Ladies, is your hair falling out, and do you want it to stop or come back and look shiny and healthy? I was there many years ago, and I understand the frustration and feelings that go along with it. My hair falling out affected my mood, how I dressed, my confidence level, and how I felt.
Simply put, hair when we lose hair, it’s a VERY BIG DEAL!
The common causes of hair loss are slow thyroid, hormone imbalance, nutritional deficiencies, autoimmune diseases, weak immune system, toxins, leaky gut, and more. These can prevent hair from growing, bald spots, hair shedding, and hair falling out.
Other reasons for hair falling out: Could you be using too many hair products? Hair Color? Shampoos that dry hair? In the 70s, girls hated to see even a little oil in their hair, so we always used shampoos to dry out our hair; this was a terrible idea. In my 50s, I see that the side effects of all those years treating my hair poorly is having dry hair now. Now I use all-natural products and wash my hair 2-3x a week, or it will get dry again.
What about your stress level? Life has its challenges, and it always does; as things get more complicated for people, it affects the amount of hair we lose. Just the other day, I was in Ulta and talking to a salesgirl, and she said when our country is under stress, they see many people come in looking for help with hair falling out.
One note to hormone imbalance is that blood testing is not always accurate when looking for causes of hair falling out. Saliva testing is more accurate as it tells you what hormones are available and not available in the tissues, and your hair is a tissue.
All these situations can be dealt with naturally.
