Millions of men and women around the under are fully aware of the effect that hair fall has on their lives. The shock, sadness, and blow to the self-image is never good experience to have. Fortunately we live in a day and age when armed with powerful tools, knowledge and better understanding of how the hair cycle works and reacts, dermato-trichologist are able to use introduce new and more effect hair fall treatments to get rid of the debilitating problem of hair loss.

Most of us think hair loss is limited to ageing men (uncles as they are teased) but women and children can also face the problem.  We all know and understand that some amount of hair loss is part of the normal growth and replacement cycle of our body.  Hair loss happens when this normal cycle gets disrupted. This can happen because of many reasons such as

  • Genetics: 95% of hair loss especially pattern baldness in men and women is because of genetics and heredity factor. This condition is called androgenetic alopecia.

The remaining 95% of cases of hair fall are caused because of

  • Diet: Lack of nutrients in your daily diet cause the hair follicles to weaken and the anagen stage fails to take off in a healthy manner.
  • Stress: Stress affects the entire body. You might notice the sudden greying and hair fall after a few week after a stressful period of life.
  • Illness and medications: Treatments for cancer such as radiation treatment, unusual high levels of vitamin A and medications for blood pressure, heart problems, depression, and diabetes etc. cause hair fall.
  • Pregnancy
  • Iron deficiency
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome in women
  • Endocrine diseases
  • Excessive use of improper hair styling and use of hair products
  • Radiation therapy and chemotherapy
  • Disease and fungal infections in the scalp
  • Childbirth
  • Telogen effluvium: In this condition the hair shreds too fast because the hair growth shifts to telogen stage of the growth cycle.
  • Trichotillomania: In this condition there is a compulsion to pull out the scalp hair, eyebrow hair, and eyelashes.
  • Cicatricle Areata: The body’s immune system attacks the stem cells in the hair bulbs. This condition causes permanent hair loss, which cannot be retrieved.

Know your hair

We often take the hair for granted and not notice until they are gone. Just like you pay special attention to the small before wrinkles on the face you must also keep an eye on the hair so to speak. Hair follicles are the powerhouse for hair growth. The healthier the follicles, the lesser the hair fall. They are available all over the body except lips, palms and soles and need oxygen, nutrients and minerals to remain in the pink.

Hair follicles are self-regenerating. The follicle stem cells that live in the hair bulb divide and renew. But unlike the other stem cells only one half of the stem cells keep developing and the other half stays put for future renewal.

How does the hair grow?

The hair grow in four stages. Every hair has its own growth cycle and fortunately for us these cycles are not in sync with each other.

Anagen phase/ Growth phase:

In this growth phase the follicle stem cells start growing, become pigmented, and create the new hair shaft. This phase lasts for about 2-8 years and the hair grow @ half inch per month.

Exogen phase:

In this phase the old, dead hair shaft is pushed out to make room for the new hair to grow.

Anagen Finished:

The new hair comes out the surface of the skin and keeps growing. You will be able to see new hair on the scalp.

Catagen phase:

The transition period from growth to resting phase. This phase lasts for about 1-2 weeks. The lower part of the hair follicle shrinks and it starts to regress.

Telogen phase:

This is the phase in which the hair growth stops. The phase lasts for about five months and at the end of the resting period the hair stats to fall.

In androgenetic alopecia, because of the Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) hormone the size of the hair follicles reduces and the anagen phase decreases and telogen grows longer. Slowly this results in thin, short hair and balding spots start to appear.

  • Pull test to determine the shedding process
  • Scalp biopsy to check for infections and problems
  • Light microscopy to check for disorders of the hair shaft

Trichologist in India will also ask about your diet, exercise routine and if any recent events triggered the hair fall. Have you ever wondered why the pattern hair loss starts with only front and top? This is because the hormone sensitive follicles are found in these parts of the scalp only.

Minoxidil is available in lotion and cream form.
    • Propecia: This is popularly also known as Finasteride and is taken in a pill form and it works only for men. It keeps the testosterone from forming DHT. Finasteride should only be taken in the supervision of the hair doctor. Women should strictly NOT use this medication.
