Hairloss and thinning hair can be devastating and demoralising to women of all ages

I’d forgotten that I’d been a Schwarzkopf brand ambassador a few years ago for their hair loss product myself so this is a short clip of me from their ad campaign back in the day.
.
I am posting about hairloss today as one of my young women clients was very concerned at the amount of hair she was losing.
I did a lot of research and consulted a trichologist with her. One in London I can highly recommend if you need one esp as she looked at the person holistically. She was reassuring and super-helpful.
.
Here are some suggestions to help prevent further hair loss.
.
Never brush or use a tangle teaser when hair is wet as it is more elastic when wet and can stretch and break off more easily.
.
Never pull hair back tightly with thin hair elastic bands, always softer thicker ties and loosely.
.
Use natural shampoos and conditioners, .
Use as little direct heat( dryers, tongs, straightening irons) as possible.
.
Don’t massage the scalp where there is hairloss, it will make it worse not better.
.
If colouring try to use natural hair colour products, if bleaching ask your colourist for the lowest possible peroxide % in the mix
And never let your colourist over colour or overlap the colour each time. Leave as long as possible between appts to allow for root regrowth.
.
Hair loss can happen at any age post pregnancy, menopause, at times of severe stress or trauma (and of course with chemo). Also from lack of iron (anaemia) lack of vit D, over- exercising, underactive thyroid, lack of vit B , autoimmune disease, dramatic weightloss, PCOS and hormonal inbalances.
.
Please have a full blood test to check if you do have vitamin or mineral deficiences and you can then supplement. If possible include a hormone check too.

Remember the mind is a powerful tool and positivity is key.

The tonal colour of your hair can lift and illuminate your face. 
Or can drain if wrong.
It's so important to make sure your blonde tones do work for you. 
It's not about how blonde you are. Creamy tones are best. Never brassy or yellow.
.
Today I'm wearing:
Snakeskin jeans this season.
Cashmere sweater #M&S last year
Studded trainers last year
Westie x bichon @misslucy_lou 9 years old! .

Hoping that the baby doesn't come early!  @chanelnott 
As we get older the creamy tones of blonde hair are so important as hair colour should compliment, brighten and enhance your facial skin tones. .

Loving my July haircut with @andyatagency Thank you xx

Loving my July haircut with @andyatagency Thank you xx.

My last haircut till September. My hairdresser Andy's client sitting next to me at the salon said she had dress envy. So sharing with you that my white lace dress came from Zara last summer and was on sale too. 
Btw I've always found that for both myself and often for my lady clients age 60plus shorter haircuts that frame the face, often at jawline length, can act as an instant facelift helping us look 10 years younger.

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London


Excited for the press preview of Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A. . . . . .

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London. Frida was a unique style icon with her monobrow which she enhanced with makeup, red lips and flowers in her hair. Even with lifelong ill health and adversity she remained extraordinarily stylish in her image.

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London.

Frida was beset by health problems throughout her life from contracting Polio as a child to injuries sustained in a car accident which affected her to her early death.
However she remained stoic and stylish all through her pain…

1933 Self-portrait Frida Kahlo exhibition Making herself up @vamuseum London. Frida's mono-brow and facial hair were not the beauty norms even at that time. She used an eyebrow pencil in Ebony to accentuate her brows and Revlon '"everything's rosy" lipstick  and red nail varnish.
