What is hair fall?

Hair fall is a common occurrence and it has become more evident in adults now. Human beings have a normal tendency to lose 50-100 hair in a day. Hair fall can gradually develop over a year or all of a sudden, depending on the cause behind it. It can affect the scalp or the whole body and it can either be permanent or temporary, depending upon various factors. Any individual can lose hair on their head but men often experience hair fall & baldness more in comparison to women. It can occur due to hormonal changes, medical conditions or it might be a normal part of aging. The good news is in most cases it can be reversed with the right medication & treatments. Although it’s important to consult a hair specialist/ trichologist timely so that further hair fall can be prevented.

Myths about Hair Fall

There are many myths concerning hair fall. None of statements mentioned below are true:

  • Excessive shampooing the hair can cause hair fall.
  • Dandruff leads to permanent hair loss in the majority of women.
  • Your hair will grow back twice if you shave your head.
  • Increasing circulation by standing on the head increases hair growth.
  • Brushing the hair 100 times a day will help to keep hair healthy.
  • Hats and wigs cause hair loss in women.

What are the causes of hair fall?

Hair loss is usually not much noticeable if new hair keeps growing simultaneously. Hair loss occurs when the same hair fails to replace the hair which is thinning. These are some of the factors which lead to hair fall. Let us understand as below:

  • Hereditary Androgenic alopecia, an inherited condition that occurs with aging, is the most common cause of hair loss. It is often known as male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness and affects both men and women. In men, it appears as a receding hairline and bald spots, whereas in women, it appears as thinning hair along the crown of the head.
  • Hormones Fluctuation in hormones could also lead to hair loss. There are a variety of conditions which can cause permanent or temporary hair loss including hormonal changes such as pregnancy, childbirth, medical problems.
  • Supplements Hair fall can also be due to side effects of drugs, such as those that are used for cancer, heart problems, BP etc.
  • Stress Taking too much stress at times could also lead to hair loss. Many people experience hair loss after a physical or emotional stress but that is temporary.
  • Hairstyle and hair treatments Excessive hairstyling or hairstyles that pull the hair tight, such as pigtails or cornrows, can lead to traction alopecia, a kind of hair loss.
  • Diet Hair loss can also be caused by a low-protein or extremely calorie-restricted diet.
  • Burns Hair loss can occur as a result of burns, accidents, or X-rays. Unless a scar develops, normal hair growth returns once the damage heals.

What are the types of hair fall?

Some types of hair fall are permanent whereas some are temporary. The most common types are as below:

  • Androgenic Alopecia This is a type of hair loss which results due to hereditary baldness and affects both males as well as females. Hair loss caused by androgenic alopecia is usually gradual.
  • Telogen Effluvium This is a type of hair loss that causes excess shedding of hair in a short time. If the body experiences something really stressful (physical or emotional shock), then after a few months, Telogen effluvium happens. It can also be a result of hormonal changes. It can also happen due to hormonal changes such as pregnancy, child birth and menopause. Some other causes include inefficient diet, starting or ending of birth control. This type resolves on its own once the cause is addressed.
  • Alopecia Areata This is a type of autoimmune disease which results in hair loss from the body as well as the head. In most probability, it leads to total hair loss. Some persons with alopecia areata lose hair from the eyebrows, eyelashes, or other areas of the body in addition to the scalp.
  • Anagen Effluvium Some medical therapies cause this rapid hair loss. This frequently occurs as a result of radiation or chemotherapy. When the treatment is over, the hair normally regrows.

Who are the suitable candidates for Hair fall Treatment?

  • Both men and women are suitable candidates for hair fall treatment.
  • Men with male-pattern baldness or women who experience hair thinning can consider getting hair fall treatment.
  • Any individual who experiences hair fall due to stress, injury, burns or scalp injuries, hormonal issues can also plan to get the treatment done.
  • Individuals having realistic expectations of the procedure or who lost hair due to any medical problems are also suitable candidates for this procedure.

What to expect after Hair fall treatment?

With the right treatment, one can get rid of hair fall problems. Results of each treatment varies patient to patient and sometimes a combination of treatments may be needed. During the consultation with the doctor, the best treatment plan is decided which is best suited for the patient.

Also, one must understand that:

  • Not all types of hair loss can be treated but in most cases further hair loss can be prevented.
  • The treatment can require months before one notices the results.
  • Hair loss can be stubborn at times and needs trying a variety of methods.

How to plan the Hair fall Treatment?

Before the hair fall treatment begins, the hair specialist doctor in Noida at Skinlogics tries to find the cause of the hair loss by gathering all the necessary information from the patient. Questions are asked to know how long the patient has been experiencing hair fall problems. Also, the doctor examines the scalp where the person is experiencing hair loss. Gently pulling the hair gives an idea to the doctor about the hair and whether it is inclined to break more. If the hair specialist doctor suspects that the cause of hair fall could be a medical problem, deficiency of vitamins, hormonal imbalance, one might need to get a blood test done or a biopsy. Once this information is available, it is easy for the doctor to identify the root cause of the problem. The doctor may require additional information at times. If someone has multiple causes, this could be the case. For example, a lady may have had a baby recently and is experiencing noticeable hair loss as a result. She could potentially be suffering from unnoticed early hereditary loss.

What are the options available for best Hair fall treatments in Noida?

The treatment options for hair fall are determined by the cause of hair fall. So, before beginning the treatment for hair fall, one should consult with a competent hair fall doctor in Noida to acquire a proper diagnosis.

Hair fall treatment should be started as soon as possible, as the earlier it is done, the better the prospects of restoring excellent hair volume.

The various treatment options are as below. The best results are usually obtained by combining various treatments. In addition, good hair and scalp care routines, such as washing hair as directed, are critical in the treatment of hair loss.

  • Oral Medications Hair loss vitamins as well as nutrients help to increase the hair growth and some medications are also taken to block the hormone formation which causes hair fall in individuals. This helps to restore the lost hair.
  • Applying Scalp Lotions Lotions such as minoxidil rogaine prevent hair fall, regrows hair and increases the hair volume by circulating blood on the scalp region.
  • Mesotherapy It requires injections of vitamins and growth factors which promotes new hair growth. It also boosts blood circulation over the scalp.
  • Dermaroller Dermaroller is a treatment in which a drum-shaped tool with small needles attached is rolled across the scalp to produce micro-injuries. This causes the production of growth factors, which help with the development of new hair follicles.
  • Growth Factor Concentrate It encourages the development of new hair follicles and boosts hair thickness and volume by using growth factor concentrate from the patient’s own blood. This is the most commonly suggested hair fall treatment all across the globe. The results are highly appreciable with repetitive sessions. Usually, 4-8 sessions are recommended depending on the severity of the hair fall and expected results.
  • Hair Transplant Hair transplant is not really a hair fall treatment but a hair loss treatment. Once there is permanent hair loss (baldness), no treatment methods mentioned above will be able to restore the hair growth. It is a procedure in which healthy hair follicles are transferred from the donor area to the frontal part of the scalp (recipient area). It is recommended for males and females with a higher grade of hair loss due to androgenetic alopecia. It takes 9-12 months to see the full hair growth after hair transplant surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Hair loss can appear in different ways which completely depends on what is causing it. It can take months to come or can appear gradually and can affect the scalp or the whole body at once. Some of the symptoms of hair fall are as below:

  • Thinning on top of the head: This is by far the most common type of hair loss, which has been affecting many people as they age. This is experienced in men.
  • Overall thinning: This is common in women. They don’t lose hair in patches but experience generalised hair thinning with a widened middle parting.
  • Patchy bald spots/ alopecia areata: Some people lose hair in circular/patchy spots on the scalp, beard or eyebrows. The skin starts becoming itchy or painful when the hair starts falling out. It is triggered by an autoimmune disorder.
  • Sudden loosening of hair: A shock i.e. emotional or physical can cause the hair to fall out. A handful of hair can be expected in such a case. This is a temporary hair loss.
  • Ringworm/ Patches over scalp: Some swelling, redness, broken hair could be seen on the scalp which is a sign of ringworm.

Our hair and overall health are affected by skipping meals, consuming insufficient nutrients, and engaging in poor eating habits. Things that are difficult to identify in your health are evident first in your hair. So, while we may appear to be in good health, if our hair becomes dull or falls out excessively, we should not disregard it.

The rate at which hair grows is largely determined by genetics, hormones, and nutrition; however, the average hair growth cycle is 0.3 to 0.4 mm each day. The majority of hair strands grow at a rate of 0.3 to 0.4 mm every day.

Shampooing on a regular basis keeps the hair and scalp healthy and has nothing to do with hair loss. Coloring, perming, or styling the hair on a regular basis, on the other hand, might damage the hair and cause it to fall out. High-heat hair appliances, such as blow dryers and curling irons, can cause hair damage and breaking, which can appear as baldness.

On an average, women lose 50-100 strands of hair in a day and for a man, it is 25-50 strands per day. Most of the hair fall occurs when we are occupied and fail to notice it. To understand whether a person has a serious hair fall problem he/she can do a self-test. Run the fingers through the scalp steadily. If 5-7 strands of hair come out, consider it to be normal whereas if 15 or more strands of hair fall out, this is a serious problem and needs to be treated before it gets severe.
