Understanding the reasons behind hair loss
Male pattern baldness is a very common reason for hair loss, but it is far from the only cause. Below you will find some of the other main causes behind hair loss:
- Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition that causes hair to fall out in patches. Hair loss is usually temporary
- Scarring alopecia is much rarer. It destroys the hair follicles and replaces them with scar tissue
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) creates hormonal imbalance and overall hair thinning
- Thyroid problems affect the hair-growth cycle resulting in hair loss
- Childbirth and menopause trigger hormonal changes which can result in hair loss
- Extreme stress can cause a sudden and dramatic shedding of hair
- Chemotherapy and radiotherapy can both trigger dramatic hair loss
By carrying out an in-depth assessment, Dr Nicole can determine the reason behind your hair loss in order to target the treatment effectively.
