Hair loss

September 22, 2007 RENU

A strand of hair is made up of extruded, compacted dead cells. Everything you put into ur body eventually comes out in ur hair, usually within 3-6mths.
At hair root, all major systems r at work, including circulatory, endocrine, central nervous system. That’s why it hurts when someone pulls hair!
Every hair follicle has 4distinct phases it cycles through on a regular basis: growth, transition, resting, returning growth. A full cycle can last from 2-5yrs per follicle. Unusual hair loss & thinning occurs when a follicle is stuck in resting phase. Bald spots occur when a large group of follicles turn off all in one place. Most of the time this happens slowly, but in some severe cases can happen all at once, causing a clump of hair to fall out.
· Stress (emotional and physical)
· Hormonal imbalance, specifically androgen sensitivity
· Genetics
· Immune system irregularities
· Thyroid disorders
· Nutritional deficiencies (especially iron or vitamin A)
· Cosmetics (allergies and harsh treatments)
· Radiation/chemotherapy
· Dental treatment
· Blood loss
· Drugs
· Disease
· Surgery
· Scarring
Hair follicles can be shocked into resting phase by so many stressors — emotional, physical or cosmetic — & just as suddenly switch back to “on” when stress is reduced. Hair appears to be amazingly adaptive, which is why so many scientists believe that a cure for hair loss is right around the corner. A majority of women with moderate hair loss may notice big improvements just by paying more attention to their stress levels & their diet.
