Hair loss is one of the most frustrating hair problems facing individuals of all genders and ages. It is not a simple problem, and therefore is best treated by an experienced team of professionals consisting of a board-certified plastic surgeon, a board-certified dermatologist, and a master hair transplant technician. Common hair problems, like hair loss, can be a distressing experience, but knowing the underlying causes can help in finding the appropriate solutions.
This genetic and hormone-influenced condition, known as male or female pattern baldness, leads to progressive hair thinning and eventual baldness.
Significant shifts in the hair growth cycle caused by stress, hormonal changes, illness, medications, or nutritional deficiencies can trigger excessive hair shedding.
An autoimmune condition where the immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, resulting in patchy hair loss on the scalp or body.
Repeated tension or pulling on the hair due to tight hairstyles like ponytails, braids, or cornrows can cause permanent hair loss over time.
Certain health issues can cause hair problems, such as thyroid disorders, scalp infections, hormonal imbalances, or nutritional deficiencies can contribute to hair loss.
Medications and Treatments:
Some medicines, including chemotherapy drugs, anticoagulants, antidepressants, or high-dose vitamin A supplements may cause hair loss as a side effect. Radiation therapy can also lead to localized hair loss.
Trauma or Physical Damage:
Scalp injuries, burns, or scars can damage hair follicles, resulting in permanent hair loss in the affected areas.
Hairstyling and Chemical Treatments:
Excessive use of heat styling tools, chemical treatments like perming or straightening, and harsh hair products also lead to common hair problems since it can weaken the hair shaft, causing breakage and hair loss.
It is crucial to consult a board-certified professional to diagnose and treat hair loss. A qualified professional can accurately determine the underlying cause of hair loss and recommend the most suitable treatment options. With their expertise and knowledge, they can guide you toward personalized solutions that address your specific needs. Remember, seeking professional help ensures that you receive safe and effective care tailored to your unique circumstances.
