Default Hair Loss

Hair Loss Causes

Common causes of hair loss


Male pattern baldness


Trauma


Chemicals


Medications such as allopurinol (Zyloprim) and warfarin (Coumadin)


Poor nutrition


Stress, for example, during a major illness


Uncommon causes of alopecia


Poor blood flow


Infections such as syphilis


Skin diseases such as lupus


Cancers


Hormone problems


Kidney failure


Liver failure

Hair Loss Symptoms

Most people notice hair loss when looking at themselves in a mirror.


You may also find many hairs on your pillow in the morning or in your hairbrush or comb.


A woman may notice a decrease in the size of her ponytail.


Aside from the thinning hair itself, most people do not have other problems associated with hair loss.

When to Seek Medical Care

If you have hair loss, you may want to see a doctor if you want to prevent balding.


See your doctor if you are losing large amounts of hair every day, and if you are not feeling well at the same time you are losing hair.


Most often hair loss occurs without other signs of illness.


If the following symptoms occur at the same time as hair loss, you may have a serious medical condition and you should see a doctor right away.


Confusion


Poor appetite


Constipation


Diarrhea


Trouble breathing


Weight loss


Vomiting


Fever


Pain


Skin problems
There is no reason to seek emergency medical care for hair loss

Exams and Tests
Physicians diagnose hair loss by looking at hair amount and hair distribution. Men usually lose hair in an easily recognized pattern. Women usually have about equal hair loss from all parts of the scalp.



Charts with pictures of hair loss help to classify the amount and type of hair loss. These include the Hamilton and Ludwig classification charts.


Extra tests usually are not needed unless the diagnosis is uncertain.


You can do a pull test, examining the pulled hair for different thickness and length.


Different thickness and length confirm the most common type of hair loss, androgenic alopecia.


Skin problems leading to hair loss may be diagnosed by taking a sample of skin and hair from the affected area. A doctor looking at this under a microscope might find skin irritation or infection as the cause.


If hair loss is severe or other signs of illness are present, many tests might be used, including x-rays and blood tests.

Hair Loss Treatment
If hair loss is caused by another illness, treatment of the illness is the best treatment for hair loss. If hair loss is the only problem, then there are many ways to treat it depending on how severe the loss is.

The most important consideration to make when deciding the type of treatment is how much your hair loss bothers you.

Treatment options include grooming techniques, wigs and hairpieces, medications, and surgery.

Styling hair to cover the areas with the most hair loss is effective for mild cases. Washing and styling the hair will not cause further hair loss.


For more severe hair loss, wigs and hairpieces can provide good results if you are willing to try them. Either of these options can be used in combination with medications or surgery if the results of styling or the hairpiece alone are not satisfying.

Self-Care at Home
Treatment of this problem at home is difficult.

Decreasing the amount of pulling and tugging of the hair will prevent loose hair from falling out, but only for a short time.
Most people will need to see their doctor to determine if there is a medical problem causing hair loss and to consider if treatment is indicated.

Medical Treatment

Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar): A pill taken once daily that blocks the effects of testosterone on hair growth. Testosterone is a hormone found in higher concentrations in men. Finasteride is not currently used for the treatment of hair loss in women.


Minoxidil (Rogaine, Loniten): A medication you rub directly onto your scalp. This medication enlarges hairs and makes them grow for a longer period.


It works for both men and women.


It works best for balding at the top and back of the head and less well for the front area of the scalp.


Stopping this medication can result in loss of the hair that developed during its use.

Surgery

Hair transplant: A doctor takes plugs of hair from areas on your scalp where hair is thick and puts them on areas where your hair is thin.


These hair plugs can have a bothersome checkerboard appearance.


Follicular transplants, which move individual hairs from one place to another, are replacing hair plug transplants.
Scalp rotation: A doctor moves a piece of your scalp that has good hair growth to an area of poor growth. The procedure is effective in children, but adults do not respond well to this type of treatment.

Interesting reading, but let me tell you that hair loss and baldness is not longer something that happens to men exclusively.

Throughout recent times, the number of women suffering from severe hair lose and partial or total baldness has increased dramatically!

A couple ways you can help slow hair loss is eat a healthy diet with a lot of 'good fats' and protein. This will make your hair fuller and healthier. Also, I like to take supplements. Biotin is a great vitamin for your hair, skin and nails. I take a few a day in with in weeks I noticed my hair getting longer, shinier and falling out less then in the past. I suggest a higher dose of biotin to really see any change.

Here a few simple home remedies which can be tried at home to control hair fall.

1.Rinse your hair with a mix of apple cider vinegar and sage tea this helps hair grow..

2. A medicine rich in sulfur is also recommended as sulfur plays an important part in the structure of the hair.

3. Massage with olive oil before going to bed at night and next morning, wash off the hair gently..

4. To treat hair loss apply a little lemon juice with some black tea.Massage well and shampoo.

5. Beat two eggs,and add two tablespoons of water to it. Rinse hair and pour the egg mixture over the hair.Massage the scalp well and leave for 10 minutes.Then wash it.
