Hair Loss Causes and Hair Loss Treatments
Hair loss is something that many of us have to deal with at some point in our lives and it’s not usually something to be worried about. It can be a cause of a medical condition but it’s usually not anything serious. It’s still upsetting though, of course. Hair loss is something that can happen to both men and women and to people of all ages.
Normal everyday hair loss is around 50-100 strands of hair each day. We lose these without even noticing.
Some kinds of hair loss is permanent and often hereditary like pattern baldness which affects both men and women.
Other types of hair loss can be temporary and cause by your lifestyle or medical conditions and treatments.
The causes of temporary hair loss can be things like an illness, cancer treatment, weight loss, stress or iron deficiency. If you’re worried at all or suspect something serious is wrong, always consult your doctor who should be able to tell you what’s causing the hair loss and help you find a suitable treatment.
Not all hair loss requires treatment. If it’s temporary, it should grow back and sometimes the hair loss is just a sign of getting older.
There are different medicines that you can try if your hair loss is upsetting you, like Dutasteride that you can get from your Online Pharmacy. Medicines and treatments like these are not usually available on the NHS.
You can also try wearing a wig if your hair loss is extreme. Choose between synthetic or real-hair wigs which both come with their own pros and cons. Some are available on the NHS, depending on your condition.
If your hair loss is even, more like thinning of the hair, then you might want to start with trying a new hair style. Your hair dresser will be able to tell you what would work well for you to add volume back.
Other treatments include steroid injections or creams, hair transplants, light treatment and more. There are lots of choices out there for you if you’re suffering from hair loss and want to find a treatment that can help you feel better.
