Hair fall and its effective treatment in Chembur, Mumbai,India

  1. 1. Effective treatment & remedies for Hair loss at homeopathic Clinic, MumbaiCauses of hair loss:-Hair loss can be due to: Decreased growth of the hair Increased shedding of the hair Breakage of hairs Conversion of thick terminal hairs to thin vellus hairsHair cycleHair grows in a cycle: Anagen (living growing hair), Catagen (in-between phase) and Telogen (resting or falling-out phase). Recently a new phase, ketogen, has been recognised; this is when the follicle is empty, after the telogen hair has fallen out and before the anagen hair is visible on the scalp.Anagen hair lossAnagen is normally for two to seven years.
  2. 2. Hair loss occurs when anagen is interrupted by certain medications (e.g. anti-cancerdrugs), or by the ‘autoimmune’ disease, alopecia areata. Anagen hair is tapered orbroken-off.Telogen hair lossTelogen lasts 4-6 months and is terminated by a new anagen hair.The result is falling off of hair with a bulb at the end. It is normal to lose 50 or moretelogen hairs a day, and even little more in autumn and winter. Excessive shedding results in telogen effluvium, often a couple of months after an eventsuch as child-bearing, fever, an operation, weight loss or certain medications. Sometimesthere will be no recognizable cause, and the shortened hair cycle can continue for years(chronic telogen effluvium).New growth can be seen at the hairline as a sign of recovery.Pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia)Genetic and hormonal influences result in gradual thinning of scalp hair with age as maleor female pattern (androgenetic) hair loss.It is apparent in about 50% of individuals by the age of 50 years.Internal conditionsOther causes of hair loss are associated with poor quality hair: Iron deficiency Deficiency of thyroid hormoneReplacement of iron or thyroid hormone respectively may result in prompt regrowth.Hair shaft abnormalityIf hair loss first occurs in childhood, it may be due to a genetic hair shaft defect. Theseare diagnosed by microscopic examination of the hair, and sometimes by scanningelectron microscopy.Following are the hair shaft abnormality : Fractures of hair shaft : trichorrhexis nodosa, trichoschisis Irregularities in the hair shaft: trichorrhexis invaginata , Marie-Unna hypotrichosis (uncombable hair), pili bifurcati, beaded hair Coiling and twisting of hair shaft : pili torti (twisted hair), woolly hair
  3. 3. Anagen hair loss in a child may be due to ‘loose anagen syndrome’.Scarring alopeciaTrauma, infection and various skin diseases may injure the hair follicle resulting inlocalised areas of scarring,cicatrisation and bald patches in which there are no visiblefollicles; this is called ‘cicatricial alopecia’.Infections like Staphylococcal folliculitis or boils, and ringworm (tinea capitis) also can be reasonfor scarring alopecia.Skin diseases like, lichen planopilaris, frontal fibrosing alopecia, discoid lupuserythematosus and scleroderma.Scarring hair loss of unknown cause is known as pseudopelade.Scalp conditionstinea capitispsoriasis -thick plaques of scaleSeborrhoeic dermatitisatopic dermatitis.TraumaHair can be pulled out by tight curlers or certain hair styles, sometimes resulting inpermanently thinned areas (traction alopecia). The hair shafts can be broken by heat (hairdryer), or chemicals (perming solution or bleach) or brushing too often.Trichotillomania is a form of alopecia resulting from repetitive pulling, plucking andbreaking of ones own hair.Treatment:All the above causes and risk factors responsible for the hair fall should be first assessed.The treatment pattern will be decided as per the diagnosis and a tailor made diet and otheraccessory mode would provide a great help.Document Source: http://www.mindheal.orgMindheal Homeopathy is a leading homeopathic treatment center in Mumbai,India.
