Before solving a problem one must understand the problem. Hair loss is the most common medical problem. Millions of people all over the world are struggling in the endless battle to stop their hair loss. How ever, most of them did not spend a couple of minutes learning what exactly the meaning of hair loss is. Read the following lines to learn the basics about hair, hair loss and hair loss treatments. Did you know that an average scalp has about 150,000 hair follicles and hair - more than 90% of them are continuously growing.
What is hair?
Hair is the fastest growing tissue of the body. It is made of keratins which are a type of proteins. Each hair strand includes three layers: the medulla (the inner layer), the cortex and the cuticle. Hair grows from roots - Those roots get the vital ingredients to the hair growth by the blood. The roots are a living tissue but the visible hair strand is a dead tissue. Therefore, any hair loss treatment should take care of the scalp and roots and not of the hair strands.
How does the hair grow? It is natural to loose hair. Actually, we all loose about 100 hairs a day. We start noticing that we suffer from hair loss only after losing more than 50% of our hair.
The phases of the life cycle of hair are:
Anagen - In this phase the hair is actively growing. This phase lasts about 5 years. Catagen - In this phase the hair falls out. It lasts about 3 weeks. Telogen - In this phase the hair is resting. It lasts about 12 weeks.
What are the causes of hair loss?
For each cause one may find different hair loss treatments. Hair loss treatments include anything from the FDA approved hair loss drug called Propecia or Rogaine to natural hair loss treatments as Rogaine to hair transplant surgeries.

Hair Loss and Stress
Stress & Hair Loss by Raj Pandey
Everyone loses hair on a daily basis - this is seen as quite normal. However there are a variety of factors that can prematurely accelerate this process - a major one is any form of stress mental or physical. Stress has become the latest buzz word in the our lives. Whether it is from work or family many people are feeling that they are overwhelmed and simply cannot keep up with the demands made on them.
Usually stress is felt when change is happening that we believe we cannot control. What some call the "stress response" is also seen in your own body in the form of nutritional deficits and chemical imbalances. This "bio storm" so to speak very often adversely the proper environment for healthy hair. In fact, in some cases hair loss can be tied to a specific event such as a death, job loss or other sudden trauma.
Chronic stress can have the same effect as a sudden trauma which is way maintaining balance in our lives is so important. So if you notice a sudden increase in hair loss, after checking with your Doctor, consider also as part of your Hair Loss Treatment Plan checking in with a counselor. Create a Stress Plan that will lower as much stress as possible in your life.

Hair Restoration: What To Expect by Raj Pandey
Like every field of surgery, the treatment of hair loss is a constantly evolving field. Today's surgeons offer new developments, new findings in research, new medications, and a long resume of experience. There are many reasons that a patient may consult with a hair loss surgeon for a hair restoration procedure. Nevertheless, almost all patients have the same expectations: they wish to look the way they did prior to their hair loss.
In an effort to meet these demands often the first activity to go is our own self care. We think "Oh I can do without that for now". While this may be true in the moment what often occurs is a an unhealthy response to stress that goes beyond losing interest in self care. This ranges from neglect of yourself to abuse of substances or behaviours just to deal with stress.
Cosmetic surgery, although it's been highlighted as glamorous and trendy, is anything but a stroll in the park. These procedures are long, often painful, and very costly. Many patients are under the impression that they'll walk in the door bald and walk out with a thick head of hair the same day. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Hair transplants can take several weeks, sometimes months. It's a slow process with a lot of healing between appointments.
Why would someone undergo a cosmetic procedure? There are several reasons. Some patients aren't satisfied with their own current 'look.' Some patients aren't satisfied with the opinions others may have about their current 'look.' Whatever the reasons are for such a procedure, patients should research several surgeons before selecting a surgeon. Never take blind referrals. The advice from a colleague or friend is great, as long as they have had such a procedure completed by the same surgeon.
Patients need to be realistic when it comes to their expected results. What can and can not be done largely depends on your age and current medical condition. Most people desire to 'look younger.' That's a very natural response! We all want to find the fountain of youth. But ask yourself honestly: will hair restoration actually make you look younger? If you're, let's say, a sixty year old woman who has fine wrinkles around your mouth and forehead, puffy eyes, and rough skin from years of sun-will you be content with hair restoration. Are you trying to change your hair or your overall appearance?
Unfortunately, cosmetic surgery can often lead a patient to pursue a chain of surgeries. What may start as one procedure, can branch into several completely unrelated procedures. The patient is temporarily pleased with their 'new look' until they find another 'flaw' to correct. As we stated earlier-expect realistic results. It's important that you create a bond of trust with your surgeon. They most certainly will keep anything you say confidential.
Your frankness and honesty are essential. List all medical treatments, hospitalizations, and allergies that you have or have had in the past. Something that happened in 1992 may not seem relevant to you, but it may be of importance to your doctor.

Innovations in Hair Transplant and Other Alternatives to Hair Loss
Although many people do not have visible hair loss, hair loss is a natural
daily occurrence. Approximately 50 to 150 hairs are lost each day, but
most hair regenerates because the hair follicle remains intact. If the
follicles shrink due to heredity, hormones, stress, infection, certain
prescription medication, illness, nutritional deficiency or age, the hair
is not restored. When shedding significantly surpasses hair growth, baldness
occurs. This Male Pattern Baldness usually begins at the forehead or on
the top of the head, and progresses to the familiar horseshoe-shaped fringe
of hair. Depending on your type of hair loss, treatments are available.
Since hair loss may be an early sign of a disease, it is important to find the cause so that it can be properly treated. A doctor usually inspects the hair shafts, and may perform a biopsy of the skin. A biopsy helps determine if the hair follicles are normal; if they are not, the biopsy may indicate possible causes. If the doctor's examination finds signs of irregularities or other serious illness, blood tests to identify those disorders may be required.
Assuming no diseases, or pathologies there are two medications that can treat baldness effectively. Minoxidil, originally used to treat hypertension, has been shown to stimulate hair growth in adult men and women with a certain type of baldness. The exact way that this medicine works is unknown. Hair growth usually occurs after the medicine has been used for several months and lasts only as long as the medicine continues to be used. Hair loss will begin again within a few months after Minoxidil treatment is stopped. Minoxidil is applied directly to the scalp on a daily basis. Minoxidil can be used for both men and women.
Proscar, a medication used for prostate enlargement, works by blocking the effects of male hormones on the hair follicles and is taken by mouth daily. Individuals with increased levels of the hormone DHT in the scalp experience a shortening growth phase or thinning of the hair. Proscar lowers the level of this hormone, and contributes to the normalization of the hair growth cycle. Proscar may be used for men only.
Improvement may occur with either of these drugs when taken for several months. The most important effect of these drugs may be to prevent further hair loss. The effects last only as long as the drugs are taken. A more permanent solution is a hair transplant, in which hair follicles are removed from one part of the scalp and transplanted to the bald area. During this procedure, the surgeon removes a section of hair form the back of the head, near the base of the skull. This area of hair is genetically different because they do not have the gene for hair loss in their follicles. Only a small scar is left and unless one shaves the back of the scalp is it not noticeable. The donated follicles are then placed in saline solution, while small incisions are made in the areas of hair loss. Each individual donated follicle is placed creating an uneven ordinary hairline. After the hairline is formed, the remaining donor follicles are put where thinned or balding spots occur.
In the newer hair transplant technique, only one or two hairs are transplanted at a time. Although this technique is more tedious, and time consuming, it does not require removal of large plugs of skin and allows the implants to be oriented in the same direction as the natural hair.
If satisfactory treatments are not appropriate for your type of hair loss, you may consider trying different hairstyles, wigs, hair weaves, hairpieces, or artificial hair replacement, or very simply wear a hat.
Female Hair Loss - Coping with Hair Loss
Ladies, don't panic! Believe it or not, hair loss in women is quite common. While you may be quite surprised to hear that, it's the truth. Approximately 20 million women are experiencing some form of hair loss in the United States, right now! Hair Loss does NOT imply that you are less attractive. FYI: you're as beautiful as you always were. As difficult as it may seem, it's essential that you keep your good attitude, self-confidence, and social life.
Perhaps the social factors that surround us women make the experience of female hair loss so much more difficult for us. Men become 'distinguished' once their hair turns gray. Women rely on hair-dressers. Men bald and age with perfection, what about us? What will people say about us? And that's the problem right there: we care too much about what they think about us.
You may not be looking for a reason right now, you may be searching for a remedy. Well, in order to achieve a healthy remedy we must seek the cause of hair loss. Fortunately, we live in the information age. Doctors seem to have more and more education on many conditions as well as treatments to correct them. It's up to you to investigate the changes in your body.
A woman's body can go through many changes that may promote hair loss. Has your mind and body gone through an excessive amount of stress lately? The birth of a child or the loss of something special/important (such as a loved one, job, etc.) can cause a woman to experience hair-loss, or display other stress-related symptoms.
Instead of traveling further down the stress-spiral, women need to become strong and proactive during this tough time. If you've made it this far than you are on the right track. Education is key to understanding and overcoming your trials and tribulations. Women are encouraged to remain open-minded to the facts of their condition, as it is imperative to treatment.
There are three main types of female hair loss that women can experience: Alopecia Areata, Androgenetic Alopecia, and Telogen Effluvium. In order to establish which condition you are experiencing, your physician will most likely request a blood test. Here's the good news: women's hair loss may resolve itself. Typically, most hair loss in women is due to hormonal imbalances, medications, stress, and pregnancy. Medication may be administered to reverse the process of hair loss.
Once you receive an accurate diagnosis, you must remain patient. Depression and stress will only further aggravate your condition. Do not try any over the counter remedies as this could further promote hair loss and/or possibly cause other complications. Listen to your physician. If you don't like what you hear, get a second opinion.
Finally, and most importantly, try and remain positive. Write a list of your personal thoughts and feelings about hair loss. Keep track of feelings that may change over time. Be a realist, NOT an extremist. So, you may not be the most gorgeous woman in the world. What woman thinks they are? You're certainly not the least attractive woman in the world! If you find yourself withdrawing from society and your normal routines, you may wish to seek counseling. Counselors are available to help you understand and cope with your condition.

To all bald-headed men.
When you drive at night do you have to turn your head down to low beam? Yes, there are many such thoughtless jokes about baldness, in both males and females. However, loss of head hair really is a problem, which causes a great deal of worry and unhappiness, to those afflicted.
Hopefully, there may be some help and answers for you, within this web site. It is often easier to reduce the ageing and thinning of healthy hair, than to regrow into follicles that are already dormant. Reversing and preventing further hair loss may also be possible.
Some products and techniques could be:
Topical ketokonazole, an anti-fungal/5-alfa inhibitor of reductase. Finasteride and/or minoxidel, known in the United States as propecia and Rogaine, or Rogeine, respectively. Placebos have average results, but not usually as high as other specific products Hair cloning, or multiplication, using self replenishing follicle stem cells. Hair transplants have been used for many years.
In our society, we're constantly pressured to look good and age to perfection. But as a man or woman, you have to realize that anti-aging creams and hair re-growth remedies are usually nothing more than promising gimmicks. There is no such thing as anti-aging. There is no such thing as aging to perfection. If these products work at all, they will only delay the process of aging and balding. Most men and women get so consumed with their the idea of balding that they often overlook their health.
To lower androgen levels, aerobic exercises may be beneficial. This may also help stress reduction which can be an aid to slow the loss of hair. Senanoa repens/saw palmetto, a DHT inhibit talk and a herb. Fewer side-effects and less expensive than products such as dutasteride, or finesteride. Resveratrol is a lipase inhibitor, made from grape skins.
Chinese herbs and Chinese medicine may be tried. Seek help from qualified acupuncturists, herbalists and holistic medicine practitioners. Beta Sitosterol, found in oils of seeds, may also help by lowering cholesterol. Use an extract, as the heavy consumption of oils can aggravate the hairloss problem.
As we all know, baldness in males, is more common than females - thank goodness! Baldness can be caused by a number of factors, including the trigger, an enzyme called 5-alfa reductase, which converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone - DHT, which can inhibit growth in genetically fine hairs.
Some female baldness may be a result of an oestrogen reduction. Oestrogen usually counteracts testosterones balding action. Tight ponytails and corn rows, could also contribute to female hair loss, as may constantly wearing a hat. This short article can, in no way, cover the wide spectrum of causes and treatments for hair loss. Search the internet through search engines such as Google, etc and seek help from alternative health practitioners, as well as traditional western medicine.

There's a lot of different opinions on this topic. While some doctors may argue that treatments and/or surgical procedures are required, others argue that there's a natural approach to delaying hair loss. You're worried that your hair loss makes you look older, right? Perhaps it's an inherited trait that can not be reversed without the aid of medication. Maybe your hair loss is only temporary.
It's become obvious that many types of hair loss are influenced by genetics. Take a glance at your father and his father, etc. If you've inherited this trait, somewhere along the line you are bound to find someone in your family with pattern baldness. But this doesn't mean that there's nothing you can do about it. If you're thinning and/or balding it doesn't mean that you're getting old. And it most certainly doesn't mean that you should become depressed and kick your health to the curb.
They become obsessed with the idea of having fuller, thicker hair, that they'll try any product-regardless of the possible side effects. Which in truth, is very sad. Want to look younger? Losing excess body fat and building muscle strength will make you look ten years younger. You can do many nutritional related things to look naturally younger than you actually are.
Forget about hair loss for one moment. In our culture, we do so many things that promote the aging process already. Smoking, drinking, caffeine, fast food, diet pills, tampering with our hair's natural color-it's no wonder why people are aging rapidly with health problems.
Now ask yourself: is there anything you can do to slow down your own aging process? Sure you can go through a surgical procedure and have a transplant, but will it actually make you look younger? Who is the procedure for? Yourself or others? Feeling good about your health will make you feel good about your overall appearance.
The point here is-there's nothing wrong with you. Hair loss is not a disease. Your body is telling you that you're older, wiser, and more experienced. Worry about the things you can change right now. You can change your diet, you can change poor habits. That only takes a moment. If you're a smoker, you can consciously become a non-smoker by the time you've finished reading this sentence. However, reverting hair loss on the other hand, is a gradual process.
