Hair Loss: Top Causes Your Clients May Be Facing
by Progen Probe Admin 0 Comments
StressThe human body reacts to stress, both physical and emotional, in a variety of unseen ways. Maybe your shoulders get tight after a particularly rough day, or you lose weight. Well, when your body is under too much physical stress, whether from an injury or illness, your body may decide to shed more hair at a more frequent pace. If this is the cause, the only thing to help is to heal and give the hair time to grow back.
Too Many Vitamins/Diet
Specifically, too much vitamin A can actually cause hair loss if the body takes in too much of the vitamin on a regular basis. While we’re at it, pay attention to diet. Too little protein can also cause hair to thin and stop growing in order to conserve what protein it gets. Of course, adding more protein to the diet can help stop the hair loss and time will allow it to grow back.
Iron deficiency is pretty prevalent, especially among women, and can lead to anemia. Nearly one in ten women suffers from an iron deficiency, which can cause fatigue, dizziness, cold hands and feet, and—you guessed it—hair loss. Adding more iron to the diet may be all that’s needed to correct the issue.
No, we don’t mean using too many products at once, but rather, a consistent strain on your hair. This can be from too-tight braids, chemical relaxers, and high heat. If stress to your hair and scalp are the cause, you may need to promote nutrient-rich products to help the follicles heal.
