Emma asks:
I have long hair which is quite thick and I also have lots of it! I am really worried as it has started to break off/fall out - a lot more than the 50-60 hairs which seem to be natural hair loss. There has been quite a lot of stress recently (I lost my step father suddenly), I had a minor Op just before Christmas which required anesthetic and I came off my pill This started about 2 months ago, I should also mention that I seem to lose most of my hair when shampooing and conditioning and it does seem to be breaking off as well as just coming out. My big worry is this.. I know that some or all of the above contribute to stress and hair loss however, I am wondering if going back on the pill will help or should I just leave things alone for a couple of months? I am really worried because I can now really notice that my hair is getting thin and I do not want it to go on for too long - should I maybe go to see my GP? Anyway, please HELP as I do not know what to do first or next!!

There are a number of factors which have occurred in your life that could affect the hair loss you are experiencing at the moment. Stress can certainly accelerate the quantity of hair falling out every day, as can the effects of an operation. Any hair loss caused by the operation is of a temporary nature and will soon pass, as will that caused by any stress, as long as the stress is relatively short lived. Make sure that you are eating well and getting good exercise as this is an excellent way of reducing the detrimental effects of stress. As for coming off the Pill, this depends on which pill you were taking, if it was one with relatively high levels of Oestrogen then your hair can suffer for a period of time as your body adjusts to the new level of hormones. You could ask your GP if you are not aware of the oestrogen/progesterone levels. But please bear in mind that the hair loss caused by any of these factors is of a temporary nature and any hair lost will grow back.





Tracey asks:
Please can you explain why my roots go ginger after I bleach the re-growth, my hair is highlighted all over and has just started to go ginger?

Hi Tracey:
There are many causes of why your hair its going ginger - I have tried listing some of them:
a/ if you taking or had taken any medication within the last few months
b/ if you taking any vitamins particularly an iron supplement
c/ the product used could be out of date
d/ the peroxide could it lost the strength through age or even if it has been left open
e/ had not been develop for long enough
f/ you can have some build up in the hair like silicone or sunning
g/ some type or hormonal unbalance like period or pregnancy so body calories are different
h/ poor quality bleach has been used
I hope this helps
Pablo

Hi Liam:
Well that is a difficult task. OK we would need to find out why your hair is thin, it could be genetically in that way then you have very little to do, also you need to know if your hair its falling out, then it could be stress, mechanical or if you could be taking any medicine. I would recommend you have your hair and hair follicles analysed. The best way for that is using a hair numeric analyzer. ...More >
