The loss of more than 150 hair habitually or 200 in seasons such as Autumn can reveal that our hair is under a period of stress that leads to falling to abnormal levels, that is worth checking out by a physician.
One of the first warning signals for those who suffer from hair loss is hair weakening. It starts with a thinning first and with a subsequent fall that goes beyond the traditional regeneration process that occurs every six months in our scalp .
When the hair follicles that we lose are not regenerated and we notice that our hair loses volume, does not look healthy and then, little by little, our scalp presents thinning hair, by starting with areas such as the temples or the crown, we will end up showing bald patches in different areas of our head.
Since this can be a sign that you are suffering from alopecia or any other health problem that requires rapid intervention, it is necessary to consult a hair specialist who can tell you what is happening and how to stop the fall.
Symptoms of an abnormal hair loss
-Every time we lose more hair when combing or washing it and leave more hair on the pillow.
-Hair is thinner than a few months ago
-Progressively our hair is losing volume
-The receding hairlines are increasingly visible and our forehead does not stop gaining space
The causes for which our hair weakens, as we have been repeating, are several:
-Intake of foods that affect blood flow or produce side effects on our skin
-Diet lacking in folic acid, vitamin A, B and C or Omega 3.
How to treat a hair fall
The options we have to try to improve our hair health and to reverse our baldness are several.
Pharmacological treatments based on minoxidil and finasteride help improve blood flow and bring nutrients to the hair follicles. On the other hand we can resort to the intake of vitamin supplements that contain biotin, folic acid, vitamin B, cystine, zinc, brewer’s yeast, linoleic acid or Omega 6 to revitalize our hair.
In addition to these treatments, we also find what is known as regenerative medicine such as that stimulate the production of growth factors by oxygenating our blood and subsequently injecting it into the scalp in order to recover damaged follicles and strengthen the rest. A treatment that every time is offering better results when we want to recove our hair.
Among other capillary regeneration techniques we can mention ozone therapy, mesotherapy or low frequency laser. However, none of them have managed to offer the results that are offered by the hair implant through micrografts, following the FUE technique. This is a method that can offer results for a lifetime and with a really low investment that makes it a solution for anyone who is being a victim of alopecia or has been bald because of it.
