You feel that your hair is thin, but you don’t want to go to a hospital for an examination…. If you have such a problem, we recommend a self-check.
Check your hair loss with a do-it-yourself “whirlpool shot!”
You cannot check your whirlpool by looking in a mirror. Hospitals and salons use microscopes or take pictures with special digital cameras.
When self-checking at home, you can use a matching mirror, but there is a more convenient way. It is easiest if a family member does it for you, but if you do it alone, you can also use a matching mirror and take pictures with a common digital camera.
At this time, please make sure that your hair is not in the way so that it is easy to see while using a hair clip to secure the area you want to photograph. You can also manage this on your computer to check for thinning hair.
And check the number of hairs, because hair loss during shampooing can be dangerous too!
Shampooing is said to cause the most hair loss. Some people who are concerned about thinning hair even say that they do not wash their hair because it falls out.
If you are shampooing at the sink, clean up around it before you start washing. Towel dry your hair and let it fall to the floor.
Simply count this number and compare it to the guideline. If you find more than 20 hairs falling out even after rinsing the shampoo, you are at high risk for thinning hair.
Hair Condition Check for Thinning Hair
- Effective use of “whirlpool photography
Whirlpool photography allows you to see where hair tends to thin. It is also recommended to photograph the hairline. Also, by photographing the scalp as closely as possible, the condition of the scalp can be ascertained. It will be easier to consider how to deal with the problem if dirt accumulation, redness, rash, etc. are known.
- Application of checking hair loss during shampooing
When shampooing, check the number of hairs that fall out by towel-drying. However, at this time, check the roots of the hair that has fallen out and even the thickness of the hair. There are various causes of thinning hair, and the causes can be clarified by the condition of the hair follicles. Once this cause is identified, it is easier to consider how to deal with the problem.
As mentioned above, we recommend that you use the thinning hair self-check to check other items as well. Understand the causes and take action as soon as possible.
