If you’re a savvy shopper, you do plenty of online research and you’ve probably read quite a few Wen hair care reviews. One of the most common Wen hair care complaints you’ve most likely read about, that relate to the product itself, is hair loss. This poses quite a big problem though, because there are plenty of reasons why people start to lose hair, seemingly suddenly. I’ll point out the most common reasons of hair loss and how they may or may not relate to the Wen hair care complaints you’ve read.
Pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, no longer taking birth control pills, thyroid problems will all cause your hormones to go a little crazy. This hormonal imbalance can cause hair loss. What makes it extremely difficult to diagnose, is the fact that it can take up to three months before your hair starts to fall out. It’s not always easy to link something that changes your body today to something that happened months earlier. Unfortunately, it usually takes another three months before the problem solves itself and by that time you’re already trying everything you can think of to stop your hair from falling out. So instead of buying every commercial hair growth product known to man and throwing out that new Wen shampoo you recently started using, make a doctor’s appointment and let him or her check for hormonal imbalances. It’ll save you money and a lot of stress related hair pulling.
Alopecia, diabetes, telogen effluvium, lupus can all cause hair loss. Some unfortunately permanent due to scarring of the hair follicles (alopecia), some temporary due to some kind of physical or emotional shock (telogen effluvium). If you think you might be suffering from any of these disease make an appointment with your doctor.
With all the slim supermodels they shove down our throats on a daily basis, it’s no wonder many of us have eating disorders. Hair loss is one the symptoms of anorexia, but you really don’t need to suffer from an eating disorder like that to notice your hair is thinning and falling out. Every week it seems there’s a new fad crash diet promising you to lose pounds quickly. What these diets never mention is how many vital nutrients your body will be missing out on if you follow it. Especially lack in protein and iron will wreck havoc on your hair. But, hey, at least you’ll be thin right? Right?
As mentioned earlier, some women will experience hair loss from taking birth control pills. But other medication can also be the reason you have to keep plucking hair from your hair brush. Antidepressants, gout and arthritis medication and even drugs to treat high blood pressure or heart problems can all cause hair loss. As these are all important for your health, and prescribed by a doctor, you’re more likely to blame sudden hair loss on that new Wen cleansing conditioner you started using than on the heart medication you started taking a week ago. Needless to say, keep using the drugs if your doctor recommends them, just realize that the shampoo may be harmless.
Something as simple as a ringworm infection on your scalp can make your hair fall out. Treat the infection and your hair will grow back. Considering that ringworm is a fungal infection it’s pretty easy to treat with an antifungal treatment, even with natural remedies like coconut oil.
Do you color or bleach your hair? Do you spend an hour daily straightening out every curl or curling ever straight lock of hair? Well then before you jump on the Wen hair care complaints bandwagon claiming your hair started to fall out once you started using Wen cleansing conditioners, think about how you (mis)treated your hair in the past. Even frequent blow-drying at extreme heat or brushing obsessively can cause your hair to become extremely fragile causing it to break and fall out. Luckily, if you didn’t jump on that bandwagon and kept on using Wen, the Wen hair care products will actually help heal your damaged hair and make it stronger.
As you can see, there are many reasons why people lose hair. Keep this in mind when you come across Wen hair care complaints telling you not to buy the product because it made their hair fall out without supplying more info on their general health. Yes, they could’ve had some kind of allergic reaction to the product which caused their hair loss, but honestly that could’ve happened with any product and it doesn’t mean it will happen to you.
