What are the leading causes of Hair Loss?

Leading Causes of Hair Loss

If you’ve started to notice an increase in stray hairs on your pillow, your comb, or throughout your house, you may be curious about the source of this hair fall and how long it’s been going on.

Although many people panic when they notice the loss of hair, it’s crucial to recognize that it is natural to shed approximately 100-150 hairs per day. However, if the number increases, scalp becomes more visible, or your hairline recedes, you may be dealing with a type of alopecia, common among men in Miami. It’s estimated that two-thirds of men suffer male pattern baldness or hair thinning by the time they reach age 50, and many begin to notice signs as early as their twenties. This frustrating condition is not unique to men, as women are also susceptible to the hereditary hair loss called androgenic alopecia. While hair thinning is common, most men and women who experience it don’t want to accept the progressive loss of their once luscious locks. High value is placed on hair in our beauty and youth-conscious society. For men, thick hair is viewed as a sign of virile masculinity, while it can be a sign of feminine allure for women.

 

The Role of Testosterone

Testosterone plays a crucial role in baldness; however, it’s not the testosterone itself which causes hair loss, but rather DHT, a derivative of testosterone. 5 alpha reductase (5-AR), is an enzyme that works to convert testosterone to DHT. If levels of 5-AR go up, or additional testosterone is converted, it will lead to an increase of hair fall. Unfortunately, this chain of events leads to permanent and progressive results. Although there’s no cure for the development of baldness, revolutionary breakthroughs in technology now make it possible to stop the progression of hair loss and restore hair growth. We specialize in helping men who suffer from hair loss in Miami restore their hairline and self-esteem using hair restoration surgery. A hair transplant can take hair from a donor site and diffuse its density to cover multiple thinning areas on the scalp, providing results that are incredibly natural and permanent.

Hair Growth Cycle

The stages of hair growth and shedding are explained below to help you understand the process.

Anagen

The Anagen stage, also referred to as the growth phase, typically lasts between 2 and 7 years. The longer this phase lasts, the thicker and longer hair will grow.

Catagen

The Catagen stage, or transitional stage, lasts approximately 1-2 weeks. During this time, the hair bulb/root shrinks and detaches from the dermal papilla.

Telogen

The Telogen stage is the resting phase and typically lasts 2-3 months. 10-15% of your hair is in this phase at any given time. As its name implies, this phase sees the hair resting in the follicle but showing no sign of growth.

Exogen

The Exogen stage is the new hair growth phase. On average, individuals shed 100-150 hair per day during this phase, as the old hair falls out to allow for growth of new hair from deep in the follicle.

So, you think you are losing your hair. What are the first steps to take?

The most common cause of hair loss among men in Miami is androgenic alopecia, a genetic, hormone-induced condition which is progressive and often hereditary.

 

Androgenic Alopecia:

Although the problem is most prevalent for males, it affects women as well, although in different ways. While men tend to develop bald spots and a horseshoe pattern of hair at the sides and back of the head, women will usually experience diffused hair fall and are troubled by thinning hair or a more visible scalp. In many cases, women notice this change after childbirth or as they begin menopause, due to hormonal changes taking place within their body.

Understandably, most individuals who suffer from androgenic alopecia hope to find a fast, effective solution for their thinning hair. Luckily, as a result of advanced technology, you can now achieve flawless, natural-looking results which are virtually scar-less. However, to achieve this goal, it is crucial to entrust a qualified technician, as only an expert in hair loss for Miami men can deliver high-end results.

The truth about hair loss

If you’re experiencing an increase in hair fall, you may be curious about its cause. Unfortunately, there are many myths regarding the origins of hair loss, such as the notion that frequently brushing hair or wearing a hat will cause baldness. These claims are incorrect, as the hair that falls out when you pull on, rub, or wash your hair was ready to fall out regardless of whether you wore a hat, or how frequently you brushed your hair. Instead, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a type of androgen hormone, is responsible, as it regulates hair growth and sex drive. A higher androgen level in the hair follicles shortens the growth phase of the cycle which stunts growth, replacing naturally shed hairs with thinner ones.

Telogen (TE)

After androgenic alopecia, Telogen effluvium (TE) is the second most prevalent form of hair loss affecting our clients. This condition causes hair to appear weaker and occasionally, may result in rapid hair fall and thinning. Though dramatic and troubling, this problem is usually temporary. Multiple factors are responsible for TE, including physical or mental stress caused by traumatic situations, deprivation dieting, surgery, emotional trauma or fear. In addition, some medications, including antidepressants, are believed to be linked to temporary hair loss. Cancer treatments often affect the hair and skin because they contain rapidly growing cells. This results in temporary hair fall out; however, immediate changes are evident when the therapy is discontinued. Vitamin deficiencies may also cause poor hair growth, and many herbal, nutritional supplements are available to promote healthy hair such as Omega A, Iron, Silica, and Biotin. Certain hairstyles including tight braids or hair extensions may also cause hair loss as they put persistent pressure on the hair. This is known as traction alopecia and may or may not be permanent.
