Hair Loss

It is normal to shed 50-100 hairs per day. If shedding exceeds this amount and bald patches or thinning hair is noticeable, you may be experiencing hair loss. Causes for hair loss differ by individual and may include hereditary or reactionary (stress, hormones, pregnancy) triggers.  Dr. Minuk is pleased to offers clinically proven, drug-free solutions for both types of hair loss.

 

 

Sudden (temporary) hair loss
Appears suddenly and becomes visible two to three months after a specific event. The medical term is telogen effluvium (TE) and it is thought to be the second most common form of hair loss dermatologists see. Telogen effluvium happens when there is a change in the number of follicles growing hair. The anagen (growth) phase slows down and hairs abruptly enter the shedding phase before completing the growth phase, which causes excess hair shedding on the entire head. This type of hair loss is more common in women and it is not permanent. It can be reversed due to the fact that hair follicles are not irreversibly damaged or affected.

  • Stress or emotional shock
  • Medications
  • Poor or restricted diet
  • Overprocessed hair
  • Fatigue
  • Scalp tension due to excessive styling
  • Childbirth

Progressive Thinning Hair

Hereditary hair thinning usually takes up to six months to become noticeable, and it is genetically predetermined. It appears differently in women, with a widening of the part and thinning patches, and men see thinning along the hairline and on the crown of the head.

Causes

  • Vascular deficiency – Nutrients vital for healthy hair growth are not delivered to the hair folicles because of the poor blood flow.
  • Nutritional deficiency – Daily diet lacks in nutrients necessary for hair growth.
  • Inflammation of the hair bulbs
  • Hormones – DHT (male sex hormone) disrupt the hair’s growth cycle.
