Hair growth is directly tied to the way we nourish our bodies. Many times, those who have hair loss have a poor nutrient intake or may not be getting enough of the specific vitamins necessary to encourage healthy hair growth. This can be debilitating and overwhelming. Yet, there are steps that can be taken to improve this. The first is to recognize the underlying cause of the hair loss. Sometimes, it is an eating disorder, a condition in which a person does not eat and digest food in a natural way, often limiting the nutrition he or she gets.
It is not uncommon for your scalp to itch, but when it does, there is an underlying cause for this. If your scalp itches all of the time, that is an important sign not to overlook. There are some situations in which that itchy feeling is more than just an annoyance. In some situations, it can lead to the development of conditions that cause hair loss. If you already have hair loss and your scalp is bothersome like this, it may be time to speak to your doctor about what is behind it.
Many people experience hair loss. It’s important to know that most people shed about 50 to 100 strands of hair every single day. You may not notice this because it doesn’t usually happen in large clumps. However, you still are losing hair here and there throughout the day. Some people may see more than normal hair loss. This is when it is important to learn the reason behind it. Sometimes, it may be related to just the normal hair growth cycle. However, in some people, a stressful event is all it takes to create a situation where you lose far more than 100 strands per day. This is important to recognize and treat.
Are you experiencing hair loss? If so, you may be wondering why. In many situations, we never really learn why this type of hair loss occurs. However, when there is a reason, there may be a way you can fix it. For example, for those with high levels of stress that cause imbalances of hormones, fixing that hormone balance by reducing stress can improve hair growth. That is not the case when it comes to genetics, though. Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, is one of those factors that is harder to control. Here is what you need to know about it.
Have you noticed the texture of your hair is a bit different now? There are many factors that can play a role in why this happens. However, one of the most common, and yet often overlooked reasons, is surgery. If you had any type of major surgery, you may notice that your hair does not feel the same. It may provide you with some key insight into why your hair has changed by looking at the things that have happened to you recently. Here’s a closer look at why surgery plays a role.
Hair shedding is a term used to describe the process of hair falling out. If you brush through your hair, you may notice a larger amount than normal of hair coming out. This can be instantly worrying for many. Keep in mind that it is common for people to shed between 50 and 100 strands of hair every single day. If your hair loss is more than this, it may be time to consider why. There are many instances in which you do not have to worry – and it may even be normal for you to experience this right now.
You may know the importance of having sun protection on your skin. It is critically important even if you are outside only for a short period of time each day. Yet, you may not be putting enough attention on your hair and your scalp. The sun’s rays can do just as much damage to these areas as it can do to your skin. You may, like many others do, believe that your scalp isn’t impacted by the sun because it is hidden under your hair. That’s not always the case. If you are not taking steps to protect it, the good news is that it can be easier to do than you realize.
There are various reasons why a diet change could cause your hair to thin out or even fall out. When it comes to hair growth, much of the process of how fast it grows and how healthy it is, comes from the nutrients your body is receiving. If your body does not get the nutrients it needs, it is not possible for your hair to grow as well. By that same reasoning, if you change your diet significantly – especially drastically – it may make it very difficult for you to have healthy hair.
