What causes hair loss?
- Stress: one of the first symptoms of stress can be hair loss. The bad news is, losing your hair can often be a cause of more stress and can make the problem worse.
- Poor diet: if you are lacking in essential nutrients, you may experience hair loss. As the main component of hair is protein, if this is lacking from your diet you may see a negative effect on your hair, inhibiting follicle growth.
- Smoking: As smoking reduces oxygen and increases carbon monoxide in the blood the supply to the scalp, follicles may be damaged.
- Hormonal imbalances: Hormone issues like thyroid imbalances can cause hair loss in women. Drops in oestrogen levels before and after childbirth and menopause is another reason women might experience hair loss.
- Diseases or infections: some diseases that cause fever, anaemia or damage to the skin (eczema, skin infections, trauma) can also contribute to hair loss.
- Genetics: the most common season for baldness and hair loss is genetics. It is the cause for about 90% of men and women hair loss issues. The cause is related to hormone levels changing, a trait inherited from your parents. This type of hair loss is called androgenetic alopecia, and occurs in a distinctive pattern (sometimes called male pattern hair loss or male pattern baldness) that can begin any time after puberty and becomes progressively more noticeable with age.
How does hair grow?
The hair growth cycle can be broken down into 3 stages;
- Anagen: this is the active phase of new hair formation and growth. This phase lasts between 2-5 years and the growing hair pushes the old hair out of the follicle as it grows.
- Catagen: this is the transitional phase, which lasts around 14-21 days. During this phase growth stops and the outer root, sheath detaches from the follicle wall.
- Telogen: this is the resting stage and typically lasts around 100 days for scalp hair. During this stage, hair can either be pulled out or shed. As we age, some of the follicles stop working, or in some cases, the anagen phase will get shorter and we will shed hair at a faster rate.
