You’ve already booked your tickets to go home for the holidays, but as the departure date approaches, you’re beginning to feel anxious. You know that you’ve been battling hair loss this year, and so you’re a bit worried about seeing people who remember you with a thick head of hair.
While many people struggle with hair loss, it’s not uncommon for your confidence to take a hit when your hair looks thinner than you’d like. Rather than just crossing your fingers and hoping for the best, here are five tips to help you become more zen about your thinning locks before your big holiday trip.
- Don’t Stress
It’s easy to worry about seeing family and friends when your physical appearance has changed, but stress can actually accelerate hair loss. Try to fit regular exercise and breaks into the busy holiday season to manage mild anxiety as it appears. Yoga and meditation are also good ways to stay stress-free.
- Get a Cut and Color You Love
Don’t ignore your hair just because it’s thinning. Invest in an excellent cut before the holidays, so you can confidently attend holiday parties and get-togethers. If you want to make your hair appear thicker, consult with your hairstylist. Dyeing your hair or cutting it shorter are two ways to boost thinning strands.
- Ditch Your Frenemies
The friends you visit should like you for your sparkling personality — not the hair on your head. If you have friends who are unkind, maybe it’s time to skip visiting them this year. Instead of going to a big holiday celebration, try organizing small meet-ups with the friends you really want to see while you’re in town.
- Consider Wearing a Wig
If the idea of rocking your existing hair is making you anxious, think about investing in a wig for the holiday season. Plenty of Hollywood starlets use wigs to quickly change their looks and give their hair a rest, so don’t be afraid to try this trend if it interests you. That way you can enjoy the holidays and get ready to tackle your hair loss in the New Year.
- Remember That Everyone Changes
Chances are you won’t be the only one whose appearance has changed during the past year. Some relatives will have gained a few pounds, while others will have gained a few wrinkles. Remember: The purpose of the holidays is to see the people you love, so work on treating everyone with grace and love. By not giving voice to unkind remarks and gossip, you’ll set the tone for your holiday celebrations and encourage others to be just as kind.
