Tips for Combatting Female Hair Loss

Tips for Combatting Female Hair Loss

Female pattern baldness is an issue that many women deal with throughout their life. Many factors can lead to this from alopecia to thyroid problems. No matter what the issue may be, there are a few ways to combat female pattern baldness.

Here are a few tips to help:

Avoid hairstyles that create tension on the scalp.

While you may love a high ponytail or a slick backed bun, keep in mind that over time these hairstyles can contribute to hair loss. The tension these hairstyles create around the hairline and the crown of your head will result in more strands falling out. Scrunchies or hair elastics also pull out your hair. Have you noticed that once you take your hair out of a ponytail, there are a few strands wrapped around the scrunchie? If you do decide to wear a hair tie, check out these silk scrunchies, designed to be gentle on hair, and reduce breakage.

Limit chemical usage

Chemically treating your hair with perms, bleaching, or hair dyes can permanently change your hair’s texture. This can weaken your strands, making them dryer and brittle, which leads to breakage. If you are interested in chemically processing your hair in some way, it is always best to go to a professional stylist.

Change your diet

While you can try topical products to help restore your locks, one of the best ways is to start within. Examine your diet and try to incorporate healthier foods. Limit your sugar intake. Foods like bread, pasta, and potatoes break down into sugars and are known to shrink hair follicles. Incorporating leafy greens and foods rich in vitamin C, vitamin B, and protein can help reduce hair loss.

Pay attention to your body

As stated before, many factors contribute to hair loss. Before you try to create your own treatment plan, consult your physician to be sure there is no underlying cause.
