Why does my Hair Fall Out

Why does my Hair Fall Out
  • Dec 20, 2020

We have seen hair grow everywhere on the human skin except on foot, palms, belly buttons but they’re so fine hair that would be virtually invisible. It is basically made up of a protein called keratin that is produced in hair follicles in the outer layer of skin. In our scalp and body skin, there are hair follicles that produce hair cells. Our hair grew because old hair cells are pushed out by new hair cells. So, hair is formed by a line of dead cells. An average adult scalp head is about 100,000 to 150,000 hairs. 90% of the hair is growing on the scalp. The follicle cells have their own life cycle that can be generated by age, diseases, and a wide variety of other factors. Dr. A's Hair Transplant Clinic in Gurgaon will ensure you that your hair growth is properly cared for and guaranteed natural results with no pain.

Different types of Hair Loss:-

Involutional alopecia: Hair gradually thins in age and more hair follicle cells go into the resting phase. All remaining hair becomes shorter and fewer in number. 

Androgenic alopecia:  Men begin suffering from this condition at their early 20's. Women with this condition lose hair loss at the 40’s age or later. Women usually experienced a general thinning over the entire scalp. 

Alopecia areata This Starts suddenly. It Causes patchy hair loss. These types are generally found in children or young adults. This condition may result in complete baldness approx. 90% of the people suffering from this condition. The Hair returns within a few years.

Alopecia Universalis: In this Condition, All body hair fall out including eyebrows, eyelashes, hands hair, and so on.

Trichotillomania: This is commonly found in children which are psychologically disordered where a person pulls out one’s own hair. 

Telogen Effluvium: It is a transient thinning of hair over the scalp that occurs due to hair growth cycle changes. At the same time, a considerable number of hairs reach the resting process causing hair shedding and subsequent thinning.

Scarring alopecias: This results in irreversible hair loss. Skin conditions that are inflammatory (cellulitis, folliculitis, acne) and other skin disorders (such as certain types of lupus and lichen planus) frequently contribute to scars that destroy the hair's ability to recover. Hot combs and hair that is too tightly woven and pulled may also cause permanent loss of hair.
