When it comes to thinning hair in women, it can be a difficult journey both physically and emotionally. As females we are raised up to take pride in our hair’s appearance and unfortunately many of us place our worth in it. While every woman is beautiful in unique ways (regardless of hair texture), maintaining a full head of hair can do wonders for self-esteem. Take the steps toward testing some of these home remedies and easy solutions, or consult a medical professional if you still have concerns and find the DIY hair thinning treatment to be ineffective. With today’s modern medicine and continual research, thinning hair is a subject that’s full of hope.
There are many health conditions, particularly skin-related conditions, that causes changes in hormonal balances which in turn lead to hair loss. Make sure you see a doctor regularly for your underlying illnesses and conditions.
Thx Domen for the useful info. Curious to know why you didn’t cover laser therapy as offered by Advanced Hair Studio? Or doesn’t the laser treatment combined with sawpalmtto tabs and minoxodil work? If it does work and you complete the 6 month program, will the growth be reversed if I stop using the products?
Yes! Hairdryers often generate too much heat, which can damage hair overtime. You may want to let your hair dry indoors or in the shade as opposed to in the sun, however, as too much sunlight can also damage your hair.
There is a medicine called Minoxidil that is extensively used for hair loss treatment. It comes in the form of a liquid or foam, which you have to rub on your scalp around two times a day. It helps in the regrowth of hair and also prevents further hair loss. Results can be seen after regular application of the cream for months and not before. A thing to note here is that baldness will resume once you stop using minoxidil. Therefore, it is a life-long commitment to use this medicine for any significant improvements.
Since your hair remains in the telogen phase for several months, your hair loss may not occur immediately after the event that triggered it. This would include physical trauma and severe emotional stressors.
B12 deficiency is usually seen in people who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet. The best food source of B12 is dairy products, egg, fish and meat. But B12 is also said to be found in fermented foods such as yogurt, kefir, homemade pickles, sauerkraut (see why B12 deficiency may cause hair loss)
Not using conditioner can leave to dehydrated hair which becomes brittle and damaged over time. Sally-Anne suggests a lightweight conditioner that contains panthenol and glycerine that moisturise and keep fragile hair strong. We love Bumble & Bumble Seaweed Conditioner.
Green tea contains antioxidants which prevent hair loss and boost hair growth. Apply warm green tea (two bags brewed in one cup of water) on your scalp and leave this mixture on for an hour and then rinse.
Minoxidil definitely has an effect in most men, Cotsarelis agrees. It is not something a bald person would use, but someone starting to go bald would use it. The goal is to the hair you have.
