The Genetic factor for Causing Hair Loss is Androgenic alopecia

  • Androgenic alopecia: This is the most common hereditary cause of hair loss affects both men and women. Around 60% of men and 30% of women get affected by the Androgenic alopecia as a combined effect of genes and hormone. It has been researched out that the male sex hormone Androgen when combined with the enzyme known as 5-alpha-reductase, produces DHT or Di-hydro Testosterone as a catalytic effect causes severe hair loss issue. The Androgenic alopecia issue of hair loss is measured on the Norwood scale describes the extent of loss in terms of the grading, which has 7 categories. The only permanent solution to deal with the issue of pattern baldness is the hair restoration/transplantation procedure

Autoimmune Disorder for causing Hair loss is Alopecia areata

  • Allopecia areata: When the body’s own immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles or cells associated with the hair roots a severe case of hair loss gets present, which is scientifically known as the Alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder in which hair loss presents in the form of patches or coin-shaped circular white spots that can spread all over the areas where hair growth is experienced. However, the case of Alopecia areata is not just limited to the scalp areas and affects the all-over body parts where hair growth occurs. The medications are advisable for the hair loss patients under the extreme supervision of the dermatologists or the hair restoration surgeon. It affects both men and women and a scalp biopsy is performed by the surgeon when the symptoms are seen with the patchy hair loss. Generally, the hair transplant procedure is not recommended for the Alopecia areata patients as it doesn’t get success due to loss of immunity strength of the body, which has a prime role in the success of any surgical procedure. Generally, the surgical procedure requires healing time and effect that are provided by the body’s immune system, but when it gets failure no chance of success of the procedure can be speculated. Thus, only medications are allowed to cure spot baldness.

Stress Caused Hair Loss or Telogen Effluvium

  • Telogen effluvium: Stress has a huge impact on a hair loss problem that disturbs the normal hair growth cycle. When a patient experiences a trauma, either associated with emotional or physical, it disrupts the hair growth cycle and patients find that there would be an early entry of hair roots into Telogen stage or resting phase. The early entry of hair follicles into the resting phase causes severe hair loss/fall meant every day the patient will find more than 100 hair strands while combing or taking shower. Therefore, it is needed to consult with your hair loss doctor to get the best treatment measure at the right time.
