Or, you might ask your client if theyve noticed more hair coming out in the shower or when brushing their hair lately, or ask if their hair has become more difficult to style. If your client does mention their hair loss, the first step is to suggest a visit to their doctor or dermatologist. They will be able to determine the cause of the hair loss and rule out any underlying health concerns. Hair loss can occur from a wide array of reasons, including hereditary hair loss (also known as androgenic alopecia or female/male pattern hair loss, the most common cause of hair loss), menopause, thyroid problems, immune issues, medications including birth control pills, stress, nutrient deficiencies, and many other reasons. What are some natural suggestions for clients with hair loss? Some simple, natural suggestions for your client include encouraging them to maintain a healthy diet that focuses on fresh, whole foods and to avoid refined or processed foods. Fruits and vegetables provide an abundance of colorful, protective antioxidants and other phytonutrients; healthy fats and oils such as from avocados and nuts, and omega-3 fatty acids from cold-water fish, help regulate sebum production and reduce inflammation in the follicles; high-quality protein provides key amino acids that help ensure the developing hair shaft is strong; and drinking plenty of water, green tea, or herbal teas will help flush out waste byproducts from the follicles.

PRP one of many new hair-loss therapies

Question: Is there a natural approach to hair restoration? Answer: The days of unnatural-looking surgical transplantations are long gone, as men and women now have many options at their disposal to safely and effectively treat all kinds of hair loss. They are now replaced by therapies ranging from vitamins to minimally-invasive, natural-looking hair transplantation. One new and exciting therapy is the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). This involves drawing a patients own blood and spinning it down to isolate the plasma that contains platelets and growth factors. This blood product is then injected into the areas of the scalp where there is hair loss or thinning. When combined with the use of a micro-needling instrument, this treatment has been shown to invigorate miniaturized and damaged follicles, and lead to hair growth.
