Experiencing hair loss or thinning: who should you run to?

I know it seems that you should run straight to your hairstylist if you begin to experience hair thinning or hair loss, truth is, we should not be the first person you should run to.

Hair loss/thinning may be caused by something internal. Your hairstylist is typically equipped to help you resolve external hair issues, like breakage in the hair shaft, chemical damage, hair dehydration, etc. If you are experiencing hair thinning or loss this is usually an internal issue that it is causing it and you need to seek medical attention from your primary care doctor and/or a dermatologist to get to the root cause of it.

Hair loss and thinning can be cause by many things, some internal and some external. Some of the issues may be permanent or temporary. Here are some causes of hair loss/thinning:

  • Poor hairstyling habits, like tight hairstyles such as ponytails and hair extensions.

  • Poor nutrition

  • Poor hair hygiene, such as going prolonged periods without properly cleansing the scalp to remove it of debris that could block the pores and clog the hair follicles.

  • Medications

  • Underlying health conditions

  • Aging
