Having voluminous hair can be the secret to looking youthful and radiant. If you are facing hair loss, you may find your confidence shedding along with your hair. Since hair loss is often associated with ageing, maintaining healthy hair can help you look younger and boost your self-esteem. Let’s take a look at what causes hair loss and how it can be treated.
Hair loss and thinning may look different on everyone depending on the root cause that it stems from. Here are some ways hair can decrease in volume.
Male Pattern Hair Loss (MPHL) is largely visible as a receding hairline on the front of the head and over the vertex of the head. It is associated with a progressive decline in the diameter, length and pigmentation of the hair shaft over the defined regions.
As opposed to the topical nature of MPHL, Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) is made visible by the widespread thinning over the scalp without frontal hairline recession. Ways to diagnose it include checking the diversity of hair shaft thickness, reduced number of triple hairs and an increased number of single hairs per follicular unit.
It is normal to shed hair throughout the day even if you have healthy hair. To determine if your hair shedding is excessive, refer to the graphic to compare your average daily hair loss.
The aim of treatment is to slow or stop the progression of hair loss rather than to promote hair regrowth. Although some women do experience hair regrowth with treatment, each individual will respond differently to treatment as the results are variable.
