Experts say that as many as 1 in every 3 women will experience hair loss at some time in their life. In this blog, we take a look at what can be done to avoid it.

What Causes Hair Loss?

There are many reasons why women experience hair loss. Stress, inadequate nutrition and hormonal changes such as pregnancy and the menopause can all interrupt the natural hair growth cycle. Women who habitually wear tight hairstyles or extensions may develop hair loss due to the tension placed on the follicles. Other factors that can be blamed for causing female hair loss are genetics and health conditions, such as thyroid imbalances and auto-immune system disorders.

How to Avoid Hair Loss

Hormonal changes, illness and genetics are unavoidable (but not untreatable) causes of hair loss. However, lifestyle changes can help to prevent other types of hair loss from developing. Managing stress, following a balanced diet and wearing low-tension hairstyles can all be beneficial. There are also several clinically-proven treatments that women can utilise to help keep their hair growth strong and healthy.
