Baldness may be caused by a wide array of variables. When you blow-dry your hair frequently, you are making the hair follicles weaker that denotes those hairs are most likely to fall off sooner than later.
A lot of health conditions like thyroid, menopause and even pregnancy may cause a short-term or long-term cycle of hair loss. This is due to the fact that, there is a disproportion in the hormonal cycle and steady fluctuations may lead to loss of hair.
All of the three variables are responsible in worsening hair fall. Stress and anxiety, insufficiency of sleep may impair the hair roots that in turn results in hair growth issues. Even the sunlight harms the hair shaft therefore in case you need to be outdoors excessively, give protection to it by putting on a hat or carrying an umbrella.
Trichologists are going to tell you that extreme application of chemical based materials such as styling gels may set the hair fragile and the heat generated from devices such as curlers may harm the hair from the root system to tip.
Unfortunately, family background is something that is hereditary. However, you may postpone or even reduce its impacts by complying with a healthy and balanced way of life.
Losing approximately around 100 strands of hair each day is considered normal yet spotting a furry ball of hair on your pillow case isn’t. In case you spot that or find way too much on your hairbrush, it is definitely time to work on something about it.
If your answers are predominantly As, it suggests you are most likely to experience or are experiencing hair loss that may result in baldness if any kind of action isn’t made on time.
