Hair loss or thinning hair is a physical condition that has a far-reaching impact on a person’s physical and psychological state. A full head of hair is not something we appreciate enough – it’s only once the possibility of losing it becomes a reality, that we start to realise the effect it has on our appearance and self-esteem. Wigs and extensions can help to an extent, but for those that experience hair loss and thinning it’s only a plaster on a gaping wound.
Hair loss can be the result of many internal and external factors. Alopecia androgenetica is genetically passed on and can occur in both men and women, though it’s often more visible in men. As we age, the hair in specific areas will fall out and the follicle will stop producing new hair. For women, this type of hair loss usually starts at the hair parting with the front hairline intact. In men, it’s typically first noticed either at the back of the crown and/or a thinning of the front hairline.
Alopecia diffusa is an overall or sectional thinning of the hair. The causes that lead to this type of hair loss are myriad and include factors such as chronic stress, an unhealthy diet or eating disorder, certain chronic diseases, and endocrine disorders to name a few. Hair fall is prematurely and unregulated which causes the diffused hair loss appearance. Should you start to notice your hair thinning and you’re not undergoing radiation or taking specific medication, it’s vital to make an appointment with your doctor to determine the cause.
Though alopecia medicamentosa often falls under alopecia diffusa, this type of hair loss requires a bit more attention as it’s often overlooked. Alopecia medicamentosa is reversible and doctors don’t always understand the psychological effect hair loss has on a patient. Alopecia medicamentosa is the result of specific medication prescribed by a doctor including radiation or chemotherapy which attacks the hair follicle and interrupts the growing phase, ultimately causing hair to fall out.
