Hormones and Hair Growth: Pregnancy

Hormones and Hair Growth: Pregnancy

There is a misconception that pre-natal supplements cause hair growth, but there is no scientific evidence to suggest that taking prenatal vitamins can help hair or nails grow longer, faster or stronger.  Credit actually goes to your hormones for that pregnancy glow and amazing skin. The increased blood circulation and your pumped-up metabolism that are bringing more nutrients to your hair and nails also deserve some thanks.  You may find that your hair feels fuller and nails stronger when you’re pregnant. But you’re not actually growing more hair (and the strands themselves aren’t any thicker) – you’re just losing it more...

3 Ways to Decrease Hair Shedding

3 Ways to Decrease Hair Shedding

Hair in the sink was the main cause of my roommate drama in college.  I hated seeing those long hairs in the shower drain. As a black female with permed hair, I rarely saw shedding except for when I changed my  hair styles (every 2-3 months). It wasn’t until I went “natural” that I was really introduced to daily hair care and the dreaded shedding scares! Don’t be frightened.  Shedding is completely normal.  The average human head has an estimated 100,000 to 150,00 hairs on it.  Shedding 30 to 50 strands daily is normal.

Stress And Hair loss

Stress And Hair loss

t’s no myth that stress causes hair loss. If you’re constantly on the go and not taking any time to wind down, your stressful lifestyle could be wreaking havoc on your hair. Incidents such as accidents, the death of a loved one, emotional isolation, severe psychological stress, or other traumatic events can cause your hair to shed prematurely.   Hair will not shed immediately. Instead you may see hair loss about three months after the onset of your stress. Large amounts of hair can seem to fall out all at once, and for no discernable reason since several months will...
