We live in the age when hair loss, unfortunately, became one of the most popular hair problems. As a professional, you have to understand why a client is losing hair, as it can help you to offer him useful solutions.
According to the 2016 HAIR+ Research Study, 75% of male clients and 81% of female clients are worried about hair loss.
You will be the first person with whom your clients will share their concerns. They not just want to receive a consultation on how to stop the hair loss, they also want to know why this is happening to them. You can’t give a piece of advice on how to fight hair loss until you educate yourself on the different reasons why people lose hair. Attend different seminars and courses.
What are the most popular reasons for hair loss?
Genetics and aging: heredity can be called the most common reason for hair thinning and hair loss. You probably heard of male-pattern baldness. Men start losing their hair at the temples and the hair keeps on falling out, thus the remaining hair looks like an ‘M’ shape.
Overall health condition: The overall health condition greatly affects hair thinning and hair loss. Among the common health issues leading to hair loss are physical stress, emotional stress, excessive use of Vitamin A, dramatic weight loss, lack of protein, or Vitamin B.
Besides, don’t forget that hair loss can indicate some super serious medical conditions:
- Alopecia areata.
- Polycystic ovary syndrome.
If you feel that the situation is very serious, recommend your client to visit the doctor!
