A common cause of hair loss is when people endure a great amount of stress. This could be related to your work, family life, or health. Better known as Telogen Effluvium, this hair loss could also have ties to hormonal changes as well as poor diet. There are several ways to reduce the stress that leads to hair loss. The Dermatology Center of Indiana can help determine the kind of stress you’re currently dealing with determine if growth supplements, vitamins, or a different kind of shampoo might be needed.
Hereditary hair loss is the most usual suspect in causing hair loss. Over 80 million individuals in America face hereditary hair loss. Many people face shame or fear that they will never have their hair back, but hair loss can often be treated. Taking time to review the hair heredity found within both parent’s families can be the first step to successful treatment. Be sure to talk with your extended family to find out at what age the hair loss first started to occur and how many relatives might also be suffering from hair loss. The Dermatology Center of Indiana can then determine whether follicle replacement or regrowth should be the treatment of choice.
Hair loss can also come from injury or the overuse of hair products. When follicles are damaged, the roots die causing the hair itself to become weak or brittle. Age also plays a big part in this type of hair loss but some studies have linked environmental causes. This includes living in desert climates or interacting with certain types of desalinated water.
