Worried that your hair might be starting to fall out? Here are just a few ways to deal with hair loss.

Find the cause

Hair loss can occur for a variety of reasons. It can be genetic but it can also occur as a reaction to stress, illness or certain lifestyle choices. Hair loss is most common in older age but it can also affect a lot of people when they’re younger. Alopecia and thyroid disease are two common causes of premature hair loss. Chemotherapy as a result of cancer treatment is also a common cause of hair loss. Once you know the exact cause, it can become easier to find a solution – whether it’s upping certain nutrients or finding a way of disguising the hair loss. It could be worth speaking to a doctor if you are unsure of the cause.

Change up your diet

Changing your diet could help to prevent hair loss in certain cases and could even help to reverse thinning. A diet rich in protein has been linked to a lower risk of hair loss. Protein-rich foods include eggs, beans, meat and fish. Complex carbohydrates as found in dried fruit and wheat crackers can also help your hair’s health. 

Take supplements

There are supplements on the market that can help with hair regrowth. A few examples include iron, vitamin C, zinc and vitamin d3. These could be worth trying if you’ve noticed the first signs of hair loss. There are also shampoos and ointments that you can try to nourish your hair and prevent thinning. 

Look into other solutions

Certain forms of hair loss may not be curable, but there may still be ways of living with hair loss. Wigs can be a way of disguising you hair loss – by visiting a wig shop, you can find the best suited wig for you. If you’ve only just started to initially get hair loss or are experiencing thinning in certain areas, there may even be ways of styling your hair to hide it. Embracing hair loss is also an option – it’s even become stylish for women to have a shaved head.

Don’t panic!

1 in 3 of us – including both men and women – suffer from hair loss in our lifetimes. It’s not something to worry about, especially as there are so many solutions out there. Besides, stress could make hair loss worse in the case of conditions like alopecia. While hair loss can sometimes be a symptom of other underlying issues, in most cases it’s nothing serious.
