Losing hair is an embarrassing situation and may smash your poise or amour propre.


We do not want to promote hair as your self-worth determining factor.


Behavioural findings, however, marked that people feel isolated and discouraged when they encounter hair thinning.


While hair loss is temporary in some cases, the major reasons behind permanent mane loss are still scary. 


Whoosh them off

Thank goodness, the treatment for Alopecia (most common hair loss) is handy & available.  
Below have discussed the risk factors for Alopecia and the possible savings. 


What is Alopecia?

Alopecia is an umbrella term including all hair loss types. Depending upon the type, the reason for hair loss will be different, and so the hair loss pattern.


The common example is Androgenetic Alopecia – It’s a pattern- baldness that occurs with age due to hormonal changes.


Other Types include: 

Frontal fibrosing Alopecia: Receding hairline is the symptom. It’s common with women postmenopause.


Cicatricial Alopecia: hair loss due to inflammation forming scar tissue. 


Alopecia Areata: Patchy hair loss


Traction alopecia: Hair loss by physical stress on the hair. 


Alopecia risk factors

You need to realize that hair loss can occur at any stage of life, and there are numerous reasons to blame. 
In the majority of the cases, Alopecia was found to be hereditary and age-borne, and men are more affected than women. In addition, the researchers concluded that certain lifestyle and genetic factors might increase your risk of Alopecia. 


You may have a higher risk of suffering hair loss if: 

  • You have a family history of balding 
  • You’re pregnant or were recently pregnant (hormonal changes can cause hair to fall out)
  • You take prescription medications (some medications cause hair loss as a side effect)
  • You have certain medical conditions, including diabetes or lupus
  • You have poor nutrition


How can you reduce the risk of Alopecia?

Not all, but some risk factors based on certain types of Alopecia can be modified. 


You can reduce your risk of developing Alopecia by: 
Eating a healthy diet: Reports show that a good diet including fresh herbs and raw vegetables may delay androgenic Alopecia.


Eat more protein: One study correlated hair loss and amino acid and micronutrient deficiencies. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and hair follicles are largely made up of keratin, a protein.
Taking certain supplements: If your levels are low, vitamin D and iron supplements may help keep your hair fuller for longer. However, research suggests that getting too much of certain micronutrients, such as vitamin A can contribute to hair loss. It’s best to discuss supplements with your doctor before starting anything.


Caring for your hair gently: Tight ponytails and other pulled-back hairstyles may lead to extra shedding. 


Reducing stress: If stress is the main cause of your hair loss, practising stress-management techniques may help. 


If lifestyle interventions don’t do the trick, you may want to consider hair-loss medications or professional treatments. Several hair-loss treatment options are available to treat such hair problems, including prescription-strength, customized medications, exosomal therapy, and platelet-rich plasma therapy. Low-level laser caps are another option, and hair transplants are available for patients who are a good fit.
