WHAT IS HAIR LOSS
Hair loss is a common condition which is cosmetically and psychosocially distressing. It is an ever growing problem affecting about 58% of the indian population, androgenic alopecia (AGA) being the most common cause. As has the population who suffer from hair loss grown statistically, so have the options for their management. The sudden spurt in treatment/management options are majorly driven by marketing compulsion and fewer by scientific evidences. These prey on those who may be concerned about recent or dramatic hair loss. It’s always advisable to exercise caution when considering these products. Always be suspicious of treatments that offer a large benefit for very little in return. It’s always better to trust people who have maintained a high scientific temperament, been into healthcare business for long, have strong brand equity to defend and are trusted into all their fields of operations.
Normally 50 to 100 hairs are shed every day. This usually doesn’t cause noticeable thinning of scalp as new hair is growing in at the same time. Disruption in cycle of hair growth and shedding or when the damaged hair follicle is replaced with scar tissue it leads to hair loss.
It’s usually related to one or more of the following factors:
- Family history (heredity)
- Hormonal change
- Medical conditions
The interaction between the triad of, hereditary factors, male hormones, and age plays an important role in causing baldness in males. In females it is the change in the hormone levels at menopause, stress (both physical and mental), poor nutrition and ill health, which are responsible for hair loss. Damage to the follicles caused by injury, burns etc, certain medications can also lead to hair loss.
