Realising that you're losing your hair can be stressful. If your father and your grandfather went bald, you may think that baldness is a card that you’ve been dealt and there’s nothing that you can do about it, but that isn’t true.
There’s a lot you can do when you are losing hair, and we are going to share with you the first five steps you should take when suffering from hair loss.
5 Steps To Take
1. Compare new and old photos
Hair loss is a gradual process so sometimes it can be hard to tell just how much hair you’ve lost. Compare recent photos to old ones to see how much your hairline has receded and how much thinning has happened on top and at the crown.
Passport renewal is normally a big surprise for anyone who is losing hair. Comparing a new passport photo to the one in your passport from 5 to 10 years previous can be a bit of a shock. Seeing the extent of your hair loss may help you to decide if you want to take action and find a solution.
2. Try a new hair style
A fresh hairstyle that cleverly camouflages a receding hairline or thinning hair can take years off your appearance. Styling your hair differently can be a short term “fix” but hair will continue to fall and eventually there may be nothing left to style.
3. Weigh up the impact on self confidence
If styling your hair differently isn’t enough, or if you spend a considerable amount of time fussing with your hair to try and disguise the severity of thinning, think about the impact it’s having on your life and on your self-esteem and confidence. If you are still feeling stressed, or if your hair loss is impacting your confidence, then it’s time to consider how to solve your concern.
4. Consider a hair restoration solution
If losing your hair is having a negative impact on your life, it may be time to consider your options. There are medications which can help prevent further loss, there are hair pieces with varying degrees of effectiveness, PRP therapy to encourage follicle growth, and there are hair transplants that offer a permanent solution.
