Hair Loss Uncovered — What Are The Signs And When Should You Be Worried?
2nd February 2022
Losing hair is often nothing to worry about. We tend to lose between 50 – 100 hairs each day, and our hair cycle works continuously to naturally replenish our follicles.
But when should we be concerned?
Some signs of excessive hair loss include the following:
- Gradual thinning of the hair
- A bald spot that grows slowly
- Receding hairline
- Widening parting
- A noticeably thinner ponytail
If you seem to be experiencing a higher amount of hair loss than normal, it may be worth exploring if it could be due to a lifestyle or behavioural issue. There are multiple things that can impact the cycle of your hair growth, causing a temporary reduction of quantity or thickness.
Consider if any of the following may have had an impact:
- You’ve changed or restricted your diet
- You’ve gone through a period of stress
- You’ve been wearing your hair in tighter hairstyles
- You’ve experienced anything that might impact your hormone levels
If any of the above may be the cause of the increased hair loss, simply addressing these things should help restore your usual hair growth cycle.
If addressing these things doesn’t seem to be having any change to your hair, it may be worth consulting a doctor or specialist and considering treatment.
There are a whole host of treatments to consider — each depending on the cause, the level of hair loss and the preferences of the individual.
