What Causes Hair loss & Suggested Treatments of Hair loss

Have you ever casually run your hands through your hair only to be met with a bunch of fallen hair strands? You must be thinking, “well yes, that’s already happened to me for the fifth time today!” If this is you, you’re not alone! Hair loss is a common concern for many people with hair fall problems and it can be an emotionally taxing experience.

In this blog, our experts have elaborated on what hair loss is, what are the causes and symptoms of hair loss and the various treatments which can help restore your hair and regain your confidence.

What is Hair Loss?

If you’re confused about “what is hair loss”, let us help you. It is a condition that occurs when you experience an excessive amount of hair fall which starts becoming visible on your scalp. This can be treated if the problem is addressed soon enough.

What Causes  Hair Loss?

There are multiple causes of hair loss and identifying what causes hair loss is the key to determining whether your hair can be restored or not. Here are some of the main causes of hair loss:

  • Genetics:

With hairless skin in the bikini area, a Brazilian wax can help you feel more assured about your body. Aesthetically pleasing skin is one of the key factors that help boost confidence for many women and men.

  • Hormonal Changes:

Brazilian waxing removes hair from the roots of the skin. Hence, new hair growth will take weeks. This is also why a full Brazilian is an ideal choice over other hair removal methods like shaving or epilators.

  • Medical conditions:

Removing hair from the bikini region can make it easier to maintain good hygiene in the pubic area. Brazilian wax helps avoid any risks of skin irritation or infection caused by bacteria.

Top 5 Symptoms of Hair Loss

It’s not always easy to spot the symptoms of hair loss since it’s a gradual process, so here are some of the most common symptoms you should look out for.

1.Thinning hair:

This is the most common symptom of hair loss. You may notice that your hair is getting thinner and less voluminous.

2. Receding hairline:

This is a common symptom in men, and it can be a sign of male pattern baldness.

3. Widening partition:

Similar to a receding hairline, a widening partition can signify hair loss which is more common among women.

4. Bald spots:

This is a symptom where people lose hair in random patches or spots on their heads. 

5. Excessive shedding:

 If you’re losing more hair than usual while combing or brushing your hair, this can be a symptom of hair loss.

1. PRP Hair Regrowth Treatment

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a medical procedure in which blood is collected, processed, and then injected into the scalp to cure hair loss. Your doctor will extract the plasma from a small amount of your blood using a centrifuge. This plasma is injected into the parts of your head where new hair needs to develop. This procedure only takes a few minutes and is safe because it uses your blood to regenerate hair.

2. GFC Hair Loss Treatment 

Growth Factor Concentrate, also known as GFC, is a highly effective hair loss treatment that employs growth factors produced in your blood. The growth factors are introduced to the hair root during the GFC hair loss treatment by superficially injecting them into the scalp. The GFC therapy encourages thicker and faster-growing hair follicles while also lowering hair loss.

3. QR678 Hair Growth Treatment  

QR678 stands for “Quick Response to a Disease which Previously Had No Answer.” A non-surgical hair regrowth technique which encourages hair growth while minimising hair loss. It is a growth factor formulation that is administered via mesotherapy injections into the scalp. By signalling the cells to enter the anagen phase, QR678 encourages the regeneration of dead hair follicles.

4. Hair Spa for Maintenance

Regular hair spas are essential for maintaining the health of your hair and preventing hair loss problems. These rejuvenating treatments provide a deep conditioning and nourishing experience for your scalp and strands. Hair spas help to strengthen hair follicles, improve blood circulation to the scalp, and combat issues like dandruff and excessive dryness. Hair spa also promotes relaxation, reducing stress levels, which can contribute to massive hair loss. By investing in hair spas, you not only pamper yourself but also ensure that your hair remains strong, shiny, and less prone to damage, ultimately safeguarding against the often distressing issue of hair loss.

When to See the Doctor?

If you’re experiencing noticeable and persistent hair loss, it’s advisable to schedule an appointment with a healthcare professional or dermatologist. While it’s normal to shed some hair daily, significant hair thinning or bald patches, especially if accompanied by other symptoms like itching, redness, or changes in your scalp’s texture, may be indicative of an underlying medical condition. 

The Takeaway

In conclusion, hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, medical conditions, and certain medications. Visit your nearest Bodycraft hair clinic if you begin to notice any symptoms of hair loss so you can find the proper treatment for hair loss.
