How to tell if you're losing too much hair and what to do

How do I know if I have too much hair? One of the things that we care about women is that we have hair, not in vain there are so many cosmetic products to avoid it.

Fortunately, we are the least affected by hair loss, only 20% of patients diagnosed with alopecia are women, however, that 20% suffer from this frustrating and depressing loss situation.

How to tell if you're losing too much hair and what to do
According to a survey, people experience a negative feeling against hair loss. This study also showed that the average age in Europe in which hair begins to fall progressively is at age 27 and is attributed mainly to two factors: heredity and stress.

Dr. Manuel Camacho commented that in addition to these factors there are others such as poor diet, lack of care, sun exposure, dyes, excessive heat use, etc. Causes are common knowledge for all but how do you know that this condition has already become a problem? How many are too many hairs lost?

Hair is a living part of our body and dermatologists are responsible for treating it. The hair goes through 3 phases: growth, latency (lasting from 5 to 6 years) and rest. Every time a hair falls, a new one should come out of the same follicle. Then humans change their hair in an average of 8 to 10 years.

During all this time it is normal for many hairs to fall, on average, we lose 80 to 100 hairs each day without representing a problem of alopecia. 80 strands in a universe of 100 thousand are nothing.

To find out if we have a problem of hair loss, Dr. Camacho introduced us the excellent technique of the milestone: Take a lock of hair with your index finger and thumb, a large tuft, as if they were to pull the hair to a companion of Elementary School. Give a soft but firm pull, it should not be the pain, but it should be felt. If on the pull detached more than 4 hairs have a fall problem. If less than 4 are released, we are fine.

Special cares

Girls, in men baldness, is irreversible so we can change some habits to take care of our hair and prevent it from falling.

A great tip that Dr. Camacho gave us is to use natural products in our hair, as natural as possible. How to know if it is natural? The less color and smell the purer the product is. The cosmetic industry has many formulas that work perfectly to avoid the fall, just look for the shampoo and conditioner that fewer chemicals contain in your formula.

Another sure tip: Avoid using heat as much as possible. And, if we have to use it, do it properly: tumble dryer 10 centimeters away and iron it as little as possible.

If we are going to subject our hair to a very aggressive treatment, we should let it rest between one and another. That is, if we paint it, fill it or iron it permanently, we must give it an opportunity to recover as we would with any other part of our body.

Now, Dr. Camacho assures that nothing happens if we wash it daily and that the use of hot water (at a reasonable temperature, other than a bath for chickens) does not affect the subject of the fall. In fact, recommends that if we have greasy hair, we wash it every day to help cleanse the fat it produces.

What to do when it is already a problem?

If the hair pulled lots of hair and you feel that you leave half the mane on the pillow and brush, there are pharmaceutical options to help in your treatment.

Axis is an over-the-counter product in pharmacies that reduces hair loss by 75%. It can be used by both men and women and is itself a medicine.

It is a hair lotion that should be utilized daily and reports results from the first month of use without side effects. They find it in the leading pharmacies in the country, on the shelf of dermatological treatments.
