Hair loss can be extremely distressing for both men and women and there can be many causes ranging from temporary to permanent hair loss. In general, most hair loss is not associated with systemic or internal disease, nor is poor diet a frequent factor.
One useful way to classify hair loss is by whether the loss is localised and patchy or whether it affects large areas or the whole scalp. Some conditions produce small areas of hair loss, while others affect large areas of the scalp. Common causes of patchy hair loss are.
- Alopecia areata (patches of baldness that usually grow back);
- Traction alopecia (thinning from tight braids or ponytails);
- Trichotillomania (the habit of twisting or pulling hair out);
- Tinea capitis (fungal infection).
Some common causes of generalized (diffuse) hair loss are
- Telogen effluvium (rapid shedding after childbirth, fever, or sudden weight loss);
- Androgenetic hair loss ("male-pattern baldness," "female-pattern baldness")..
Good nutritional health plays an important role in healthy hair as well as optimal hormonal levels. The Hormonal and Nutritional Health Programme can evaluate levels of hormones through simple saliva tests. The results from these tests can allow us to formulate a Bio identical hormonal supplementation and nutritional programme to alleviate a number of symptoms.
