The Main Cause Of Alopecia

The Main Cause Of Alopecia

Alopecia is the general medical term for hair loss. There are many types of hair loss with different symptoms and causes. Male pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss, making about half of all men at age 50. It usually begins around the twenties or early thirties, and most men have some degree of hair loss in their late thirties. In addition to affecting men, it can sometimes affect women. During the baldness of the female pattern, the hair usually disappears on top of the head.

Alopecia Areata
Alopecia areata causes patches of baldness over the size of a large coin. They usually appear on the scalp but can occur anywhere on the body. It can occur at any age, but occurs especially in teenagers and young adults. Alopecia areata is caused by a problem with the immune system. It is more common in people with other autoimmune conditions, such as an overactive thyroid, diabetes or Down’s syndrome.

Scarring Alopecia
Scalp alopecia, also called cicatricial alopecia, is usually caused by complications of another condition. In this type of alopecia, the hair follicle is completely destroyed. This means that your hair does not grow back.

Anagen Effluvium
Anagen effluvium is widespread hair loss that can affect your scalp, face and body.
One of the most common causes of this type of hair loss is the chemotherapy of cancer treatment. In some cases, other cancer treatments can also cause hair loss.

Telogen Effluvium
Telogen effluvium is a common type of alopecia where there is much widespreadness of the hair, instead of specific bald patches. Your hair may become thinner, but it is unlikely that you will lose everything and your other body hair will usually not be affected.

How to Grow Your Hair Longer

How to Grow Your Hair Longer

There are three steps of hair growth, says Phillips. “They include: Anagen, the actual growth phase; Catagen, the rest phase, which lasts three or four months; and Telogen, when your hair unanchors from the follicle and sheds away naturally.”Obviously not every hair is on the same cycle, which is why we have hair on our heads at all times. But it’s important to know where your hair might be in it’s growth phase, so you don’t get frustrated when trying to grow your hair longer like Selena’s.

What Stunts Hair Growth

“Genetically we’re programmed to our rate of growth,” says Phillips. However, she told Cosmo that you can improve your lifestyle and hair choices that you make to increase the length of your hair to be long llke Kelly’s.Here are the most known culprits of stunted hair growth that happen internally and externally:

Your general internal health contributes to how long your hair is. So, issues like thyroid problems, hormonal imbalances, etc. could stunt hair growth. Nutrition (weight fluctuation, crash or restrictive diets, high exercise and not enough protein, iron deficiency, etc.) also plays a role in how long your hair will grow. And lastly, stress.

Externally, we are constantly traumatizing our hair by pulling it back too tightly,  using hot tools on a too-high temperature, brushing it too hard, and basically  doing a number on it and beating it to the growth phase punch.

How to Jumpstart Hair Growth

The first step in growing your hair longer faster, like Avril’s: Phillips suggests starting by making an appointment with your doctor to be sure you’re healty internally.

“You need to rule out any medical of systemic issues first with a trichologist and make sure everything is in balance, before starting to change your eating habits and making other lifestyle changes.”

Eating Well = Longer Locks

You also have to eat well in order for your hair to grow long and strong, like Isla’s. “It’s all about balance and eating a little bit from each of the food groups,” says Phillips. “If you’re a vegetarian, I tell my patients to create balance by including protein albeit legumes, lentils, etc. into their diet—especially since everyone should be eating protein in the morning and afternoon.”

She adds that, “by fueling it often and early, you’re showing your body that there is enough for all parts of it, compared to eating a colorful meal at the end of the day. In which case, your body will store and prioritize the nutrients for vital organs only, instead of passing it out to non-essential tissue, like hair.”

Condition Your Hair Often

“Just like you moisturize your facial skin after you wash it, it’s important to do the same for your scalp skin,” says Phillips. Conditioning on the regular and using leave-in conditioners are the perfect ways to maintain optimal scalp health, which is crucial to growing Beyoncé-long hair.

3 Things Women With Healthy Hair Do Differently

3 Things Women With Healthy Hair Do Differently

If you’ve ever envied another woman’s head of hair (don’t lie, you know you have), then this story’s for you! From the ordinary to the downright strange, check out these 15 tricks women with irresistibly healthy locks use to make the rest of us jealous.

2. They condition their tresses before the pool.

Smart girls also protect their hair prior to pool play! So if you’re less of a sunbather and more of a pool lover, celebrity hairstylist suggests using a thicker and inexpensive conditioner on dry hair before you hop in. “This is especially good for blondes,” he notes. “Since two things can’t occupy the same space at the same time, the conditioner will stop chlorine from entering your hair, preventing a green ashy tint and brittle ends.”

They protect their mane with SPF.

Did you know that keeping your locks protected from the sun is just as important as the sunscreen you put on your face? According to Ramirez, it’s true! “Most people aren’t aware that they should be wearing sunscreen for their hair,” he says. kerastase has an entire sun line of products formulated with heat protectors. Also, long hair is more prone to damage. Thus, on top of using a great sunscreen, it’s a good idea to style it into a braid for less exposure and a great beachy look.”

Why is so Long Hair?

Why is so Long Hair?

Why have humans evolved the ability to grow the hair on their heads long?

In most mammals the ability to grow long hair is an adaption for the cold and mammals that come from warmer climates tend to have hair (or fur) that grows to a standard length (as it were) and then not get any longer.  Human head hair seems to violate this rule and I have been trying to think of the reason why this is in evolutionary terms.

While hair is still damp (the “Liquid” part of the equation), apply Rare Hair Oil throughout your hair. Start with a small amount at first and add more if needed. To seal in the oil, next apply Longhairlovers Luxe Leave-in Treatment as your “Cream.” Allow hair to air-dry or use a diffuser for super-defined curls. For a straighter look use a stronger blow-dry setting. This hair care method will prevent breakage by keeping hair soft and hydrated as you inch toward your hair growth goal.

A nutritional supplement long used by athletes is now being shown to stimulate healthy hair growth.

According to a study published in the journal Experimental Dermatology, the amino acid has the ability to extend the period of maximum hair growth, meaning longer hair for people who haven’t been able to grow long hair before. It works by increasing the energy supply to the hair follicle and prolonging the life of the follicle. Since the hair stays on the head longer, it’s able to grow longer.

Many women with textured hair find their curls to be delicate and vulnerable to weather and styling products. Their textured hair can be more prone to breakage and split ends, which can cause hair to appear rough and unkempt. It can be especially frustrating if you’d like to grow your hair longer. A great way to protect your hair while letting it grow and looking stylish at the same time, is to braid your hair. Braids always seem to be in style, but each season stylists come up with many different takes on the classic braided styles. Check out these ten great styles below to get some ideas.

Braids are one category of “protective” hairstyles. But how exactly do they protect your hair, and what are they protecting from? Dry air, pollution, harsh hair products, friction against clothing, pillows, and even ordinary grooming and styling can cause damage to your hair. Also, for curly hair, each textured strand has fewer layers of surface cuticle than straight hair; this causes fragility and dryness, since moisture escapes from the hair shaft more easily. The mini-curls tend to get very tangled, and the result is more demanding care challenges. However, keep in mind that no matter if you have curly or straight locks, hair braiding styles with the right kind of regular care will put you on the road to stronger, healthier hair.
