The average person fall 50 to 100 hairs per day, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). And yet, there are some men and women who lose much more than that, resulting in thinning hair, which lowers their self-esteem and anticipated attractiveness. Fortunately, hair loss can be addressed, and the earlier it is, the better the result.
The Source Of The Problem
Full, healthy hair starts with the scalp. “Healthy hair growth starts with a healthy scalp because that’s where the ‘roots’ of the hair follicle are located,” Dr. Rebecca Kazin, of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery and the Johns Hopkins Department of Dermatology, told Medical Daily. “Any irritation or inflammation of the scalp can interfere with optimal hair formation and weaken the integrity of the hair.”
In fact, Dr. Susan Lin, founder of MD Lash Factor, told Medical Daily that about 25 percent of hair loss is due to scalp issues. According to the AAD, signs of trouble can include falling large amounts of hair after combing or brushing it, or hair that suddenly becomes thinner and falls out. The latter, Kazin added, can result from frequent color or heat treatment that often leads to breakage.
Two Types Of Hair Loss
Hair shedding is often thought of in terms of hereditary and medical conditions. Hereditary hair loss is generally hormonal, Lin said, while non-hereditary medical causes of hair fall include anemia, hypothyroidism, chemotherapy, autoimmune diseases, and prescription drug side effects.
In order to diagnose a condition, men and women are inspired to visit a dermatologist, who will ask for a detailed history of the patient’s family health and their prescribed medications. The dermatologist will also be able to transaction a thorough scalp and hair examination. Sometimes a scalp biopsy is done to confirm a condition. But ultimately, each step is taken to regulate the best way to promote hair growth.
On the other hand, when hair loss is not hereditary or medical, it’s usually attributed to threating brushing or too much product that clogs the scalp — think gel and mouse. “We also know that avoiding crash diets, and eating a well-balanced diet, can maintain and increase your skin, scalp, and hair,” Kazin said.
