It can happen to anyone, at any time, and while it is bad enough for a man, the thought of hair loss can be very traumatic for a woman. The stress this causes can make the hair loss worse, adding to the problem, and if you should start to notice clumps of hair on your pillow in the mornings, this could be the start of something serious. Like any other part of the human body, the hair is a reflection of the general state of health, and inadequate nutrition can often trigger hair loss in a person.
There are many things that can cause hair loss, with perhaps some loss of hair on the top of the scalp, and the cause is often due to a sex hormone, which is known as DHT. We know little about the production of DHT, except that it is genetic, and when the hormone is secreted, the hair follicles begin to miniaturise each time they regrow. All hair follicles will eventually be shed and are replaced by new follicles, and this is perfectly normal, however, with the excess of DHT, the new follicles are smaller and this shrinkage is likely to continue until the hair follicle no longer regrows.
Beware of False Claims
The market is awash with hair loss remedies, with many claiming to totally cure the problem. There may be some products that promote a return to healthy growth, and some probably encourage the return of healthy hair, yet there are no hard and fast statistics. In most cases, the hair loss disappears as quickly as it came, and with certain treatments, the loss can be discreetly screened until the new hair grows back. Potions and medications will be accompanied with bold statements of success, yet there are no known cures for hair loss.
They have become an essential part of female fashion over the past decade, but hair extensions are also widely used to treat female hair loss. One example of this is a treatment called “The Enhancer”, which involves a very fine mesh that is attached to the scalp using the person’s hair, and then extensions are woven into the mesh to replace the missing hair. There are no adhesives or heat used to attach the device to a person’s scalp, and once fitted, you can treat it like you would your normal hair. This is the perfect solution for female hair loss, and the device can easily be removed when the original hair has regrown, and what’s more, it does not inhibit the regrowth in any way.
There are market leaders in this new technology and they have easy to navigate websites, so a simple online search should reveal a hair loss studio in your area, and by talking to the experts, you can quickly find out the best solution to your hair loss problem.
If you think you are losing more hair than normal, and notice a thinning area, it is best to consult the experts, who can quickly identify the problem and recommend an appropriate course of action.
