Most people style their hair daily and there is nothing detrimental with using hair products or styling tools. However, with everything else, the key is moderation.
Heat and chemicals are notorious for weakening the hair causing it to break and fall out. It is often a combination of treatments such as keratin, coloring, and blow-drying that does the most damage. To best protect your tresses, try not to over-wash your hair, especially with harsh shampoo/ conditioner, style too frequently, or dye your hair too often. If your hair loss is occurring from external damage caused by styling, it will simply break, and you won’t see those club-shaped telogen bulbs at the ends. To test your hair for damage, simply take a small handful of about fifty strands and pull gently. Then check to see whether the hair that comes out has bulbs on the ends. This will tell you whether or not you need to take lengths to protect and revive your hair. To avoid this issue altogether, avoid using appliances that overheat your hair. Set your hair dryer on cool and minimize your use of flat irons. Do not dye your hair more than one or two shades passed its normal color. It simply comes to the more severe the color change, the more chemicals you require, which can destroy hair molecules.
If you have experienced a sudden onset of hair loss or have balding spots, you should consult with your physician as soon as possible to rule out any underlying medical conditions that may be causing your hair loss.
