What is the Source of Your Hair Loss?
No matter the culprit, we can all agree that hair loss is concerning for anyone and a major blow to our self-esteem. It can be overwhelming when turning to the internet for answers and the list of products can seem endless. From oils and scalp treatments, top rated vitamin gummies, and even red-light therapy helmets, it can be hard to nail down the best treatment option.
For those not sure where to start, it is best to begin by consulting your stylist. Often, they will ask of major life changes or new sources of stress, both common causes of hair loss. While stress is a natural part of life, only made worse by a pandemic entering its third year, it is also manageable. Your stylist has the knowledge and expertise to direct you to the right products that can get you started on your hair growth journey. However, if your hair loss was significant and abrupt, it would be best to consult with a medical professional as well. They will be able to run proper tests in order to rule out any underlying health conditions that may be to blame.
Some common products recommended at our salon for hair loss are the Viviscal PRO Advanced Hair Health Vitamins and the Evolis hair tonics. Viviscal Pro Vitamins, formulated with the exclusive marine complex AminoMar, help promote existing hair growth from within. The Evolis Reverse Activator is a scalp and hair follicle tonic containing a high concentration of quality plant extracts that help reverse thinning hair. With daily use, the Evolis Prevent Activator contains similar ingredients to the Reverse Activator and helps to preserve the hair that you currently have. Evolis Promote Activator is a scalp and hair follicle tonic that increases hair length and improves the quality and health of your hair overall.
Hair loss is a medical condition like any other, and it is time that we acknowledge it as such. Let us remove the stigma and have an open dialogue with our stylists and doctors. If the past few years have taught us anything, it is that we must take care of ourselves and advocate for our best health. The sooner we address the problem, the sooner we can get the answers and treatment we deserve.
