We all experience some amount of hair loss every day and losing up to 100 hairs per day is normal. Sometimes you may end up with bald spots if you are a man and in the case of women, you may find the hair on top of your head thinning slowly. Although this is quite common, it can be tough to live with as it may change how you look.
Since it is not seen as a life-threatening disease, doctors often disregard it. It is just sad because hair loss can cause serious distress in people with some psychological effects also. Also, in some cases, hair loss may be a result of some medical treatment, like that of cancer treatment drugs. But here hair loss is temporary. Few hair loss treatments are available and by getting in touch with an expert dermatologist, you will get a better idea regarding them.
Major Symptoms of Hair loss
The symptoms are most commonly observed as thinning, in which you can notice hair falling out or like shedding in which clumps of hair fall out. Of the several types of hair loss, the most common type of hair loss which is inherited hair loss for men tend to show up as receding hairline on the front and top of the head.
Women with this condition usually have gradual thinning throughout the scalp, but mostly on the top part of the head. These falling out can cause loss of self-esteem and feel unattractive especially in women and teens.
Causes of Hair Loss
Losing a lot of hair, more than normal, can be due to several reasons. The important one being genetics. Other causes can be diseases, stress, medicines, injury, and aging or poor hair care.
As said earlier, genetics is an important factor. It is usually called as male-pattern, or female-pattern hair loss and the medical term used is androgenetic alopecia. In this type, your genes affect your hair growth. They trigger sensitivity to a set of hormones called androgens which cause hair follicles to shrink.
Few other common causes of hair loss include:
- Ringworm of the scalp, this is common in children.
- Mental dress or physical stress could be recent surgery, illness or even high fever.
- Hair styling products. Hair loss can be caused by pulling your hair back too tightly or wearing tight braids or ponytails.
- This is natural. When you start aging your hair becomes weak and breaks more easily, and they do not grow back as much.
- Poor nutrition, lack of protein or iron in the diet can be a major reason too.
- Thyroid diseases.
Hair loss can be prevented to a large extent especially if the cause isn’t genetics. Many people use lots of hair products and chemicals to make hair look good; little do we realize how harmful they are. You can follow few things which will prevent hair damage and hair loss like:
