Cold winter days are over and it’s time to get ready for new summer season. Trade winter coats and knitted hats for light outfits and skimpy bikinis. However, every change of season affects our bodies, especially skin and hair. Women best know how stressful and nerve wrecking blemishes and increased loss of hair are. Usually, this change lasts for about 4 to 6 weeks, however, for many women it may never stop but get worse instead. Especially hair loss.
Hair loss may be a result of genetic inheritance from either parent, but it can also occur due to the use of strong shampoos, styling products , hormonal imbalance, pregnancy, menopause and stress. Hair loss and thinning hair were for long associated with men only, however in the past decade these illnesses have become a big issue for many women. And in the society we live in, where hair is a symbol for femininity, sex appeal and beauty in general, women have hard time accepting and dealing with hair loss and thinning hair. Although not curable, there are several ways to camouflage thinning hair.
Human hair pieces are one of the ways to camouflage your thin and damaged hair and even bald scalp. They are easy to use and maintain and are available in various colors and styles. Depending on the quality and make they range from very affordable to expensive. One of the reasons many prefer clip in hair pieces over hair replacement or other drugs, is the fact that these type of hair pieces can be attached and detached from own hair at any time. It is in fact recommended to remove clip in hair pieces before going to bed.
Clip in hair extensions are another way to hide thinning hair and are popular hair trend for those who want to instantly add length and volume to existing hair. Just like hair pieces, clip in hair extensions are easy to use and care for and can easily be removed and reattached. They are made of either synthetic or human hair, thus range in price but have the same end effect – instantly transform the look of dull, brittle and damaged thinning hair.
Other things that can help you deal with your thinning hair is using softer shampoo, preferably natural ones which are not loaded with harmful chemicals. Also, avoid washing hair often and try to limit to 2-3 times a week. If possible use homemade hair masks and essential oils prior to washing. Never comb your hair when wet and use wide-tooth comb or boar bristle brush. If not sure which cleaning or styling product to choose, consult with your hairstylist and ask her to recommend best type of clip in hair pieces. Keep one thing in mind though, no matter what you choose, clip in hair pieces, hair extensions or hair replacement, what is important is that your choice makes you happy and helps you achieve desired look.
