Smart natural pathway for thetreatment of alopecia and hair loss
We have approximately 5 million hairs on our body. About 150,000 (more if youre blond, less if youre a redhead) are found on our scalp. Each hair grows from a pocket in the skin called the hair follicle. During its growing phase, the follicle has a bulb-shaped bottom, the center of which is called the dermal papilla (P).The papilla is fed by very small blood vessels, which bring it food and oxygen and take wastes away. The papilla is highly sensitive to hormones. It is here that hormones and chemicals secreted by your body (or injestedas a medicine) work on the hair, making it grow faster, slower, or not at all.
The color of our hair is determined by pigmented cells growing at the dermal papilla. These cells (melanocytes), contain a chemical pigment (melanin). The amount and density of melanin in these cells determines the exact color of your hair. There are two types of melanin, one coloring hair brown to black (eumelanin) and one coloring hair blond to red (pheomelanin). The color, shape and thickness is in a large part determined by genetics...just look at your folks!
The hair follicle is a sac-like structure that surrounds the hair root. It is found below the skin, and has very small blood vessels giving it nourishment. Sebaceous glands surrounding the hair root secrete oil (sebum) while salt-water (perspiration) is secreted from nearby sweat glands .The sebum oil protects the hair and keeps it shiny and waterproof, while the sweat is a way for the body to cool down if its too hot.
Hairis actually composed of a protein called keratin. Its the same protein found in our nails and in our skin. A strand of hair has three layers. The outermost layer is called the cuticle. It is transparent and acts to protect the inner layers. The innermost layer is called the medulla, and is composed of large baggy cells that may have a hollow-like appearance. Between these two layers is the cortex. The bulk and strength of hair is from this compact area of cells.
Anatomy of the Hair Shaft- Cuticle layers bind the cortex bundles together- Cortex provides the hair’s tensile strengthCuticle layers protect cortex fibers from frictionand mechanical damage- Cuticle responsible for surface properties ofhair: shine, smoothness
What is the normal cycle of hair growth and loss? The normal cycle of hair growth lasts for 2 to 3 years. Each hair grows approximately 1 centimeter per month during this phase. About 90 percent of the hair on your scalp is growing at any one time. About 10 percent of the hair on your scalp, at any one time, is in a resting phase. After 3 to 4 months, the resting hair falls out and new hair starts to grow in its place.
What causes excessive hair loss?1-About 3 or 4 months after an illness or a major surgery, you may suddenly lose a large amount of hair. This hair loss is related to the stress of the illness and is temporary.2-Hormonal problems may cause hair loss. If your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive, your hair may fall out. This hair loss usually can be helped by treatment thyroid disease. Hair loss may occur if male or female hormones, known as androgens and estrogens, are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss.
3-Many women notice hair loss about 3 months after theyve had a baby. This loss is also related to hormones. During pregnancy, high levels of certain hormones cause the body to keep hair that would normally fall out. When the hormones return to pre-pregnancy levels, that hair falls out and the normal cycle of growth and loss starts again.
4- Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine. Medicines that can cause hair loss include blood thinners (also called anticoagulants), medicines used for gout, high blood pressure or heart problems, vitamin A (if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants.5-Certain infections can cause hair loss. Fungal infections of the scalp can cause hair loss in children. The infection is easily treated with antifungal medicines.6-hair loss may occur as part of an underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. Since hair loss may be an early sign of a disease, it is important to find the cause so that it can be treated.
Can certain hairstyles or treatments cause hairloss?Yes. If you wear pigtails or cornrows or use tight hairrollers, the pull on your hair can cause a type of hairloss called traction alopecia (say: al-oh-pee-sha). If thepulling is stopped before scarring of the scalpdevelops, your hair will grow back normally.However, scarring can cause permanent hair loss. Hotoil hair treatments or chemicals used in permanents(also called "perms") may cause inflammation(swelling) of the hair follicle, which can result inscarring and hair loss.
