Hair Care and Hair Loss Advice for Women’s Hair

Bleaching Your Hair.  Bleaches chemically alter the melanin granule in the middle layer of each hair strand. Despite careful treatment, persistent bleaching eventually damages even healthy, strong hair, but it does not injure the roots from which future growth takes place.

Diet and Hair Loss.  Transition spokespersons have consulted with some of the country’s leading dermatologists.  They have said, “Diet has very little to do with hair loss!” Case studies of World War II concentration camp victims show that while many were starving, there was little if any evidence of permanent hair loss.

Hair Loss Nutritional Analysis Scams.  Various claims are made for the value of analysis of hair samples — measuring its mineral content — as a means of assessing nutritional status or detecting nutritional deficiencies. Reputable studies have concluded that the process has no validity and can be considered one of the many ongoing scams directed at those concerned about loosing their hair.

Sudden Hair Loss: Take it Seriously.  If you have sudden hair loss, you should first check with your family doctor or internist. A dermatologist will treat skin infections that cause hair loss. It may be necessary for you to see an endocrinologist for hormone imbalances, namely androgens.
