root, and it some cases will cause complete detachment from the scalp.

How to Prevent Your Hair From Thinning

Fortunately, there are a number of way you can keep that thick mop atop your head from losing its luster. Learning stress management techniques keeps the mind and body at ease. Those loose strands will thank you as they grow stronger during meditation. Once you’re done with your stress management exercises for the day, detail the ways in which you mistreat your hair on a daily basis. Once you’ve come up with a list, such as brushing too aggressively, shampooing too frequently, using heated styling tools too often, or having chemical treatment administered too often, avoid doing these things! Let your hair rest for a while, and it will stick around. If you fear you’ve got a hormonal imbalance or Vitamin D deficiency, consulting your primary care physician for treatment will help you prevent complete hair loss as well.
