Symptoms of styling hair loss

  • Excessive styling can result in extra hair loss. The hair will simply come out of its follicle and will detach itself from the scalp.
  • Yet, the greatest distressing consequences of styling your hair are seen when you find your hair breaking from the middle, which results in hair that is thin, weak and fragile.
  • The dull hair looks sad and if there is endless hair loss then the time will come when there will be hardly any hair on the scalp.

Testing for styling hair loss

  • In order to test for styling hair loss you need to hold all your hair in one hand and then pull them lightly from the other hand.
  • If it has bulbs of hair follicles in the end, it may not be because of styling.
  • However, if it does, it is time to give away all your products and tools of styling some rest and follow natural procedures for some time.

What can be done?

The best solution to this is to stop using the styling products totally. A hair dryer is as innocent as a heavy-duty curler could be. Don’t be unfair and simply pack them all away from your reach for a few weeks so that you can get your lustrous hair back. Along with this, make sure you eat a healthy diet and massage your hair with good oils.
