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? Understanding the difference between shedding and hair loss comes down to a few key factors: knowing how much hair is usually lost through the growth and shedding cycle, paying attention to patterns, and self-examination of outside factors that may impact your hair follicles' growth. With the following information, LH Hair aims to help you determine whether you are in need of a hair loss treatment or just a little growth stimulating shampoo.
