HAIR LOSS SCARE


This is a problem encountered mostly by the male species, but that does not mean we ladies are free from such worry.

Most men reaching mid to late 30's start to see balding spots. They fuss already on what haircut to do for cover-up. The best solution for some is if you can't have some, have none at all. Skin head! For ladies, they lose hair at a much later age. Between 50's to 60's, I notice. And it is getting more prevalent these days than centuries ago.

The reason for the balding? Either it is hereditary, calcium loss, or too much exposure to sun, hot water showers and hair products. For hereditary, we have no choice over it. Too bad our ancestors decided to leave us with such to inherit than gold. Calcium loss needs to be replaced like during pregnancy and lactation where we lose a lot to our infant's needs. Intake of rich sources of calcium like milk and milk products should be ensured. Too much sun exposure also is a reason that we can avoid by wearing hats but not overly long as is the craze this decade. "Let the hair breathe" as hair experts say. It is also being noticed that those who live in countries with cold climates have higher rates of people taking hot showers thus higher rates of balding heads. Personally, at times that I cannot tolerate the cold, I use the heater but not directly to my hair. I just mix a little to a tub to take off the chill and not as warm as the one I use for my body. More like "burning" it with too much heat. The same goes for hair products, the more you use the more you burn your hair. The rationale why centuries ago balding heads are not as common as today's. They do not have products like what we have today...we have thousands of them!

Love your hair, after all it's your crowning glory!

My hair gets thinner the older I get. It's hereditary, my grandmother had almost no hair in her 70s :(
