The causes of hair loss in men and women
One of the difficult things many people have to deal with is the loss of their hair. Regardless of the length, the situation can be traumatic, but even more so for those who had long, lustrous hair. It can be embarrassing and depressing to have to try to come to terms with losing your hair. Historically, many men and women had no recourse but to deal with it as best they could.
What causes hair loss in men and women?
Many people normally shed 50 to 100 hairs per day. This typically does not result in noticeable thinning of the scalp’s hair as new hair is growing in at the same time. Hair loss develops and is noticed when this balance of hair growth and shedding is slowed or when the hair follicles are damaged and replaced with scar tissue.
The true causes of hair loss vary in many ways and from person to person, but it is typically attributed to one or more of these factors:
1. Family history (heredity)
- Men/women in the family tend to all be bald after a certain age
2. Hormonal changes
- In women, pregnancy, childbirth or menopause
- Thyroid gland issues
3. Medical conditions
- Scalp infections such as ringworm
- Drugs used to treat cancer
- Drugs for arthritis
- Drugs for depression
- Drugs for heart problems, high blood pressure, and birth control
- Too much vitamin A may cause hair loss also.
Technology has come a long way. Hair restoration looks more natural than ever thanks to the Neograft method.
Hair restoration or hair transplant is a surgical technique. This technique relocates hair follicles from a part of the body known as the ‘donor site’ to a bald or balding part of the body called the ‘recipient site’. NeoGraft hair restoration is popular among people because of the closeness in appearance to their natural hair. The last thing people want to deal with is obvious differences in their hair that cause further attention to be drawn to it.
