Hair loss often begins prior to middle age and a full 80 percent of men experience it sometime during their lifetime. Some types are temporary, some are permanent. There are multiple factors that determine hair loss. It’s essential that the exact cause be identified before taking any action and only an expert is able to make that diagnosis.
A family history of hair loss increases the potential that some type of hair loss will occur. There’s nothing that you can do about your genetics, but a hair transplant is one option.
Hormone levels do fluctuate at different times of your life. They also begin to decrease as you age and can cause hair loss.
Thyroid problems, immune system conditions, and diseases can result in hair loss. Ringworm is a fungal infection that can affect the scalp. It’s the same fungi that causes athlete’s foot.
Medications & Treatments
Prescription medications for a variety of medical conditions can contribute to hair loss. The most common are those for high blood pressure, arthritis, gout, cancer, and depression. Overuse of some over-the-counter dietary supplements can also lead to hair loss, including vitamins A and E, along with selenium. Radiation treatments for cancer are infamous for their ability to affect hair loss and growth.
Hairstyles & Treatments
Hair treatments can make you look and feel great, but receiving those treatments too often can damage hair and result in hair loss. If you have longer hair, beware of wearing tight styles, which cause breakage and loss.
People are living in highly stressful times and it has an effect on the physical body as well as the mental health aspect. High and extended levels of stress have been proven to cause a thinning throughout the scalp. Emotional shocks can have the same effect and can persist for several months after the event.
