(ThyBlackMan.comPeople tend to forget the importance of good and healthy hair when all you need to style yourself in the morning is a dash of hair gel. In truth, an attractive hairstyle depends very much on how healthy your hair actually is. Hair issues and disorders are more common than you think, from the most feared hair loss to the annoying dandruff problems, but have you ever considered a sane and healthy way to tackle down those problems? It’s important to take good care of your hair because they are an indicator of health and what is happening inside your own body. So, take a good look in the mirror and check if you are suffering from any of the four most common hair issues in the USA.

Hair Loss

Hair loss, or hair baldness pattern, is a lot more common than you might expect. Over 50% of men in their 50s or over might suffer from a form of baldness. This is unfortunately very common among young people too. Typically hair loss is caused by a hormonal imbalance that forces your testosterones to morph into a hormone that attacks your hair follicles. This can be easily treated with propecia tablets that are designed to reduce the negative effects of the morphed hormone. Additionally, another common trigger for hair loss is stress, which can’t be cured with any pill. Destroying stress means changing your lifestyle completely, but this is often a fair price to pay for a healthier you!

Hair Pulling Disorder

Hair pulling disorder, or Trichotillomania, relates to the urge to pull out your own hair. This is a chronic psychological condition that affects around 2.5 million Americans. The hair pulling disorder can cause permanent hair loss, which makes it a serious, debilitating disease. As this is a mental illness, the treatment tends to focus on cognitive behavioral therapy and counseling, to learn new healthy habits while a therapist can help you find out the reason behind your condition.

Scalp Acne

When your skin pores become clogged with dirt and oil, acne occurs. This is the same process for scalp acne, although it can go unnoticed if you have long hair. For men with short hair, scalp acne is not only very annoying, but it can become painful and lead to hair loss in the long term. When the pores are clogged, the hair follicles can become infected if the pores can’t get cleared out. This blockage is often caused by an unhealthy diet or by the excess of styling products, which can make it challenging to treat. Starting with mild shampoo can help reduce the dirt and oil debris on the scalp. However, if the problem continues, you should consult a doctor for further advice.

Dandruff Problems

While dandruff is one of the most common issues when it comes to healthy hair, it is also one of the most ignored. Dandruff is caused by a fungus which lives on the scalp of most healthy adults. While it is generally harmless, it can sometimes grow out of control and start feeding from the oil on your scalp, causing your skin cells to dry out and die. Most people would try to change shampoo or wash their hair regularly to reduce the problem. However it is important to first treat your dandruff issue with a specialist shampoo before moving to a moisturizing shampoo.
