Hairstyles That Can Cause Hair Loss

Female Hair Transplant

Hair loss is quite common among both men and women. It can negatively affect your appearance and make you very self-conscious. Did you know that the hairstyle you wear could be contributing to thinning hair? Tightly pulled back hairstyles especially can harm your hair and put you at risk of hair loss. The good news is that you can still have stylish hair without losing your strands. Here are some tips to consider.

Don’t Wear Hairstyles That Pull on Your Hair Very Often

It’s okay to wear tightly pulled back hairstyles every once in a while. If you’re going to a wedding or another special event, go ahead and style your hair this way. However, you should avoid doing this on a daily basis. After a while, these hairstyles can damage your hair follicles and prevent future hair growth. Example of these types of hairstyles include cornrows, tight ponytails, dreadlocks, and tightly braided hair.

Loosen Up Your Hairstyle

It can get boring just wearing your hair down all the time. The good news is that you can wear cool hairstyles without damaging your locks. You just have to loosen up the hairstyle a bit. Loosened braids or a ponytail look just as attractive as tight hairstyles.

Be Cautious When Wearing Extensions

If you don’t have very long or thick hair naturally, you may opt for extensions. While extensions can help add volume and length to your hair, they can damage it in the process. That’s why you should be extra careful when wearing extensions. Wear them for short periods at a time to prevent damage to your hair. If you feel pain in your scalp, you should remove the extensions immediately.

Be Aware of Signs of Hair Loss

If you wear tight hairstyles, you have to be especially aware of the signs of hair loss. Early signs of hair loss include a receding hair loss, broken hair around your forehead and bald patches. If you notice any of these signs, stop wearing these hairstyles immediately.

Hair Transplants for Hair Loss

If you’ve experienced hair loss from wearing tight hairstyles, it may be time to think about a hair transplant. The surgical process involves removing hair from one part of your body and then implanting it back into your scalp. The results look completely natural and can restore your self-confidence. However, keep in mind that it can take up to a year to see the full results of the procedure.

The first thing you should do is to schedule a consultation with a reputable hair transplant surgeon. During the consultation, he or she will explain the procedure further in detail and make sure that you’re a good candidate for it. If you have any questions about the procedure, don’t hesitate to ask.
