Hair Loss Facts
HAIR LOSS FACTS
Mainly for men but more and more also for women, hair loss or thinning hair represents a major problem. As it affects the appearance and is perceived to reduce attractiveness as well as the power of seduction, it has a big psychological impact and diminishes self confidence.
Androgenetic alopecia is the most common form of hair loss affecting both men and women. In men, it is also commonly known as male-pattern baldness. Hair is lost in a specific, well-defined
pattern, often progressing to partial or complete baldness. In women, the hairline does not recede, but the hair becomes thinner all over the head.
Three main factors play a role in androgenetic alopecia: Modifications in the receptivity of the hair follicles to male hormones (androgens), which can be genetically inherited or can be related to hormonal changes (postpregnancy or post-menopause) and psychological stress. Nutritional deficiencies in proteins, sulphur amino acids or vitamins, which can be aggravated in case of insufficient microcirculation. Seborrhea (greasy scalp and hair), often also linked to dandruff and itching scalp.
DHT Accounts for more than 95% of hair loss cases in male
Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of the male hormone testosterone, is the enemy of hair follicles on your head. Simply put, under certain conditions DHT wants those follicles dead. What basically occurs is that a certain enzyme that is held in the oil glands of hair follicles, called Type II 5-alpha reductase, converts Testosterone, (which yes can be found in women too), into DHT. Once the DHT is formed, it binds onto to the receptors in scalp follicles, shrinking the follicles and making it almost impossible for healthy hair to survive.
Successfully Blocking DHT at this point will most likely prevent any further hair loss. “Feeding” the weak and dormant hair follicles will make them re-grow stronger healthier hair.
It is advisable to battle hair loss With DHT Blockers working from within while using Trichogenic Complex on the scalp, such treatment is most likely more effective, however we do not have any clinicall study for using both methods at the same time, certainly there is no harm.
Other hair loss causes
Age: In our twenties and thirties we typically have 615 hair follicles per square centimetre. The number falls to 485 by the time we hit fifty and to 435 at eighty. Each hair also becomes thinner therefore reducing hair volume.
Stress: In extreme stress, or very long periods of stress the adrenal gland goes into overdrive results increase in adrenaline that sometimes leads to a consequent increase in the production of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone which, without enough estrogen to counterbalance it, can lead to hair not being as healthy as it should be.
Medication: In rare instances medicines may have side effects which impact on healthy hair growth, however it should be stated by the medicine manufacturer.
Poor diet: A diet rich in protein, vitamins and minerals is essential for healthy hair and hair growth. A diet low in protein is often the reason why someone will experience hair loss, thin hair and dull looking hair. As a poor diet affects new growth. The hair follicle is a non essential tissue and, therefore, one of the last tissues to receive nutritional substances. .
Hormonal change: Hormonal changes associated with menopause can affect the healthy hair growth cycle. While this menopausal side effect is relatively rare, it has been known to occur in some cases. Other hormonal changes in the body - notably thyroid issues and hormonal responses to changes in the autoimmune system have been known to affect hair growth in some women. Women can experience problems with their hair due to a hormone imbalance and increased sensitivity to the male hormones we all have.
Pregnancy is nonetheless stressful for the body. Consequently, it is common for post-partum hair shedding or even bald patches to occur as hormone levels get back to normal. This is usually a temporary and reversible condition, but If hair health is still an issue a few months after the pregnancy is over, it is likely that the hair condition is attributed to something other than the pregnancy.
Birth control: The pill is the most common form of contraception in women; a mixture of progesterin and estrogen carries an occasional side-effect which affects healthy hair growth in those who have a hereditary medical history of hair growth problems.
Overstyling: Aerosol sprays, hair dyes, straightening irons, and curlers might seem to be essential to hair beauty in the short term, but excessive use of may result in damaging hair in the long run. Women who find their hair healthy is being affected may also want to consider what they’re putting onto their hair and scalp on a daily basis and consider other cosmetic methods and nutritional supplements.
Smoking: Smoking affects healthy hair growth. Cigarette smoking has been shown to cause poor circulation, which can affect the amount of blood flow available to the hair follicles of the scalp.
