Hair Loss

Posted on: May 22nd, 2015


Normally, we lose about 100 hairs each day – old hairs fall out and are replaced with new ones. But with hair loss, hair thins at a rate that can’t be replaced. Falling hair not replaced by new ones can make a person bald or have bald patches. Hair loss can either be temporary or permanent. Changing hairstyle or shampoos used may ease the problem. But if that doesn’t help, a doctor may prescribe a drug to slow or stop hair loss and to aid hair growth. Hair is healthiest when we eat right, exercise, and protect it from too much sun.

leg waxWhile this blog is dedicated to finding better ways to protect your hair, we know first hand how irritating unwanted hair can be. Sure, we’ll do everything we can to protect our crowning glory, but when it comes to the hair on our armpits, legs, face, and bikini area we’d be more than happy to see the last of it. After all, shaving and plucking out all of that hair can feel like a part-time job with the rate at which they grow back.

If you’re tired of dealing with unwanted hair, you should realize that you have options aside from shaving and plucking. Waxing is a good option, although the hair will still grow back. Still, if you have your hair waxed at a salon, the whole process does not have to be as tedious as shaving; besides your hair will grow back a bit slower and with a finer texture. You can also opt for permanent hair removal which can be done in salons. The process takes several visits though, with the number of visits depending on the type of your hair.

When you see these happen, see a doctor immediately, before it is too late. The doctor may be able to prescribe drugs that could either prevent the condition, perhaps slow it down., or grow new hair. The hair is similar to the other parts of the bodies–one should have a healthy diet, if one wants to keep fit, and that includes your crowing glory–the hair. Also, keep your hair, as much away from the sun.
