Different Stages of Hair Loss When to see a Hair Specialist
Hair Loss, both for adults as well as teenagers, is a matter of real concern. I have gone through this condition and also made it go away. Since the day I started noticing that I have started losing hair, I tried what not to stop this, I went for home remedies and chemical products and hair loss treatment too, but sometimes its already too late for them to work their magic on your hair. And as I was still very persistent about the idea of growing my hair back, hair transplant came as the last option for me to restore the full volume of hair on my head. Being having a real experience of the hair transplantation, here I will be talking about some different stages of hair loss and When you should see a hair specialist.
At first, let’s talk about how does hair loss happen. Since all of our hair fell at the end of their growth cycle, so hair fall to some extent is taken as natural for every male or female. While the resting stage of the hair growth cycle is going on, the hair loosens its grip on the root of the hair and the head of the hair shaft moves nearer to the surface of the skin. And these roots of hair slacken more over time because of usual hair movements like brushing and shampooing, etc.
The most common reason for hair loss in men is Male-pattern baldness, while women may acquire female pattern baldness. Men normally inherit the trait. Apart from the genetics factor, hair loss can be caused by reasons such as-
- Hormone imbalances: In women, hormonal shifts can be caused due to use of childbirth, birth control pills, pregnancy, menopause or hysterectomy. it can cause more hair follicles than usual to enter into the dormant phase.
- Illness or surgery: sometimes the tension due to illness or surgery may assist the body to tentatively stop not so essential duties such as the production of hair. sometimes diseases like iron deficiency, thyroid disorders, syphilis, lupus or severe infection can also cause the same effect. alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease, which has no cure, also causes accelerated body-wide hair loss.
- Medications and vitamins: Strong medication can cause some hormonal imbalance which can stop your hair growth such as Cancer chemotherapy, which in its effort to kill all fast-growing cells around the body, also attacks hair follicles. it is a very well-known cause of hair loss.
- Nutritional deficits: Massive dieting and eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia can also temporarily cause hair follicles to stop growing. hair loss can also be caused due to insufficient protein, vitamin or mineral intake.
- Aging: A normal effect of growing older is decreased hair growth.
Hair transplantation is a surgery chosen by many people suffering from hair loss in India.
Hair loss has 7 phases, and you should know a little about them. It will help you in further treatment. let’s talk about these phases one by one.
Phase I: This is minimal hair loss on the scalp. It looks natural and includes losing 50-100 strands of hair daily.
Phase II: It included loss of hair at the temples which also does not look significant.
Phase III: It includes thinning of hair on the vertex and retreating hairlines.
Phase IV: In phase 4, There is a bigger hair loss pattern on the top and hairline.
Phase V: However, in this phase, a thin division line exists on your head, patterns of hair loss at both sides are larger than before.
Phase VI: The thin division in existed in the fifth Phase is gone in the sixth phase, leaving behind certain strands of short fine hair.
Phase VII: In phase 7 or the last phase, very little hair survives on the front or top of the scalp.
Both in hair growth and hair loss, changes are different from person to person, therefore it is essential to discuss with an expert as soon as you face an alarming situation.
If you’re experiencing a little bit of hair loss like Phase 2 or Phase 3, you can use some of the over-the-counter hair products and observe the improvement. but if you are suffering from any of the later phases of hair loss, you should schedule an appointment with a hair transplant doctor who can further help you.[/fusion_text][fusion_text] [/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
