What Products are right for me?

Hair loss is not one condition. While some types of hair loss and thinning hair are certainly more common than others, there are many different reasons for male hair loss and female hair loss.
 
While there are many possible reasons for someone to lose their hair - including serious diseases, reaction to certain medications, and, in rare cases, extremely stressful events - most hair loss can be blamed on heredity. The good news is that, in many cases, you can take action to reduce hair loss or prevent hair loss.
 
In order to know the best hair loss treatment option for you, it’s important to recognize the type of hair loss you are experiencing and the cause of your hair loss.
Androgenic Alopecia: “Male Pattern Baldness“
Androgenetic alopecia is hereditary hair loss and is frequently called male pattern baldness (MPB). However, despite the name, androgenetic alopecia occurs in both men and women.

This condition is responsible for the vast majority of hair loss in men and is also the number one cause of female pattern hair loss.

Androgenetic alopecia accounts for a slow decline in scalp hair density. Male pattern baldness sufferers inherit hair follicles with a genetic sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a derivative or by-product of testosterone. Hair follicles sensitive to DHT begin to miniaturize, shortening the lifespan of each hair follicle affected. Eventually, these affected follicles stop producing cosmetically acceptable hair.
When testosterone converts into DHT it has a miniaturizing effect on the hair follicle which leads to thinning and ultimately hair loss. Also, in women, low levels of estrogen and progesterone can be the culprit.
Alopecia Areata
 
This form of alopecia affects about only 2% of the population. It is a condition where the body’s own immune system attacks the hair follicles. The result is patchy bald spots on the scalp. The exact cause of this condition is unknown, but it is likely tied to stress and/or traumatic events. It usually starts small, with one or more smooth patches, and grows from there.
 
The hair growth cycle also reacts to an internal imbalance that can be caused by hormonal or external factors. Medications, illness, childbirth, extreme dieting and emotional trauma can all contribute to diffuse alopecia or telogen effluvium.

Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia

Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA) is a type of hair loss that begins in the central portion of the scalp, spreads in an outward or centrifugal pattern and causes scarring or cicatrix of the hair follicles. The exact cause of CCCA is not known, but some experts believe it may be linked with long-term use of chemical hair treatments, such as chemical hair straighteners.

Traction Alopecia

Traction means pulling. There are many hairstyles and hair implements that can cause pulling of the hair. Traction alopecia may, over the short run cause temporary hair loss, but over time can lead to permanent hair loss where the follicles atrophy due to continued traction.

Tight ponytails and braiding can cause short broken hairs, follicular inflammation, and patchy hair loss. Hairstyles with tight braiding that can also lead to traction alopecia. Hair weaving to maintain a wig or hair system can also lead to further loss in the woven hairs.

Traumatic Alopecia (Hair Breakage)

This condition can occur at any location on the head and it is directly related to trauma or injury of the strands of hair. Common Causes of Traumatic Alopecia (Hair Breakage) include:

Excessive Chemical Use: Relaxers, dyes or the combination of both relaxers and dyes

Excessive Heat: Curling irons, flat irons, hot rollers, hot combs, blow dryers, hooded dryers

Frictional forces: Rubber bands, excessive brushing or combing

Trichotillomania

This is a disorder that results in a long-term urge to pull one’s own hair to the point where hair loss can be seen. Trichotillomania often begins in childhood and women are more commonly affected than men.

Hair Loss Caused by Stress

Stress and anxiety can cause many conditions that lead to hair loss. The female hormone cortisol can elevate and cause antigens to attack the scalp and cause hair loss. Also, stress can worsen autoimmune diseases by affecting the hypothalamus and pituitary gland which will secrete hormones that promote inflammation.

However, not all hair loss is anxiety related. However, many people start to feel stress and anxiety because they are experiencing hair loss.

Hair Loss caused by Vitamin Deficiency

Low Ferritin (iron storage) and Vitamin D are closely linked to hair shedding and hair breakage. When iron is low, the hair loses elasticity, becomes dry and brittle and easily breaks off. Loose anagen syndrome (hair that can easily be pulled out) can also occur if the connective tissue of the hair bulb is weak.

Hair Loss caused by Chemical Damage

Over-processing of the hair due to hair coloring, relaxers, perms, or highlights will cause hair breakage (Trichorrhexis Nodosa) and will cause the hair cuticle to become frayed and leak proteins. Split ends (trichoptilosis) will also occur.

Hair Loss Caused by Birth Control

Some birth control pills and IUDs can shock the body and cause hormonal imbalances that can trigger diffuse hair loss (telogen effluvium). This causes hairs to pass prematurely to the telogen stage. During typical hair growth, we normally lose between 50-100 hairs, however, due to the sudden shock to your body, you may experience excessive hair shedding which you will see in your brush or bathroom floor. This is a type of hair loss is normally temporary and self-correcting. However, in some cases, you should consult your doctor and possibly lower your dosage or switch altogether.
Hair Loss caused by Medications

Some medications can cause hair loss. If you are experiencing hair loss after taking a new medication, check with your doctor to see if your medication contraindicates hair loss. The body normally can quickly recover once adjusted to medications, however, in some cases, the hair loss will continue for as long as you take the medication.
