Scalp infection and hair loss

We know many reasons why our hair may not be growing as we would want it to, but one very particular problem is often overlooked. Worse yet, it can affect adults and children of any gender or age and the effects on your hair may be devastating. The problem may actually be a scalp infection. Not only can these infections wreak havoc on your hair, they are difficult to diagnose and to treat. Three major scalp infections can mess with our hair.

Ringworm can cause scalp infection and hair loss

When you have ringworm, it means that your scalp has a fungal infection. It is common among young children and contagious as well. But do not make the mistake of assuming that only children may have problems, the fungus does not discriminate. Even worse, the problem is not limited to the scalp either; any part of the body may be affected because ringworm affects hair follicles and hair shafts. After a topical or oral antifungal medication, ringworm can be cured. While your hair is likely to come back after the fungal infection is taken care of, it might take quite a while.

Alopecia Areata can cause scalp infection and hair loss

Like ringworm, Alopecia Areata can affect all parts of the body that have hair follicles. It is an autoimmune disease. This means that hair loss results from the body attacking itself, thinking it is somehow fending off an intruder. It often leads to sudden hair loss and there may not be signs of scaling, broken hair, or inflammation usually associated with an infection. With Alopecia Areata, it is not uncommon to lose hair overnight in oval or round patches. Worse yet, there is no current treatment for Alopecia Areata and it is a very aggressive disease. The only positive is that because it is an autoimmune disease, it often goes back into remission (meaning the symptoms subside) during which time you can have your hair grow back.

Folliculitis can cause scalp infection and hair loss

With folliculitis, the hair follicles become inflamed. If the inflammation is bad enough, you will notice that you start losing your hair, and it could even destroy the hair follicles permanently. That means that the hair will never grow back. Folliculitis comes in different forms, both infectious and non-infectious. Depending on the severity, it can be treated with topical ointments (for minor infections) or an oral antibiotic (for more serious or severe infections).

Hair Loss With Age: When will it stop?

Hair loss with age can happen to anyone

You blow out the candles to (yet another) cake while looking at your friends and family around you. You are exactly where you want to be in life, but there is one problem that leers over your head every time you look in the mirror – literally. Your hair, it just seems to be falling off in tufts, with only the sides remaining now. When will this stop? Don’t worry, if you experience a little hair loss with age, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are going to go bald.

Luckily, hair loss with age will stop, hopefully sometime soon, but there is no way to tell. Usually, men over the age of 60 see less hair loss with age than those unlucky men younger than them.

The later the better for men

You see, once hair loss begins, it continues over a person’s lifetime, but it’s hard to estimate where and when the hair loss will stop. Unfortunately, on average, the younger you are when you begin to notice a change in the density of your hair, the more likely you are to go completely bald sooner than you may be comfortable with.

It’s different for women

The exact opposite is true for women. Even if you hit the 50-year benchmark with a full head of hair . once there is a loss of estrogen after menopause, women will find that hair loss may increase, and get worse with age. All is not lost – like many things in life, proper nutrition can help. So make sure to eat your veggies!

Hair brush choices got you confused?

It’s time for a spring cleaning for your bathroom– and not a moment too soon. Your kits and caboodles are overflowing with hair brushes and combs, and it’s time to throw some of the older ones away. But hair products are expensive, and you know they are still useful, so which do you keep?

What is this boar bristle hype all about?

If you’ve looked into hair products lately, chances are you’ve read about the wonders of boar bristle brushes. People really like these brushes, but it’s not only because they are the latest it thing. Boar bristle brushes are, in general, easier on the hair than your typical plastic hair brush, with the added bonus that they distribute your natural oils from your scalp, down to your oftentimes-dryer ends.

In addition, the hard boar bristles are very effective at removing gross pile-up from dirt, dust, and debris from your everyday life, so it can even help in keeping your hair clean. That’s not all, the hard bristles of a boar hair brush are perfect for massaging your scalp, thereby stimulating the blood flow to your scalp and preventing hair loss.

Don’t worry, you can keep a brush for every occasion

So which of your boar bristle brushes do you keep? Well, all of them! All hair brushes serve a different purpose, and it is important to use them correctly. For starters, a paddle hair brush is best for detangling wet hair, while a round hair brush is perfect for use while blow drying – do your research on the hair brush you leave in your drawers to find out which of these boar bristles don’t really fit your morning routine.

Know Your Roots: Quick and Simple Trick for a Flawless Hairstyle

Oops, you did it again – you got caught up in a “Real Housewives of New Jersey” marathon and now you are getting picked up for your date in just a few minutes, but you are still soaking wet from your shower. How do you expect to have your hair looking, well, non-ape-like and still look fabulous just in time for Prince Charming to sweep you off your feet?

If you want to build a better hair style, it’s best to think about it like a construction site – you gotta build from the ground, up – that is to say, from the roots throughout the length of your hair. You see, when you blow dry your roots first, you set a foundation for the rest of your hair, giving you more control for the shape of your style.  As an added bonus, this technique also sets you up for fuller and more voluminous hair.

Once your roots are done, you can go ahead and style your hair in whichever way you prefer – now that your foundation has been set, the rest of your locks should follow. When using hot tools to style your hair, make sure that your hair is completely dry before even thinking about touching that hot iron to your mane – this can potentially fry your hair by damaging the cuticle,  and you have spent way too much time looking that good to have hair that smells like burnt toast.

But hurry! He’ll be there in 15 minutes, just enough time to apply some makeup and choose an outfit — now that your roots are dry, there is no need for you to stress your hair!
