7 Reasons for Female Hair Loss
When was the last time you went in for a massage? A deep, relaxing, spine-tingling (in a good way) massage? If you can remember that glorious feeling, hold it tight. Now, imagine it’s happening just for your scalp. As George Takei might say (you’ll definitely read this in his voice for effect): “Ohhh myyy”!
A well-done massage feels great, there’s just no two ways about it. But scalp massages are just not common enough. While that full-body massage might help you relax both body and soul, a scalp massage for hair loss is the one thing you really need in your life. The stress of work and life, in general, can make a regular massage feel necessary. But it's time to stop ignoring the hair loss which can also come with all of that stress! A scalp massage for hair loss results in faster hair growth and, quite simply put, it’s just a little slice of heaven.

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.

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.
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.
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.
