Climate and Hair Loss

Laure, 21 - I am from Cameroon, and since moving to England 9 months ago I have been losing my hair. I went to the doctor, who told me that it is my body's reaction to the climate change. The prescription I was given has done nothing to help and I wondered if you have any advice...

Climate change and stress are both factor which can contribute towards drastic hair loss. I suspect that stress has been a major cause in your case. Use a gentle, baby shampoo and use a large toothed comb instead of a brush. Keep your head protected from the cold and avoid any treatments which will aggravate your scalp... no colouring or perming please. I cannot recommend any super cure, you need to be patient and try not to worry - you are not going bald.
