For those of you who do not know, a hundred new hairs sprout on your head each day and the average person loses 50 to 100 hairs daily. But what happens when you part your hair and notice more hairs on your brush, floor, and clothes? Not all hair loss stories have happy endings. My daughter, in her thirties, noticed less hair than usual falling off of her head. At first, she was pleased and thought it was great that she had such strong hair until a few months later when someone took a picture of her at a party and she noticed how thin her hair had become. She was horrified and believed in her heart that the new prescription drug her dermatologist had prescribed for her acne was causing new hair not to grow. She had no faith in prescription drug and always looked for alternative treatment.
Factors contributing to hair loss include the following:
1 Prescription drugs
2 Fragrant soaps which might cause itching and lead to skin problems
3 Sensitivity to fragrant creams, shampoos and conditioners
4 Over the counter products that can cause health risks
5 Sugar or foods that ferment into sugar
There can be any number of contributing factors and the wisest thing to do is to check with a doctor whether the prescription drugs you are taking is the cause of your sudden hair loss and whether you should change the food you eat. It may be that you need to see a nutritionist for a new way to eat, or to make some lifestyle changes and include some vitamins in your food plan to assist vitamin growth to undamaged hair follicles.
