If you suffer from hair loss, always make sure you speak to your doctor first as there could be an underlying medical condition that is causing it. Your doctor will be able to assess the issue, find out the cause and suggest an appropriate treatment plan for you.
The sad thing is, there never was as much attention placed on shiny, healthy hair. This is just my personal opinion. I feel like times have changed now and the concept of having glossy, healthy, shiny hair that you can sway around proudly and wear as a beauty asset is impressed upon us women these days. Dealing with hair loss can be very depressing and upsetting, given the attention people and the media place on hair these days. However, luckily, there are also a lot of new products and technology out there that we can turn to.
Possible reasons for female hair loss
- Underlying medical condition (thyroid disorders, anemia, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) etc
- Physical stress
- Dramatic weight loss
Depending on each individual case, your doctor could suggest you using Rogaine for hair loss and hair regrowth. Usually, Rogaine is applied and rubbed on your scalp two times a day and is typically recognised as an effective solution for women related baldness. What Rogaine does is to inhibit the hormone DHT that is responsible for destroying and killing hair follicles, causing balding.
If the cause of your hair loss is an underlying medical condition such as thyroid dysfunction, liver disease, or even cancer, then the treatment will be more pronounced and aggressive, targeting the underlying condition instead of the surface problem of hair loss.
Other possible treatments for female hair loss could include herbal remedies. Some women seek to strengthen their hair through home made remedies such as hair oil massage (we recommend these ones – click to read over 3500+ reviews on Amazon) , indian gooseberry, fenugreek, onion juice, aloe vera, licorice root. These home made remedies can help to stimulate your hair growth and help your natural hair to re grow.
We do not recommend treatments that have harsh chemicals in them. There’s already a lot of bad chemicals that our skin and hair are exposed to every day and there are a lot of more natural solutions out there without adding on to the problem.
Ensuring that you consume foods high in vitamins and minerals can help to improve your hair loss problem as well. Being deficient in certain vitamins and minerals can cause hair loss. We recommend asking your doctor to order a blood test for yourself if you think you could be lacking in a certain vitamin or mineral. Once you are able to pin point a specific problem together with your doctor, you will be able to take a multi vitamin or herbal supplement to help with your problem.
