Mar 28, 2008
Long, lustrous and shiny hair is every womans dream. And not without reason! Undoubtedly, flowing, healthy hair augments the beauty of women and can change the appearance of the countenance manifold. It is unfortunate that hair loss can happen to anyone and at any age. But all is not lost because there are many things that you can do to ensure that you do not loose a lot of hair.

The first thing to know is that feeling humiliated about your hair loss issue and trying to hide away from it shall not help you in any way. Nor will the problem just go away of you ignore it enough. Using expensive body building hair products and covering your head with a scarf or hat may actually harm the health of the hair.

The next thing to understand is the specific reason that is causing hair fall in your particular case. There are many underlying reasons due to which one may experience hair loss and the treatment for each is different. Knowing the root cause (pun unintended) can actually help in deciding the exact treatment that will be best suited to your case.

The first of these causes for hair loss is age. As a woman grows her chemistry undergoes a substantial change and due to these changes cause by menopause, there are hormonal changes that occur. These hormonal changes can cause hair to fall in abundance to what you may have experienced earlier. The only way that you can treat this issue is by visiting a doctor who may prescribe certain hormones to you to reduce or stop hair loss.

Even though age is one of the major reasons for hair loss, younger women may also experience this issue. Many women tend to loose hair while they are pregnant. But the important thing to note is that it is a temporary phase and that the hair loss stops after childbirth. In fact, many women profess to have better and more lustrous hair after delivery than they had before they got pregnant.

The third and increasingly becoming more prominent reason for hair loss is stress. Most women today experience a lot of stress due to the pressures of work like accompanied with the task of bringing up children and managing the home. It has been seen that worry is a significant contributor to increase in hair loss. De-stressing is the only way out. In such a case one needs to look for external support from family, friends and relative to reduce the daily tensions that one faces.

Hair loss can also be hereditary in nature. Women, whose mothers lose their hair early in life, tend to follow similar patterns. Unfortunately, one cannot do much about this kind of hair loss since the genes dictate hair loss in this case.

Even though loosing hair is a problem many of us face and it is extremely frustrating to see your lovely hair fall, we need not fret about it since in most cases there are treatments that can be undertaken. We just need to identify the cause of the hair fall and seek adequate help to reduce or stop the damage.
