Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis
Alopecia AreataThis is generally considered an autoimmune disorder. It causes small, patchy circular bald patches in several parts of the scalp.
Alopecia TotalisThis is total loss of scalp hair, a progressive form of alopecia areata.
Alopecia UniversalisThis is total loss of hair from the entire body, also a severe progressive form of alopecia areata
Androgenetic AlopeciaAndrogenetic alopecia is hormone related. Androgens are any of the many hormones that shape & control a human chrematistic. A human body is programmed to produce an enzyme know as 5 alpha reductase. When the androgen hormone in the scalp produces testosterone which mixes w/ 5 alpha reductase, it produces dihydrotestosterone, or dht. Dht is not well received by hair follicles, cutting off blood supply which is critical to growth of new hair. Thinning & or balding process begins when this occurs.
Hormonal CausesPregnancy, birth control pills, menopause.
MedicationsExcessive doses of vitamin a, hypertension medications.
Physical - Emotional StressSurgeries, severe illnesses & emotional stress can cause hair loss in women. The body simply cannot cope w/ the pressure & shuts down production of hair during periods of stress since it is not life threatening. Instead, it redeploys its energies toward repair & rebuilding of vital body constitutions. There is usually about a three-month interval between the stressful event & the start of hair loss. Similarly, it may take about three month before hair re-growth is noticeable. This means that the total hair loss & re-growth cycle can last approximately 6 - 9 months or possibly longer when induced by physical or emotional stress. There are other less apparent health conditions which may go undetected that can contribute to hair loss. These include anemia or low blood count & thyroid abnormalities. These conditions can be detected by a simple, inexpensive blood test & are hence recommended to detect the exact cause of female pattern hair loss.
Diet ConsiderationsWomen are more prone to dieting than men & some diets can lead to hair loss in women. Commercial diet programs, which are designed or administered under the direction of a physician w/ prescribed meals, dietary supplements & vitamin ingestion, are fashionable. Sometimes, dieters are advised to supplement certain vitamins to the program to prevent hair loss. Skin experts disagree, however, as most dermatologists believe vitamins cannot prevent hair loss associated w/ rapid, significant weight loss. Furthermore, many of these supplements are high in vitamin a, which can accelerate & magnify hair loss.
Hormonal ConsiderationsHormonal changes are a common cause of female hair loss. Many women do not realize that hair loss can occur after pregnancy or following discontinuation of birth control pills. It is important to remember that hair loss may be delayed by three months following the hormonal change & another three months will be required for new growth to be fully achieved. Lets discuss the main causes of hair loss, because once cause of hair loss is identified, one is better equipped to make an informed decision & take reasonable steps to stop & reverse the process. When this happens, one cause of hair loss is resolved: stress.
GenesGenes can give you stunning looks but may also be a cause of hair loss for you. In a vast majority of cases, hair loss is hereditary, passed down the genes from either side of parentage. Some studies indicate that baldness from the maternal side has a greater chance of it being passed along.
Here Is the Most Common Explanation How Genes Can Be a Cause of Hair Loss:During the fetus formation stage, some hair genes make hair follicles susceptible to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone, more commonly referred to as simply dht. When this link is established, the follicle starts to shrink, sprouting thinner & weaker hair at every cycle. Eventually, the follicle or root dies & baldness is complete.
Stress, Trauma, DietOther causes of hair loss could be surgery, medication, high level of work or family related stress & diet or nutrition changes all these can contribute to hair loss. These causes of hair loss are generally short lived & hair growth is restored once the situation normalizes. In any case, the above mentioned causes of hair loss rarely contribute to baldness.
MedicationsExcessive doses of vitamin a, hypertension medications.
