Panic! I might be Going Bald
Going bald is one of the worse things that can happen to do mine's appearance. Baldness is more common in men rather than females. While losing 100 two 150 strands a day is normal, but losing more than that means there might be a problem, and it is time to visit a dermatologist.
As per common perception, we think it can happen to men only when they start to age, but that is not the only reason. There can be many reasons for men going bald no matter the gender, no matter what the age.
When thinking about hair loss, the top two things that come to mind are hormonal hair loss or pattern hair loss as a person ages. It can be after menopause for women, but in men, it can start as early as when they are in their twenties.
There are many other reasons for hair loss. Determining the hair loss cause can tell whether the hair loss is reversible by seeing which part of the Scalp is affected. A dermatologist can diagnose the type of hair loss with an exam or, in rare cases, a biopsy for clarification.
Some reasons why a young person can experience hair loss are,
- Hormonal changes
- Vegan diets
- Low protein intake
- Deficiencies (such as Zinc, Vitamin D)
- Autoimmune diseases
- Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (In females)
- Too many treatments and usage of hairstyling products
- Eating disorders
- Trichotillomania ( A condition where a person pulls their hair out)
Hair loss can make its appearance in many different ways. If one can notice early symptoms, it can help in stopping or diagnosing the reason. Hair loss can happen on only the Scalp or the whole body, depending on its condition. Symptoms and signs of going bald can include
- Slow hair thinning on Scalp, this is the most common type affecting almost everyone. Men start to have a receding hairline, and women begin to have broader hair parts.
- Bald spots are round patches in the Scalp, eyebrows, or anywhere in the body from where hair starts to fall out. In some cases, the marks can be itchy or painful before hair starts falling out.
- Loosening hair in this hair starts to reduce and begins falling out due to stress or shock. Hair can or may come out in handfuls in this condition even if given a gentle tug or combing the hair or even showering. This condition causes all thinning of hair, but it is usually temporary.
- Hair loss all over the body; this usually happens when a person is going through chemotherapy or some other medical treatments resulting in hair loss all over the body. The hair naturally grows back after the treatments are finished.
- Ringworm, it is a disease that causes scaling patches on the Scalp. It may follow broken hair, redness, swelling, or oozing.
After the reasons and the symptoms of you going bald, let's talk about prevention. Whether the hair loss can be stopped or not is depended on what the diagnosis is. In certain conditions, the hair loss can be reversible and can regrow, not all of the hair but to some extent.
If the hair loss is happening due to an underlying medical condition going untreated, the hair loss will stop when the condition is treated.
In some cases, a person goes through a shock or a traumatic period in life, or gets I'll the hair loss is temporary and gets reversed by itself without any treatment or diagnosis.
But there are some cases when the hair loss is irreversible, the hair follicles get closed off, and hair cannot regrow from there again. The goal is to preserve the remaining hair and stop it from being further scarred.
People ask about the effects of blow-drying, daily washing, and wearing hats when one is noticing their hair thinning. Well, these should not worsen the condition of the hair loss, but still, a person should steer clear of harsh products, excess heat, and too tight hairstyles.
There are some things one can do to prevent some hair loss,
- Be Gentle, use a wide-tooth comb to work out the knots, use a detangler, avoid harsh brushing and tugging at hairs when hairstyling, don’t brush wet hair, avoid using straighteners, hot rollers, hot oil treatments, don’t make hairstyles that use rubber bands, braids, and barrettes.
- Before taking any supplements or medication, ask your doctor if it can cause hair fall or not.
- Try to protect your hair from sunlight, UV rays, and smoke pollution.
- Try to stop smoking, and studies show a relationship between baldness in men and smoking.
- If undergoing chemotherapy, ask the doctor for a cooling cap. This can reduce the risk of hair fall during chemotherapy.
- Improving your lifestyle is directly proportional to enhancing your hair's health. Doing small amends into your daily routine and lifestyle can do wonders for you.
