Hair Casualties

Effective hair problems can only be treated if we identify the right cause for them. Nowadays every man and woman is facing it. There are many altered reasons for hair loss. In males, the most vital role is played by genetics and hereditary factors in case of this hair loss. This can partly be named orogenetic or male pattern baldness. It may occur due to a high level of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) on the scalp. This is explained by the loss of hair on the temples and upper region of the head and the presence of thinned hairs elsewhere. There is no doubt that balding is usually associated with advancing age. Due to aging, the rate of hair growth also lessens. The strands of hair become smaller and become less pigmented and follicles stop producing new hair. Not only men but also women with age face baldness. This condition is called female pattern baldness. Hair becomes less compressed and the scalp may become visible.

Decline in Hair Growth Due to Stress

The main ins and outs which cause extreme hair loss are autoimmune disorders, hormonal changes, stress, hypertension, and thyroid disorders. Some usage of drugs can also cause hair damage. Such medications that are used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, cholesterol levels, ulcers, gout, etc. can seriously result in the deprivation of hair. So long-term stress can put the life of people at a risk resulting in serious health complications. It can make the hair follicles into the “resting” phase so that no new hairs will grow out of the scalp along with causing no production of hair strands.

Stress is related to a form of hair loss termed telogen effluvium. A question aroused: what is telogen effluvium? It is a poorly defined condition in which there is turgid thinning of hair and the hair on the top of the scalp weakens more than on the other sides and back of the scalp. The shedding of hair from 50 to 100 is considered normal but if you see unusual shedding then it will be TF. However, it resolves completely over 3 to 6 months and is then cured without any treatment.

What is Alopecia Areata?

It is an autoimmune illness which means it has attacked any part of your body mistakenly. This illness will lead to an attack on the follicles. It is caused by less consumption of food that is rich in vitamin D in some people. It cannot be cured but the hair can regrow as it does not nearly destroy the hair follicles. With the imbalance of hormones, the hair cycle and hair follicles are affected resulting in different issues.


To control any health condition prevention is one of the best methods. However, it is possible to control or even lessen hair fall. Some of the prevention methods are

  • having a balanced diet
  • avoiding any harsh hairstyles
  • switching medication in order to avoid effects
  • averting the twisting of hair

However, hair loss can also be treated through other methods such as therapies, surgery, use of wigs and hair pieces, using different, oils, and many more home remedies.


It includes the use of several amalgams of ointments, creams, drugs, and shampoos which are surely pre-subscribed by any dermatologist.

Hair Transplantation

The fraction of hair transplantation is widespread in men, especially for those who are facing male pattern baldness. In this process, hair follicles are removed from the back of the head where they are sturdy to DHT and then inserting them on the scalp.Although it regrows the hair but carries the risk of serious complications like bleeding from the edges of scars and causing infections. Some skin plugs also die leading to another surgery but it can be treated by having Minoxidil or Rogaine medications.

By Fusion of Different Oiling Methods

According to different dermatologists, it is considered a myth that oiling can reduce hair loss. Oils only nourish our hair and do not initiates its growth from the scalp. So oiling only protects a woman’s beautiful hair from dryness and fizziness by making a protective coat over the hair shaft. If people are getting trouble with dandruff in their hair, then the only ultimate solution is not oiling but to use a 2% ketoconazole or zinc pyridine-based shampoo.

By Consuming a Good Diet and Having Supplements

Some dermatologist advised their patients with supplements of vitamins A, B, C, D, and E and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and chromium. Consumption of a good high-protein diet can also prevent hair loss. So if you are facing extreme hair fall despite any disease it may be due to a deficiency of iron and protein in your diet. For further issues seek your doctor’s help.
