It doesn’t matter your gender or your age, most people want to have hair that is thick, healthy and shiny instead of their rather thin and stringy hair. If you are noticing that you have more hair in the drain of your shower, don’t get too worried because there is a chance it could be reversible. Common Culprits of Reversible Hair Loss Every day you may use products or have habits that might just be the reason you are finding more hair in your shower drain than you would like to find there. Using Less Shampoo There are tons of shampoos on the market but most of them could be doing more than cleansing your hair. Some of these quality hair care products contain sulfates. In fact, over 90% of the shampoos sold contain sulfates like sodium laureth sulfate or sodium lauryl sulfate. The sulfates are used to create a rich lather you have come to expect from a shampoo, but the same sulfates can dehydrate your scalp by stripping the natural moisturizing oils and clogging the hair follicles. Excessively Shampooing It is common for a lot of people to shampoo their hair every day. A better option is to shampoo every other day or even every two or three days. It will result in thicker hair and a healthier scalp. In between the days you don’t shampoo, simply rinse and gently massage the hair with water to help remove the styling product buildup. Poor Handling of Wet Hair When someone’s hair is wet they often try to dry it by rubbing a towel through it. They may flip longer hair upside down to dry, or brush or comb it repeatedly to dry it.

When your hair is starved of essential nutrients, which the blood supplies to the hair, it will become weak and fall out. Another symptom of this can indirectly lead to hair loss. Those with diabetes for example are more susceptible to infections, and many of them can cause hair loss. The body struggles to absorb zinc which is an important nutrient for hair. There are also a number of medications that individuals with diabetes may take that can contribute to the problem. Are There Options?

Finding and choosing the right wigs for you is a big deal. It can be a life-changing experience and is truly an investment in yourself and your future. It is important then to take good care of your wigs on a regular and consistent basis to keep them looking new, clean, and stylish.

Storing When not being worn, your wig should always be stored on a wig block or wig stand to keep it from getting tangled, damaged, or misshapen. It is best to keep the stand in a dry location that is free from moisture, mold, dirt, and dust as well as extreme temperatures. High heat, from a lamp or direct sunlight, should be avoided. Cleaning To clean your wig, begin by making sure that it is free of tangles by working through the strands with a comb, starting at the ends and working towards the cap. You will use shampoo for cleaning the wig, but it is important to avoid brands like Clairol, Pantene, Sauve, or Head & Shoulders as these products contain a high percentage of chemicals that accelerate the loss of color and moisture.
