The Battle of the Bulge: All-Over Thinning and More

Picture this: you're pulling your hair back into a ponytail, only to realize that it's getting smaller and smaller with each passing day. Sound familiar? This could be a sign of hormonal hair loss wreaking havoc on your locks. From a widening part to temple hair loss and increased shedding, hormonal imbalances can trigger a myriad of changes that leave you feeling frustrated and defeated. But fear not, because knowledge is power! By recognizing the signs early on, you can take proactive steps to address the underlying hormonal issues and reclaim your full, fabulous hair.


Texture Trouble: Dry, Brittle Hair and Frizzy Frustrations

Ever notice your hair feeling dry, brittle, and downright uncooperative? Hormonal hair loss could be to blame. Changes in hormone levels can wreak havoc on your hair's texture, leaving it feeling parched, lifeless, and prone to frizz. Cowlicks that were once easy to tame suddenly become more noticeable, and those frizzy patches seem to have a mind of their own. But fear not, because there's hope on the horizon! By addressing the hormonal imbalances at the root of the issue and implementing targeted hair care strategies, you can restore moisture, shine, and vitality to your locks, leaving them looking and feeling their best once again.


So what do we do about it? Here are some strategies to address hormonal imbalances and restore your hair's health:


Balanced Nutrition: Fuel your body with nutrient-rich foods that support hormonal balance and hair health. Incorporate plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats into your diet, and consider adding supplements like biotin, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids to support hair growth. Here are some specific foods that will help balance hormones naturally. Wild Blueberries - Avocados - Asparagus - Apples - Spinach - Cucumbers - Black Beans. Many Hair, skin & nail supplements have all these nutrients that are needed for hair & skin, plus natural stress relievers like Ashwagandha. (Please talk to your Dr. before adding supplements)


Stress Management: Chronic stress can wreak havoc on your hormones and contribute to hair loss. Incorporate stress-reducing practices into your daily routine, such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, yoga, or spending time in nature.


Hair Care Routine: Adopt a hair care routine tailored to your hair's needs, including regular washing with lukewarm water, conditioning treatments to nourish and hydrate the hair, and minimizing heat styling and chemical treatments that can damage the hair follicles.


Professional Treatments: Consider seeking professional treatments such as low-level laser therapy, or TED (Trans Epidermal Delivery) treatments to stimulate hair growth and improve the overall health of your scalp and hair. Please see my website & shop for more details.
