Recently, actress Keira Knightley open up about her struggle with hair loss. After years of dying and processing her hair for different roles, Keira’s hair became so damaged that it started to fall out. For the past five years, the actress has actually been wearing wigs! This news is shocking because many women are embarrassed to admit they struggle with hair loss. The truth is that hair loss is not just a male problem; women deal with thinning hair, too.

If you think you are suffering from hair loss, it’s important to stay calm and evaluate the situation. There are many different causes for hair loss in women. If you think your hair is thinning, check out these tips:

  • Stop processing your hair. Coloring, straightening, and styling can seriously damage your hair. If you think your hair is starting to thin, take a break from all your hair tools. Heat and chemicals cause your hair to break and fall out.
  • The next step is to figure out the cause. Hair loss can be hereditary or cause by changes in your body, such as pregnancy or menopause. It can also be the result of over-processing your hair. Take note that is can also be indicative of serious medical conditions.
  • See a doctor. If you really think your hair is thinning, it’s important to seek medical help. Make an appointment with your dermatologist or a doctor the specializes in hair problems. A doctor will help you get to the root of the problem and let you know if your hair loos is a result of a serious medical condition or disease.
  • According to this article by Marie Claire, 90 percent of hair loss is genetic and needs to be treated with medication. Many women opt for Rogaine, however, you should do your research and consult with a doctor before deciding on a treatment plan.
