The end of summer is always a bittersweet time. Warm weather begins cooling off, the pools are closing, and the beaches don’t have quite as many faces on them. Those summer activities are ones to remember, but they can be remembered in the wrong way when it comes to your hair and how that summer fun can leave your hair a discolored mess.
What is a Glossing?
A Hair Glossing is a quick add-on service that refreshes color that has faded or oxidized by depositing color and resealing the hair cuticle, allowing hair to have a more natural, rich tone and healthy feel vs. the faded, unnatural look and unhealthy feel.
A Hair Glossing is recommended after prolonged sun exposure (like after the summer months) or every three months to help keep hair looking and feeling great and extend the life of healthy hair. One of our hair specialists can also make recommendations on when hair is beginning to oxidize and when a Hair Glossing will make the most impact!
Brushing your hair is a part of your daily routine, but can it also cause hair loss? The answer is yes, in some cases.
How much hair is normal to lose when brushing?
Is Hair Loss Caused by Brushing? Let’s start by saying that it’s normal to lose 80-100 hairs a day. They’ll grow back because this is the normal life cycle of a hair follicle. You’ll lose most of the 80-100 hairs when you brush or shampoo. However, if you are losing more than 100 hairs per day, noticing bald patches on your scalp, or seeing a lot of short hairs, it is possible that brushing your hair is causing hair loss.
In your hair care routine, your hairbrush is an essential tool. In addition to detangling and distributing your natural oils evenly, it also styles your hair. But how often should you replace your hairbrush? The answer depends on a few factors, including the type of brush you use, how often you use it, and how well you care for it.
What is the typical lifespan of a hair brush?
In general, you should replace your hairbrush every 6 to 12 months. This is because, over time, your hairbrush can become dirty, worn out, and ineffective.
It may be necessary to replace your hairbrush more frequently if you have fine or thin hair, as these types of hair are more prone to breakage. It may be possible for you to get away with replacing your hairbrush less frequently if you have thick or curly hair.
At Jeffrey Paul Hair Restoration Center, we know it’s been an incredibly stressful time. The time leading up to the election, and the event itself, has left a lot of people distressed and uncertain. Couple those feelings with the hustle and bustle that arrives during the upcoming holidays, and you have the potential for a lot of stressed out Americans. How is all this stress affecting your hair, and are there things that can be done to prevent hair loss?
Stress, anxiety and depression are never good for your body especially when combined with the medications that can be associated with them. When dealing with factors that contribute to hair loss, one of the biggest internal components is the medications used to treat those conditions. Drugs dealing with high blood pressure, cholesterol, mood enhancing (anti-depressants) and hormones (hormone enhancement, menopause, birth control and testosterone) can all lead or contribute to hair thinning problems.
