Types of HairLoss in Men and Women

  1. 1. http://www.1300hairloss.com.au
  2. 2.  About 30 million women are also having problems with alopecia or hair loss; this estimation is from the United States population as well. Hence, men and women have been on a steady search for an efficient hair loss treatment. The key to finding the best hair loss solution, though, is to know the cause of hair loss and indentifying the type of hair loss being experienced. In the United States alone, about 50 million men are experiencing hair loss. This may come as no surprise since it is chiefly men whom we observe to be balding. The current case, however, is that more and more women are experiencing this problematic hair condition too. http://www.1300hairloss.com.au
  3. 3.  The types of hair loss in men and women include the following:Also called patchy hair loss, this is hair loss occurring inrandom patches on any hair-bearing area of the body, butmore so on the scalp and beard areas. These hair losspatches appear as totally smooth, round, coin-sized bald spots.Medical experts have come to the conclusion that alopecia areatais classified as an autoimmune disorder where the body’s whiteblood cells wrongly attack the hair follicles, hence hampering anormal hair growth cycle.Alopecia areata is a type of hair loss not only in men and women,but it can also be a distressing condition in children. The hair losspatches usually resolve on their own, but getting steroid injectionsand applying topical minoxidil can accelerate hair regrowth. http://www.1300hairloss.com.au
  4. 4. This type of hair loss is usually an effect of radiation,medication, or chemicals. Initially, patchy hair loss isobserved, which then worsens to complete hair loss.Constant exposure to radiation treatments andundergoing chemotherapies commonly result toanagen effluvium.This type of alopecia eventually has all the hair folliclesbeing damaged; hence, they shed all the strands atthe same time. The upside to anagen effluvium is thatit is only a temporary condition; hair will most likelygrow back (about 6 months later) after thetreatments or medications. http://www.1300hairloss.com.au
  5. 5. This type of hair loss is due to the hair follicles beingprematurely pushed into the telogen (resting) phaseof the hair growth cycle.Among the many causes for such abnormalityin the hair growth cycle are emotional andphysical stress from an illness, sudden weightloss, depression, nervous breakdown,malnutrition, and pregnancy.Telogen effluvium may even be experienced byinfants, due to malnutrition. When bodystressors are moderated or eliminated, telogeneffluvium stops. http://www.1300hairloss.com.au
  6. 6. When the dermal papilla and hair folliclesare damaged due to excessive andconstant straining of the hair, tractionalopecia occurs. Frequently havinghairstyles wherein hair is tightly pulled orgreatly tensioned on the scalp results totraction alopecia.Given the aforementioned common types of hairloss in men and women, the remedy can then bedetermined or which hair loss treatment is most apt. http://www.1300hairloss.com.au
