The Dos and Don’ts of Dealing with Hair Loss

Dealing with the sudden onset of hair loss can be both alarming and stressful. You may worry about whether it’s related to a health condition, or spend all of your time researching the benefits of shampoos and treatments designed to reverse the problem. First things first: Stressing won’t help, and may make you feel worse. Remember that it’s not an uncommon problem, either—the American Hair Loss Association estimates that women account for approximately 40% of sufferers in the United States.

So what can you do about the problem? It’s important to understand the root cause of the problem. Temporary loss may be due to illness or medication, and might resolve with time. Excessive loss of hair, however, could be due to a specific medical condition known as alopecia. Only a doctor can properly diagnose this and provide you with a solution. That said, there are things that you can do—and avoid—to help the situation. Here’s what you should know.

DO:

Treat your hair gently using products that are formulated to stimulate hair growth. A sulfate-free formula, such as Toppik Hair Building Shampoo, not only enhances volume but also protects color-treated strands from fading. Use it regularly to see results. To build on your results, try Toppik Hair Fattener , a leave-in conditioner that is formulated to plump the hair shaft and leave your mane softer and more manageable.

 

Adjust your diet as needed. There’s a reason behind the old “you are what you eat” adage, after all. Protein-rich foods are essential, because they promote strength and encourage keratin production. Salmon and avocado are both excellent additions that add a nutritious boost to any diet. Low levels of iron and vitamin D2 may also be to blame for your hair loss. A blood test can confirm that, but in the meantime you can bulk up on spinach, eggs, and cheese to see a difference. Try: Bosley Supplement for Women – 60 count

DON’T:

 

 

Spending all your time stressing out can be truly detrimental to your physical and emotional health. In fact, it could be part of the reason your hair is suddenly shedding. Of course, it’s hard to simply cut your anxiety—but you can embrace a few self-care habits to reduce those feelings. Try meditating at night before bed, for example, or go for a peaceful walk to clear your mind. It’s the little things that count, and they all add up to a happier and healthier you.

 

Overstyling your hair can also be problematic in the long run. While it’s tempting to experiment with styles in an effort to minimize the appearance of hair loss, all that fussing might actually weaken your strands further. Keep it simple by using Wet Brush Detangle Professional to smooth out your strands in the shower and avoid the unnecessary tugging and tangling that usually happens when you’re styling.

How to Protect Your Hair During the Summer

Just as you slather on the sunscreen during summer, you need to be sure that your hair is protected, too. There are several ways to ensure that your strands stay in shape no matter how much heat and humidity comes their way. Here’s how to accomplish that while ensuring that every day is a great hair day.

Cover It Up

Occasionally a heat wave rolls through and makes it impossible to manage your hair. Use this opportunity to add a few chic hats to your wardrobe. They’ll protect your mane from dryness—and as a bonus, you’ll also shield your skin from damaging ultraviolet rays.

Use UV Protection

It’s just as important to protect your hair from ultraviolet rays as it is your skin. Overexposure to the sun can lead to dryness, brittle strands, and even fading color. A product such as TIGI Bed Head Beach Freak Moisturizing Detangler Spray ($12.99) contains a potent UV complex that is formulated to filter out those potentially harmful rays that might cause your hair to look less than healthy. It also includes seaweed extract, which is enriched with protein to strengthen and prevent dryness.

Prevent Chlorine Overexposure

You can spend as much time in the pool as you desire—that’s the beauty of summer, after all. But all that time splashing around comes at a price for your mane. Take the time to protect it from chlorine, which can cause extreme dryness and, in some cases, even cause your strands to turn green. A little bit of conditioner is all you need. Simply apply a dime-sized amount to damp hair, comb through, and throw your hair in a bun. Try Bain de Terre Meadow Balancing Conditioner ($11.99)—it’s safe for daily use, smells great, and is suitable for all hair types.

Protect from Overheating

If you’re a slave to your hairdryer and flat iron throughout the year, it’s important to do one of two things. Either take a break f
rom using those tools completely—usually easier said than done—or protect your hair from the effects of heat styling. Try Hot Sexy Hair Prep Me 450° Heat Protection Blow Dry Primer ($12.99), which helps reduce breakage and minimize brittle strands. Bonus: It leaves hair ultra smooth and silky!

Get Your Wave On

Although it’s tempting to throw your hair up in a topknot or ponytail every day of the week, there are styles that you can achieve without heat. By adding Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray ($29.99) to your routine, you can rock an amazing look that channels a tropical vibe. A little spritz from top to bottom on wet hair is all you need to style your mane. Finger comb it through for best results and try not to touch—you’ll love the natural, super-soft wave that results.

 

 

How to Nourish Color-Treated Hair

If your hair is color treated, you’re probably familiar with the many frustrations that accompany the fine art of maintaining that color for as long as possible. If you’re like the majority, it probably starts to fade far more quickly than you’d like. Maybe it just doesn’t look as fresh as you’d like it to be. In either case, there are ways to remedy the situation. We’ve got all of the products you need to revamp your locks and give your color-treated hair the attention it deserves.

Use the Right Shampoo

Shampoos formulated for color-treated hair are gentle enough to cleanse without stripping your locks of the hue. We love Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Shampoo ($10.99), an industry standard that many appreciate for its mild lather and shine-boosting properties. Remember, too, that not everyone needs to shampoo every single day. If you can stretch those days out, you can help prolong your color even more.

Use a Color Depositing Product

Some genius brands have added color-depositing shampoos and enriching conditioners to their lines. These are designed to keep your hair bright and lively longer than if you would have used basic shampoos and conditioners. John Masters Organics Color Enriching Conditioner ($20.99) is available in shades for black, brown, and blonde hair and they are all designed to refresh color while restoring shine to lackluster manes.

 

Use a Targeted Treatment

We don’t all have the same hair type, and in today’s versatile beauty world there’s a product for everyone. Bosley Defense Treatment for Color ($22.99) is one such example; it’s designed to give thinning hair a livelier appearance while protecting hair color. What better way to knock two problems out in one step? You’ll enjoy more voluminous hair with better-looking color.

 

Use a Curl Enhancer

Curly hair alone requires some extra TLC that normal strands don’t need. Curly Sexy Hair Color Safe Defining Conditioner ($9.99) is a smart choice if your hair is both wildly curly and color treated. It not only protects your color from fading early but also helps tame frizz and uncontrolled strands. The result is a sleeker finish that won’t weigh down your hair, so your curls will still look fresh and bouncy.

 

Use a Deep Treatment

There are treatments available for every possible type of hair situation, including fading color. At least once a week, massage CHI Ionic Color Protector Leave-In Treatment Masque ($13.99) into your hair and let it do its thing. Infused with a nourishing complex that soaks strands with moisture while locking in color, it will leave your hair smoother and softer without leaving behind any telltale buildup.

How to Have the Best Hair During Steamy Weather

Baby, it’s hot outside. While we can’t help but have a full-fledged love affair with rising temperatures and sunny skies, we also can’t stop thinking about the little side effects that conveniently come with being a warm-weather aficionado. Unfortunately, the more time you spend outside, the more likely it is that your hair will soak up the humidity, resulting in a frizzy, fuzzy mess. How best to cope? We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite products that are guaranteed to tame your hair throughout spring and summer.

Cleanse with…

Exposure to sunlight, chlorine, and salt water can do a number on your hair. A deeply hydrating cleanser, such as Joico Moisture Recovery Shampoo ($13.99), drenches hair with nourishing and smoothing ingredients to restore strength and moisture. It’s just as important to use a product that effectively removes product and mineral buildup, like Bio Ionic Agave Clarifying Shampoo ($25). Using it gives your hair a fresh start by cleansing your scalp and strands and preparing it for anything from styling treatments to salt water.

 

Condition with…

 Warm weather calls for a conditioner that blocks out humidity while protecting parched strands from further damage. Rusk Deep Shine Smooth Keratin Care Smoothing Conditioner ($11.99) leaves your hair soft, shiny, and more capable of standing up to even the harshest elements. That’s important if you plan to spend lots of time at the beach or the pool! Once or twice a week, treat your hair to Agadir Argan Oil Moisture Masque ($18.99). It’s a heavy-duty treatment enriched with a strengthening combination of argan oil, vitamin E, keratin protein, and antioxidants.

Control with…

Frizz is one of warm weather’s main hair woes. A product like John Masters Organics Dry Hair Nourishment & Defrizzer ($18.99) is ideal. It’s made with 100 percent organic plant and essential oils, including moisturizing jojoba, healing lavender, and shine-boosting rosemary, all of which work together to smooth out stubborn frizz. You can also use it to prevent split ends. If you’re headed out and need to maintain that sexy updo, spritz on some Big Sexy Hair Weather Proof Humidity Resistant Spray ($16.99) to lock in your style and prevent coarseness and frizz.

 

Protect with…

 One of the best things you can do for your locks when it’s hot outside is simply to protect it. TIGI Bed Head Beach Bound Protection Spray ($12.99) works wonders if you plan to get soaked in salt water. It’s made with sunflower seed oil and grapefruit extract to protect your hair from heat (both sun and styling), and even contains a UV protectant to combat those harsh and harmful rays. Use it throughout the season to enjoy stronger, more resilient hair. For everyday use, nothing tops John Masters Organics Sea Mist Sea Salt Spray with Lavender ($15.99). It smells fabulous, soothes the scalp, adds volume, and lends your hair that enviable beach-babe look we all covet.
