Female hair loss

Female hair loss is a very sensitive subject, but one that needs to be addressed. If you are experiencing it yourself, know that you are not alone: I suffer from it, my mother suffers from it, and so do roughly 75 percent of my female clients. No matter how you look at it, it is real and it is there. It is better to be informed and battle it early than to ignore it and hope that your hair is going to grow back. Fortunately, there are many options to consider if you are suffering from hair loss or thinning hair. I know that I won't cover them all, but I will attempt to leave you better equipped after reading this article.

First of all, genetics plays the biggest role in your fate when it comes to hair loss or thinning hair. Start looking at your genetic line on your mother's side, specifically your mother's father. If your maternal grandfather was bald, chances are you are going to have an issue. Sadly, if you notice thinning hair on yourself already, you really are up against a wall. The good news is that there are products available to help you keep what you have got, but you have to start now.

Stop giving me static

We bundle ourselves and our kids up to leave the house this time of year only to be left with bad hat head and even worse static cling! It's that time of year - it's so cold we all really need our hats on to keep warm. But hat hair isn't quite the look we were going for when we left the house was it? Fortunately there are a few tricks of the trade to prevent static in your hair. Here are my top three.

Ask Gina - Common questions get answered

How do you know when it's time for a new style or maybe even a new hairdresser?

I think this can be a tricky situation. Personally, I always let my clients know that they can and need to tell me if they are unhappy. You have to communicate with your stylist. If you are unhappy with your hair or you want change, you should voice that to them. I do think your stylist should also be checking in with you and suggesting changes every now and again to keep your look updated. You should feel amazing when you leave the salon with your hair, how it looks and feels. You also should leave the salon knowing you had a great experience and feel that you want to go back. If either of those things are not true for you than you need a new hairstyle and/or a new hairdresser!

Get Ginafied

Do you know what you can do to completely change your look in an instant? Get bangs! Not only is this the hottest new fall/winter 2011 trend, but it is the fastest and easiest thing you can do to spruce up your look.

So often I hear "I really want a change, but I don't want more layers and I don't want to lose the length." Those boundaries leave zero options for your stylist, and what she is going to do is just give you a trim. You are going to leave the salon with the same hairstyle you walked in with. But there is one thing you can do for a huge change without losing any length, and that my friends is bangs.
