Peladophobia and the fear!

buzzoole code


Other than losing all of my teeth, there is one other fear that I have - losing my hair. For many of us, our hair is something that defines us, for some of us it is a way to stand out from the crowd and for most it is their pride and glory, regardless of colour, length or style.

There are of course many reasons why our hair might fall out more than normal - stress, post-pregnancy, menopause, over-styling, poor nutrition, hereditary genes and age can all impact on the health of your hair and its growth. But all is not lost, there are ways in which we can try to help prevent hair loss.

1. Having your Scalp Massaged - Have you ever noticed that when you visit a hair salon, you are often asked, when conditioner or a conditioning treatment is applied, whether or not you would like a head massage? Well not only is a head massage good for relaxing, but by activating and stimulating blood circulation it channels more nutrients to the roots of your hair to give the best starting conditions for every individual hair.

2. Hair transplants - Many celebrities have had hair transplants - think Wayne Rooney and Sir Elton John. At Harley Street they use the FUE Hair Transplant method which is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure so you will remain fully conscious the whole time. Recovery time is short and the risk of complications is low.


3. Looking after your locks - One walk along the hair care section in Boots will leave you with more products than you can think of when it comes ensuring you can find everything you need. I use Coconut Oil on my hair and scalp which is said to help strengthen hair growth right from the roots to the tip as well as helping with moisturisation, which for me is something I need as I often have a dry scalp.

4. You are what you eat - You hair consists of keratin, a protein which is made up of amino acids. In order to encourage new hair to grow, your body needs to produce these amino acids: high-protein diets are therefore great for your hair, so make sure that you are including to your diet ingredients like eggs, meats and even dairy products like yogurt. Besides proteins, it is very important to remember that beauty is a reflection of what you eat, so be sure to stick to an overall healthy diet.

5. Managing your stress - Stress is a known factor when it comes to hair loss. Whether it is physical or emotional stress, it has an impact on our hair. The most obvious answer would be to try and avoid stressful situations, something that isn't always possible. So instead, try and find little ways to relax which helps to calm you down, for me, if it is work related, I often go for a walk to the local park and feed the squirrels, if it is anything home related, then out come the cleaning products or I run a bath, fill it with bubbles and escape from life for an hour or two.

Now I am only touching the tip of the iceberg with suggestions when it comes to preventing hair loss - healthy diets, shampoos, regular hair washing, wide toothed hair combs and even meditation are all said to help.

What would you do?

  3. I used to have thick hair when I was younger but a very dodgy perm ruined my hair and even though I followed all the rules of how to look after the perm once the hairdresser finished my hair still ended up all matted. It took 3 hours, scissors and tears to fix it my hair has never been the same since

  4. I know a few women in this position and I know it's really hard. All your tips sound extremely sensible - I think it must be very hard to suffer hairloss, and even worse if you're female as it's more unusual.

  5. Like most women, I love my hair and I hate the thought of ever losing it. You see so many brave women voluntarily sacrifice their hair to raise money for charity. They are amazing. I don't think I could do it.

  6. I'm actually trialling a laser therapy for post-partum hair loss at the moment. It's called Theradome. Three months in, I think it is working!

  7. I hadn't actually ever considered hair loss much before as I have a lot of thick hair but your post really made me think. I always try to massage my own scalp when I wash my hair and also just naturally do some of the other things you mentioned. Great tips though! Thanks!

  8. I have really think hair which is lucky as I also suffer from anemia and when it gets bad like this month my hair falls out. I have a halo of new growth at the front!

  9. Oh my gosh losing my hair (and teeth) are my biggest fears! I think avoiding over-washing and over processing your hair is a huuuge part of it.
