Stress related hair information

Cell-u-plex is the product I’ve used in the vlog, it’s meant to: Encourage healthy hair growth, leave hair thicker and fuller, improve hair texture and not meant to strip hair of essential oils. I bought it from a shop in my town called Boyes for £3.99 each (not £3 like I said in the vlog, I was talking an average price!

Hair loss is common and in the below video I wasn’t able to explain it all correctly! There is excessive hair loss or minor but any hair loss depending to the individual can be an emotionally upsetting time.

Below are five causes of hair loss in men and women:

1. Physical stress – any kind of physical trauma,surgery, a car accident, or a severe illness, even the flu can cause temporary hair loss. This can trigger a type of hair loss called telogen effluvium. Hair has a programmed life cycle: a growth phase, rest phase and shedding phase. Hair loss often becomes noticeable three-to-six months after the trauma. The good news is that hair will start growing back as your body recovers.

2. Hormonal – like post pregnancy, thyroid issues or menopausal.

3.Genetic – Hereditary pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss. Hereditary-pattern baldness is not really a disease, but a natural condition caused by some combination of genetics, hormone levels and the aging process. Almost all men and women will notice hair loss or hair thinning as they age.

4. Disease – Medical conditions that can cause hair loss include thyroid disease, alopecia areata (an autoimmune disease that attacks hair follicles), and scalp infections like ringworm. Diseases that cause scarring, such as lichen planus and some types of lupus, can result in permanent hair loss because of the scarring

5. Chemotherapy – Chemotherapy may cause hair loss all over your body — not just on your scalp. Sometimes your eyelash, eyebrow, armpit, pubic and other body hair also falls out. Some chemotherapy drugs are more likely than others to cause hair loss, and different doses can cause anything from a mere thinning to complete baldness

6. Nutrients – two vitamins that could prevent hair loss. If you’re removing more hair from the drain than usual, you may want to take a closer look at your diet: Having a vitamin D deficiency and low levels of iron could be playing a role in your thinning locks.

May just look like the way it’s parted but it’s where it’s started to become thin. I used to have enough hair for a full fringe and now my forehead resembles an egg! However with each pregnancy it’s thinned due to hormones and I know at times of stress it thins – I’m talking massive chunks out!

Every year it’s got thinner and thinner so it could be a mixture of age and stress related apolecia as it was initially diagnosed at when I was 20. I had several blood tests and no issue was discovered – it’s pretty embarrassing but if others have these issues it’s best to talk. I need to be positive and if that’s what is happening I’ll deal with it – there are decent wigs out there anyway if I go full bald, right?!

  1. I feel this blog. I’m trying to regrow my hair out, Had super long hair until I was 17, cut it all off and had super short hair styles for 6 years… Grew my hair out to just below waist length and cut it all off because I wanted a side shave SOOO bad…
    now, I’m in the process of growing it out again and I’m using different hair care regimens, but I notice after having my hair braided or showering that quite a bit of hair is coming out… Always has. I shed a lot… My hubs say’s it’s making room for more growth…
    I’ve never had an issue with thinning hair, my hair is super thick, super coarse and super heavy… So, the growing out process just scares me because of the amount of hair I’m losing normally just looks so much more when my hair is short
