It’s hard to listen to your hair sometimes. Many of us have a rather love/hate relationship with that mop on top. And unlike a dog pawing at the door, our hair’s cries for help can sometimes be both subtle and delayed. You don’t have to be a hair whisperer to hear what your hair is trying to tell you, however. You just need to know the signs. And no, hair loss is not usually the best or clearest sign that something is wrong. Solutions are pretty easy to come by, however. Food for thought? Try food for hair! Some foods contain all the right nutrients for a healthy head of hair, while others will lead directly to more hair problems.
Did you know that hair has three stages to its growth cycle? Here’s what you need to know about the growth cycle and how these stages relate to hair loss.
Adulting is hard work. Unfortunately, life, much like a pleading child or a hungry kitten, demands that you pay attention to it. Right. Now. So you do, day in and day out. What you probably don’t realize is that all of that work brings with it some bad habits, all of which are affecting you in ways you might not realize. Perhaps one of the worst ways adult life is kicking you in the gut rather hard right now is with your hairline. You may be bearding like a champion, but hairlines follow their own rules. Too bad their rules involve a cowardly retreat.
While you have probably been told since you were a child to shampoo your hair, what you likely haven’t heard is a decisive answer as to which shampoo to use. With so many shampoo varieties available, deciding the best one for your hair can be a challenge. That is why we put together this guide for finding the right shampoo for your hair type.
Just as there are many different types of hair, there are as many kinds of homemade hair masks and reasons why you should try them. As long as you have the right ingredients in your kitchen, it’s possible to create a hair mask to resolve the issues you have been struggling with. While there are countless products on the market that claim to repair or regrow hair, most contain chemicals that you can’t pronounce and it can be difficult to decide which product to choose. For those reasons and many others, homemade hair masks have grown in popularity.
While dandruff is harmless, it is a condition that can be a source of embarrassment for men and women. The white flakes on the scalp that fall on the shoulders of the sufferer can make for socially awkward moments, not to mention the itchy, red scalp and fungal odor that accompanies dandruff. Here is why dandruff occurs and potential ways to reduce it.
Beautiful hair has always been a bit of a human obsession. Every culture throughout history has recognized the difference a well-kept head of hair can make on one’s physical presence and self-esteem. But damaged hair? That’s a bit of a nightmare for pretty much anyone. And as durable as hair tends to be, it can get damaged in a surprising number of ways. Chemical damage, physical damage from over brushing or using other hair tools, heat damage (especially from curling irons), and damage due to dry hair are all too common. Even good genetics won’t make you immune to the various ways your hair’s health can fall by the wayside. Thankfully, finding methods to solve each and every issue has never been easier.
Who do you normally turn to when your body stops doing what it’s supposed to do? A hospital? A private practicing physician? A specialist? The complexity of the human body results in a preponderance of doctors who specialize in everything about us, from head to toe. But when the main concern is seemingly cosmetic, such as hair loss, you might be a bit hesitant to see a professional. However, most of your hair problems do not exist in a vacuum; they’re often skin and diet related.
Hair loss might seem too trivial for professionals, but it is a topic of intense scientific research. That’s where researchers such as Dr. Antonella Tosti and Dr. Brijesh Patel come in.
Here’s a question for you. Feel free not to answer it: How many hairs did you lose in this shower this morning? One? Two? Twenty? Even if it was only a small number, you’re probably feeling like it might as well be a million. Especially if it’s happening every day. While so many of us are freaking out about grey hair, we’re far too often ignoring the more insidious problem that comes with getting just a bit older: hair loss. The primary factor in hair loss is your genetics (thanks, mom and dad). You have no control over that. But there are a lot of things you could be doing wrong that might be making it worse than it really needs to be. What if we told you not all hair loss is related to simply growing older? Believe it or not, your shampoo could be the real traitor here. Legitimate hair loss products could be the solution.
