What is the cause of hair loss?
Hair loss can be caused by factors ranging from illness, medication, poor diet, hormones and over-styling. Any one of these causes can interfere with the hair growth cycle, and can prevent hair follicles from growing new hair.
We lose on average 100-150 hairs per day. And hair grows at an average of ½ inch per month. But when you notice more extreme hair shedding or slowed hair growth than this, it could be a hair loss symptom. For women, your hair loss symptoms may be thinning hair or gradually more exposed scalp on the top of your head.
For men, you may find a growing bald spot on top of your head. About 50% of people have some kind of hair loss by the age of 50. For hair loss symptoms due to aging or hormones, women’s loss tends to be temporary while men’s is most often permanent. But never fear, if men take action early and take special supplements for hair growth, they can nourish thinning hair to prevent further hair loss symptoms. Hair loss symptoms can cause psychological stress for women, especially because society places such an emphasis on beautiful hair and hair as a source of women’s femininity. Many men and women who have hair loss report feelings of depression, self-consciousness and low self-esteem.
Vitamins and Natural Hair Loss Treatments
Hair loss caused by bad diet or lack of vitamins and minerals is telogen transportation, a temporary hair loss condition that causes hairs that are usually in the anagen (growing) stage to be prematurely pushed into the telogen (resting) phase of the hair growth cycle, triggering those hairs to fall out. Telogen transportation can be treated over several months. Treat hair loss naturally by eating more vitamins and supplements, and minerals for hair loss, such as Vitamin C, Biotin, Niacin, Iron and Zinc. If you cannot get these nutrients in the foods you eat, try vitamins for hair growth which we will prescribe for you in our BioCell Centre.
