I Have Black Hair.  Why Is My Hair Thinning?

Thinning hair is a common problem amongst black women who regularly use braids and weaves. How your hair grows is largely dictated by genetics, however many black women experience hair loss through ageing, stress or as a side effect from medication. You should consult your doctor if you are worried about your hair loss. Actress Jada Pinkett Smith recently disclosed that she had taken to cutting her hair short and wearing turbans to disguise her hair loss, which she puts down to stress.

Should I Stop Washing My Afro Hair So Much?

Many black women try to avoid washing their hair too much when it begins to thin, however when you shampoo your hair, the hair follicles that have already become detached from the skin simply fall out as you disturb them. On average you lose 100 hairs a day from your head, this can be through brushing, shampooing or generally playing with your hair.

Will My Hair Grow Back?

You can encourage new hair growth by massaging your head to stimulate blood flow in the scalp. We would suggest that you avoid and hot oil or conditioning treatments and avoid tension on the scalp such as braiding.

We would also suggest taking a course of hair growth supplements and increasing your protein and zinc intake within your daily diet. A well-balanced nutritional diet and a general good state of health can all have a positive effect on hair growth and hair loss.
