The Number 1 Cause of Hair Loss in WOMEN (+ how to beat it and tips to grow your hair)
Hair growth and hair loss
Having enough hair on your head: For the vast majority of us, this is the prerequisite for good self-confidence. Normally, humans have around 100,000 hairs on their heads. Their renewal is a complex cycle. Every healthy hair stays vital for several years and grows constantly. But at some point, hair growth stops. A virgin hair pushes up from the root, the old one falls out. If hair loses its vitality prematurely or regrowth is disrupted, hair loss occurs. The number of lost hairs then clearly exceeds that of the specimens that follow. The most common causes of hair loss are:
- hereditary (androgenetic) hair loss
- Deficiency or stress-related hair problems
- disease-related hair loss
Only an experienced doctor can determine what type of hair loss you have. Depending on the manifestation of the hair loss, various examination methods can be used.
Hereditary hair loss
This is the type of hair loss that is most common in both men and women. This hereditary hair loss is also called androgenetic hair loss because it is triggered by androgens, i.e. male sex hormones. The technical term is androgenetic alopecia.
- Typical signs in men are initially a receding hairline, and finally the loss of hair at the top of the back of the head.
- The hair loss zones can expand from the receding hairline to extensive baldness. Sometimes all that’s left is a fringe of hair at the back and sides. How far this goes in individual cases varies.
- In affected women, androgenetic hair loss often manifests itself in a thin parting or a high forehead. Others lose more hair on the entire scalp, so-called diffuse hair loss. Younger women can also be among those affected.
In the case of hereditary hair loss, various therapies are possible: from hormone preparations to hair root therapy and hair transplantation. A hair transplant is the only procedure that can cause new hair growth in areas that have become bald. Other treatments can only halt the progression of hair loss.
Deficiency or stress-related hair loss
An unhindered supply of nutrients is crucial for healthy hair growth. If there are disturbances here, hair roots can be so weakened that there is increased loss. A hereditary hair loss can also accelerate in this way. Incorrect care is sometimes added.
- Bad dietary habits can lead to the hair roots being under-nourished. This is how you gradually lose more and more hair.
- Stress-related hair loss is caused by excessive tension in the scalp. Blood circulation and thus the supply of nutrients are impaired.
- The supply of the hair roots can be disturbed, especially due to stress in everyday life and at work.
In the case of hair loss caused by deficiency or stress, for example, a targeted therapy to improve the nutrient situation, such as a hair root treatment, can help. With the Mesohair method, medication or valuable ingredients can be brought into the area around the hair roots. For other causes, a relaxation treatment for the scalp can help.
Disease-related hair loss
Certain diseases can also cause hair loss. Sometimes the hair then falls out in narrowly defined zones, sometimes there is diffuse hair loss. There are many possible causes here. Other areas or functions of the body may also be affected. An extensive physical examination by an experienced specialist is essential. There are many different forms of disease-related hair loss:
- In the case of circular hair loss (alopecia areata), round, bald spots occur, but other types of hair loss also occur. The cause of circular hair loss is an excessive immune reaction.
- Fungal infections or psoriasis are usually accompanied by a red, itchy scalp. Hair loss can also be the result here.
- Viruses and bacteria are also possible triggers.
- An overactive or underactive thyroid can also cause hair loss.
- Hair loss can be triggered by certain medications that are taken to alleviate general illnesses.
- There are also diseases with scarring hair loss. The hair roots in the affected areas then die off once and for all.
The underlying diseases can be treated with a wide variety of methods, for example with antibiotics, cortisone, antimycotics and other agents. Depending on the disease, only the affected areas are treated or medication is taken.
