Vitalize All-Natural Hair Treatment
Women lose hair every day, most of the time without batting an eye: showering, blow drying, brushing, practically any time we interact with our hair or scalp, we cause hair to fall out. We shouldn’t be too concerned for the most part because hair goes through growth and loss cycles naturally, meaning new hair usually grows to replace hair that falls out.
When we notice more advanced and substantial hair loss, it may be time to visit a dermatologist to see if a more serious medical condition is to blame. Here are nine potential culprits for hair loss which can be referred to a doctor.
Hair Loss Conditions & What You Need To Do
A condition occurring after pregnancy, major surgery, considerable weight loss, or extreme stress, Telogen effluvium causes people to lose copious amounts of hair daily during shampooing, styling, or of the brushing the hair. Those women who experience such a stressful time can experience symptoms of telogen effluvium 6 weeks to 3 months afterward, until handfuls of hair can be lost.
This can also take place as a side-effect of some medications like antidepressants, beta-blockers, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication. This condition can cause hair to shift more rapidly than during the normal growth phase into its resting phase prior to advancing faster into the shedding (telogen) phase.
Means of reliving this condition can depend on the stressor—from stopping medication to finding ways to reduce anxiety.
Other cases of hair loss can be blamed on genetics, termed androgenic alopecia. This most common cause of hair loss can come from your mother or father’s side. Most women suffering from hereditary hair loss can start to develop thinner hair behind their bangs, sometimes spreading through the entire scalp and can begin as early as your 20s.
You should consult with a dermatologist who may recommend a topical medication or in pill form, although women who are nursing or pregnant should refrain from using minoxidil.
Many women suffer from some type of thyroid disease—an under- or over-productive thyroid gland. The thyroid hormone controls many aspects of how the body functions, including hair, nail, and skin growth. Women with thyroid disease may experience symptoms on top of brittle and breaking hair such as weight gain, fatigue, constipation, depression, and difficulty concentrating.
A doctor can prescribe you hormone medication to balance your thyroid hormones.
Along with a host of other symptoms such as headaches and swollen joints, Lupus can contribute to hair loss. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune ailment where the body’s immune system targets its own (healthy) tissues, typically affecting women of childbearing age. You should see a rheumatologist if you are experiencing hair loss along with pain in your joints, fatigue, and other lupus symptoms which can be treated with oral medications.
Some women are simply iron deficient, meaning the blood is lacking in red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the cells in the body. Those with iron deficiencies can experience weakness, pale skin, and headaches, on top of hair loss. You can take steps on your own to remedy iron deficiency including consumer more iron-rich foods including beef, pork, leafy greens, and beans, or take iron supplements on the recommendation of a physician.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome can also be responsible for hair loss in addition to acne, ovarian cysts, and irregular periods. Upwards of five million American women suffer from this ailment, which is another type of hormonal imbalance affecting several regions of the body. You can identify whether you have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or not if you begin to notice an increase in hair growth on your body accompanying hair loss from the scalp.
Hair needs a healthy environment in which to grow, meaning if your scalp is inflamed due to dandruff, psoriasis, or fungal infections, you could be seeing hair loss and scalp irritation. Each of these conditions will need a prescription medication of some type as directed by a dermatologist.
Stress or illness is known to sometimes cause Alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder where the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles. This type of alopecia causes baldness on the scalp, eyebrows, or legs. This condition is often treated with intralesional corticosteroids. Reducing stress levels can also help.
Finally, it is widely known that shampooing, styling, and dyeing the hair in excess can result in hair loss. The heat and chemicals typically involved can cause hair to weaken, break, and fall away. If such over-treating of your hair is causing it to fall out, try to refrain from applying heat to your hair by putting your hair dryer on a cooler setting and reduce the use of flat irons. In addition, do not color your hair more than a shade or two from normal as the more drastic the color change will require more chemicals.
