Hair Fall

Hair Fall

Hair Fall remains a very common problem at different ages. It’s normal to lose between 50 – 100 hairs a day without even noticing but losing more hair than normal is an indication for an underlying cause.


As many factors play a role in hair diseases, this results in different patterns of hair loss. Early diagnosis & treatment will help to stop further progress of condition and stimulate hair regrowth.


What are the most common causes of hair loss?  

There are a wide range of conditions that can result in hair loss.

1.Temporary hair loss

This type of hair loss is caused by an excessive shedding of telogen (resting) hair. It might be acute or chronic. Hair fall usually starts several months after a person experiences a traumatic event or stress as an illness, stress, surgery or nutritional deficiencies.


2. Hereditary hair loss  

 Hair thins over the top of the head and on the sides causing male and female patterns of baldness. Patients complain of seeing scalp skin through hair. This type of hair loss usually runs in the family so treatment is usually required for long periods of time.


3. Alopecia Areata 

The immune system attacks hair causing hair loss. Patients have one/multiple bold spots on the scalp with no hair. Some people lose their eyelashes or eyebrows as well.


4. Scarring alopecia

Some diseases causes inflammation which destroys hair follicles and once a hair follicle is destroyed, it cannot regrow the hair. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent further hair loss.

5. Hair traction

When hair is tightly pulled back – like tight ponytails or tight braids – this continuous pulling can lead to permanent hair loss.

6. Hair Infections

Infections result in inflamed areas on the scalp, which end with hair fall and a bald area if left untreated.

7. Scalp Psoriasis

Many people who have psoriasis on their body develop psoriasis on their scalp at some point. This can lead to hair loss.
