Hair loss confessions and solutions…
Losing your hair is never fun; not for men or women.
Your hair is part of your identity so it’s not an easy thing to lose. It’s what makes you look like who you are. It’s part of how you identify with yourself in the mirror and even how others identify you.
It gives you confidence, makes you feel sexy, attractive and good about yourself. Even if baldness is your thing, it still defines you.
So when my hair started falling out a few years ago, I was in denial.
My hair has been a treasured part of me since I can remember. As a little girl, I loved styling it my own way, and I’ve never had the guts to cut it any shorter than my shoulders because I love my luscious locks.
But for some reason when my typical hair shedding increased, I shrugged it off and made excuses for it…
It was because of the change in seasons
I went too many days without washing my hair
I wasn’t brushing it enough
I was working more and under more stress
You know, the usual things.
I just kept thinking, “if I just give it time, it will stop.”
As the months went by, and my hair continued to clog up the shower drain in larger quantities than I had ever seen before, I started to question what my body might actually be trying to tell me.
Because hair loss might be common, that doesn’t mean it’s normal.
I’ve had countless clients who have experienced hair loss due to thyroid disorders, autoimmune conditions, stress, nutrient deficiencies, and more.
There are many types of hair loss and over 50 root causes, many of which go overlooked by doctors.
Many people facing hair loss suffer in silence, with feelings that can make it difficult to seek help because they are embarrassed or ashamed to admit that they are experiencing hair loss.
But the truth is, hair loss is not a sign of weakness or a lack of self-care…
Some of the most common causes of hair loss are:
- When thyroid hormone T3 is low
- Changes in estrogen and progesterone
- Alopecia (an autoimmune condition) is activated
- Vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies
- An increase in mental, physical or emotional stress
- Toxic exposures such as mold and heavy metals
- Drastic changes to your diet
- Low-quality or toxic hair products
- Poor circulation
The quality of your hair is a measurement of your health.
Telogen Effluvium was the official diagnosis of my hair loss, which is a condition that can be triggered by a variety of things, such as drastic changes in diet, deficiencies, toxins and low-quality hair products.
Thankfully, with the right tools and resources, I was able to turn my hair loss around and get my luscious locks back again.
