Experiencing hair loss can be an upsetting and difficult time for anyone going through it. For men and women, full hair on their head is the crowning glory. Our hair has a huge influence on our confidence and how we present ourselves to the world. There are lots of products claiming to miraculously cure hair loss, thinning and all related concerns but you are probably still searching for one that actually delivers.
Understand what causes hair loss and how you can protect your hair from further breakage.
Female Pattern Hair Loss & Male Pattern Hair Loss
Female pattern hair loss (FPHL) & Male Pattern Hair Loss (MPHL), both are a distinctive form of hair loss that occurs in women & men with androgenetic alopecia. There is diffuse thinning of hair on the scalp due to increased hair shedding or a reduction in hair volume, or both. For women, it is normal to lose up to 50-100 hairs a day. FPHL results in thinning hair on the mid-frontal area of the scalp and is generally less severe than occurs in males.
What Causes Pattern Balding?
Male pattern hair loss is an inherited condition, caused by a genetically determined sensitivity to the effects of dihydrotestosterone, or DHT in some areas of the scalp. DHT is believed to shorten the growth, or anagen, phase of the hair cycle, from a usual duration of 3–6 years to just weeks or months. This occurs together with miniaturisation of the follicles, and progressively produces fewer and finer hairs. Several genes are involved, accounting for the differing age of onset, progression, pattern and severity of hair loss in family members. The susceptibility genes are inherited from both mother and father. Females that are losing their hair with age are more likely to present with female pattern hair loss, in which hormone tests are normal.
How to Prevent Hair Loss?
There is no one-fits-all solution to hair loss or thinning. Products can often slow down the process but they are rarely able to reverse the problem. Making some small changes in diet such as eating more iron can help with your hair’s health. Spinach, kale, nuts, dried apricots and brown rice are all excellent sources of iron. Hair is made of protein so an adequate daily portion of protein is vital for healthy hair.
Managing your stress levels can help the health of your hair. Some people find light or low impact exercise like yoga, swimming, and/or Pilates to be very effective. Others feel acupuncture, meditation, cognitive behavioural therapy and/or mindfulness helps them to cope with stress. Do what works best for you.
Over washing your hair can trigger hair thinning or loss. Try to avoid washing hair more than two or three times per week, as over-washing can stimulate the sebum glands leading to hair becoming weighed down with oil and looking finer and even lank.
