Six Steps You Can Take To Slow Or Stop Your Hair Loss Millions of people across the globe suffer from hair loss. Although it may feel like you are alone, you most assuredly are not. There are a myriad of choices available to you to help 'cure' your hair loss, but few of them are clinically proven, and even those treatments that are clinically proven are not one hundred percent effective. While there is no perfect cure for this incredibly common problem, there are steps you can take to help slow or stop your hair loss. Take the following steps in dealing with your hair loss. The first thing you should do is to consult your doctor to ensure that your hair loss is not a side effect of a more serious issue. Once he has ruled out any possible ailments you may be suffering from, you can discuss any possible prescription options for your hair loss. If your doctor is unwilling or unable to prescribe anything for your hair loss, there are still steps you can take. First, you should cease wearing any type of hat. Although you may wish to hide your hair loss by wearing a baseball cap or other form of head gear, this is likely to speed up your hair loss. Secondly, you should get in the habit of washing your hair at the end of each day. This will help eliminate the presence of any chemicals from hair care and hair styling products. When it comes to hair loss, fewer chemicals is best. When you are picking your shampoo, you should do research to find any products that are all natural or are proven not to increase hair loss. If you insist on using conditioner, do the same research you do with shampoo and absolutely do not use any leave in conditioner. In the case of women, or men with long hair, you should avoid pulling your hair back tightly. Putting your hair in a tight bun or in a tight ponytail may end up pulling hair out that was still attached to your head and that probably would not have fallen out under normal circumstances. Aside from the increased hair loss, a ponytail only serves to accentuate a receding hair line. Do not use a hairbrush with soft bristles or with teeth that are too closely packed. Use of these types of brushes are meant to remove loose hair, something you do not want. If possible, style your hair using only your fingers or with a wide toothed hard comb. Hair loss is a very common problem for men and women of all walks of life. Although there are several prescription and over the counter treatments available to you, none of those are one hundred percent effective. Even in the event that you pursue one of these chemical treatments, you can still help the process along by following the tips from this article. Try to remember that although hair loss may change your appearance, it does not change your personality. Good luck. Click Here For More Information
