Everyone loses his hair, but not everyone loses it in the same manner. The most important dermatological studies, in relation to hair loss, state that it is normal for us to lose between 500 and 1000 hairs daily. Some people lose up to 150 hairs a day without this being the initial symptom of a drastic fall that should put us on alert and require a medical treatment as soon as possible.
However, all people who have seen that their scalp shows more thinning spots for some time now, more hair remained in the comb or in the brush when combing it or they have an excessive hair fall while washing their hair, should go to the specialist for an exam and find what may be the causes of their hair fall.
Often the causes of this fall are related to periods of stress. These usually cause a greater fall of hair follicles of the scalp as a physical reaction to a psychological problem. Hence, it is essential to go to a doctor to get a diagnosis in this regard since, in addition to relieving mental fatigue, by keeping stress under control you will begin to recover hair loss.
Another cause of hair loss is the lack of nutrients caused by poor diet. The lack of vitamin B, folic acid and some minerals, as well as an unbalanced or low diet in fruits and vegetables can ultimately result in loss of hair. Again it is advisable to go to the doctor to find out if this is our case, since being treated we will recover lost hair.
Similarly, it is important to underline that the start of certain medical treatments and the intake of certain medications can cause a severe hair loss in a short time. In most cases, once treatment is finished or the taking of certain pharmaceutical components is changed or finished, scalp will be repopulated.
Different types of alopecia exist and we are all exposed to this desease throughout life. So true is it that, half of women and two out of three men will share the same bad luck and suffer from a hair loss if they do not undergo any treatment to repopulate the areas where hair no longer grows.
However, for this problem there is a solution. We are referring to hair transplant through the micrograft of hair follicles, taken from the lower back area of the donor’s scalp, into the bald or thinning areas of the patient. This is the FUE technique that guarantees any person suffering from alopecia a total recovery of his hair in a few months through a quick, painless and low cost intervention.
