Natural shedding versus thinning
Let’s start with the basics – how do you know if you are experiencing hair loss or normal shedding? We all lose an average of around 100 strands daily, which is part of the natural hair growth cycle. Consistently losing more than that is a sign that something is amiss. Other red flags include a reduction in overall volume and the inability to grow hair past a certain length.
The right daily grooming routine can go a long way to keeping hair healthy and reducing your risk of hair loss. Start by choosing shampoo, conditioner and other products that are tailored to your hair type. For example, people with dry hair should opt for hydrating formulas, while those with thinning hair will benefit from products which have a volumising effect. When it comes to styling, be aware of that high temperatures and chemicals can cause damage to the strands and minimal use is recommended. Tightly fixed styles, heavy hairpieces and accessories that put the follicles under strain should also be used with care.
You can give your follicles a helping hand by using hair growth-boosting treatments such as PRP Therapy and LLLT. PRP is a clinical treatment which uses injections of platelets, extracted from your blood. Regular sessions have been proven to improve hair density as well as overall condition. LLLT, on the other hand, is an at-home treatment which requires you to wear a cap-like device which contains laser lights. The light waves stimulate the follicles and enhance hair growth with just 7 minutes of treatment per day.
