Aging and Hair Loss

Getting older means going through a second, less glamorous puberty. Once you hit a certain age, you will likely experience weight fluctuation, different energy levels, and a change in overall appearance. Fine lines, wrinkles, and a few gray hairs are all surefire signs that you’re growing older.

For some people though, the gray hair never comes. Many of us will start balding long before we go gray, and this is something that not many people look forward to.

However, thinning hair has become less and less of a sad milestone as time goes on. New treatments for compensating for hair loss have reached high levels of popularity in recent years.

Treating hair loss

If your hair is thinning, there’s a good chance you’ve looked up all of the different treatment options out there. Popular treatment options include hair transplants, wigs, and hair growth serums, as well as using hair dye and cosmetic makeup. All promise to reduce the appearance of thin hair while maintaining the user’s original hairstyle.

If you’re looking to embrace thinning hair, there are also options available for that! Many people choose to throw caution to the wind and shave their heads once they notice hair loss. If this sounds like something you’d do, don’t be afraid to take the plunge.

Shaved heads are quickly becoming a popular trend. If you shave yours, you’re making a fashion statement while also compensating for hair loss. Scalp Revolution recommends scalp micropigmentation to anyone who wants to shave their heads because of hair loss.  Scalp micropigmentation is a lasting solution that helps even out the scalp’s appearance so that your new hairstyle can look its best. It can even add density throughout if you’re looking for a more dramatic shaved head hairstyle.

Does Hair Dye Cause Hair Loss?

Does Hair Dye Cause Hair Loss?

Ask anyone and they’ve likely experimented with hair dye at one point in their lives. Those of you who love switching up your hair color may be asking yourselves, does hair dye cause my hair to fall out?

The answer to the above question is…..yes. While hair dye does not cause hair loss in everyone, it causes hair loss in some who choose to dye their hair.

There are two main ways in which dying your hair can cause you to notice more and more hairs falling out in the shower. First, the hair dye itself. When you dye your hair, you are putting a product containing chemicals such as ammonia and hydrogen peroxide.

These two chemicals are harsh and can loosen up the hairs on your head, making them more prone to thinning. Hair dyes that lighten the hair have the most peroxide, so those lightening their hair need to be extra careful.

Secondly, the constant rubbing motions needed during the hair dyeing process can put a lot of stress on your mane, further making it easier for your hair to fall out. Make sure to be as gentle as possible when dying your hair in the future.

Lastly, hair dye diminishes the protein backbone of the hair strands. This hair backbone is needed for the hair to remain healthy and strong. Without it, the hairs are weak and don’t need a lot of force to fall out.

What Can I Do? If you love dyeing your hair, don’t panic. Besides laying off the hair dye, you can take oral medicine or use topicals designed to regrow hair. If you want more density to cover up the damage done by hair dye, scalp micropigmentation services like Team Micro do just that.
