Common Types of Hair Loss
Some hair loss is normal – losing up to 150 hairs daily is not out of the ordinary. Each of the individual hairs on your head are constantly either growing (for up to seven years in the “anagen” phase), getting ready to be shed, or being shed. In a person without hair loss issues, a new hair is already growing in the place of a recently shed hair.
Not sure if you are experiencing hair loss? Here are some of the most common types of hair loss patterns and insight on how they may appear on you:
When this genetically based hair loss occurs in women, the pattern of the loss is much different than when the condition is seen in men. For example, female pattern baldness causes hair thinning (rather than loss) at the top and crown of the head. It may be particularly noticeable where the hair is parted.
It is estimated that 30 million women in the U.S. suffer from female pattern baldness.
Male pattern baldness is a hereditary condition that usually begins with a receding hairline along the front and sides of the head. It results in a bald spot at the top and crown of the head, leaving hair along the sides and back of the scalp.
This is the most common type of hair loss. An estimated 50 million men in the U.S. experience this type of hair loss.
If you experience sudden hair loss in round patches, it may be alopecia areata. It occurs as the result of the immune system attacking hair follicles. Stress is thought to trigger this type of hair loss.
This is a reversible condition in which a significant shock or trauma has caused hair in the growing phase to be pushed prematurely into the “getting-ready-to-be-shed” stage. Then, within a few months, those hairs all fall out. A large portion of your hair may be affected, but usually not the entire head. The good news is that this type of hair loss is only temporary and hair regrowth begins again when the stress or trauma that caused it is no longer present.
Another type of temporary hair loss is called anagen effluvium, which is caused by exposure to certain toxins, most commonly with cancer treatments like chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
Stop worrying about losing your hair, and do something about it! The medical and aesthetic professionals at Glamoi Med Spa are well-equipped to offer you nonsurgical methods to combat your hair loss, such as hair restoration using platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
