Shedding hair is normal, and as we change from season to season our hair loss patterns also change. An interesting fact is that the weather affects our hair loss. In particular, we retain more hair during summer to protect our scalps from the sun. Whereas in spring and autumn we experience hair shedding, a vital part of the hair growth cycle.
Hair shedding becomes abnormal when it’s excessive. Firstly, when bald spots appear. Secondly, when thinning of the hair makes the scalp visible through the remaining strands. The cause of excessive hair loss can be varied and numerous, then again there are solutions.
Yes, hair loss can be a sign of serious illnesses. Even so, try to stay calm as stress can make it worse – and that’s the last thing you want! Medical conditions including thyroid diseases and lupus are serious causes of hair loss, together with autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases.
When you suddenly lose hair across your body, as well as your head, it is a sign of a medical condition. You should certainly see your doctor as soon as possible as it can be something serious. Labwork/ blood test will show your doctor the exact cause of your severe hair loss. Which will subsequently enable them to create a tailored treatment plan and effectively reverse your hair loss.
When you’re fighting an illness the body prioritises vital organs. Thus supplying the most nutrients to your heart, liver, and kidneys etc. So “minor” things like hair follicles suffer, which forces the hairs into the telogen phase, resulting in dramatic hair loss. To conclude, you need to investigate the cause of your type of hair loss and not just brush it off, (excuse the pun). Your body is neglecting your hair for a reason.
If all of a sudden your hair falls out (also described as excessive hair shedding) you need to analyse your health. For women, pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause are common causes of sudden hair loss. Whereas in men, medication and hormone changes are typical causes of dramatic thinning of hair and male pattern baldness. But also anaemia and thyroid disorders are some health conditions that cause hair to fall out suddenly.
The most common cause of hair loss in men and women is androgenetic alopecia, which is hereditary. However, with female pattern baldness, the hair fall is gradual rather than sudden.
Your hair is suddenly falling out excessively because of an imbalance internally. Basically, it could be diet-related or a sign of a medical health condition. Other signs of illness that can occur with hair loss include weight loss, skin inflammation, flaking skin and more.
Then again, increased hair fall can be completely normal too. Because there could be a large number of your hairs reaching the telogen hair growth stage at the same time. There are numerous causes of hair loss (16 reasons in fact). Hair loss can be:
A healthy, balanced diet is important to reverse hall fall. When you consume sufficient nutrients you’ll notice an improvement in hair growth immediately. As previously mentioned, Vitamin D and iron are important for hair growth. In other words, a diet rich in vitamins, protein and iron will immediately help to improve the quality of your hair.
Kiwi juice is the number one drink for hair growth because it’s rich in vitamin E. Kiwi’s are also high in Vitamin D which aids in the production of collagen, cell growth and stimulates hair follicles. Other drinks include smoothies, such as:
Pregnancy, menopause, autoimmune diseases, radiation therapy, Coronavirus and anaemia are some of the causes of hair loss in women. Generally, hormone changes are the most common cause of hair loss, but women don’t openly speak about it. In fact, hair loss occurs in 1 in 3 women!
Discovering and addressing the cause of hair loss will enable you to grow new hair. Once you have identified the cause, there are ways to rectify it. Increasing your vitamin D intake will cure your hair loss, for example.
There are both temporary and permanent types of treatment for hair loss. Minoxidil and Finasteride are medications that regrow hair. They’re both effective treatments, but as soon as you stop using them, your hair fall will come back.
The only permanent solution for growing new hair is a hair transplant. It’s the only effective way to stop hair loss and restore hair where there’s balding. For a natural finish, hairs are implanted in the direction of natural hair growth. This treatment for hair loss is only needed once to retore hair growth. However, further treatments may be needed depending on the severity of the baldness.
The causes of hair loss are broad and numerous. To stop hair fall it’s important to identify the cause in order to reverse hair loss. By changing or rectifying the thing that’s causing your hair to fall out, e.g. low iron, you will start to see new hair growth. However, in some cases where the hair loss is genetic, or not reversible, a hair transplant is the most effective treatment.
