Hair loss: People Don’t Wish It To Happen To Them
What might you do when it comes to hair loss in and around Fort Ogden
Although everyone loses hair every day, for the majority of people, it grows back. You can expect approximately 100 strands of hair to fall off often. A typical hair growth cycle will last between two to six years with hair falling out and re-growing every twelve weeks. Some people start losing a lot more than usual, while not growing back as many. The dramatic hair thinning has become quite common lately for many people.
It is really not obvious for many people until people point it out to them. If you’re one of those people who are susceptible to hair loss, or you are already losing your hair, you will need to know what types of hair loss there are. One typical type happens in both men and women and it is referred to as androgenetic alopecia or pattern baldness. The major cause of this type is heredity, and it is characterized by less strong strands of hair together with slow growth. A strong family history of pattern baldness and a person’s age will assure that a person is going to lose their hair.
A lasting form of hair loss brought on by inflammation is called cicatricial alopecia or scarring alopecia. Inflammation triggers scarring in the hair follicles which stops the hair from growing. The reason for inflammation in the scalp continues to be a mystery although a number of skin conditions like lichen planus and lupus erythematosus can cause scarring alopecia. One more type of hair loss is alopecia areata and it is thought to be an autoimmune disease. The cause of the condition is undiscovered, but it still is part of this group. Those who are afflicted with alopecia areata usually are healthy but it might be due to something like a thyroid condition. There are those who think that a virus is triggering alopecia areata or possibly it is a genetic disorder.
Telogen effluvium is another type of hair loss that takes place if there is a change in the normal hair cycle. Growth of hair may be stopped too early because of an abrupt physical or emotional shock to the system. Incredibly stressful events like death in the family can result in telogen effluvium. Severe physiological stress such as extreme weight gain or loss, severe illness or metabolic problems can result in sudden hair loss.
Right now there is a hair loss that’s becoming popular, and it is referred to as traction alopecia. Excessive hairstyling will put too much pressure on the scalp, and that is what is causing this type of hair loss. The ceaseless pulling of the hair causes the roots to become weakened and hair cannot grow again.
