Really how serious is Hair Loss in the UK?

Hair loss in the UK is more common than you think. Whether you are losing your hair due to getting older or have a serious condition such as alopecia. You will need to work out for yourself how serious your condition is before seeking help.

On average each day both men and women will lose up to 100 hairs per day naturally through normal daily tasks such as brushing or showering. It is normal for this amount of hair to fall out and naturally, our bodies will grow more hair than actually falls out so there shouldn’t be an immediate alarm.

There are many conditions will result in severe hair loss such as psoriasis, eczema or illnesses. Vitamin deficiencies can also be a huge trigger in loss of hair and looking after our bodies and hair is an important and key factor in making sure our locks stay healthy.

Mistreating your hair can be one of the main considerations of serious hair loss. If you are constantly overworking your hair with different treatments and styles such as dying your hair, straightening, backcombing, gel and product styling or aggressive brushing can lead to temporary or permanent hair loss.
