and the ways to stop it from happening to you.
Discovering that you are starting to experience hair loss and/or thinning can be worrying and stressful, but you are not alone. Let's pinpoint the main issues that could be behind your own hair loss and to discover the best methods to avoid and counteract the problem.
Overuse of hot styling tools, such as your hair dryer, curling wand, and straighteners, can make your hair dry, prone to breakage, and consequently more likely to fall out, especially if you use them every day. This is because when too much strong, dry heat is applied to the hair it weakens the hair shaft. Dry, frizzy hair caused by heat damage can also become more difficult to style, yet tackling this side effect (as many of us do) by using our hot tools even more often, will only exacerbate rather than solve the issue.
SOLUTION: CONTROL THE HEAT
"I highly recommend everyone uses heated hair tools that have a temperature gauge, so you can lower it. This will cause less stress to the hair shaft. While avoiding going over the same section of hair with a temperature-controlled pair of straighteners or curling iron can help minimize the damage too. You should also double the protection by using a heat defence product and towel dry your hair gently but thoroughly before picking up your tools to minimize the time spent using them.
