Hair Loss Prevention

I AM A 31 YEARS OLD FEMALE. I HAVE BEEN TO DERMATOLOGISTS MANY TIMES, USING TREATMENTS HAIR LOSS STOPS BUT AFTER A FEW MONTHS IT COMES AGAIN. I HAVE USED SEVERAL PRODUCTS, SHAMPOOS, LOTIONS, PILLS ETC. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT CAN DO TO PREVENT HAIR LOSS, ABOUT SHAMPOOS ETC, & ANY OTHER USEFUL INFO

Hair loss can be caused by any number of conditions. In fact, losing around 100 hairs a day is a natural part of hair growth cycle, but at some point, some excessive hair loss could happen. There is a strong chance that women with hair loss have a deficiency of some kind that may be helped through nutrition or supplements. In some cases these women can be helped before menopause through other means. Such things as low iron and hormones may be causing their hair loss. You should check with your doctor for anemia, excessive male hormones, thyroid function, rheumatoid diseases, and other medical problems. Hair loss could be caused by medication and stress too. In most cases, it is a temporary situation. Fortunately, medications and hair care products can be used to manage hair loss. We suggest you get the test results from your preferred doctor as a starting point.

Hair Loss Cause

Hi, I am 20 years old and am a very healthy, sporty person. About 2 years ago I noticed my hair was thinning out and on the pillow in the morning for example. I could see hairs which were of a noticeable amount. Recently, the problem has become worse, styling my hair, showering, sleeping, and combing my hands through my hair, all result in hairs falling on the floor or being left in my hand. I have been to the doctor about this problem, had blood tests for thyroid problems and all came back negative (sadly I wanted it to be positive so there was something to cure). I am really worried. What can I do? Surely there is medication or something to restart or help with hair growth, as my hair is gradually becoming thinner and thinner, in the shower, when I look in the mirror, it really scares me as the wet hair shows how thin areas are.

Hair loss can be caused by any number of conditions. If you already had a blood test that came back negative, it could be male pattern baldness. Even when it is a permanent situation, exist medications and hair care products that could be use to slow the hair loss process. It could be advised to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist or hair specialist for an evaluation. We recommend Minoxidil 5% for male pattern baldness because it stimulates the anagen phase and gives strength and thickness to your hairs and Hair Cycle care products. You could consider using Rogaine Foam 5% that does not contain alcohol. It does evaporate right away without the grease effects. You can use it twice per day.

Hair Loss After Pregnancy

I am having excessive hair loss post partum. Before pregnancy I used to have hair loss but not this much. Need help. I also have lots of Gray hair

Postpartum hair loss is a normal and temporary situation and there is no need to panic. In fact, most women will return to their usual hair growth cycle between 6 and 12 months after birth. During pregnancy, increased levels of estrogen prolong the growing stage. There are fewer hairs in the resting stage and fewer falling out each day, so you have thicker, more luxuriant tresses. After giving birth, the estrogen levels take a tumble and a lot more hair follicles enter the resting stage. It is very common to experience excessive hair loss around three months after delivery. Within six to twelve months after delivery is when most women find that their hair has once again reached a normal state.

My Hair Is Getting Thiner!

I used to have thick hair but over the past ten years it has thinned out. I can no longer wear a pony tail without scalp showing. Even if I just pull my hair back to the base of my neck you can see my scalp. I haven't taken any medications beyond the birth control that I am currently on. Is there any way to treat this or make my hair grow?

Hair loss can be caused by any number of conditions.There may be a hormonal imbalance, possibly from the birth control pills. A medical workup is necessary to rule out high androgen levels, or telogen effluvium, among other things. This would be the first step.

Your ponytail may also be the problem. A condition known as traction alopecia occurs when tight ponytails cause tension on the hair and the scalp. The first task is to release the tension. You always can adopt a new hair style. The traction alopecia may not be permanent. An effective treatment of traction alopecia is to simply avoid hair styling that puts excessive strain on the hair roots. Even after avoiding the causes of the traction alopecia it may take a period of several months for the hair to recover from this severe hair pulling disorder. If traction alopecia continues for a long time and the same hair is repeatedly pulled out, then the hair follicles in the skin can become so damaged that they stop growing hair permanently. Signs to watch out for include an itchy red scalp, tension headaches, hair breakage around the scalp, and random bald patches.

A sudden bald spot

Hi, I am 25 years old. Well one day I woke up and I had a silver dollar sized bald spot on the side of my head. I am scared that I might lose more of my hair. Might someone know what's going on or what I can do to try save the rest of my hair?

Very possibly this is Alopecia Areata; it very often starts this way. There is not necessarily continued loss, but there can be. See a dermatologist. Quite often these conditions respond to simple injection of medication into the hairless spot.

While there is neither a cure for alopecia Areata nor drugs approved for its treatment, some people find that medications approved for other purposes can help hair grow back, at least temporarily. Keep in mind that while these treatments may promote hair growth, none of them prevent new patches or actually cure the underlying disease.

24 years old and loosing my hair

My age is 24. I am loosing hair around the ring part in the head. It is becoming like a bold head around the ring part. I was surprised that I took
care of hair since my childhood, but I am loosing hair. Lossed hair is not getting back. Should I get that loosed hair back? or Is there any solution to get back. I loosed most of the hair when I got fever which was happened nearly 6 months back, but untill now I didn't get it back. Now also I am loosing hair. My hair gets on pillow when I wake up.

You may have pattern balding, in which case you need to see a hair specialist and possibly be on medications. A consult for possible hair transplant is also an option. However, the history of fever is interesting. You may very possibly have experienced telogen effluvium (shedding) which can occur after fever or other illness. If so, the hair often returns after a number on months, but it will not all return at once. There may be other illness which contributes to continued hair loss. A scalp biopsy may possibly be indicated.A lot of possible explanations. Best bet is a dermatologist. They will know the best tests to order including possible scalp biopsy. Telogen effluvium is possible with stress, where many of the hairs go into the resting stage at once.

Hair loss from the root

My hair falls out at the root- during the day. I can run my fingers threw my hair and it comes out at the root. After a shower I comb it and it comes out.

We all have hairs falling out "by the root" every day; about 100 to 200 on the average. They have gone into the telogen, or resting stage, and the body sheds them when grooming, combing, shampooing, etc. Only if the numbers are significantly higher than this is there a potential problem; a visit to a hair specialist will be required.

The hair growth cycle consists of three phases—anagen, the active growth phase; catagen, the transition phase; and telogen, the resting or dormant phase. When hair spends more time in the telogen phase and less in the anagen phase, the result is hair loss. Ideally used as part of an overall therapeutic program, Hair Cycle products contain several ingredients that stimulate the anagen phase to thicken the hair shaft, increase the number of growing hairs, and keep hair in the active phase for the fullest cosmetic effect.

We recommend you a well balanced diet or vitamins that are essential not only to prevent hair loss, but also to promote healthy hair. Hair Cycle products are designed and formulated to nourish hair and allow the hair optimum health. Hair cycle are designed for all types of hair because they are free of harsh chemicals, and use safe natural ingredients that thoroughly cleanse the hair without unnecessary lathering. Natural ingredients combine to prevent premature hair loss and increase hair growth by supplying hair follicles with essential nutrients.

How to stop my hair loss?

How to stop my hair lose?

Depends on what the cause is. We recommend you to consult with hair specialist to find out the cause! Hair loss is a life long process and we should integrate your treatment over the time. Beside the surgery, I will encourage you to explore the others means to fight hair loss. Medications such as Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (Minoxidil lotion 5 %) are among the most efficient in the field; you can also use hair cycle products, vitamins, etc... This will help you to stabilize your hair loss and get a maximum benefit for your surgery and for a long time.

I will encourage you to add Rogaine application to your Propecia or hair cycle products because they stimulate the anagen phase while propecia protects the hairs to fall. They have synergic effects.

Hair loss is a progressive situation that last all life long. Hair transplant surgery is a good way to replace hairs but it doesn't assure you about the fall of your existing. For that reason, you need to take medication such as Propecia and Rogaine to prevent further loss. Also Haircycle product line promotes your hair grow by fighting the DHT(hormone responsible for hair loss) and by stimulating the anagen phase (the growing phase of your hairs).

These medications will help to slow down the process. The benefit and the full effect happen 1 year later and you will have to take it all life long to keep the results.

We also recommend you a well balanced diet or vitamins that are essential not only to prevent hair loss, but also to promote healthy hair. HairCycle products are designed and formulated to nourish hair and allow the hair optimum health.

16 Years Old Hair Loss

Hi, I am a 16 year-old female. I started experiencing hair loss when I was 13-14 years old, but it wasn't serious. It only became worst when I was 15 years old. I decided to see the doctor and he prescribed me 2% minoxidil. He said my hairloss was heriditary, because my father also suffered male-pattern hairloss. (My hairloss was mostly the scalp area.) However, there was a period of time, when I was 12, I used to tie my hair tightly. Also, it was the time I caught the lices and my mother used to dettol to killed it. I wonder if it could also be the cause of hairloss?

It may be a combination of things. The tight hair styles may cause traction alopecia, which sometimes responds at least partially to minoxidil.

There may also be some inherited traits, but you probably need to be worked up more thoroughly by a hair specialist. A scalp biopsy may be required to give the diagnosis, as there may be something else going on.

Traction alopecia is hair loss that is caused by long term hair pulling and breakage due to very tight ponytail, hair weaves and cornrows. Depending on the stage that the hair loss caused by Traction Alopecia has reached, it is possible to grow some hair back and stop any further hair loss as long as no further tension is applied to the areas

Very often traction alopecia is not reversible because the follicle is destroyed. However, at your young age, this may not be the case. The doctor recommended seeing a hair specialist who may want to put you on 2% Minoxidil again to try to help the hair grow back. If all else fails, transplantation will be the next option. Good luck and please don't go back to the tightly pulled hairstyles!

Hair Shaft Problem

I had really thick and long hair as a child...so much that a band could never hold my hair, and would always break. Right know all the strand in my hair have become very brittle...I can tear a strand with the least bit of pressure. The strand is not smooth, but very bumpy. I need a treatment plan and I am willing to consider anything.

You may have a hair shaft problem. These are best diagnosed by a hair specialist (dermatologist) who can examine the strands under a microscope, or even take a biopsy and send it for examination. There may also be a problem with nutrition or something else affecting the hair shafts. We recommend you have it checked soon.
Hair shaft disorders may lead to brittleness and uncombable hair. In general the hair feels dry and lusterless. Hair shaft abnormalities may occur as a genetic predisposition or certain things you do to your hair such as blow-drying, over-brushing, permanents, or excessive chemical use appear to trigger the condition. Therapy of hair shaft disorders should focus to the cause.

Hair straighting, chemicals and hair loss

I am experiencing falling of hair of head in increasing rate after straighting the hair with chemicals. i need to make my hair thicker, stronger and denser again.

First of all, stop the use of chemicals on the hair. If this coincided with the hair loss, then it is obvious it has to stop. The hair may return in time. It may have been a telogen effluvium.A considerable number of different causes for telogen effluvium exist. Among the common causes are high fevers, severe infections, severe chronic illness, severe psychological stress, major surgery or illnesses, over or under active thyroid gland, crash diets with inadequate protein, and a variety of medications. Most hair loss from medications is this type and causes include retinoids, beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, antidepressants, and NSAIDS (including ibuprofen).

No treatment is needed for most cases of telogen effluvium. Remember that the hairs fall out when a new hair growing beneath it pushes it out. Thus with this type of hair loss, hair falling out is a sign of hair regrowth. As the new hair first comes up through the scalp and pushes out the dead hair a fine fringe of new hair is often evident along the forehead hairline.

The most important issue in telogen effluvium is to determine if an underlying cause for the problem is present. Blood tests may need to be done if the cause is not obvious, such as mild iron deficiency. If the telogen effluvium is caused by a medication, the medication needs to be stopped. When the cause of the hair loss is something like giving birth, a transient illness, or other self-limited problem the induced telogen effluvium is also usually self-limited and requires no treatment.

Can a swirl be removed from the hairline?

Before I grew out my hair, I had a swirl at the front of my hairline, I was wondering if there was anything that can done to prevent the swirl from being there when I cut my hair. Can you please let me know? I will get surgery if it will fix this problem?

A Hair whorl or swirls is a patch of hair growing in the opposite direction of the rest of the hair. The swirls are part of each individual's genetics. It is not anything to prevent the swirl because hair whorl is established before birth. The facts suggest that this set of traits is genetic and not environmentally influenced. Surgery would not be a good idea, because nature is always obviously the most natural.

Recent researches show a correlation between handedness and the orientation of hair whorls on the scalp, suggesting the possibility that the same system that patterns hair may also play a role in left-right asymmetry in the brain. Left handedness is genetic or at least has a genetic component, but the genetic basis is still not clear. Left handed people have a 50% chance of having a counterclockwise hair whorl and vice versa. In families with no left handedness at all, there is no counterclockwise hair whorls.

Tight Pony Tails Hair Loss-Can it Regrow?

I wore my pony tails too tight without realizing my hair was thinning because of it not growing. Can I rejuvenate or stimulate new hair growth in areas that seem bald?

In fact ponytails can cause permanent hair loss. Any hairstyle that pulls on the scalp for a long period of time can cause hair loss. The hair loss can be reversed if the hairstyle is changed in time... but prolonged wear can lead to permanent loss. Styles to be careful with include tight ponytails & braids, cornrows, buns, chignons, and twists. You should also be careful with hair extensions that are glued or sewn into the hair, as well as with hair pins that secure hats for hours at a time. Women who wear ponytails report that their hair is no longer growing, when in fact it is repeatedly broken at the same distance from the scalp due to the trauma caused by the tight rubber band. Signs to watch out for include an itchy red scalp, tension headaches, hair breakage around the scalp, and random bald patches.

If you have noticed any of these symptoms of traction alopecia, you must stop wearing the offending hairstyle immediately. You should try Minoxidil (Rogaine) first for at least 6 months, and then see doctor about possible hair transplant.

Isolated Hair Loss Spot

I have this bald spot that grows then falls out I had a ringworm when I was a child and where the ringworm was that's where the bald spot is. I've tried almost every hair growing product and nothing. Some of them worked and my hair still fell out like a few months after it grew. Now there's a spot in the back of my head that does the same thing (more like my hair line in the back).I just don't know what to do anymore my hair has been short ever since the ringworm. I want it to grow. I don't want anymore weaves or hair extensions so if you can help I'd appreciate it

It May not be ringworm, may possibly be something like alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is the name for a condition in which round patches of hair loss appear suddenly. The hair-growing tissue is attacked by the patient's own immune cells for unknown reasons.

There are three stages: first, there is sudden hair loss, then the patches of hair loss enlarge, and last, new hair grows back. This process takes months; sometimes more than a year, but rarely does the hair never grow back. There is every chance that your hair will re-grow, but it may also fall out again. No one can predict when it might re-grow or fall out.

The course of the disease varies from person to person. Some people lose just a few patches of hair, then the hair re-grows, and the condition never recurs. Other people continue to lose and re-grow hair for many years. You may need scalp biopsy performed by competent hair replacement doctor.

Gray Hair- Restoring the natural color

I'm 52 years old and my hair is turning grey. Is there any way of restoring my natural color besides hair coloring?

Whatever the stage of your life, going gray is an inevitable part of getting older. There are many causes for gray hair such as genes, age and medical conditions…factors completely beyond your control. The most common reason is age. As we age the cells that generate the color for our hair called Melanocytes degenerates and isn't able to feed the hair follicles as well as it use to. This will result in the pigment in the hair follicle to lose its color properties. The hair will end up losing all its color and become transparent.
The science behind our hair going gray is down to the cells in our hair follicles called Melanocytes. These little cells generate the pigment in our hair and they are usually healthy and generous in our youth. As we get older these Melanocytes start generating less pigment to the hair follicle giving the hair strand a slightly transparent appearance.
There are medical conditions that can cause our hair to go gray as well. These can be due to a B12 deficiency or a thyroid condition. In this case, we can help these cells from breaking down by following a healthy diet. Being deficient in B12 can also be a reason for your Gray hair. To prevent this you need to ensure you take regular dosages of B12 as well as folic acid and biotin. Some of us may be lucky enough to keep our natural hair color for a lot longer and will only end up with gray hair in our 50's and 60's. Whatever the stage of your life, going gray is an inevitable part of getting older.
Your hair will go gray and will increase in appearance over the next few years. Gray hair, in reality, is not a bad thing. It is part of a normal process.

Dandruff and Hair Loss

for the past 8 years i am having dandruff. i am losing my hairs slowly. more than half gone. i feel shy to go out. my friends teasing. Will new hair grow for me ? please give me a solution...

Sounds like two issues.

Dandruff:

Although regular washing of the hair may wash away the flakes and limit the signs of dandruff, it does not treat the cause. Nizoral anti-dandruff shampoo works by restoring the natural balance of the yeast on the scalp, which is the main cause of the dry, flaky, red, itchy symptoms of dandruff and prevents them coming back. Not all dandruff treatments work this way, which means they are less likely to be as effective

We suggest that you use a shampoo such as Nizoral anti-dandruff shampoo for moderate to severe dandruff. Nizoral anti-dandruff shampoo should be used twice weekly (every 3 or 4 days) for the first 2-4 weeks to clear dandruff. Then it only has to be used once every 1-2 weeks to prevent dandruff coming back. Apply enough shampoo to wash your scalp and hair. Gently massage the entire scalp, leaving the shampoo on for about 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly, then dry your hair as you normally do.
