    What Every Woman Needs to Know about Hair Loss [INFOGRAPHIC]

    Last updated 7 months ago

    Did you know that approximately 30 million American women experience hair loss? In fact, 40% of hair loss sufferers in this country are women. Female hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors, including heredity, hormone imbalances, autoimmune disorders, and other medical conditions. Losing one’s hair can be particularly traumatizing for a female, but rest assured you are not alone if you are experiencing hair loss. In this infographic from the female hair loss treatment experts in Washington, D.C., you’ll get a deeper look at the causes of female hair loss. You will also find treatment options including hair transplants, which have been shown to be an effective and natural-looking solution for female hair loss. However, few physicians are interested in hair loss treatments. Even fewer are comfortable treating women’s hair loss. Most women with hair loss need medical evaluation and lab work before considering surgical treatment. Please share this infographic with your friends and family.

    Understanding the Natural Cycle of Hair Growth and Loss

    Last updated 7 months ago

    Everyone loses hair, every day. On average, adults have between 150,000 and 200,000 hairs, and they shed about 100 of them daily.  In most cases, new hair grows to replace those lost hairs. For people with noticeable hair loss, however, this regrowth simply doesn’t happen. All hairs go through three life cycles, and 90% of hair is typically in a growing phase. That number is lower in people who are dealing with hair loss. Here is a look at the stages of hair growth and what causes the balance to change:

    Cycle Phases
    Each individual hair on your head is in one of three stages. Anagen is the active stage of growth. It lasts for between two and six years. People who can grow their hair very long have long anagen phases, while people who can’t seem to grow their hair past a certain point usually have shorter anagen phases. Catagen is a transitional phase that only lasts for a few weeks. After catagen comes telogen. This phase is the resting phase. It typically lasts for two or three months. At the end of that time, the hair is shed and new hair begins to grow in its place. Individual hairs go through this process at different times. Otherwise, all of your hair would shed at once.

    Cycle Disruption
    What disrupts this cycle of hair growth and loss and causes balding? Aging plays a role. It is natural for growth to slow with age. Many other conditions can trigger hair loss. Some conditions are genetic, like certain forms of alopecia. In other cases, hormones play a central role. Hypothyroidism and abnormal androgen levels can also cause hair loss. In other cases, autoimmune disease is to blame. If you’re losing hair, your doctor can pinpoint the cause and devise a treatment plan accordingly.

    An Introduction to the Different Kinds of Alopecia

    Last updated 7 months ago

    Generally, alopecia simply refers to hair loss. There are many different subsets of alopecia, but there are two main categories of the condition. These are differentiated according to the cause and pattern of the hair loss. Alopecia can cause total baldness or it can cause thin hair. Here are the facts about the two main kinds of alopecia. Note that there are sub-categories of each type, depending on the nature of the hair loss.

    Alopecia Areata
    Alopecia areata is hair loss that is caused by an autoimmune reaction. With this kind of alopecia, your immune system erroneously sees your hair follicles as foreign invaders and attacks them. In some cases, hair simply becomes thin. In other cases, clumps of hair fall out, leaving bald spots. It is also possible for the ends of hairs to break off, leaving short tufts. This kind of alopecia can cause hair loss all over the body. Often, hair grows back after alopecia areata, but for some patients, as hair regrows in one place, it starts falling out in another. About 10% of patients don’t have any hair regrowth at all. This kind of alopecia is most common in people under 20, but it can affect anyone. Often, people who have experienced one episode of alopecia areata will experience more periods of hair loss.

    Androgenic Alopecia
    In male patients, this kind of alopecia is also called male pattern baldness. In women, it is called female diffuse hair loss. In both instances, hair becomes extremely thin, sometimes to the point of complete baldness. Men usually lose hair at the hairline and on the top of their heads, while women experience allover shedding. This kind of alopecia is hereditary.
