Getting More Hair: Volume!

If you have  read any of the earlier posts, or to visited the Hair Loss Association, you understand that it is essential to visit with a doctor to find out what your hair loss is and “why” it is. For those of you who have not checked with a doctor (dermatologist, hair loss specialist) the sooner you do so, the better equipped you will be able to manage (not stop or cure) your hair loss. You may want to check out the Women Hair Loss Project  for ideas. You can click  Blogs I Like  link  (underneath the  BLOGROLLl) on this page to go there.   For those of you who have already seen a doctor, now you have an opportunity to take more action. And, you probably have been given some guidance on how to proactively handle this issue.

Hair Loss products constitute a  formidable industry, and thankfully so This industry provides us with much ability to explore what our likes and dislikes are, what works, and what doesn’t. In addition, it gives us some ways to experiment with ideas that can help our hair look and feel more healthy.

¿What can you do?

Get  excited about your  Beauty Change‘ . One important example we can think about is how we want to change our look to accommodate what is happening to our hair.  Among other information, HairBlues will bring you reports on products I have used. In addition, HairBlues will find products and websites, which offer creative ways to deal with hair loss. On occasion I will give   links, or web addresses in case you want to research the information given here in more detail.

Here  is this week’s review/report 🙂

 Volumizer hair products are a way to give your hair more body, and therefore the appearance of more  thickness.  They make the hair shafts look thicker!

 Some Volumizer Hair  Products I like

 Philip B.  Peppermint & Avocado Clarifying Volumizing Shampoo.   This product has a somewhat higher price, and it has an aromatherapy aspect to it. The peppermint gives a stimulating feeling to your scalp.  I truly enjoy using the product and I like the way it leaves my hair after use.  I usually mix it with a little water instead of pouring it directly on my scalp; however, you can find more information about this Philip B. shampoo at http://www.Amazon.com _  In the Search field – type in Phillip B.

I also use these volumizing sprays.  I recommend spare use to avoid too much build up on your hair.  The prices are in the upper range, but can last over a period of time.  These products can  also be found at:  Amazon.com, Aveda stores, and Hair Rules products can be found at Target stores, or at their respective sites.

 Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Spray.

Hair Rules Volumizing Hair Spray.   Hair Rules has its own website (http://www.hairrules.com); Amazon.com also has this product.

Other products to check out are:

  • Pantene Volumizing Shampoo with Conditioner.  I have used this product, and it did give my hair more thickness.  I would definitely use the shampoo which has a conditioner.  Some people advise that volumizing shampoos can leave your hair dull, depending on the texture and frequency of use.  This product is lower priced, and received rave reviews from Good Housekeeping.  It can be purchased at Amazon.com or various drugstores.
  • Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner. Aveda has its own stores, but these products  can often be found in drugstores as well as  http://www.Amazon.com – In the Search field –Type in Aveda Pure Abundance Shampoo

The products I’ve mentioned are a good start for exploration; however you should remember these are not magic potions that will cure your hair thinning, or hair loss.  They are just a first step in finding ways to change how your hair looks and discovering how to “manage” your changing circumstance.  Stay positive!

In the meanwhile, you will also want to check out what the research done by Good Housekeeping has to say about volumizing  shampoos, and products.  It’s a fairly thorough report.  Just click the link: http://tinyurl.com/6spklyl[Open in new window]

FYI: I have not solicited nor received any of the products I have reviewed here.  I purchased all the products reviewed here, without any coaxing, suggesting, or communication with the producers/manufacturers.  I hope this is helpful 🙂

Call your doctor to determine if you have hair loss

What to Expect at Your Office Visit

A careful medical history and examination of the hair and scalp are usually enough to diagnose the cause of your hair loss.

Your doctor will ask detailed questions such as:

♦ Are you losing hair only from your scalp or from other parts of your body as well?

♦ Is there a pattern to the hair loss, like a receding hairline or thinning or bald areas on the crown, or is the hair loss throughout your head?

♦ Have you had a recent illness or high fever?

♦ Do you dye your hair?

♦ Do you blow dry your hair? How often?

♦ How often do you shampoo your hair?

♦ What kind of shampoo, hair spray, gel, or other product do you put on your hair?

♦ Have you been under unusual stress lately?

♦ Do you have nervous habits that include hair pulling or scalp rubbing?

♦ Do you have any other symptoms like itching, flaking, or redness of your scalp?

♦ What medications do you take, including over-the-counter drugs?

♦ Tests that may be performed (but are rarely needed) include:

♦ Blood tests to rule out disease

♦ Microscopic examination of a plucked hair

♦ Skin biopsy
