Losing Your Hair? - Don't Panic!

When anyone notices their hair thinning or falling out it can cause a great deal of stress and worry and as our world becomes more and more focused on how people look; it can be an extremely scary time to speak up about any problems.

Although there is a lot of research going into male and female pattern baldness often sufferers are left wondering what they can do to cope with it until their remedy is foun

Firstly it is important to go to a doctor as soon as hair loss/thinning is discovered, this will help speed up the diagnosis and the solution. Often changing the stigma about hair loss would be the best way to move forward but until then following some helpful tips can help you cope.

A main aspect of any issue is remembering you are not alone. This could be done through a quick search on Google and reading a plethora of stories into how other people cope or were diagnosed which will help you learn that is isn’t so uncommon after all.

Support groups are a great way to meet those who share your condition and they will remind you that others have the same problem. By talking to them and sharing experiences you may learn that there are little tips and techniques you haven’t tried and vice versa. If you’d rather go online and share stories there are many online discussion forums out there for men and women.

Talking about it to your friends and family can be a great coping mechanism too. No matter how hard you ignore baldness, it will not go away like that and trying to accept it can be the best way to move forward.

Many people feel more comfortable by covering up their hair loss with hats, wigs, scarves or even make-up and lots of different tutorials are out there which can help you create a style that you’re completely comfortable with. If that isn’t for you there are many different supplements that can be taken which promote healthy hair, including protein, zinc, vitamin B and iron.

Although it will take time, one of the best ways to treat hair loss is with patience. Hair goes through a three year growth cycle which includes three phases: a growing phase, transition phase and resting phase. That cycle can be disrupted by a variety of health or lifestyle conditions leading to a reduced growth phase and a prolonged resting phase which means less time is spent on growing thick, healthy hair.

There are many different types of treatments out there from hair transplants to discreet tablets and shampoos. A product that is easy to slip into any lifestyle is Nourkrin, who specialise in hair growth supplements which are formulated to nourish hair and is rich in nutrients such as vitamin A, B1, B2, B3 and C.
