Learning about hair loss is one of the most important components of any cosmetology program. Your clients will thank you.
Hair loss affects many people. It used to be thought of as a male problem, but we now recognize that both men and women can struggle with hair loss. There are a variety of complex reasons that people may experience hair loss. Some reasons are temporary, and some are not. Preventing hair loss can be easier than trying to cure it once it has happened. As a cosmetologist, you should keep your eyes out for early warning signs, so you can support your clients in maintaining their own beautiful, healthy hair as much as possible.
Here are some of the possible reasons for hair loss:
- Hormonal changes
- Fungal infections
- Thyroid problems
- Lack of nutrition
Proper hair care can make a big difference in maintaining hair because an excess buildup of oil, dirt and products can actually reduce circulation to your follicles, making it more likely that you will lose hair. You can combat this by teaching your clients how to properly care for their hair and recommending high-quality hair care products to them. Here at Elite Academy of Cosmetology, our master instructors will guide you in all these things during your clinic hours that are built into your cosmetology program.
We want you to be successful in your career in cosmetology, which is why we emphasize clinic experience so much. We also teach about business management and technical skills because running a salon is more than just cutting and styling hair. Give us a call today for more information.
