Our self-image can be suddenly altered through sudden hair loss. Hair loss can occur after chemotherapy, illness, shock or trauma, or as part of the natural ageing process. It is often of importance to us that we continue to look like ourselves.
GENERAL CHECK-UP DOCTOR
There are options to treat hair loss. Get a general check-up with your Doctor to see if there are any underlying medical conditions contributing to hair loss such as thyroid, fibromyalgia, diabetes, kidney problems, menopause, Zinc deficiency, Vitamin D deficiency. Do not try to diagnose yourself - get expert diagnosis and advice.
In some cases hair loss can be treated with a hair solution that helps to regrow your hair. Speak to your Doctor, Pharmacist and Hairdresser for advice.
Small hairpieces can be custom made to suit a specific bald area such as the front receding hairline, the crown or other bald patches such as from burn scars or surgery.
Camouflage for small patches and thinning hair such as a concealing cream or powder matched to your hair colour can be used to camouflage the area. If the thinning is extreme, a lightweight fine density wig is a good option.
The creative use of make up and accessories can camouflage some of the side-effects of hair loss, such as eye make-up to give the illusion of eyelashes and eyebrows.
