Discovering The Mystery Of Hair Loss (Part 2)

Hair Loss & Its symptoms
Alopecia means baldness, happens for many reasons of which we will discover later. One of the symptoms of hair loss is losing more than 100 strands of hair per day and considered serious if you notice thinning or clumps of hair falling out when combing your hair. For people with thinner hair, a lower number of hairs lost should be considered.

Types Of Hair Loss & Causes
Many studies have been conducted and suggested a variety of factors contributing to hair loss.


1. Andogenetica Alopecia (Male & Female Pattern Baldness) is the most common type of hair loss and it is due to a combination of factors such as hereditary, age and hormones.

For some men, Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) can start as early as early 20s with receding hairlines and gradual disappearance of hair from the crown (See image 1). Some women, on the other hand, experience Female Pattern Baldness (FPB) usually after menopause, approximately at age 40 and above with general thinning on the scalp, having most extensive hair loss on the crown (See image 2).

Hedereditary / Hormones
95% of hair loss is caused by the male sex hormone, Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is formed in adrenal gland, prostrate gland, testes and hair follicle. DHT is important in the early stages in life, for sexual behavior and important for protein building.

For people with genetic tendency to hair loss, DHT prevent nutrients to the hair follicle, which causes hair follicles to shrink. The shrinking of hair follicle would result in thinning hair and eventually, balding.

Many treatments are available but it may not work for some with genetic predisposition to hair loss. Hence, medical surgeries are available such as hair transplants, scalp reduction or flap surgery. However, hair transplant may cause additional hair loss as a result of “shock fallout” and it might not regrow.


2. Telogen Effluvium (TE) is the second most common type of hair loss and is most common in females. People who undergo this phase of hair loss experience overall thinning of the hair but less severe and temporal as compared to Androgenetica Alopecia. As it’s temporal, the hair goes into the resting phase and falls out 2 to 3 months later, then, grow back in 6 to 9 months.

The main factor of TE is the hormonal changes in one’s body. Thus, this temporal hair loss is often seen in women after childbirth and, or pregnant. Stress (also caused by hormonal changes) is also one of the factors of the mentioned temporal hair loss. Stress causes scalp tension and decreases blood circulation which deprives nutrient in the hair follicles. The bad news for people experiencing TE is that there are no treatments BUT there’s not a need for treatment as hair should return after a dormant phase.


3. Anagen Effluvium caused by medical treatments like chemotherapy, to treat cancer. Hair usually stops growing and falls out in patches and eventually, total. Hair usually grows back after 6 months after treatment has stopped.


4. Traction Alopecia, just as the name suggests, it is a type of hair loss due to excessive and chronic traction, pulling, straining of hair. Hence, try to avoid braiding or weaving your hair too often as it strains the hair follicle.


5. Alopecia Areata can be defined as hair falling out in coin-sized patches. Areata can be seein in children of young adults, but hair will return within a few years in 90% of cases. The reason for the temporary baldness is unknown but it is caused by an auto-immune disease, when the immune system attacks the hair follicles.


6. Alopecia Univeralis involves rapid total baldness in the entire body, including eyebrows. It is considered the most severe type of hair loss as a result of an auto-immune disease.


Other Factors:
7. Illness and diseases – some illnesses, for example, high fever, influenza, anaemia, tumour, syphilis, diabetes and thyroid gland related diseases may cause temporary hair loss.

8. Chemotherapy and medications – Some medications encourages hair fall such as anti-depressants, anti-arthritic, and even high doses of Vitamin A.

9. Inadequate nutrition – Malnutrition plays a vital role in hair loss. An inadequate protein and iron intake can cause hair to enter into the Telogen (resting) phase. Thus, fill your meals with raw vegetables, fish, fruits, beans, salads, green leafy vegetables for good health and HAIR!


10. Trichotillomania (hair pulling) is a behavioral issue and should be addressed.

11. Hair Styling Treatments – Chemical treatments for bleaching, dyeing, tints, straighening, permanent waves, or relaxers can make the hair weaker. For this reason, use reputable products and visit a qualified hair stylists.
