on Common Hair Loss Problems
Early signs of hair loss are mainly visual, such as unusual hair fall-out in the shower water outlet, a small but noticeable recession of the hair at the front, or a widening parting. Others pertain to your scalp condition. We list common problems below:
Six key hair loss indicators:
- Excessive scalp oil excretion. If the situation is bad, you may still find your hair greasy after thorough shampooing.
- Lifeless and un-manageable hair.
- An itchy scalp, excessive dandruff and pimples indicating blocked and/or inflamed hair follicles.
- Hair is getting thinner and weaker causing a receding hair line and/or widening parting.
- Any signs of scalp show-through.
- Or that hair strands are less robust than you remember. This, particularly, suggests that the hair roots are weakened.
Just one of these early signs suggests you should seek professional advice. The earlier a tailor-made treatment begins, the more chance there is of saving your hair. Svenson offers a FREE initial consultation.
Lifestyle and diet
An unhealthy or irregular lifestyle such as a lack of sufficient sleep and exercise can adversely affect the transport of nutrients in the blood capillaries to hair follicles. A nutritionally unbalanced diet, or ‘crash dieting’, can both result in unhealthy hair.
The fast pace of big city living nowadays can be stressful, and fast-paced pressure can cause disturbance to your diet and deep sleep deprivation. Further, adrenaline release and constant deadline anxiety can upset hormonal balance. All of these indicators are the enemy of healthy hair growth.
Another hair enemy – DHT
Studies have proved that long-term and heavy mental stress will cause excessive adrenal gland secretion, which will cause significant amounts of DHT. The scalp will become oily, damaging the hair follicles, shortening the hair growth cycle, and eventually accelerating hair loss.
Hair transplanting is minimally invasive surgery. Sufficient hair follicles are extracted from the donation area at the back, and then transplanted to hair thinning or bald areas to redistribute the hair for an improved appearance. However, the results of hair transplantation may fall below your expectation as it is affected by various factors, such as the survival rate of the hair follicles. Moreover, it may require oral medication afterwards to inhibit DHT. This may have side effects, such as sexual dysfunction.
Treat hair loss from the root causes
Trichologists have identified 46 causes of hair loss while hair transplant is just a cosmetic measure to cover up the problem. In order to cure from the root causes, Svenson recommends a regular hair care treatment programme targeting improvement in natural hair growth, a safe and risk-free approach.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition that causes hair to fall out in round patches. It can afflict both men and women, old and young. The general situation may come from emotional stress, which leads to immune system disorders. People with eczema and sensitive skin are more likely to have alopecia areata, and heredity traits can be a contributing factor.
Check-up of scalp for prevention
The scope of alopecia areata is generally the size of a round coin, with no obvious symptoms, no pain, no itching, and no physical discomfort. Some cases of alopecia areata will heal automatically after a few months, but there is also a chance of the condition spreading. In severe cases, it can lead to the complete loss of hair on the scalp (alopecia totalis) within a few weeks. Regular examination of hair and scalp can identify the problem for early treatment.
