‘Which Hair Loss Conditions Can Be Prevented?’

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Name: Lois

Question: Are there any hair loss conditions that can be prevented?

BraidsAnswer: Hi, Lois. Absolutely! There are a number of hair loss conditions which can be prevented to a certain degree and one which can be averted entirely.

Traction Alopecia is 100 per cent avoidable as this type of hair loss is entirely self-inflicted with no underlying condition or reason behind it. It is basically an extreme form of styling damage in that it occurs from frequently wearing styles that are too tight and/or too heavy, such as braids, buns and hair extensions.

These hairstyles exert excessive amounts of pressure onto the follicles, damaging them and causing hair breakage as well as shedding in the form of patches around the source of the tension and a receding hairline. Although there is treatment for Traction Alopecia available, avoidance is clearly a better option.

There are a number of triggers for the temporary condition Telogen Effluvium, which displays as thinning hair from all over the scalp, some of which are avoidable. The main trigger it is easy to avoid is dietary deficiencies. If you follow a well-balanced diet packed with the nutrients needed for healthy hair, this should not be a problem. If you are concerned your diet may not be keeping all your nutritional bases covered, a specially-targeted supplement such as Hair Vitalics can help.

Telogen Effluvium is also believed to be able to trigger or exacerbate Male Pattern Baldness and Female Pattern Hair Loss in those who are genetically predisposed to this hereditary condition. So, whilst you cannot stave off genetic hair loss forever, avoiding anything that may bring it on prematurely or make existing thinning worse is definitely a good idea.

Although hereditary hair loss is a progressive condition which will gradually worsen over time, seeking advice from a hair loss specialist at the first signs of thinning can help you to take preventative measures. Personalised hair loss treatment plans, available for both men and women, and featuring clinically-proven products can help to stabilise shedding and promote regrowth.
