Hair is attacked from all sides by external elements, which can damage it permanently: overly aggressive brushing, too much washing, excessive heat from drying, prolonged sun exposure, pollution, etc.
Hair loss: what is it?
While it is normal to lose around 45 to 60 hairs a day, certain well-known phenomena can cause excessive loss, though fortunately it is normally only temporary.
Losing more than 100 hairs a day for a duration of at least two months is considered pathological hair loss and the sufferer should consult a specialist.
What are the causes of hair loss?
Temporary hair loss is different to androgenetic alopecia, which is permanent.
Our hair is like a plant; it follows the rhythm of the seasons. Hair loss in autumn and winter is related to the effects of summer, in which the sun and heat cause the human body to secrete hormones to stimulate hair growth and the retention of hair that would otherwise fall out. In winter, when there is less sun and the weather is colder, this hormone stimulation is absent. As a result, your hair falls out like the autumn leaves.
Hormonal changes for women
Hair is very sensitive to hormonal changes during pregnancy or after childbirth. During pregnancy, hair is artificially retained in the hair bulb, so there are more hairs in the telogen phase with the birth and then more of them fall out.
Hair loss can also be caused by a disruption of the thyroid gland or a slowdown in the functioning of the pituitary gland. In this case, a hormone test should be carried out and these imbalances corrected via an appropriate treatment prescribed by a doctor.
An emotional shock
An abrupt emotional shock can cause sudden, excessive hair loss up to 4 months after the shock.
Chemotherapy or taking certain medications
Certain chemotherapy treatments or medicines can cause temporary alopecia. Hair starts growing back normally around one month after the end of the treatment.
An unbalanced diet can lead to vitamin deficiencies that directly causes hair loss.
Alopecia is an inflammatory disease that causes hair loss, which is often reversible. It is characterised by one or more hair loss areas of varying sizes.
Hair loss: how can you defeat it?
Hair loss can be treated in different ways depending on its cause.
PRP injections boost the stem cells of the hair bulb while mesotherapy nourishes the scalp. Combine these two treatments for best results.
LED treatment optimises the results of these two techniques thanks to a targeted lamp that amplifies the effects of the injected products (platelet-rich plasma or active ingredients).
