Some of the Worst Mistakes in My Life Were Haircuts
― Jim Morrison
“THE WORST Mistake of Your Life Would be not Having Enough Hair to Actually Get a Haircut.”
Hair plays a very crucial role in how you look and on how the society looks at you. No matter how much care you take for your hair genetics, stress, food habits, and a lot more factors affect your hair.
Hair fall and hair loss have tormented us for millennia and it is only in this century that we’ve moved on from hiding our barren foreheads to actually stimulate hair growth.
There are numerous ways to categorize hair loss. Examine the scalp to determine if the hair loss is due to the physical destruction and loss of hair follicles.
If the scalp appears perfectly normal with plenty of empty hair follicles, this is called non-scarring hair loss. On the other hand, the follicles are permanently destroyed in scarring hair loss.
Non-scarring hair loss can also be seen in situations where there is physical or chemical damage to the hair shaft resulting in breakage.
Occasionally, it may be necessary to do a biopsy of the scalp to distinguish these conditions.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Any kind of physical trauma surgery, a car accident, or a severe illness, even the flu can cause temporary hair loss.
This can trigger a type of hair loss called telogen effluvium. air loss often becomes noticeable three-to-six months after the trauma.
Too Much Vitamin A
Overdoing vitamin A-containing supplements or medications can trigger hair loss.
Female-pattern hair loss, called androgenic or androgenetic alopecia, is basically the female version of male pattern baldness.
Unlike men, women don’t tend to have a receding hairline, instead, their part may widen, and they may have noticeable thinning of hair.
If you come from a family where women started to have hair loss at a certain age, then you might be more prone to it.
Vitamin B Deficiency
Low levels of vitamin B are another correctible cause of hair loss.
Hypothyroidism is the medical term for having an underactive thyroid gland.
This little gland located in your neck produces hormones that are critical to metabolism as well as growth and development and when it’s not pumping out enough hormones, can contribute to hair loss.
Emotional stress is less likely to cause hair loss than physical stress, but it can happen, for instance, in the case of divorce, after the death of a loved one, or while caring for an aging parent.
More often, though, emotional stress won’t actually precipitate the hair loss. It will exacerbate a problem that’s already there.
Benefits of Hair Transplant.
People might be thinking that how is hair transplant surgery cost-effective. Well if you consider the costs of other treatments you will realize that those costs are although small but never-ending.
Another benefit of hair transplant surgery is that you get hair that is very manageable. Transplanted hair works just like your naturally grown hair, so you don’t need to apply any special shampoos or chemicals to maintain its density.
Some people have reservations about hair implants and they think of it as an unsafe process.
But according to medical experts, this is totally untrue because hair transplants are completely safe and natural.
