HAIR CONCERNS

Hair Fall

A little hair loss every day is normal but when you start losing hair to the limit of going bald, it can get very distressing. Hair fall, scanty hair, hair breakage, hair thinning or balding are all conditions that could be concerning and would require professional intervention and treatment. Thankfully, a lot of treatment options are available today to combat these problems.

What causes hair loss problems?

A lot of the times, finding your hair on your pillow or in your hairbrush or in the bath can get annoying but is still manageable. However, when things start to escalate, looking into what is causing hair loss becomes very important to be able to rightly treat the problems. Reduced hair growth causing hair loss, hair loss as a symptom or side effect of ageing, hair loss caused by medical conditions, hair loss due to hair breakage, hair loss as a result of thinning of hair volume and hair loss due to baldness are all different but ultimately all the issues lead to hair loss. Some of the causes of hair loss could be as follows:

  • Male or female pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, could be one reason for hair loss leading to balding
  • Oily scalp caused by the over-active oil glands or over-reactive sebaceous glands make a breeding ground for dust, dandruff and other debris. This clogs the hair follicles and roots and leads to hair fall.
  • Hormonal changes in women during menstruation, pregnancy, could cause hair loss
  • Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism can both result in hair loss
  • Stress is a big contributor in hair fall
  • Certain medications, like anti-depressants, anticoagulants, certain oral contraceptives and chemotherapy cause hair loss
  • Poor hair care habits like over-brushing, using too many harmful hair products, hairstyling that involves heat (hairdryers, straighteners, curling irons, etc.), constantly coloring hair, perming, could all lead to hair breakage and ultimately hair loss
  • Poor lifestyle choices including lack of exercise, poor sleeping habits, nutrient-deficient food intake, etc. could also lead to hair loss
  • Serious medical disorders like lupus, sex-hormone imbalance, or an autoimmune disease like alopecia areata lead to severe hair loss.

Hair Thinning or Scanty Hair

Hair thinning refers to minor to moderate hair loss. Unlike severe hair loss, hair thinning might not lead to baldness. However, your hair might appear scanty or thin in areas on the scalp or throughout your scalp. Hair thinning is a gradual process and hence, timely measures can be taken to avoid extreme issues.

What causes hair thinning or scanty hair?

Hair thinning may be caused due to genetics, lifestyle habits, or certain medical conditions.

  • Poor hair care habits – like over-brushing, using harmful hair products, hairstyling using heating tools, constantly colouring hair, perming, could all lead to hair thinning. Tying your hair up too tight during workouts or in general can cause hair thinning too.
  • Imbalanced Diet – lack of minerals, iron, folic acid in your diet.
  • Uncontrolled stress that leads to hormonal imbalance and hence hair fall.
  • Heredity Hair thinning hair may also be hereditary or caused by genetic reasons.
  • Hormonal changes in women during menstruation and pregnancy could cause hair loss, consumption of birth control pills, etc. can also cause hair thinning.
  • Uncontrolled weight loss, skin and hair disorders can also lead to hair thinning

Hair Breakage

Hair Breakage

Healthy hair depends on healthy hair follicles that hold the hair strands together. When these follicles become weak, your hair can get dry and break and also look frizzy.

What causes hair thinning or scanty hair?

Hair breakage could occur due to a host of reasons. The most common causes of hair breakage are

  • Diet – Certain nutrients help your hair grow and prevent breakage. Proteins, zinc, iron, folic acid, and antioxidants should be a part of your daily diet
  • Stress Telogen effluvium is the type of hair fall linked to stress most likely linked to hair damage. The stress causes large numbers of hair follicles into a resting or dormant phase. These hair can fall out over a period of a few months. Types of stress can include surgery, childbirth, and serious illness.
  • Poor hair care habits like over-brushing, using harmful hair products, hairstyling using heating tools, constantly coloring hair, perming, could all lead to hair thinning. Tying your hair up too tight during workouts or in general can cause hair thinning too.
  • Hormonal imbalance like Hypothyroidism and during menstruation, pregnancy could cause hair breakage.
  • Imbalanced Diet can also lead to hair breakage.

Hair breakage can be upsetting. Most of the time lifestyle changes advised by an expert healthcare professional can help to arrest hair breakage. Treatments for the same could be required if medications and lifestyle changes are not effective.

Balding

It’s normal to lose some hair from your scalp each day. But if your hair is thinning or shedding faster than usual, you may be balding. Balding occurs due to excessive hair loss from the head. The term “balding” is most commonly used to refer to androgenetic alopecia, or male or female pattern hair loss.

What causes balding?

  • Androgenetic alopecia – typically causes balding. In men, it’s more commonly known as male pattern baldness. And in women, it’s known as female pattern baldness. It is responsible for 95% of cases of permanent hair loss.
  • Genetics – Hereditary disorders or genes are the most common cause of balding
  • Alopecia areata – An autoimmune disease where the body attacks its own hair follicles can lead to balding.
  • Telogen effluviumlinked to stress most likely causing hair damage. The stress causes large numbers of hair follicles into a resting or dormant phase. These hair can fall out over a period of few months causing balding.
  • Hormonal imbalance hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, during pregnancy, and child-birth, menstruation can lead to hair fall and balding.
  • Nutritional deficiencies can also cause balding.

  7. Hair transplant, in simple terms, is, taking the hair you have and transferring it to an area where you don’t have hair. It’s typically taken from the back of your head, but can also be taken from other parts of your body. Our expert surgeon then performs one of two transplant methods: FUT or FUE.
