In your 20s, everyone praises you about your luscious locks. But you take that for granted by straightening, braiding, perming and even bleaching it – not once, twice but thrice.
In your 30s, you stop receiving compliments about your hair. You start spending more time getting hair out of your hair brush.
In your 40s, you start examining your scalp more closely in the mirror.
Ladies, we feel you.
But take heart to know that everyone – regardless of age – experiences hair shedding to a certain degree. We lose about 80 strands of hair every day.
So there’s nothing hair-raising about seeing a couple of strands of hair strewn over pillowcases, the floor and in the shower. If you do, however, begin to lose more hair than usual or if you notice that your hair isn’t growing back the way it should, it might be a cause for concern.
It is difficult to pinpoint the exact cause for thinning hair as hair fall can be triggered by a myriad of reasons. Genes, stress, poor nutrition, hormonal changes and environmental pollutants are just some of the possible factors behind those panicking hair strands in the brush.
Now that you know what triggers hair loss, here are some tips to prevent and deal with thinning hair to regain your crowning glory.
