Now a day, the main reason of psychological distress among adults & especially women is hair loss known as alopecia or baldness. Hair loss can be sudden or gradual, temporary or permanent or it can affect your scalp only or entire body. It can be hereditary or due to age changes, hormonal changes, infections, hypothyroidism, malnutrition, pregnancy, stress, trauma, significant weight loss, result of certain medications or different hair products & treatments. It affects more men as compared to women. Some people do not bother hair reduction while others are always found covering their heads with scarfs, caps and different hair styles that create volume.
Signs and symptoms of hair loss include gradual thinning on the top of head, circular or patchy bald spots, sudden loosening of hair, full body hair loss or patches of scaling that spread over the scalp. Common types of hair loss are male-pattern hair loss, female-pattern hair loss, alopecia areata or the thinning of hair known as telogen effluvium (more common in pregnancy). Male-pattern hair loss is commonly related to hormones or genetics; however, the reason of female-pattern loss is unclear. The hair line is often recedes back in males while it is preserved in females with broadening of forehead.
Certain precautionary measures, if taken, can help in decreasing hair fall. The precautions include avoiding tight hairstyles, braids, rubbing wet hair, harsh treatments, supplements, smoking, excessive sunlight exposure and use of a wide tooth comb. Treatment strategies differ with different scenario and condition of patient; however, use of minoxidil spray is common followed by hair transplant surgeries.
