If your hair has been looking a little thin lately, you might be looking for a way to help it grow. Hair thinning and hair loss are more common than you might think, with most people failing to notice their hair loss until half of their hair is gone! Fortunately, if you want to grow your hair back, you have options. Here are some of the ways you can encourage your hair to grow! Avoid Damage Many people stop their hair from growing because they damage it. In order to avoid damage, there are a few different changes you can make to your routine. Avoid heat styling whenever possible, and use heat protectant whenever you do style with heat. Don’t shampoo your hair too often, and always condition your hair when you shampoo.

Women’s Hair Loss: 6 Causes That Might Be To Blame

Women's Hair Loss: 6 Causes That Might Be To Blame Female pattern baldness and thinning hair can be painful, devastating, and hard to handle for most women. One in four women have it. Millions more women suffer female hair loss as a result of alopecia, chemotherapy and other medical treatments. However, women can also experience hair loss from unexpected causes such as excessive styling, birth control, stress and more. Continue reading this blog to learn more about these 6 causes of women's hair loss that may be to blame. Excessive Hairstyling Excessive hair styling and coloring can lead to women's hair loss. Firstly, applying heat on a regular basis such as blow dryers, straighteners and curling irons can severely damage the hair. Therefore, intense heat used on a daily basis can lead to significant hair damage that can ultimately cause hair loss. Additionally, when the hair is over chemically saturated from constant coloring or bleaching, the hair is weakened and easily breaks off at the shaft or root leading to temporary hair loss. The good news is that once the chemical reaction stops, the roots can begin growing again. However, if you were to continue coloring your hair or not seek hair restoration treatment, the damage will continue to worsen. Lastly, hair styling such as tight braids or having your hair tightly pulled back can lead to hair loss. If this happens, you’ll notice gradual hair loss, mostly at the hairline, from chronic pulling of the hair. This is also medically known as traction alopecia. Birth Control According to Healthline, Birth control pills can cause hair loss in women [...]
