HAIR LOSS

Hair lose is a tragic and emotionally damaging and painful experience.  Every individual requires treatment differently. Hair loss is many a time warning signal that our body is deteriorating or disease is incoming. So it should be taken seriously and do what the nature intends us to do.

Most people lose anywhere from 50 to 100 of hair each day, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. On the days when hair is washed, people can lose up to 250 strands. The hair on the scalp is growing. Hair grows about 6 inches a year for most people.

Although hair loss may seem like a more prominent problem in men, women are nearly as likely to lose, or have thinning, hair.
Women when waking up in the morning may have a usually large amount of hair on pillow during hair loss. When they comb hair more than normal will be left in the comb.

Like a garden,a normal hair cycle should lead to a product, which is the hair Growth cycles are important because when we have hair loss it should regenerate. It’s a very dynamic place and anything that can get the cycle off can cause hair loss.

Men’s hair tends to recede from the forehead or the crown of the head, women have thinning on the top third to one half of the scalp. Women may see a part that is gradually becoming wider or see more of their scalp than normal when their hair is lose. Even women’s style and care for hair can cause hair loss.

Hair is made up of a protein called keratin that is produced in hair follicles in the outer layer of skin. As follicles produce new hair cells, old cells are being pushed out through the surface of the skin at the rate of about six inches a year. The hair you can see is actually a string of dead keratin cells. The average adult head has about 100,000 to 150,000 hairs and loses up to 100 of them a day.

Luckily, most causes of hair loss can be stopped or treated. The earlier treatment begins, the better the outcome.  Hair loss is harder to treat when a person has a lost more hair.

WHAT CAUSES HAIR LOSS?

The reasons for hair loss are many. Some individuals have hair follicles which are programmed to have a shorter growth period than others.

 

When hair loss begins suddenly, the cause may be due to illness, diet, medicine or childbirth. If hair loss is gradual and becomes more noticeable with each passing year, a person may have hereditary hair loss.

 

Medicines you take, allergies you have, and whether you have been dieting may be the reasons for hair loss. Women should be asked about their periods, pregnancies, and menopause.

 

Involution alopecia is a natural condition in which the hair gradually thins with age. More hair follicles go into the resting phase, and the remaining hairs become shorter and fewer in numbers.

 

Hereditary thinning or baldness (also called androgenic alopecia): This is the most common cause of hair loss. It affects men and women. Genes, from both male and female parents, may influence a person's predisposition to male or female pattern baldness. When men have hereditary hair loss, they often get a receding hairline. Many men see bald patches, especially on the top of the head. Women, on the other hand, tend to keep their hairline. They see noticeably thinning hair. The first sign of hair loss for many women is a widening of scalp part.

 

Alopecia areata: this is an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune means the body attacks itself. In this case, the body attacks its own hair. This causes smooth, round patches of hair loss on the scalp and other areas of the body. Alopecia areata often starts suddenly and causes patchy hair loss in children and young adults. This condition may result in complete baldness (alopecia totalis). People with alopecia areata are often in excellent health. Most people see their hair re-grow.

 

Alopecia universalis causes all body hair to fall out, including the eyebrows, eyelashes, and pubic hair.

 

Cicatricial (scarring) alopecia: This rare disease develops in otherwise healthy people. The disease destroys a person’s hair follicles. Scar tissue forms where the follicles once were, so the hair cannot re-grow. As it progresses, the hair loss radiates out from the center of the scalp. The affected scalp becomes smooth and shiny. When hair loss occurs quickly, the person may have tingling, burning, pain, or itching on the scalp. Treatment tries to stop the inflammation, which destroys the hair follicles.

 

Underlying  Disease:  Hair loss can be the first sign of a disease. By treating the disease, hair loss often can be stopped or reversed.

  • Illness: Significant hair loss can occur after an illness. A major surgery, high fever, severe infection, or even the flu can cause hair loss.
  • Cancer treatments: Radiation therapy and chemotherapy can cause hair loss. This hair loss is often temporary, but it can cause great distress.
  • Ringworm of the scalp: This disease is contagious and common in children. Without effective treatment, ringworm can cause balding.
  • Trichotillomania (trick-uh-til-uh-mey-knee-uh): This medical disorder causes people to repeatedly pull out their own hair. They often feel a constant urge to pull out the hair on the scalp. Some sufferers say they feel compelled to pull out their eyelashes, nose hairs, eyebrows, and other hairs on their bodies.
  • Medical conditions. There are a wide range of conditions that can bring on hair loss, the most common being pregnancy, thyroid disorders, and anemia. Others include autoimmune diseases, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and skin conditions such as psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis, Other reasons for hair loss include extreme stress; physical trauma like surgery or intense illness; dramatic weight loss over a short period of time; and taking too much Vitamin A.

Hormones and stress

  • Hormones, such as abnormal levels of androgens (male hormones normally produced by both men and women)
  • Giving birth:
  • Menopause:
  • Stress:

Dieting and poor nutrition

  • Weight loss: Some people see hair loss after losing more than 15 pounds.
  • Vitamin A: Too much vitamin A can cause hair loss.
  • Protein: When the body does not get enough protein,
  • Iron: Not getting enough iron can lead to hair loss.
  • Cosmetic procedures, such as shampooing too often, perms, bleaching, and dyeing hair can contribute to overall hair thinning by making hair weak and brittle. Tight braiding, using rollers or hot curlers, and running hair picks through tight curls can also damage and break hair.

Medicine

  • Some prescription medicines can cause hair loss. Drugs, including chemotherapy drugs used in cancer treatment, blood thinners, beta-adrenergic blockers used to control blood pressure, and birth control pills, can cause temporary hair loss.

Hair care
Improper washing, drying, and combing - Your hairstyle and even some of the products you use on your hair can cause hair loss.
                 

HOW TO TREAT HAIR LOSS?

Beginning treatment as soon as possible after the hair loss begins gives the best results, because prolonged androgenic alopecia may destroy many of the hair follicles. Stopping treatment will result in the hair loss resuming if the androgens aren't kept in check in some other way.

The effectiveness of these agents and methods vary from person to person, but many women have found that using these treatments have made a positive difference in their hair and their self-esteem. 

ALLOPATHIC METHOD

 

Minoxidil (Rogaine)

Minoxidil - applying a solution of minoxidil directly to the scalp could also stimulate hair growth. Rogaine 2%, minoxidil seems to be more effective for women suffering from diffuse androgenetic alopecia than it is for men. But 5% minoxidil solution is significantly more effective in both retaining and regrowing hair in women with androgenetic alopecia than the 2% solution.
Androgen Receptor Inhibitors

  • Spironolactone (Aldactone)
    Spironolactone acts as an anti-androgen in two ways. First, it slows down the production of androgens in the adrenal glands and ovaries. Second, it blocks the action of androgens in part by preventing dihydrotestosterone (DHT) from binding to its androgenetic receptor.
  • Cimetidine (Tagamet)
    Cimetidine also has a fairly powerful anti-androgenic effect and has been shown to block dihydrotestosterone from binding the follicle receptor sites.
    Cimetidine has been used to treat excess facial hair growth (hirsutism) in women and has shown promising results in studies of women with androgenic alopecia

Cyproterone Acetate

 

Cyproterone acetate is prescribed for severe hirsutism in woman and for androgenetic alopecia in women. Cyproterone acetate exerts its effects by blocking the binding of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) to its receptors. Cyproterone Acetate with Ethinyloestradiol (Diane 35, Diane 50) is also available for special cases and give good results

 

Estrogen and Progesterone

Estrogen and progesterone pills and creams may be an effective treatment for women with androgenetic alopecia who are going through menopause or whose estrogen and/or progesterone are lacking for other reasons. Only low-androgen index birth control pills should be used to treat hair loss.

 

Ketoconazole (Nizoral)

These anti-androgenic effects can be used to help treat hair loss. Nizoral shampoo contains 2% ketoconazole and is prescribed not only for the treatment of scalp conditions, but also in combination with other treatments for androgenetic alopecia

 

Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar)

Finasteride helps slow hair loss in most (about 88%) men. It helps stimulate hair re-growth in many (about 66%) men. The drug finasteride inhibits the enzyme 5-alpha reductase in the hair follicle, thereby inhibiting the production of follicle-harming dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT shrinks hair follicles and makes it difficult for healthy hair to survive.
It works quite well to prevent hair loss and trigger regrowth for most men

 

Corticosteroid: If hair loss is caused by inflammation in body, apply corticosteroid into scalp. This can help stop the inflammation that happens when a person has alopecia areata.

HOMEOPATHIC METHOD

Healing forces are present within the body; you have to cooperate with the body's restorative powers. Many go on trying many various medicines- spend lot and lots of money but never get hair on scalp. Long-term use of drugs never gets people better, but slowly deteriorates and hair fall goes on.
