by | Aug 21, 2022

Many women consider their hair to be a crown on the top of their heads. If your hair is thinning, it can be one of the scariest things you could experience as a woman, no matter your age. If you are losing your hair, I will discuss the reason why this may be happening and hair loss tips to help you regrow it.

Hair loss in your 20’s, 30’s, or 40’s?!

While hair loss can be difficult for men, they can always shave it off and look amazing. It does not work that way for most women.

Harsh Chemicals, My Story

As someone who was subjected to very strong chemical hair relaxers since the age of 9, I know firsthand what extremely harsh chemicals can do to your scalp and your hair.

My hair began thinning over time and became extremely dry, brittle, and broken.

Eventually, I decided to give up the chemicals and go natural and try to salvage the damage I had done for so many years.

However, going natural and cutting back on harsh chemicals did not solve all my problems. I had to start re-nourishing my scalp and caring for my hair every day.

If you suffer from thinning hair, below are some common reasons why you may be experiencing it.

What Could Be Causing Your Hair Loss?

  • Stress– Stress-induced hair loss is called telogen effluvium. Hair loss due to stress can be caused by a single event such as a breakup, divorce, or the death of a loved one. It can also be caused by long-term stress such as working a very stressful job. Stress affects the phases of growth hair growth and you will notice all over-thinning across your entire head growth.
  • Tension/Traction Alopecia- Is caused by putting excessive tension on the scalp. Extremely tight hairstyles such as pony tales, hair extensions, hair relaxers, or the new t Tok craze the “ Clean Girl” look where girls slick their hair back with gel/hair spray and pull it back tightly. If this is done on a continuous basis hair loss can occur due to continued stress on the scalp.
  • Vitamin Deficiency- Vitamin Deficiencies have been known to affect hair growth. When the body does not have the nutrients it needs, it will stop some bodily functions to focus on more important functions in the body.
  • Hormonal Changes- Pregnancy and menopause can cause your hormones to fluctuate which can cause hair loss issues.

Try These Tips To Regrow Your Hair!

Don’t give up hope there are many options to help you regrow your hair. Below are some well-known and some not-so-ordinary tips for you to try:

  • Dermatologist- Make sure you see your dermatologist. Hair growth issues may be due to an infection or an issue with your scalp. Dermatologists can thoroughly look at your scalp or conduct skin tests to determine if there is an issue.
  • Vitamins- The first step in determining if your hair loss issues are due to nutrition would be a blood test. Testing your Iron and vitamin D levels are important tests to take. If you have a vitamin deficiency, your doctor will provide you with supplements to increase those numbers and hopefully get your hair to grow.
  • Minoxidil- This has been around for a very long time. It is a topical solution you apply to your scalp to help with thinning hair. Some people may encounter some irritation to the scalp but it is generally safe. You can obtain this product in most drug stores and it retails for about $ 35. 
  • Red Light Therapy- Red light therapy has been shown in clinical trials to improve hair growth. The red light is focused upon the scalp through the use of a cap of some sort. Many of these light therapy sets can be used in the comfort of your home.
  • Rice Water- Rice water treatments have gone viral. Many women swear by this treatment to regrow their hair. Check out this YouTube post for an idea of what the treatment is all about. Rice water has vitamins and minerals that provide nutrients to your scalp. This may help improve hair growth. Rice water also creates a protective barrier that helps keep hair from breaking.
