  • 5 Hormonal Changes That Can Cause Women’s Hair Loss

    When it comes to women’s hair loss, there are many potential culprits. Some of the leading causes of women’s hair loss boil down to one thing, however—and that’s hormones. Anything that impacts the hormones can ultimately impact hair growth. Sometimes that might mean hair that grows thicker, faster, fuller—but just as often, it means hair that thins, sheds, disappears.

  • Are Your Medications Causing Hair Loss?

    Medications are designed to help repair bodily ailments—but sometimes, they can cause unwanted side effects, in the process. It is not uncommon for these side effects to include the hair.

    What is Alopecia Areata?

    There are many potential causes of hair loss. Some are simple matters of lifestyle—an insufficiency of Vitamin D or just general malnutrition, for instance. Some are external medical factors—chemotherapy, radiation, or the use of powerful narcotics. And still other causes of hair loss are actual disorders of the body. One of the most common is alopecia areata. Maybe you’ve heard the term before—but what is this condition, and how does it contribute to hair loss?

  • Don’t Let Pool Days Wreck Your Hair and Skin

    Summer weather is still going strong, which means that many of us have a few more pool days on the agenda. A dip in cool water can feel wonderfully refreshing on a hot day, yet swimming isn’t without its downsides. Some of the biggest risks of spending time in the pool are potential damage to hair and to skin. Indeed, repeated exposure to chlorine—to say nothing of sunlight or even just water itself—can lead to some problems.

    At LH Hair, Trichology Matters

    What’s the secret to having full, healthy, voluminous hair that lasts a lifetime? The answer is closely tied up with trichology—a sub-field of dermatology that deals with the overall health and wellness of the scalp. Without a healthy scalp, it’s tough to have healthy hair; in fact, scalp diseases and disorders are among the leading causes of hair loss, even though most individuals who have these conditions aren’t even aware of it! Being more proactive about scalp health, can lead to a fuller, more robust head of hair. That’s what trichology is all about—and in turn, it’s what we’re all about here at LH Hair.

  •  Does Emotional Trauma Trigger Hair Loss?

    Stress may be, first and foremost, a mental condition—but we all know that its effects can encompass the physical body, too. If you’ve ever been through a season of intense stress (and surely you have), you know that stress can impact your appetite and your ability to sleep. It can leave you feeling weary and exhausted. It can provoke a headache or an upset stomach. It can even make you more susceptible to sickness and disease.

  • Do You Show Signs of Male Pattern Baldness?

    Men can lose their hair for any number of reasons. Sometimes, the specific cause is pretty easy to determine; if you’re undergoing chemotherapy, or if you’re taking a medication that’s known to cause hair loss, that eliminates the guesswork. In other cases, though, the cause is tougher to determine—yet doing so is an essential step in deciding on the best course of treatment.

    That’s what makes it important to come down for an evaluation from one of our hair care professionals who can help you figure out why you’re losing your hair and what you can do to reverse the process. One thing you’ll definitely talk about with your technician is male pattern baldness—by far the leading cause of male hair loss.

    Indeed, if you know you’re not losing your hair due to chemotherapy or some other medical condition, you might just assume male pattern baldness is the culprit—but how can you be sure?

  • Vitamin D and Your Hair: Everything You Need to Know

    Growing up, you probably heard your mom or dad tell you about the importance of getting enough vitamins—about how vitamins help you grow up to be big, strong, and healthy. Well, that’s as true in adulthood as it is in childhood. Taking the right vitamins is necessary to keep all the parts of your body functioning as intended. And that includes your hair!

    Sadly, many of us don’t quite get the vitamins we need, and the results can be dire. Vitamin D deficiency is especially common. When we don’t get the Vitamin D that we need, it can have a negative impact on our hair follicles, among other things—and that can lead to suboptimal hair health and growth.
