OMG…Am I Going Bald? Mickey Answers Often Asked Question

Posted by Mickey B.

As a hairdresser I get asked a lot of the same questions over and over again. They are good questions.

Is my hair thinning?” “Am I going bald?” “Do you think my hairline is receding?”

When the answer to these questions is “Yes,”and sometimes it is – I want to give good information AND make sure the answer helps the client feel better. Today, I want to share some of what I tell people in the Salon, with even more of you who may also be wondering, but haven’t yet asked.

Thinning or heavily shedding hair can be caused my many things. Our bodies change throughout our lives and this can change our hair. Hair can sometimes change texture and even go from straight to curly or vice versa. Some changes in hair are perfectly normal and to be expected. We can help you with style and hair care to deal with some kinds of hair changes.

Diet can also play a role in hair loss. In my years of experience I have witnessed clients who began intense diets or exercise programs to drop weight fast and have shed more hair than usual. Stress and child birth can cause shedding as well. Hair loss from stress, diet, and child birth are usually temporary and hair can grow back.

If you are experiencing hair loss there are many options to help. There are shampoos and conditioners that will cleanse your scalp to help promote healthy hair growth. I have yet to experience an over-the-counter hair product that grows hair on balding heads. Wigs, toupees, and hair transplants are always an option. But the best way to help get through temporary hair loss is the use of hair extensions.

Hair extensions are most commonly thought of as a way to lengthen hair and get that long, flowing look that is so popular now. There are many other uses for hair extensions, however, such as thickening hair, and adding highlights instead of using permanent hair color. They are also great for special occasions like weddings and formal events. Hair extensions can last from 3 months to 3 years depending on the method of application and personal needs. Cost can vary as well.

My favorite hair extension product is Dreamcatchers. It is a unique, damage free, glue-free, and painless product that can be worn for up to three years. Michael Anthony Salon stylists are trained and certified in the application of Dreamcatcher hair extensions.

Please call us at the salon to get more info about this great product. We love to answer your questions, and it is important to us that you get answers you can trust.

Enjoy your hair!
