Like a novel, everything has got its beginning and as some things certainly appear to be normal in the initial stages, their diversion to become a catastrophe in life is never ascertained. Most stories begin in a similar way, especially when it comes to hair loss.
Scientifically, shedding hair is part of the human hair growth cycle and it is said to be normal. While the main hair growth phases are known as the Anagen (hair growth), Catagen (transition phase), and telogen (resting phase), other studies provide a detailed cycle consisting of the Exogen phase (shedding phase).
In a day, a human can shed 100 hairs or up to 125 and to a healthy person, this is considered normal. However, should one lose this quantity on a daily basis and remain safe?
When Shedding will only give you a bald spot?
In the current era, there are numerous factors that can trigger hair loss or baldness earlier than the age of 65. These include stress, illness, unhealthy lifestyle, a strict diet, trauma, treatments and genetics.
Males or females where androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness) runs in the family, extra caution is required by monitoring the number of hair follicles you loose on a daily basis.
Telogen effluvium is another type of hair loss that manifests itself in unrecognizable forms and by the time you notice, a number of hair follicles have been weakened and there is absolute hair loss.
Having immune issues won’t also spare you from experiencing onset hair loss as the hair growth cycle largely depends on your immune. In this case alopecia areata, a common hair loss disorder where circular bald spots are formed in localized regions is likely to emerge. Although there are chances of re-growing your hair after a few months, some individuals continue losing hair to trigger conditions known as alopecia areata totalis and alopecia areata universalis.
There is no way losing 100 hair strands a day can leave you with an ideal hair density. Consider consulting a dermatologist or a hair specialist to reduce the rate of hair fall or eliminate it completely.
Stress & You
Responsibilities, tight working schedules, fear, illness, and life problems commonly trigger mental or physical stress. It is ideal to relax as much as possible by going in for a talk therapy, a vacation, spending time with your loved ones among other activities.
A hair Care Routine
It is first of all important to understand the nature of your hair. Harsh hair products when you have weak hair strands will definitely leave you with a poor hair density. Use ideal hair products that include a shampoo, moisturizer, a conditioner, hair serum, hair oils among others. Complete the routine with a balanced diet.
