Male Pattern Baldness

Androgenetic alopecia that occurs in men is what we identify as "male pattern baldness." Unfortunately, 98% of men are affected by this type of hair loss is caused primarily by DHT, the breakdown of testosterone, that occurs as males age. As a result, the process of miniaturization follows. Regrettably, the affected follicles can no longer grow hair as the process is irreversible.

Non Pattern Hair Loss

Reasons for hair loss in men and women may occur due to:

  • Compulsive Hair Pulling
    This type of hair loss can appear to be in patches, as those affected with the disorder share a tendency to pull hair in targeted areas. It is not advisable to have FUE Hair Transplants without resolving the underlying psychological issues.
  • Alopecia Areata
    An autoimmune disorder that attacks the hair follicles and affects areas of hair, leaving bald patches. A medical diagnosis is required before FUE can proceed.
  • Triangular Alopecia
    This condition can occur as early as childhood and concerns the temporal area of the patient. Although the cause is scientifically unknown, treatment is possible with medical and surgical procedures.
  • Scarring Alopecia
    It is common to see this form of hair loss usually after an accident, where an area of the scalp has scarred. Consequently, new hair growth is not possible due to the reduced supply of blood. Moreover, it is also common in those who have frequently weaved hair or braided tightly, as this too can contribute to hair loss.
  • Loose-anagen syndrome
    Arises when the follicle sits loosely on the scalp and can be easily dislodged/removed by combing or pulling. Nevertheless, it is possible to see improvements with age.
  • Diet & Stress
    There are many ways that our diet can affect the health of our hair - ensure to enrich yours with Vitamin B to encourage growth. However, be cautious of your intake even if you feel the supplement is only beneficial, as too much Vitamin A can lead to hair loss.

Telogen Effluvium

Physical & Emotional Stress (death of a family member, surgery, illness, trauma, an accident, etc.) can also contribute to hair loss. The human body has a fascinating mechanism to prevent the unrequired growth of hair or any other bodily function that doesn't aid survival. In most cases, there is a 3-month delay in suffering hair loss from the moment of trauma. There may be a further 3-6 month delay before the hair growth returns to normal, as this is the general duration period of a healthy hair follicle's cycle.

Underlying health issues such as a low blood count, anaemia or abnormal thyroid function, can also contribute to hair loss. All of which, through taking a blood test, can be checked by a health professional. Once the levels of telogen effluvium have returned to normal, hair growth should also follow.
