Stress related hair loss in women is an increasingly common problem.A
growing number of women in stress-related jobs suffer from thinning
hair.Modern life and high stress levels associated with a fast-moving
lifestyle can have a truly dramatic effect upon hair.Considerable
stress can also be placed on a mother, especially if working, by
the oftenformidable demands of family life.
and Hair Loss
Many parts of the body can suffer the effects of stress, but it
shows very quickly in the hair because the life cycle of the hair
is interrupted, causing it to fall out prematurely.In most cases,
this type of hair loss is temporary and the hair which is lost will
be replaced.The problem is, however, by the time one particular
hair is replaced another two have fallen out, so the overall effect
can be a significant thinning of the hair.
The first rule, if you see excessive hair fall is don’t panic.This
will cause more stress and even more hair to fall!Most people who
can eliminate or reduce the levels of stress will recover the hair
The Tony Maleedy Trichology Hair Loss and Scalp Treatment can be
used to reduce excessive hair loss and encourage good hair growth.
This treatment is a blend of plant extracts and is commonly used
in professional trichology clinics to stabilise hair fall.It is
sprayed onto the scalp once a day, where it has a pleasant cooling
sensation.It should be used for three to six months until the quantity
of hair coming out is back to normal.It would be wise to use the
Trichology Scalp Improvement Shampoo too as this will ensure that
the scalp is healthy and the hair will grow back as quickly as possible.

Hair Drying Tips
Don’t stop moving the dryer. If you do, your hair will overheat
and become damaged.
Don’t use brushes made entirely of plastic because, unless your
hair is very short, you hair will probably end up in knots.
Don’t turn off the dryer until you’re sure the roots are completely
dry.If you hair has cold patches then it is not dry, which means
your style will flop and kings will appear.
