Look for special shampoos for hair that is thinning. Many conditioners and shampoos, while good if you have normal hair, provide no benefit for someone who is going bald. Look for cleansing products that are specifically formulated for those who are balding. These products can help to slow hair loss, leave what hair you have left feeling amazingly soft and looking great, and even help to heal your scalp and regrow some of your hair. Many women experiencing hair loss are surprised to find hormones are causing it. Hormone imbalances, which can be triggered by perimenopause, stress or simple issues such as the wrong birth control pills, may cause women to lose more hair than normal. Hormone replacement therapy can even create a hormonal imbalance for a short time. Get your hormone levels analyzed by a physician if you are losing hair. If you are experiencing thinning hair and are thinking about a wig, you should think twice about that. The weight and pressure of a wig can break your already frail roots, causing you to lose your remaining hair even faster. Hats, wigs and helmets shouldn’t be worn when experiencing hair loss in order not to speed the process.
