My hair appears to be thinning… 😒

    I have noticed that my hair appears to be thinning. I am a woman in my late 40s. I have always had really nice hair. I have been told this, even by my hair salon (Tony Shamas Hair & Laser Salon btw). I am really concerned and upset by this!

    Ugh, girl. So sorry to hear this. It is a tough thing to go through. I remember when my brother started to lose his hair years ago. I know how much it bothered him.

    I hope I don’t say anything insensitive. Believe me, I don’t mean to, but unfortunately, sometimes, these things happen for any number of reasons. As we get older, this can happen. It could also be genetics. On the other hand, it could be temporary, perhaps due to stress, medication or hormones.

    I would suggest you see a doctor first. Some people try this, that and the other in the hopes of turning it around. Rather than going through various trial-and-error methods, why don’t you see a doctor and have yourself tested? See if there is any deficiency. Perhaps you are on some medication that could explain this.

    This is probably the best way to find out. If there’s some kind of cause, you can formulate a plan to get your hair back.

    Do all that you can do for now. In other words, keep doing the right things. So, keep your hair clean and wash it whenever you have to.

    I am sure the salon you go to can help you with advice on this. Listen to them. They normally know what they are talking about. They may not be doctors, but they can give you useful ideas.

    Having said that, many salons may also use chemicals, so talk to them about alternative choices for yourself. As you know, these chemicals don’t help. Not only is it bad for hair, but it does not do your scalp any favours either.

    Perhaps a chemical is now beginning to affect you. It can be frustrating and time-consuming to find the reason, I will admit. Just keep doing your part by keeping your hair and scalp clean.

    You can try massaging it with certain oils. I read that certain oils can help promote a healthier, thicker head of hair and promote good circulation to your scalp.

    Your hair salon may suggest changing your style so that it makes it look more voluminous. Do you use harsh chemicals? Perhaps this might explain it.

    Sometimes it can affect you after a while even though it might not affect someone else. You know, I read somewhere that someone could eat a certain food for years and have no allergy problems. Then suddenly, they get allergic reactions.

    I believe there are medications that can help. However, I agree with the first post. The first thing is to see a doctor or dermatologist. If all these avenues are exhausted, then you can look at other ways to counter it.

    You also may have to live with it. I hate saying that, but bad stuff catches up with everyone, right? Just try to make the best of it, if it happens to be a genetic thing.
