Hair Care - Facts and Techniques You Need to Learn

I started my career as a beautician at seven when I opened my own bedroom salon. I painted nails, braided hair, and I even applied makeup like a pro. You can say that I have always had an interest in beauty, and I naturally attended beauty school immediately after I graduated high school. When the time came to find a job, I started my own salon with a small loan from my mother. I wanted my salon to be special, so I worked with clients to teach them what I knew about hair care techniques. Throughout the years, I have learned that most people know very little about their hair. They believe that the hair needs to be washed every day and they also think that conditioner is enough to treat dry locks. I started this blog so I could educate the public on a larger scale about hair care.

How You and Your Dermatologist Can Fight Female Hair Loss

Beauty & Fashion Blog

It doesn't seem fair that men like Bruce Willis, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Ed Harris look handsome even though they have lost their hair. Yet, have you seen any pictures of beautiful women celebrities who are bald? Probably not often. You are probably thinking that it's totally unfair that you are now experiencing hair loss. Maybe you didn't even notice until your long-time beautician pointed it out. Or you might see more strands of hair on your comb than you used to. Read on for some information that might turn out to save the day.

Things You Can Do Yourself - You might not be able to stop your hair loss, but you can help to keep the hair you have.

  • Try using a soft T-shirt instead of a terry towel when you dry your hair. Better yet, let it air dry.
  • Finger comb your wet hair before you use a comb. Then use a wide-tooth comb.
  • Use a natural bristle brush and brush very gently.
  • When you curl your hair, be very gentle when you remove the curlers.
  • Do you pull your hair back for a tight ponytail? If you do, it might be helpful to find a different hairstyle.

Get Help From A Dermatologist - Maybe you have used a dermatologist before for your problematic skin or to help your teenagers with acne problems. If you don't already have a dermatologist, now is a good time to find one.

  • A dermatologist will probably order lab work to make sure there are no health issues that are causing your hair loss.
  • Obviously, if he or she finds problems, that issue will be addressed. For example, you might need thyroid medication.
  • If there are no health problems that are causing your hair to fall out, a hair growth product will probably be recommended.
  • A product that contains minoxidil will more than likely revitalize hair growth.

The dermatologist will probably have his or her assistant take close-up pictures of your scalp so that they can be compared with pictures after you've used the hair growth product. Be very consistent in using the product, using it as your doctor directs. 

In addition, be very patient. It is very likely that you'll have to use the minoxidil for several months before you see real results. Then you'll see tiny little hairs start to sprout. In about a year, you'll probably see real results. The pictures that were taken at the dermatologist's office will be the proof that your treatment is working.
