Research, an educated hair technician, and a few at-home hair care techniques can help bring your hair back to life.

I’ve never encountered anyone, man or woman, fascinated with the idea of losing their hair. Whether it’s from genetic makeup, chemical over-processing, poor braiding/weaving methods, misusing and mixing products that shouldn’t be combined or just downright stress – hair loss is always a burden.

The first step to reversing/preventing hair loss is to understand what is causing your scalp to thin, bald, or shed excessively.

Causes:

  • Medication
  • Chemotherapy treatments
  • Braiding/weaving hair too tightly
  • Too many chemical treatments in a short period of time (perm, relaxer, bleaching)
  • Poor chemical technique
  • Alopecia
  • Alkaline derivative color

Always discuss, with your doctor and stylist any changes in hair loss or texture, especially when on medication.

Having a qualified professional maintain your hair can reverse the effects of chemical balding. When selecting a stylist be sure they are licensed, ask about their background in the industry, and how often they attend classes to keep up with the newest techniques and products. When maintaining your hair between visits to your professional stylist, make sure to research the products you are using and any adverse effects their ingredients may have.

At-Home Hair Care Tips to Prevent Hair Loss

At-home hair care is also something you want to discuss with your stylist. To help maintain healthy hair; you should:

  • Drink your recommended daily dosage of water;
  • Shampoo and condition with moisturizing hair care products;
  • Massage the scalp daily; and
  • Using a protein based conditioner, once a month.

Although hair loss may be a burden, it is not always permanent. There are measures that can be taken to ensure the re-growth and strengthening of your hair. It takes research and an educated hair technician who is well versed in hair care and proper technique to get your hair back to the glorious state that great maintenance supplies.
