Hair is falling out! Why and what to do about it?

Baldness irritates men. It terrifies women. The cosmetics industry offers an arsenal to combat hair loss: shampoos, masks, capsules, injections. Folk methods also promise salvation. What to do when hair falls out?

Hair loss is not a diagnosis, but a symptom.

Every day we lose an average of 50 to 100 hairs and this is normal. If the daily hair loss exceeds 100, we are talking about baldness and with this you need to go to the doctor.

Baldness (alopecia) comes in different types.

The most common:

Androgenetic alopecia (hereditary). There is no specific gene for baldness, but some genes are still responsible for the sensitivity of hair follicles to the hormone dihydrotestosterone . Androgenetic alopecia occurs in both men and women. In men, it can occur any time after puberty. 

Traction baldness. It leads to a careless attitude to hair. For example, a hobby for dreadlocks, afrocos and irons. 

Senile or senile baldness. This is an inevitable situation when the amount of hair decreases with age, the hair follicles wear out … 

Hormonal alopecia (nested, alopecia totalis). The reasons for this alopecia are: hormonal disruption of the thyroid gland and parathyroid glands, adrenal tumor, hyperandrogenism in women (excess of male hormones produced by the adrenal glands or ovaries), hyperinsulinemia is a consequence of our love for desserts. 

There are conditions of diffuse or temporary hair loss: stress, prolonged exposure to the sun, cancer, anorexia, postpartum conditions, antidepressants and birth control pills. 

Hair loss is often earned by beauty salons offering valuable injections or ampoules with super effective drugs.

In case of hair loss, you do not need to ignore the problem, but you need to go to a doctor – an endocrinologist who will help solve this problem.
