  1. Change Your Style
    You may need to style your hair in a different way to hide your thinning edges. So, if you normally where your hair in a ponytail or puff, try wearing a part and swooping the hair down the sides. Adding bobby pins and clips might help to keep the hair in place. Alternatively, you could visit a professional hair stylist to get a whole new cut.
  2. Deep Condition and Moisturize
    It’s important to maintain healthy hair habits, even if the hair is shedding. Prevent dryness by incorporating a deep conditioning treatment and invest in a good leave-in conditioner and moisturizing product.
  3. Protective Styling
    You could opt for stylish scarves or hats to disguise your hair loss. I love wrapping my hair in a scarf. It takes no time at all, looks fab and means I can protect my hair from the elements.
  4. Nutrition and Exercise
    It’s always important to maintain a healthy diet, drink lots of water and try to get in some exercise. A daily 30-minute walk with the stroller is a great start. Although this type of hair loss is hormonal as opposed to a nutritional deficiency, if you feel you are not getting in all the nutrients you need from the food you eat, you could add in an all-round multivitamin for an additional boost.
  5. Seek Advice
    Always talk to a specialist if you feel your hair loss is excessive, particularly if it is associated with other symptoms, which you may be concerned about.
