If you notice that your hair is thinning, collecting in your brush, or lacking its luster, there is no need to fret. Hair loss is very common in both men and women, and it can happen at any age. Although losing your hair can be alarming, there are solutions that can help you.
Before you seek intervention, first check to see if you’re experiencing these symptoms.
A Widening Hair Part
A widening part is one of the first signs of hair loss or thinning, and it is more common in women than men. As you style your hair in the morning, inspect your part and check for signs of thinning. If your scalp is visible, this is usually a strong indication of hair thinning.
You can also start paying closer attention to your hairbrushes and hair ties to see if they are collecting hair.
Signs of a Receding Hairline
A receding hairline is a common symptom of hair loss in men. However, females can notice a receding hairline, too, usually forming around their temples. When you begin to notice your hair becoming shorter or thinner in certain areas, this is called hair miniaturization. Once your hair follicle becomes inactive, it will begin to produce thinner and shorter hair until it eventually stops producing hair altogether.
The Ponytail Test for Hair Loss
If you wear your hair up in a ponytail or bun, there is an accurate way to tell if you are experiencing hair loss. For both men and women, make sure you pay attention to the number of times you wrap your ponytail holder around your hair. If you begin to notice that you have to wrap your band extra time to keep your hair in place, this is usually a strong indicator that your hair is thinning.
Also, when you take your ponytail out, check your hair tie to see if it collects any clumps of hair. If it collects unusual amounts, this is typically a sign of hair loss.
