So you think your going BALD?
What with all the hair your see in the shower, bathroom floor,sink, pillow etc.
It is more likely that you are in the Myth process of trying to grow your hair, so you've been diligent about not getting your shedding locks cut.
Well, I here to tell you that there lies the problem.........
Ready? Read carefully,
Natural hair loss is about 60 to 100 follicles per day, this is our shedding cycle, the hair sheds from scalp.
( this occurrence can be a good way to gauge your need for a trip to the salon)
You see when we fall between 4-5-6 weeks tops, of not having our hair trimmed/cut/pruned.
The hair shaft will continue to do its natural shedding but also, more importantly it SNAPS mid shaft, (which is the excess of the natural shedding that makes you believe your going BALD!)
So here's a GREAT INSIGHT........
This hair that has snapped mid shaft then has remaining shattered follicles that act like an open door to accept ;
HUMIDITY, HIGH SALT CONTENT in our atmosphere (SW Floridians), therefore you can NEVER get more then 10min outside before your a Poof Ball. Right?
So, I can not stress enough how important a regular trim/ cut / pruning is. And I do NOT mean taking any old scissor and chipping away at your fried ends. No, I do not, I mean going to a professional and stressing the amount you would like taken off and this refers to the interior of your hair as well as the ends.
Do this little test, grab a 3/4 in section of your hair, stand in front of a mirror and hold the section straight up from your head- slide your hand up to the ends of that bunched section, do you see the difference in the density closer to you scalp compared to mid shaft and the to the ends? Yeah that's what I trying to tell ya!
Get your self to a salon, regularly!
