“Losing my hair has been the most disturbing event of my life.”

“Losing my hair has made me depressed.”

“I feel undesirable as a result of my hair loss.”

These are some of the statements we hear every day from the patients regarding a condition that affects approximately 60 percent of women and 85 percent of men at some time in their lives: Hair Loss. However, hair loss can have a devastating effect on people’s lives. It can be the last thing they think about when they go to bed and the first thing they think about when they wake up. It can cause people to change their normal daily routines (“I am not going out today because it’s too windy and people will see my scalp”), or it can take many hours out of their day (“I don’t go out until I’m satisfied with the way my hair looks)”.

If you are losing excessive amounts of hair, how can you find out why it’s falling out? How do you treat your hair loss and monitor that the treatment is working? This blog will answer all your questions regarding hair loss and how you can cope with this condition.

Are you really losing hair?

If you see more hair falling out, the first thing that you need to do is ascertain whether you are actually losing your hair or just experiencing normal shedding. Because not all people who see hair fall (the amount that comes out in the wash or the comb) are actually experiencing hair thinning. Sometimes seeing more hair fall is normal; it could be seasonal occurrence or just your regular hair cycle.

The lifecycle of hair is divided into three stages – anagen, catagen, and telogen. Each hair follicle produces a new hair, which then grows in successive cycle before falling out (an average life cycle of hair is 2 to 7 years).

What is causing your hair to fall out or to thin?

It is important for you to know the reason for which you’re losing your pretty mane! There are as many causes of hair loss as there are types. The causes can be hereditary, dietetic shortfall, hormonal imbalance, stress, or any underlying illness (like PCOS or thyroid disorder). Hair loss can also be triggered by dandruff, certain cosmetics, and skin disorders such as psoriasis, allergic dermatitis, or eczema of the scalp. Hence, trying to discover cause of hair loss is often like a detective work. You will need to take doctors’ help to find out the reason. The doctor will thoroughly diagnose your condition based on the appearance and pattern of your hair loss, along with a detailed medical history, your lifestyle, and family health history.
