CAUSES OF HAIR LOSS

CAUSES OF HAIR LOSS

The general medical term given for hair loss is alopecia, and it occurs when these hair growth stages are interrupted.

Some hair loss conditions are temporary while others are permanent. For many men and women, their hair loss is due to androgenetic alopecia (male and female pattern baldness), and is driven by three factors – genetics, androgens (male hormones), and age. Genetic hair loss can come from either side of your family and can skip a generation. Hereditary hair loss is quite common, affecting about 50 million men and 30 million women in the U.S. alone.

OTHER CONDITIONS

Other conditions that can disrupt hair growth cycles or even destroy hair follicles include certain medical and scalp conditions, nutritional deficiencies, medications, hormonal imbalances, physical trauma, and even hair care practices and styles. Once hair loss begins, it is commonly a slow, gradual process that may occur in certain areas of the scalp, or all over. Unfortunately, once hair loss is detected by the naked eye, almost 50% of hair in that region has been lost. This is usually when panic sets in, as the person never realized they were losing their hair, until it became noticeable.

 

MANY HAIR LOSS CONDITIONS ARE REVERSIBLE

Simply by removing the causal factor(s) and/or by using nonsurgical methods to stabilize hair loss, improve the quality of the hair and regrow them. Other hair loss disorders cannot be treated nonsurgically due to the degree and permanence of hair loss. In these situations, hair transplant surgery may be considered.
