Did you know that we can lose between 50 and 100 hairs a day, often without even noticing?
Personally my hair is (and always has been) very thick and does seem to shed a lot – especially since having kids and at times when I am very anxious or stressed! Whilst it is quite annoying for Nathan to always find longish blonde hairs everywhere and to have the plug constantly blocking up, it isn’t anything I have ever really worried about. My hair does seem somewhat thinner nearer to the front, but with all the kids I’ve had, the stress I have faced in recent years, and the bleach I periodically get put through is it really any wonder? I am surprised my hair isn’t any worse off!
No, for me thankfully it isn’t anything that causes me stress or upset and, as my hair is thick and I am reasonably good at styling it, I almost feel like I can spare a few hairs to be lost each day and have it slightly thinner near the front – it isn’t a problem!!
For some people however (and you may well be one of them) hair loss IS a real problem and can cause feelings of low self esteem and even embarrassment. Baldness is something we tend to associate with men and as Nathan and I and our friends are becoming well aware of, this is something that is becoming more and more apparent the older we all get (sorry guys!). But hair loss also can (and does) affect many women too and whether male or female, and whether expecting it or not, losing hair can be stressful, upsetting and perhaps even scary!
There are many reasons for hair loss – Stress, illness, Iron deficiency, cancer treatment and then age and genetics too. For some of these, there are medicines available via the GP and over time your body can replenish itself and your hair will grow back. For some individuals however their hair loss isn’t so easily resolved and so what is their answer?
Well you could embrace it – baldness often runs in family and with time you may be fine about it, but for many women and some men, this can be an awkward stage of life – especially if baldness is unexpected or seemingly premature!
Hair transplants therefore offer an opportunity for some to be able to have hair follicles grafted back and produce for them excellent results to rid themselves of balding/bald patches! And, if your hair loss is bothering you, this certainly may be something you want to seriously consider. Whilst here in the UK this can be a pricey affair, there are places all around the world where it can be done more budget friendly! Turkey is one of these places and could be a great option for combining a holiday and a life changing procedure in one (you really would return a new and improved you!).
