Hair Loss
Hair loss is a common, chronic problem that affects many people at certain time points of their lives.
Hair loss disorders are a large, heterogenous group of conditions that have various clinical manifestations, pathologic findings, and aetiologies.It may occur due to disorders of hair cycling, hormonal system, immune system and inflammatory conditions that damage hair follicles, or inherited or acquired abnormalities in hair shafts.
Are you losing more hair than you should?
Most people lose from 50 to 100 strands of hair every day, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. We seldom count our hair on by one. We have visual clues for having hair loss. You may notice a significant amount of hair on your pillow when you wake up or more than normal amount may be left in the comb when you comb your hair (especially without tugging, which can pull the hair out).

Male Pattern Hair Loss

Male pattern hair loss (MPHL) is the most common type of hair loss in men. About 50% of men are affected by it at the age 50, and the frequency and severity increase with age. It is believed to be related to a combined effect of genetics and hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

MPHL is characterized by thinning of hair and progressive loss of hair on the scalp in a characteristic pattern. The front of the scalp, sides of the scalp, and crown of the scalp are typical sites of involvement. Back of the scalp is spared.

Female Pattern Hair Loss

Female pattern hair loss (FPHL) is a common form of non-scarring hair loss that most frequently occurs in adult women. It primarily affects the frontal scalp and vertex of the scalp. If left untreated, FPHL will result in a slow, progressive decline in the density of scalp hair. Fortunately, complete baldness is very unlikely.

Other Causes Of Hair Loss

Physical stress

Any physical stress such as major surgery, accident or even serious illness could cause temporary loss of hair.

Medical and other conditions

Thyroid disease, anemia, chemotherapy, protein deficiency and low vitamin levels may lead to hair loss.
Skin condition of the scalp such as seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis and fungal infection like ringworm could also cause hair loss.
Alopecia areata is a form of hair loss initiated the autoimmune destruction of hair follicles in localized areas of skin.
