Hair Fall

  • Hair Loss

What is the normal cycle of hair growth and loss?

Hair grows in three phases involving growth, degradation and resting stages which is normal for hair growth. Each strand grows up to 1 centimetre per month during the growth phase. The hair growth normally lasts for 2-6 years. During the 5th year, the hair strands fall and are replaced within 6 months. It is usual to shed about 100 hair strands each day as part of this cycle.

What are the causes of hair loss?

Balding and thinning of hair is a natural process. Many believe that ageing is the only cause of hair loss, but, here are the other causes:

  • Emotional and mental stress
  • Prolonged illness
  • Effects of major surgery
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Fungal infections on the scalp
  • Chemically treated hair – hair colouring, perming, straightening and smoothening
  • Nutritional and dietary deficiency
  • Excessive Vitamin A
  • Effects of post chemotherapy and medications

What are the common hair loss patterns?

  • Patchy hair loss: This form of hair loss can affect men, women and children. This is generally observed at well-defined areas.
  • Diffuse hair loss: This type of hair loss is spread over the scalp and can be seen through.
  • Male pattern baldness: It is caused due to genetics and testosterone levels. A receding hairline thinning around the crown with eventual bald spots is observed in this hair loss pattern.
  • Female pattern baldness: It is caused due to genetics, age and testosterone levels. Hair thins mainly on the top and crown of the scalp. It usually starts with a widening through the centre hair part.
