Elle – Why we’re losing it

‘Our day-to-day life is overloaded now more
than ever, which means our cortisol [stress] levels
are often raised,’ argues Guy Parsons,
founder of My Hair Doctor. ‘The problem is,
hair loss normally occurs some three to four
months after the trigger, so you don’t know the
harm you might be doing until later on.’
Simple things like using the wrong
shampoo can also lead to hair loss. ‘Unblocked
follicles are key to hair growth,
but heavier products that contain silicones
can cause blockage,’ says Parsons.
This is why it’s important to treat
your scalp like an extension of your skin.
