Tips for managing hair loss
The following are some tips our dermatologists will give you after a hair loss treatment or when you have hair loss.
- Take only medications prescribed by your doctor. Taking some medicines that are not prescribed can cause hair loss. You should not stop taking medicine prescribed by your doctor even if hair loss reappears because stopping them might cause serious side effects. You should talk to the doctor if you think a medicine he prescribed may be causing hair loss and ask him or her if you can take another medicine.
- Practice good hair care. It is surprising to some people that their hairstyle or even the way they wash and dry their hair contributes to their hair loss. You can ask your dermatologist for tips that can prevent your hair from damages.
- Know that hair loss may be temporary: there are so many things that can cause temporary hair loss, these include stress, illness and childbirth. These conditions are referred to as telogen effluvium. The body sheds some hairs during this condition, which will grow again without any help.
- See a dermatologist. You should visit a dermatologist if you begin to notice signs of hair loss so that he can diagnose the cause.
Hair loss can cause low self-esteem and make some women feel unattractive and embarrassed. Treating hair loss makes people feel better. Dermatologists at Clearskin London can offer solutions to help you feel and look your best.
