I am a 24 year old girl with long hair. Currently, the ends of my hair are splitting and it appears to be getting thin. am I experiencing hair loss? Kindly advise.
Though split ends are not necessarily a sign of hair loss, without proper treatment, your hair may appear thinner and damaged. Split ends can make it appear like thinning hair for a few reasons. First, when the hair shaft splits, one thicker hair will appear like two thinner hairs. Improper hair treatment will also cause breakage and damage to the hair, making it appear less “healthy”.
Be sure to use both shampoo and conditioner regularly and see your stylist about a haircut and best practices to treat your hair to prevent damage to your hair. It is also best to get a semi-regular treatment to remove split ends before they splay too far down the hair.
