It is the stuff of fairy tales, all those princesses with their perfect hair. Snow White had sleek black locks and when Rapunzel let down her golden tresses, princes flocked. The fairy godmothers of hair blessed those princesses with crowns of shining glory.
There are a couple of problems from which people suffer that can also cause hair loss. This would be certain diseases such as lupus or diabetes. Since hair loss is one of the body’s ways of signaling that something is wrong, it should not be ignored. Checking with your doctor may help in catching something at an early stage and treatment will be started as early as possible.
Demodetic is the third type of mange, caused by the demodex mite. This type of mange usually occurs in young dogs in the areas around the face and eyes. Demodetic mange is very treatable with Amitraz dip. This is the treatment I used for my dog Oreo. Oreo is a stray puppy that I found and subsequently adopted as my own. He had a lot of children with hair loss around his lower back and tail area. I visited a local Feed Store here in my neighborhood.
So before you donate your hair to Locks of Love, you should remember that some hair is unusable and sold or thrown away. Hair that has been weakened by chemical processing and won’t survive the manufacturing process or is sent in wet or moldy is tossed in the trash. Gray hair and hair that’s fewer than 10 inches long or isn’t sent in a braid or pony tail is sold to cover the charities’ over head costs.
I have turned to exercise during times of extreme stress. When I went through a divorce in my first marriage, I turned to riding my bike, which then turned into many years of riding with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Cycling, literally saved me from depths of depression. Being physically active got me in better shape, which in turn gave me better self-esteem and confidence in myself again.
Keep a habit of washing your hair with a mild shampoo and conditioner at least two times a week; make sure that the conditioner is properly rinsed out from your hair. You could also prepare a natural conditioner at home, for this, take curd, amla and shikaki powder and mix them together to make the desired conditioner. Try this conditioner for few weeks, you’ll see positive results. Moreover, a massage like this will ensure a soft and silky hair too.
Apart from telling encouraging stories with bald characters as the heroes, if you have a little girl, you should not be telling them fairytale stories that involve princess with long and lovely hair – at least until your girl’s condition improves. Do not tell her stories of Rapunzel and her long locks of hair.
Another cause of balding is underlying disease, such as diabetes or lupus. Hair loss can be an early indication of disease and is essential that it be paid attention to if just for this reason alone. If this is the case, it is important to catch the disease early. Once the disease is treated, the hair should stop falling out and regrow.
