TYPES OF HAIR LOSS

Androgenic alopecia: This is the most common form of hair loss and is also referred to as male-pattern or female-pattern baldness. Hormones and genetics seem to play the main role here. Male-pattern baldness is hereditary, from either side of the family, and can even skip generations. It tends to occur on the crown and at the temples and when these patches join together, the top of the hair is left completely bald.  For women, the hair thins initially on the frontal area and the crown and moves down the sides of the he, while the back of the he remains dense with hair. This is hereditary and tends to affect women mostly after menopause.

Toxic alopecia: This type of hair loss seems to occur following physical or emotional stress. Things such as illness, scalp infections, sudden loss of weight, surgery, drugs, and pregnancy/childbirth can cause this type of hair loss.

Alopecia areata: This is actually a skin disorder which causes hair on the affected skin areas to fall out. It is usually the scalp or beard and is thought to have autoimmune causes. This type of hair loss seems to be most common in young people. The hair usually grows back.

Alopecia universalis or totalis: All body hair is lost, from everywhere, including eyebrows and eyelashes. Hair follicles are not destroyed; the inability to grow hair back is psychological and getting hair to grow back again is not easy.

Trichotillomania: This is hair loss due to hair pulling, a habit or condition that can be corrected with treatment.

Scarring alopecia: This is hair loss that occurs at the site of scars or damaged areas such as burns or skin cancer.




DAY TO DAY CARE

There are a number of things you can do to take good care of your hair:

Don’t subject your hair to frequent, constant heating and drying procedures.Minimize the usage of hair dryers, hot curlers, hot brushes, hair straighteners, hair fasteners, and chemical treatments and your hair will last longer.

Slow down on the dyeing. Never color your hair more often than 6 to 8 weeks and try for semi-coverage rather than full dyeing.

  • Wash hair regularly with mild shampoo and be gentle with your hair.
  • Avoid brushing wet hair.
  • Avoid rubbing hair vigorously with a towel after washing it.
  • Healthy diet and reducing stress in most cases can be of help with preventing or minimizing hair loss.
