Medical Conditions and Thinning Hair

7_30_584x279

Many take great pride in their hair, and why shouldn’t they? It can be an expression of personal style, an ego booster, and, many times, an important component of people’s identities. This is why dealing with thinning hair — especially a sudden onset brought on by a medical condition — can be nothing short of devastating. Fortunately, there are steps to take if you’re faced with such a battle.

Pregnancy

Post-pregnancy hair loss generally falls under the diagnosis of telogen effluvium, a condition that pushes strands from their growing phase into a resting phase prematurely, causing hair to fall out. Nearly half of all women will experience hair loss post-pregnancy, but in most cases, the changes are temporary and will improve with time. Women looking for quick relief can find volumizing benefits in Thicker Fuller Hair’s Instantly Thick Serum, which boosts volume while providing texture to tresses, or Thicker Fuller Hair’s Weightless Volumizing Hairspray, which gives hair lift, while also leaving locks strong and shiny.

Illness

A wide variety of illnesses and their treatments can cause hair to thin. Thyroid imbalances, lupus and anemia are just a few of the common ailments that result in thinning hair for many. Chemotherapy, a treatment for most cancers, is also known to result in hair loss for most patients. Additionally, the chronic stress associated with life altering illnesses may also lead to thinning hair.

After receiving the proper medical care to overcome the illness and adhering to counseling or relaxation techniques to fight stress, try Thicker Fuller Hair’s Thinning Hair Treatment as part of a daily routine. After a three-month independent clinical study where participants applied Marine Flora Complex daily, 80% perceived the appearance of less hair loss, stronger, more vital, thicker and more voluminous hair.

Allergies

Many people have sensitive skin. While this is often most associated with the face, it also applies to the scalp. These allergies are generally accompanied by a handful of symptoms in addition to thinning hair, including itching, redness, tingling and dull pain. They are most likely to pop up in the spring and summer seasons. Take notice of them over an extended period of time by writing down symptoms in a journal to discuss in detail with your dermatologist. Swap out household cleaners and laundry detergents for fragrance free items and avoid harsh products that may come into contact with your skin, such as nail polish or bleach. Use gentle soaps and natural shampoos and conditioners. Thicker Fuller Hair’s Revitalizing Shampoo and Weightless Conditioner incorporate natural ingredients like Pure Plant Extracts, Caffeine Energizers and Marine Flora Complex, which are great for sensitive scalps.
