So Many People Are Uncomfortable About Hair Loss
What can you actually do when it comes to hairloss in and around Palm Harbor
Many people lose hair each day, but the majority of it grows back. You can anticipate 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 individuals start losing a lot more than normal, while not growing back as much. The significant hair thinning has become very common recently for many individuals.
A large number of individuals are not even aware that they are losing some of their hair, until it is pointed out to them by people around them. There are actually a few types of hair loss that can occur. Both males and females could get androgenetic alopecia which is also known as pattern baldness. This type of baldness is genetic and its characteristics are weakened strands of hair and slow hair growth. Family history of pattern baldness adds to the risk, and age is yet another factor in the speed of hair loss.
Cicatricial alopecia or scarring alopecia is yet another permanent kind of hair loss which is due to inflammation. Inflammation leads to scarring in the hair follicles which inhibits the hair from growing. No one is quite certain how inflammation comes about but certain skin conditions like lupus erythematosus and lichen planus are known to also trigger scarring alopecia. An autoimmune condition called alopecia areata is another type of hair loss. The root cause of the condition is not known, but it still is part of this category. Those who are afflicted with alopecia areata are generally healthy but it may be due to something like a thyroid problem. There are people who imagine that a virus is triggering alopecia areata or maybe it is a genetic disorder.
One more kind of hair loss is telogen effluvium which is caused by a change in the normal hair cycle. A shock to the system, which can be physical or mental, may be the cause of hair growth being stopped prematurely. Extremely stress filled events like death in the family may trigger telogen effluvium. Intense physiological stress including severe weight gain or loss, severe illness or metabolic problems can result in abrupt hair loss.
Traction alopecia is a newer type of hair loss that’s been rising the last few decades. This kind of hair loss is brought about by over styling of the hair. The constant pulling of the hair causes the roots to become weak and hair is unable to grow again.
