Losing your hair can seem like quite a big deal, some people will find it quite a stressful and upsetting time. It might seem like the end of the world, and you might think there is nothing you can do, but that isn’t true.
Today we’re telling you five steps you should take when you start to lose your hair.
You might have looked in the mirror one morning and thought to yourself, I’m sure I had more hair than this yesterday? Over time you’ll notice that your hair will begin to thin and your hairline might start to recede, but it can be hard to tell how much hair you’ve already lost.
We think it’s a good idea to have a look through old photographs, this way you can assess how much your hair has receded over the last 5 or 6 years, this will give you an indication to how sever your hair loss is, and if you think you need to take action.
You’ve had a look through your photos and you’ve noticed your hair isn’t as full as it used to be, this isn’t the end of the world and doesn’t mean you need to consider hair restoration treatment straight away.
Style your hair differently for a while, visit your local barber and change things up. Doing something this simple can make your hair look totally different and sometimes a simple hair refresh is all you need.
If your new hairstyle isn’t cutting it for you, consider the impact your hair loss is having on your life. Many of our patients tell us that before their hair transplant they felt self-conscious and felt that their hair was having a negative impact on their social life. If your hair loss isn’t bothering you then it might be worth waiting and reconsidering your situation in a few months.
If your hair loss is having a negative impact on your life it might be time to consider looking into hair restoration treatments. You might feel like you’ve tried all other options such as hair loss medication, hair pieces and now you want something more permanent.
If you think hair restoration treatment is something you’re interested in we recommend that you book a consultation at a hair clinic. During the consultation, you’ll be able to discuss your hair loss with a specialist and then decide what course of action is best for you. You’ll also find this time helpful to ask any questions you may have about hair loss or potential treatments.
Once you’ve had a consultation it’s important not to rush into anything, give yourself time to think about everything and if you then feel that the treatment is right for you, go ahead and contact your chosen clinic to book in for treatment.
