WHAT CAUSES HAIR LOSS?

All hairs are shed at the end of their growth cycle, so some degree of hair loss is normal. If you have excessive hair loss, it makes sense to first understand the possible causes.

Understanding the causes of hair loss can help you to make the best choice for your hair loss treatment.

Pharmaceutical Treatments for Hair Loss

Pharmaceutical hair restoration treatments such as Minoxidil, Rogaine Propecia are used to effect the structure or function of the hair follicles in an effort to stop hair loss and promote hair growth.

Hair restoration medications are used to treat both sudden temporary hair loss, as well as chronic hair loss.

Hair Loss Resulting from Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy weakens the follicles causing your hair to fall out much more quickly than it would normally.

Depending on the type of treatment you receive, hair loss may start anywhere from 7 to 20 days after treatment begins.

Your hair will start to grow back when you are finished with chemotherapy, but it may take 6 to 11 months to grow back completely.

Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata (patchy hair loss) is an immune system disorder which causes hair follicles to stop producing hairs.

Sudden loss of hair from small patches on the head are a common symptoms. Whether you suffer from Andregenetic Alopecia or Alopecia Areata, our hair loss concealer products will give you instant relief from hair loss problems.

Hair Loss and Pregnancy

Exact causes are unknown, but it is known that during pregnancy the hormonal environment affects the anagen/telogen (A/T) ratio.

This keeps more hairs in the anagen phase so there are more hair follicles than normal actively producing hair fibers.

After birth the hormones return to normal and the A/T ratio falls to below normal. Hairs that should have been in telogen during pregnancy go into it in a synchronous fashion.

With time the A/T ratio returns to normal and hair volume increases, which typically takes about three months.
