Hey Honey Verans! This may be you… woke up ready to start your day and BAM!!! Your pillow has an usual amount of hair on it, or your combing your hair, barely pulling on the comb and there’s a lot of hair coming out. You tried gluing in synthetic hair or you over processed your hair and now your the girl who can no longer wear that one hair style that makes you feel fabulous anymore, because your hair line is receding and you need to hide it in some creative way. This is hair loss and Honey Vera can assist in the regrowth of your hair.
Some of you are still not sure what is causing your hair loss. So here are some reasons from Black Women Beauty Central*:
Alopecia is the number one cause of hair loss in Black and African American women. If you’ve ever seen someone with bald, thin edges or temple hair loss you’ve seen alopecia’s effects.
- Temple hair loss is usually caused by traction alopecia. It happens when hair is pulled too tightly over time and makes patches fall out completely.
- Hormones and Hair Loss
Hormones control every function in our body including how our hair grows and sheds. When they’re out of whack it can cause problems with our hair growth rates and cycles.
- Hormone issues caused by thyroid or estrogen imbalance shorten the growth phase of the hair growth cycle and speeds up the shedding phase. Over time this leads to obvious thinning and bald patches.
- Hereditary Hair Loss
If the women in your family have hair loss issues there’s a chance that you will too. You can’t do anything to prevent genetic hair loss but you can slow it down with the right products and reverse it with hair replacement technology.
- Itchy Scalp and Hair Loss
A healthy scalp is important to growing and maintaining healthy hair. Issues like psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis (the fancy term for eczema) and other itchy scalp conditions can cause hair loss in Black and African American women.
- Illness and Hair Loss
I’ve known a lot of people who’ve suffered with cancer and nothing stands out more than the hair loss they go through after chemotherapy. Being sick and taking certain medications can make your hair fall out. Once you get better or come off the medicine the hair starts to grow back.
- Lack of Vitamin D
Another cause of thinning that’s not as well-known is vitamin d deficiency hair loss. This vitamin affects our hair growth cycle. If there’s not enough in the body the growth phase shortens and the shedding phase gets longer causing hair to thin out.
Can menopause cause hair loss?
Yes, menopause and any other major physical change (e.g. pregnancy) can cause hair loss. It changes the hormonal balance of the body which affects normal hair growth patterns.
Can stress cause hair loss?
Yes it can. I’ve been a victim of this myself. My early college years were a very rough time for me and my hair thinned out a lot over a period of a few months. I was as healthy as a horse otherwise so I know the hair loss was a direct result of my state of mind.
If you’re a super woman who works long hours and juggles taking care of the kids, husband and home, remember to take a well-deserved break for yourself every once in a while.
