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.

Female Hair Loss and Self-Esteem: Transform Yourself One Day at a Time Cultivate & Meet Friends Our identity is constructed by and large, on how we see ourselves, and even greater impact on your identity is how we think others perceive us.

Start Exercising We all know that getting in better health means we need to get off the couch and exercise more to feel strong and confident. When you start on an exercise routine and stick to it, what you’re telling yourself is that you consider yourself to be important. Remember, start slow. Start with an exercise routine you can handle fairly well. Perhaps start with just 30 minutes a day, once a week and increase from there. If health issues develop and hamper your efforts, adopt a meditation or yoga practice. The mere act of committing yourself to following through will raise your self-esteem. Taking Control of Your Hair Loss Women’s hair restoration has come a very long way in just a short amount of time. Talking to a hair specialist can help you make important decisions if you are considering whether to get a hair system or wig. Women, more than men look to their hair as a big part of their beauty.

Trichotillomania: What Is It & What Can Be Done About It? What is Trichotillomania? What can be done about it? Trichotillomania is probably one of the most misunderstood conditions for those who find themselves affected by it and their family and friends. You pronounce it trick-oh-till-oh-MAY-nee-ah, the long official name is often shortened to Trich (TTM). The disorder is a repetitive behavior of pulling your own hair. Each person with this disorder is different. The location of the hair that is pulled, the extensiveness, disruptiveness of the urges, and the duration all differ. Trichotillomania can involve hair pulling from the scalp, eyebrows, arms, pubic area and legs. This hair pulling can lead to hair being pulled out, causing bald patches to develop on the scalp. For many affected with Trich, they are often unaware that they are pulling their hair and find treatment quite manageable but some find the urges to overwhelming to ignore and they can’t think of any think else. The awareness of trichotillomania is rather new. The classification and definition are still evolving as the experts in the field continue to understand and learn more about Trich, and continue to have discussions about the disorder with other professionals. Trichotillomania is categorized as a BFRB (body focused repetitive behavior). It is a way of approaching the subset of impulse control disorders that are specifically, consistently, and compulsively damaging to one’s body. Things like nail biting and skin picking also fall into this category. The classification recognizes the disorder that resembles habits, addictions, [...]
