Are you trying to tell her about your health? Perhaps. Some diseases and medicines affect your hair. But sometimes you just have to take better care of your hair and scalp. What is a myth and what is a fact? We put it in a row for you.
If you have dandruff, you may feel embarrassed, and also it will also feel it, but dandruff is definitely not harmful to your health. It is best to use an anti-dandruff shampoo. Does not help the shampoo, go to your doctor for advice. If the rose is yellow and greasy, there may be seborrhoeic eczema. This is a scaly skin condition. The skin cells are much faster than usual and dead cells are released into small, dry slices: the flakes.
You lose about 100 hairs per day. This is normal. If you suddenly lose a lot of hair, then there is no need for something serious to happen. A shock – such as surgery, birth, medication, crash diet, stress, or thyroid problem – can cause the hair to remain in the resting phase. After two or three months the hair falls out. It seems then to ‘fall out with bushes at the same time’. Usually, it immediately grows again. If not, go to your doctor for advice. Optionally, nutritional supplements are available to support hair growth from the inside.
With patchy baldness (alopecia areata) your immune system attacks your hair follicles by mistake. This causes sudden hair loss. Most people get one or two bald spots. Sometimes the hair falls out. This type of hair loss is not harmful, but psychologically it is very annoying.
Too much sun changes your hair into a dry and brittle mush. It breaks easily. If you already have thin hair of yourself, then you also risk sunstroke. Haircare products with sunscreen offer some protection. Wearing headgear is recommended.
In extreme cases, a crash diet can cause hair loss. To stay healthy, her protein and iron need as well as omega-3 fatty acids, zinc and vitamin A. Low-calorie diets often miss these substances and can impede hair growth. Often the hair looks dull and lifeless. With this nutrition, you can improve the condition of your hair.
Becoming gray does not always have to do with your age. If you are not yet 40 and you see more than a few gray hairs, this is genetically determined. It does not have to say anything about bad health. However, anemia, thyroid problems, vitamin B12 deficiency, and vitiligo may underlie premature graying.
Press, draw, style
Over-pulling the hair, for example, when making a ponytail or braid, can damage the hair roots and cause the hair to break or fall out. Extra pressure on the hair, for example with hair extensions and hairpieces, sometimes causes hair loss.
Too much styling makes your hair weak. Think of blow-drying or even brushing too often. It damages the outer layer of your hair. If the core of your hair is exposed, it will become dry and dull. Because there is no question of permanent hair damage, it is best to cut your hair.
Some medicines, such as antidepressants, the contraceptive pill, beta-blockers, medicines for gout, arthritis and high blood pressure, cause hair loss. If you stop the medication, hair growth usually comes back. Always ask your doctor about the possible side effects of medication.
