My hair was my main attraction. I had thick, long shiny hair. Everybody complemented me about it. Then one day I started noticing that my hair was falling out and I was thinning on the top of my head. I started to get anxious and knew I had to go see my doctor. It took me two weeks before I could get an appointment. That was the longest two weeks in my life. I did not know what was going on and I was scared that all my hair was going to fall out. While I was waiting for my doctor’s appointment I researched on the web for reasons why women lose their hair. I knew that this was not a solution but it would be informative. Only a doctor’s care could determine why I was having hair loss.
In my search I found a lot of reasons why women lose their hair. It could be from stress, hormones, medications, dieting and even illness. I thought to myself the only thing I could be suffering from was stress. I wasn’t on any medications or dieting. As far as an illness I haven’t had any changes going on in my body besides the hair loss.
I went to my doctor’s appointment. He told me that he would have to run some tests before he could diagnose me, because there are different things that can cause you to lose your hair. I went through the tests and waited anxiously for the results. I went back to see my doctor for the diagnosis. He said I have telogen effluvium, which is a temporary hair loss. The tests he took ruled out all other conditions and diseases. At that moment I felt so relieved. My doctor asked me if I have been stressed lately or did I go through any trauma. I told him that about a month ago I was in a car accident. My doctor said that could be the reason why I am losing my hair. My doctor’s advice was not to worry and eventually my hair would grow back in about six to eight months. It’s been six months and my hair has fully grown back. I was amazed at how trauma could affect your body. Luckily my experience was curable.
There are so many reasons why women lose their hair. When this happens it puts you in a panic. Fortunately most of the reasons why you lose your hair can be treated. You just have to find out what is causing it by going to a doctor. Most important is getting treatment right away. The longer you wait could result in your hair not growing back. The minute you see a change in your hair is a good time to see your doctor.

  1. The best natural way to treat scars is to apply Vitamin E directly on the scar itself. This will help in producing more

    collagen (protein) and when new collagen is produced, new cell growth is accelerated to fade away your scars. Taking Vitamin

    E orally does not help so much because very little of the goodness is distributed to the skin and face. Go for serum or

    creams which shows very high concentration of natural Vitamin E as the ingredient. Make sure they are no chemical substitute

    which may cause unwanted side effects.

    One such product you may try is Natur E scar serum (which i found to be a wonderful product that works). It is a natural

    product containing 28000 iu of Vitamin E, hence safe of side effects - yet it works. You can find out more on
