Revitalising Your Scalp: Unveiling the Causes of Hair Loss

If you're wondering, "Why am I losing hair?", it's important to note that many others face hair loss and thinning too. In fact, half of the world’s population will confront hair loss during their lifetime. Discover how your stylist can help regenerate and revitalise your scalp.

There are many factors which can bring on hair loss, here are just a few.

Revitalising Your Scalp: Unveiling the Causes of Hair Loss

Genetic Factors

Often, when discussing genetic hair loss, we refer to male or female pattern baldness, also known as Androgenetic Alopecia. For women, this manifests as subtle thinning around their hair parting and hairline. Men, on the other hand, might observe hair loss starting at the crown or temples.

It's a misconception that this hair loss type originates from just one parent. The reality is, it can come from either or both. While most notice genetic hair loss signs around their 40s or 50s, some face it as early as their late teens or early 20s, which can be unsettling.

Integrating products like Nioxin into your routine can help manage hair thinning.

Stress and Trauma

There's a profound link between stress and hair loss. Experiences like a new job, workplace pressure, a busy life, childbirth, or a personal loss can trigger hair loss, which might only appear 3 to 6 months after the event. Such hair loss, due to elevated hair shedding, is called telogen effluvium. If you're pondering, "Why am I losing hair?", it might be useful to consider past stressors.

Nutrition and Diet

A balanced diet is vital for hair health since the scalp, enriched with vitamins and nutrients from our food, supports hair growth. If your diet lacks essential nutrients like zinc, iron, biotin, or vitamin D, hair supplements can be beneficial. Always discuss with a doctor before beginning any new supplement, especially if you have underlying health issues.

Medical Conditions or Medications

Hair loss can be triggered by various health issues, including thyroid problems, hormonal changes post-pregnancy, or during menopause, and medical conditions like alopecia areata. Medications for conditions like blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and even certain hormone therapies can also induce hair thinning. Always consult with a healthcare professional for a proper diagnosis and never alter medication without their advice. Meanwhile, a hairdresser can offer cosmetic solutions for hair thinning, and mental health professionals can help address the psychological impacts.

Environmental Factors

Emerging studies suggest our environment influences hair health. Apart from hairstyling, external factors like air pollutants and water minerals can degrade hair quality and contribute to thinning. Overexposure to the sun and frequent use of hair dyes, heat, and chemical straighteners can weaken hair, adding to the thinning issue.
