What to Do When Your Hair Falls Out?

Hair loss is never easy, especially if you are a healthy person. Many factors can contribute to hair loss, from hereditary genetic factors to health-related conditions. If you are noticing that your hair is starting to thin, talk to a specialist today.

Seeking support – both from your loved ones and professionals – can be the first positive step in regaining your confidence and addressing any underlying condition.

Don’t Leave It Too Late

If you are noticing your hair thinning or falling out in large clumps, seek help straight away. A hair specialist can determine what is causing the hair loss and they will recommend the best treatment. Even if the issue is only minor, it is best to get on top of it early before it becomes worse.

Take Note of Everything

Is there a history of female pattern baldness in your family? If so, when did it begin? How long have you been noticing the hair loss? Have you had any surgery that’s left scarring?

You need to keep note of all possible hereditary and medical issues that may be causing your hair loss. This will help your specialist in determining the cause of the condition.

Book an Appointment

If your hair loss is causing you angst, book in an appointment immediately. Beverly May Hair will book you in at the earliest convenience and our consultants will extensively examine your hair and scalp. Together, we can determine what is causing your hair loss.

If the hair loss has been as a result of cancer treatment, we’ll discuss your options for covering your scalp and re-growing your natural hair.

Change Your Habits

Something as simple as changing your diet and exercising more can have a big impact on your overall wellbeing. Stress is a big contributor to hair loss, and often we need to take time out for ourselves to rest.

If your hair loss is caused by these factors, you may need to consult with specialists on diet and nutrition. If a change in lifestyle isn’t helping with your hair loss, the condition may need to be further examined.

After you lose your hair, it’s important to adjust your scalp care habits. Your newly exposed scalp may be extra-sensitive, so remember to:

  • Avoid soaps, perfumes and lotions during radiotherapy (check your with your treatment team for specifics)
  • Use a perfume-free moisturiser
  • Shampoo your scalp daily
  • Ensure your pillows are made from natural fibres
  • Protect your head from weather extremes – wear a hat or a beanie more often
