Some people are expecting hair loss. That's because it begins by the age of 35 for about two thirds of men. Nearly 85% of men experience hair thinning or loss by the time they hit 50.
You know who's not expecting hair loss? Young people.
Most 21-year-old guys and 30-year-old women haven't heard much about thinning hair. Why would they? It's hard enough for men and women in their 40s, 50s, and 60s to deal with hair loss. Since fewer young people need hair loss treatments, shedding or thinning hair can be especially scary and isolating for them. If this is happening to you, you're not alone.
First off, this happens to more young people than you'd think.
Women and men lose their hair for so many reasons. Androgenetic alopecia is usually the culprit for men, but women's hair loss can be caused by hormones, stress, hair pulling, or even pattern baldness. A big life event can trigger hair loss for anyone, as can therapeutic treatments or medications. Your secret is yours to keep, but that doesn't mean you can't talk to anyone.
You can feel better about hair loss.
The Mane Image team features cosmetologists, wig specialists, and even medical specialists who can help you understand what's actually happening and why, as well as what you can expect down the road. We can turn your uncertainty into understanding and give you the kind of information you can act on.
Early action can be the most valuable action.
Most people's initial reaction to the first signs of hair loss is to not even realize or believe there's a problem. While some conditions cause your hair to fall out in clumps, others involve thinning with hardly any shedding at all. By taking action early, you can find out if your hair loss can be stopped, slowed down, or reversed. The first step towards a lifetime of great hair is often to keep the hair you have.
We'll consider natural hair growth remedies.
Some causes of hair loss, including androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness), happen in stages. They affect the hair during multiple stages of growth, shortening the growing phase and causing follicles to remain dormant longer than they should. Hair begins to thin before the follicle actually dies. Our approach to hair restoration gives you the option to promote hair growth and prevent future thinning and loss. This isn't an option for everyone, but before we recommend a surgical or cosmetic solution, we'll explore whether a treatment like laser hair therapy or Minoxidil can help your hair grow back naturally.
If you're thinking, "I'm too young for this," come talk to the Mane Image team. The initial consultation is free, and it will give you the peace of mind knowing what's going on with your hair and what you can do about it. If you don't know how to bring it up to friends and family, we hope that you'll talk about it with us.
