Whether you are experiencing mild thinning or total hair loss, solutions are available to give you a full head of hair that will increase your confidence, helping you to feel and look your best.
Who is at Risk for Hair Loss?
Both men and women are at risk of experiencing some degree of hair loss. Men typically experience male-pattern baldness as they age, which results in complete hair loss. Women, on the other hand, tend to experience even thinning across the scalp. There are many reasons that an individual may experience hair loss.
Factors That Contribute to Hair Loss
Genetics tends to be the main cause of hair loss. This is especially true for male-pattern baldness in men. However, this isn't the only cause of hair loss in men and women. Excessive levels of androgens in the body can cause hair follicles to shrink and prevent the growth of new hair. This can happen in both men and women. For women, it tends to happen after menopause because their levels of estrogen drop, which then allows testosterone to have a greater effect on the body, including hair growth.
Health conditions and side effects of medications can also be a factor in hair loss. For instance, pregnancy, thyroid issues, and chemotherapy treatments are just a few examples of medications and illnesses that can cause an individual to lose their hair. In many cases, hair loss that falls into this category is temporary. Normal hair growth typically resumes once health has been restored and treatments stop.
As you know, stress can take a toll on the body, including hair growth. Excessive levels of stress for long periods of time can result in temporary hair loss. Severe trauma to the scalp and hair follicles can cause the follicles to be unable to produce new strands of hair. Finally, a diet lacking in essential nutrients to carry out crucial processes in the body and support healthy hair can cause growth to slow or stop until the required nutrients are restored.
Importance of Seeking Hair Loss Treatment
Attempting to cover balding or thin spots can be a huge source of frustration and take a toll on your self-confidence.
