Help, my Hair!
Hair is – together with the skin – also often called “the mirror of our body”. Hair loss can be the result of a physical or psychological ailment, and vice versa, hair or hair growth problems can lead to serious psychological problems and even depression.
CAUSES OF HAIR LOSS
There are many possible causes and different types of hair loss, or alopecia. Identifying the exact cause is the first step of treatment.
A healthy person loses an average of 50 to 100 hairs per day. This has no visible consequences since the same number of hair also grows every day.
However, if you lose significantly more hair per day, this is called hair loss. This can also have visible consequences in the form of thinning of the hair and even over time bald spots also can appear on the head.
Hair loss generally starts on top of the head or around the crown. This can be caused by hormones, stress, fatigue, an unhealthy diet, smoking or as a side effect of certain medicines. For various diseases, such as cancer, hair loss is a result of treatment (chemotherapy or radiation).
TYPES OF HAIR LOSS
There are many different types of hair loss. The most common are:
- Alopecia Androgenetica: This is the classic male hair loss and is very common.
- Alopecia Areata, a spot-wise form, expressing an autoimmune process.
- Chemo treatment,with anticancer drugs, often (usually temporary) hair loss occurs.
- Traction Alopecia you get by pulling the hair (too) tight in ponytails or braids.
- Trichotillomanie is the compulsion of pulling out the own hair.
- Baldness due to substances that affect the hair root, such as thallium poisoning..
