How do you prevent and treat hair loss in women? nyc new york ny

Female hair loss is rarely talked about. While Jude Law, Prince William, Ben Affleck's bald spots have all been papped, can you imagine what would happen if the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out with a combover?

Hair loss in women can be the result of a variety of things, including stress, poor diet, hormonal fluctuations and harsh hair treatments, such as bleaching or chemical straightening. And it can be devastating for the woman involved.

"For women, there is a social stigma attached to going bald," she says. "Hair loss can affect your sensuality and how you perceive yourself."

How women can stop and treat hair loss

1. Invest in good quality hair products

 Regular scalp massage can also help to increase blood flow and circulation which in turn helps to increase hair growth. Use your fingertips for a few minutes when conditioning your hair.

2. Maintain a healthy lifestyle
 "Eating well, exercising and getting a decent kip are key for sustaining luscious locks." 

Try foods with a high biotin content, such as oats, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and brown rice.

3. Take a supplement

Take a supplement to boost your scalp health. Both seaweed and Vitamin B are known to increase hair growth and prevent hair loss. 

4. Watch your extensions

If you have extensions, be careful with them, warns Bjornsson. "Not maintaining your extensions properly can damage the hair follicles leading to thinning and in some case bald patches." He also advises against excessive heat styling and bleaching, which can harm your hair.

5. Seek help

At the low-cost end, try cosmetics and styling aids to help temporarily disguise hair loss. "For a more permanent option, see a doctor about Mesotherapy or PRP treatment," he adds.
