What is hair loss?

Hair shedding is a natural process. Every day, anywhere from 50 to 100 hairs are lost and that’s completely normal in order to regenerate hair. However, in some cases, this number can go up and lead to baldness or hair loss.

What are the main reasons for hair loss?

Stress:

When under stress, the human body works differently than normal, and as a result, hair is also affected by it. If you are losing your hair because of stress, worry not; hair lost because of stress usually comes back after the stress has resided.

Anemia:

Anemia can lead to extreme hair loss. Anemia, in the most simplistic terms, can be described as a decrease in the total amount of red blood cells in your blood. Decreasing the blood cells causes iron deficiency. Without iron in the body, hair cannot be feeded grown properly and it begins to fall out. Although it is easily treatable, one should go to the doctor as soon as possible when anemia is present.

Thyroid Diseases:

The thyroid gland is responsible for producing certain hormones. When it starts to work less, it is called “hypothyroidis,” and it is called “hyperthyroidism” when it starts to work more than necessary.

In both cases, the metabolism starts to work differently. Vitamin and iron deficiency is the most common problematic result of these two diseases. As a result of such deficiencies, hair starts to fall out. However, these hair problems are treatable, especially hypothyroidis.

Alopecia: This is a disease called “alopecia areata.”With this disease, regional hair loss is common, with the regions approximately 3 cm in diameter.

Drug Usage:

In some cases, drug usage affects the body which results in insufficient vitamin and iron in the hair. When drug usage ends, hair loss will probably end as well.

Vitamin deficiency

Hair roots can’t survive without vitamins. Without vitamins, hair will start to fall out or weaken.

How can you prevent hair loss?

It is important to realize the reason for the hair loss. If there’s a medical condition that leads to hair falling out, it should be treated immediately. If the condition is not immediately medically urgent, PRP or Hair Mesotherapy can take place and hair loss may be prevented.

If it’s too late to take preventive measures, what should I do?

If hair loss was sudden and unexpected, you can always get help from modern methods. Under sterilized conditions, you can get a FUE treatment which restores the hair in a very natural way.
