Your resume is updated and pristine, you've picked out the perfect interview outfit, and you're overqualified for the job, but could the state of your hair hurt your chances? Hair loss is common, but if you're on the hunt for a new job, that common issue could have a negative impact.
Unfortunately, hair loss affects first impressions, assumptions about age and hygiene, and is tied to societal stigmas of beauty. Though it is unlikely that thinning hair will be the sole reason you don't get the job, it could be a factor.
Read on, to learn more about the surprising ways hair loss may affect that all-important first impression.
Styling is one thing, but protection is another. In fact, it can be difficult to take proper care of your hair. Perhaps you are using too many heat tools or harmful hair products, without worrying enough about their long-term effects. That's when some women find that they are dealing with hair loss.
Did you know that hair loss is caused by a myriad of factors besides genetics? It's true! Many people assume that hair loss is the result of unfortunate family history, but it turns out there are plenty of day-to-day activities and habits that can result in thinning hair and baldness. Your hair follicles react to the stresses and messes you put your body through, and sometimes that reaction can lead those follicles to shut down. Below, we've compiled the top five bad habits that have the potential to lead to hair loss.
Hair loss is a universal concern that can occur for a variety of reasons, but did you know that beyond genetics and environmental factors there are infection-related causes of hair loss? That's right, certain infections - typically fungal in nature - can contribute to thinning hair and an unhealthy scalp.
At LH Hair we're in the business of providing you with the hair you want, but we also love providing as much information on hair loss prevention as we can. Educating our clients is a role we take very seriously - especially since hair loss has a nasty habit of stemming from environmental and dietary conditions. Today, we'll be taking a look at diet - specifically, the vegan diet.
Over 80 million Americans are experiencing hair loss. Whether it is a chronic condition or a stress-related change, it is important to realize that hair loss is quite common and the scalp should be monitored even before noticeable signs of thinning begin. As with most health-related concerns, early detection of hair loss is the best route to improving treatment effectiveness, preventing further problems, and stimulating optimal reversal conditions. Also, because your hair is an indicator of your overall health, early detection of hair loss may actually help detect underlying health issues.
Hair loss is usually a symptom of a larger issue within your body. Whether it is a result of stress or hormone imbalance, thinning hair is, without question, worrisome. One of the keys to successful treatment is understanding the underlying cause of your hair loss. One major player - believe it or not - is the health of your thyroid.
Thyroid disease can wreak havoc on your hormone levels, creating changes in mood, weight, and energy. Among a host of physical symptoms there is also the potential for hair loss. But how are these connected? And what can you do to treat your thyroid issues as well as stem further loss of hair?
For anyone dealing with long-term dandruff, you know that the commercials for shampoos and treatments usually only cover one-half of the whole experience. While it's true that dry white flakes are problematic and sometimes embarrassing, they're also the least irritating part of handling a scalp that over-produces skin cells. There are, two primary forms of the condition: dry dandruff and oily dandruff, and most people who have the first kind will also experience the second. They are often caused by similar environmental conditions and genetic predisposition but need to be treated separately because of the variation in symptoms and severity.
As you get older it is natural to view a few extra hairs on your pillows with suspicion. Shedding is perfectly normal, but when does too much shedding turn into something worthy of your concern?
