Hair loss: Most common causes and best treatment tips. Dynamic Regenerative Medicine

When your hair is healthy you feel great. If your head doesn’t feel healthy it can end up making you feel down. Hair loss and thinning hair is quite common amongst both men and women But it can vary and differences can be huge. Everybody goes through periods of hair shedding. However, in some cases the rate of shedding outweighs the hair growth causing I gradual loss of coverage. 

Below are some outlining reasons to why we may lose hair:

Emotional or physical stress

Hair loss can commonly be experienced when one is going through a stressful period or dealing with an emotional problem. Also, overexerting yourself physically can also result in hair loss and hair thinning.

Pollution

Sudden hair loss is imminent if the contaminants of air, including particulate matter, dust, smoke, nickel, lead and arsenic, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, ammonia and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons settle on your scalp and hair. 

Poor diet: In order to be in their best shape, women these days indulge into dieting, which on the flip side can lead to lack of nutrition in their body, resulting in massive hair loss.

Poor quality of sleep

Lack of sleep can also lead to hair loss.

Reduced protein

Dietary protein is essential as it helps make new hair cells. Reduced protein or even quality of protein will affect hairs as they won’t be able to replace your old hairs with the new ones.

Alterations in birth control pill 

Going off the pill or changing to a different type of hormonal contraception is also one of the causes of hair loss in women.

Pregnancy

Changes in estrogen levels, women during pregnancy notice their hair going into rapid growth mode. But, once estrogen levels go back to normal after delivery, hair starts shredding again.

Excessive styling of hair 

Excessive styling and hair treatments over the years can be harsh on your head. Constant application of chemicals on hair weaken their roots and even affect hair follicles. Wearing too tight ponytails is also one of the causes of hair loss among women.

Anemia

Iron deficiency is extremely common and can also have problems with excessive hair loss. 

Hormonal changes:

Polycystic ovary syndrome for example symbolises imbalance in female sex hormones. An excess of androgens results in ovarian cysts, a higher risk of diabetes, changes in menstrual period, which ultimately affects the hair growth. 

Underactive thyroid is another big reason for hair loss.

Heredity

Genetic coding can also be valuable prediction of hair loss.

Below list some treatments for hair loss

Mesotherapy

It involves imparting a combination of various nutrients and medication that boosts hair growth naturally.

Platelet-rich plasma treatment (PRP)

In is a commonly used and successful treatment, whereby the patient’s blood is drawn and is then processed. The platelet-rich blood is inserted via an injection into the problem areas of skin to organically support hair growth. 

Hair transplant

This treatment restores hair by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. Healthy follicles are taken from other areas of the body; mostly the back or the sides of the head. 

For moderate cases of hair loss and thinning hair platelet rich plasma treatment will suffice, in severe cases both a combination of transplant and PRP May be required.
