They say that a woman’s hair is her crowning glory, a manifestation of her desirability and femininity. So, how would you feel when you hair starts falling? This is not the normal 50 to 100 strands that you shed off daily, but the more copious hair that are wedged on your brush when you brush or blow dry your hair or those that cleave on your towel or flood the drain when you shampoo. Scary, huh!
The scientific name of hair loss isalopecia. It should be differentiated fromalopecia areatawhich is a skin disease or medical condition where hair falls out in circular patches and could occur on the scalp or any other part of the body. This condition usually reverts to normal or hair re-grows in the affected area spontaneously. What we’re referring to here is the hair loss of the scalp or baldness by other causes that can be reversed by medication and therapy or procedures including a dermastamp therapy.
Hair loss In men
Baldness is usually associated with, but not limited, to men. Women and even children can experience hair loss. With men, hair loss pattern is mostly hereditary, meaning, everyone else in the family have had the same problem. Medical practitioners believe that this is caused by the sensitivity of the hair follicle to dihydrotestosterone hormone (DHT), a male hormone. When there is over abundance of DHT, the hair’s life span is shorter resulting in an abnormal hair growth and thinning hair. A receding hairline or thinning hair on the forehead or from the head’s crown are the physical manifestations of this condition.
Hair loss in women
Unfortunately for women like you, hair loss pattern is not so easy to explain. If you are menopausal or have passed the menopause stage, your hair loss can be caused by a decrease in your female hormones. Other causes of baldness or hair fall on women could be extreme stress, drastic weight loss, major surgery or even pregnancy. It can also be a reaction to medication such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, beta-adrenergic blocking agents or anti-depressants. Unlike men, women don’t show a receding hair line. Your hair loss will be more evident in the thinning of the top part of the scalp. You will notice that when you pull your hair back or part your hair, your scalp will be more conspicuous. check:
