In just minutes, a root topper by Tymeless Necessity Hair can restore any bald or thinning area so that you can hide bald spots and loss of hair in minutes. And best of all, no one’s ever going to know the hair isn’t your own!
On average, we lose anywhere between 50 to 100 hair a day. While seeing hair shedding can be concerning, in most cases, this hair loss is normal and won’t cause any significant changes to your hair’s volume or length. However, balding can happen when there’s more hair loss than there is growth.
What causes balding?
Even today, medical professionals have varying views on the causes of hair loss. Some maintain that balding or thinning is mainly hereditary and inherited either from the mother’s side or from the side of the father. However, even if both of your parents had full, luscious locks, you may be predisposed to hair loss.
Balding often happens gradually in both males and females. In men, it causes a receding hairline and thinning. These are typical male pattern baldness characteristics. Typically women don’t develop a receding hairline. Instead, they often experience thinning all over the top of the scalp, which manifests as a widening part of the hair. This is typical of female pattern baldness.
Balding may be triggered by:
Genetics, meaning that it’s inherited
Process of normal ageing
Other possible causes of bald spots or hair loss
Hair loss can also be triggered by the following conditions, some of which can be permanent and others reversible:
- Traction Alopecia: Some hairstyles can pull and stress the hair follicles, causing breakage and root damage.
- Alopecia Areata: The hair roots can be damaged by an autoimmune disease where the body attacks its hair follicles, resulting in hair loss.
- Anagen Effluvium: With this disease, a toxic substance impairs the hair follicle. This hair loss is most often associated with chemotherapy, but it can also be caused by radiation therapy and other drugs.
- Telogen Effluvium: With this condition, hair loss results from substantial stress or shock. It usually develops after an event, such as surgery, physical trauma, disease, or severe weight loss.
- Tinea Capitis: Tinea capitis is scalp ringworm. It occurs when the scalp and hair shaft are infected by fungi, causing a localized scaly patch. If not treated early, this can cause scarring and hence, permanent hair loss.
- Other conditions: Hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, nutritional deficiencies, iron deficiency anemia, and a low-protein diet may also cause hair loss.
Did you know?
- Hair loss dramatically affects the way people see themselves and often contributes to them losing confidence.
- Over 50 percent of females experience balding.
- About 85 percent of men are balding by 50 years of age.
- In 25% of men who have hair loss related to genetics, it starts before they are 21 years old.
Treatment options for balding
The following six options are among the most common treatments for male or female pattern baldness:
- Minoxidil or Rogaine: Topical products that stimulate hair growth
- Hormone Therapy: Estrogen and progesterone therapy may help slow down hair loss in women during menopause.
- Laser Therapy: To stimulate hair follicles, laser therapy uses low energy pulses of light.
- Injections of protein-rich plasma (PRP): The treatment with PRP uses platelets from your blood. It is concentrated and injected into hair loss locations, which may contribute to hair development.
- Hair Transplant: The surgeon removes existing hair during a hair transplant and reinserts the hair into bald spots on the scalp.
- Nutrition: For women who consume omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and antioxidants, hair growth may increase.
Can balding be prevented?
Balding isn’t preventable due to genetics. However, with these tips, you can lower the risk of other types of hair loss:
- Loosen your hairstyle: Tight hairstyles can damage your hair follicles, like ponytails or braids.
- Limit damage from heat: Styling devices such as straighteners and curling irons can lead to root damage.
- Massage the scalp: Some recent research has shown that regular massages of the scalp may help promote hair development.
- Eat a healthy diet: Sometimes, diet can be a factor, too. A diet low in vitamins A, C, E, and B12 often leads to brittle, unhealthy, easily falling out tresses.
The bottom line
Talk to Tymeless Necessity Hair about wigs and hairpieces designed to conceal balding and bald spots if you’re concerned about balding. For maximum volume, length, and fullness, we offer a full array of toppers. Our toppers provide coverage on the sides and top of the head and the crown and back of the head for any thinning areas. For males, women, and children of all ages with hair loss, alopecia, cancer, thyroid conditions, alopecia, or just fine thin hair that is inherited, they are light, easy hair solutions.
A woman’s hair topper is a hairpiece that blends with your own hair by a few snaps of the built-in clips. Our toppers are a perfect solution for anyone with hair loss or hair thinning by providing more volume and density. These hairpieces shade different hair loss areas depending on the coverage you want and are a great option for those who do not wish to opt for a full wig. Monofilament, lace, or a silk base make up hair toppers. The base may vary in various sizes. They can also come in various lengths and various thicknesses.
It is essential that you know the amount of hair thinning and hair loss you have before choosing which topper is best for you. Take a measuring tape from front to back and side to side and measure your hair loss area. To each measurement, be sure to add an additional inch, and then this will be the base size you need. There are plenty of helpful YouTube videos about how to do this. This will give you an idea of how much coverage you need, and when it comes to selecting the base of your hair topper, you will have a simpler decision to make. With daily wear and taking good care of it, your hair topper can last you anywhere from six months to over a year. By storing it in a box when you’re not wearing it, which will prevent it from collecting dust, and using sulphate-free shampoos and conditioners, you can extend your hair topper’s life.
