Hair loss is a normal condition that develops due to hormonal, genetic, stress and many similar reasons. But it can be alarming when you start noticing a lot of hair falling out while brushing your hair. It is normal to lose up to 100 strands of hair a day. For the loss of more than this amount of hair, it is absolutely necessary to consult a specialist. Hair loss may develop gradually over the years or may occur suddenly. Depending on the underlying cause, it can be temporary or permanent. There are many physiological and psychological factors among the causes of hair loss.
What is Hair Loss?
A healthy scalp contains an average of 100,000 hairs. Adult individuals may experience 100 to 150 hair loss per day, depending on washing and combing. Hair loss may occur due to hormonal factors, exposure to chemicals, genetic predisposition, psychological disorders, medications and seasonal reasons. Under normal conditions, it is considered normal for hair loss to last for 2 months. However, if this period exceeds 2 months, it may be a sign of serious diseases. In this case, it is necessary to seek help from a specialist immediately for treatment. Hair starts to fall out 3-4 after the triggering factors that cause hair loss, and it stops within 6-12 months after treatment.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Healthy hair strands have a current life cycle. Each strand of hair lives on the scalp for 4-6 years and then begins to fall out. If there are too many strands of hair on the brush when we wash our hair, if hair is always on the hand after washing and drying, this situation should be taken seriously. The causes of hair loss can be seen due to many factors. After these reasons are determined, the hair can regain its old healthy state with appropriate treatment methods.
The most common cause of hair loss is an inherited condition that occurs with aging. This condition is called androgenic alopecia, male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness. Mesotherapy, PRP treatments and other supplementary treatments started at an early age slow down the rate of shedding. Hair transplant treatment may be required as baldness occurs with age. Hair transplantation is performed by the specialist physicians of Fizyoestet Hair clinic for hair loss due to genetic factors.
2nd Skin Problems
In general, hair loss caused by skin problems includes disease and lifelessness of the scalp. If the scalp is severely affected in cases such as psoriasis, eczema, fungus, lichen disease, dandruff, and excessive oiliness, hair loss is inevitable.
Vitamin 3 and Mineral Deficiency
Vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B12, vitamin D, folic acid, zinc, iron and biotin that are deficient in the blood can cause hair loss. Hair loss can be prevented by supplementing them.
If factors such as delayed menstruation, hair growth, excessive acne formation, and increased weight gain in some people lead to hair loss, hair loss due to hormonal reasons can be mentioned.
What is Good for Hair Loss?
Hair loss treatment can be done in many ways. These are listed as follows:
