Female hair loss is common for a variety of reasons, but especially as women get older and there’s a change in their hormones due to pregnancy, menopause, or other factors. This can be quite embarrassing for many women, especially as society has placed an emphasis on long, thick hair being the female ideal.
So how can you treat hair loss before it really makes an impact on your life? Or better yet, how can you try and prevent hair loss in the first place? We’ve put together this list of a few simple tips, preventative methods or hair loss treatments to give you a place to start if you’re experiencing this issue.
Hair Loss Prevention:
Start with a nutritious diet to make sure you’re getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals to encourage healthy hair growth. Another easy-to-begin preventative method is regular scalp massages, as this helps to remove dandruff and stimulate the hair follicles on the head. Scalp massages can be done on your own or with the help of a hairdresser.
Ensuring you have a good routine of hair loss prevention can minimise the chance of significant hair loss later on in life.
Hair Loss Treatment:
If you’ve already started to lose your hair, you will probably be looking at treatments to regrow or thicken what remains. Popular treatments include regrowth therapies, such as shampoos or other over the counter treatments. It’s important to note that these only work if the hair follicles on the head are still active.
If there is no regrowth, you can try surgical methods such as hair transplant. However, this is a riskier method as there is no guarantee of success, as well as a lengthy recovery time. We always recommend speaking to a professional hair loss specialist before starting any hair loss treatment on your own.
Hair Loss Alternatives:
In some cases, once the hair is gone it can’t be regrown. At Meraki Hair Loss Clinic, we have a range of alternatives such as hair toppers, hair extensions and even wigs to help you look and feel your best. Toppers and extensions can be matched to your existing hair and help to add length or volume to what is already there. Wigs are better for all-over coverage or for women with thin hair that are unable to attach toppers or extensions.
All of our hair growth alternatives are made from the highest quality materials and can be colour-matched and styled to your preference.
