Experiencing hair loss as a female can be a distressing and embarrassing condition. Unfortunately, many companies try to capitalize on these feelings by selling useless internet remedies, and over-the-counter gimmicks. The problem is, unless you have your condition checked by a certified professional, there’s no way to know which kind of hair loss, or scalp disorder you may be suffering from.
If you notice thinning or receding hair, the best thing you can do is visit your doctor. They can give you their opinion, and a recommendation on how to proceed. Do not waste your time or money on “quick fix” remedies, or solutions without a consultation.
Time is the critical element.
Once you notice thinning hair, speed and sensible action is critical. Hair loss almost never “spontaneously reverses,” corrective action is required if you want to stop the process once it begins. The number one way to retain a healthy head of hair as long as possible is to seek qualified medical help as soon as you notice an issue.
Natural is not optional, it is essential.
The best way to ensure that your hair remains healthy longer is to use only natural hair care products. Read labels and understand the contents of the things you’re putting in your hair. Most commercial products are loaded with chemicals which often come with serious negative consequences. However you can mitigate their effect by using less, or cutting these chemical-laden products out completely. The adage, “Less is more,” applies a million fold here.
