Hair Loss

We all lose hairs, up to 50 a day, but hair loss only becomes noticeable when fewer new hairs are produced to replace the lost ones. If hair falls out in patches, the condition is known as alopecia areata. If all the hair on the scalp falls out this is alopecia totalis. If all body hair is lost, this is alopecia universalis.

The single most common cause of hair loss in men and women is androgenetic alopecia (AGA), also known as male pattern baldness since it is most likely to occur in men with a family history of balding. This type of hair loss is an unexplained response to the body’s production of androgens or male sex hormones but other causes include fungal infections, thyroid problems, severe illness and the use of certain prescription medicines.

Many hair loss shampoos and hair growth shampoos leave a residue behind since many contain silicones and waxes which clog the hair follicles encouraging hair loss and thinning. 

In recent years, cutting-edge supplements have been shown to help sufferers of hair loss and when used in conjunction with specific hair shampoos for thinning hair, a significant difference may be seen.
