Ways To Tell That You Are Losing Your Hair

Hair Loss

Androgenetic Alopecia

Many people don’t realize that they are beginning to lose their hair until the problem has pretty much progressed. The shock that occurs when they realize that their hair is beginning to thin can take a toll on a person’s physical and mental health.

Despite the fact that it is a natural process that the body’s genetics triggers hair loss, women in particular can end up feeling embarrassed and isolated. It’s important to remember that approximately 38% of women will experience hair thinning, the most common type of which is androgenetic alopecia. Therefore, there is nothing to be ashamed about if your hair is beginning to thin. The reason why is normally a combination of a family history of hair loss combined with changes in the levels of male hormones known as androgens and aging. The right combination of these things mean that, in time, the size of individual hair follicles will begin to shrink. As follicles become smaller, they produce thinner, shorter, and more fragile hair. Over time, the number of follicles will also decrease, further contributing to hair loss.

Common Signs

Of Hair Loss

The key to combatting hair loss is to catch thinning hair early. The sooner hair loss is recognized, the quicker treatment can be started and the more likely it is that treatment will be effective.

The 8 most common signs that you’re beginning to lose your hair or that your hair is thinning include:

– widening of the part
– seeing more skin on the scalp when you pull back your hair
– your hair is looking flat or if it’s not holding style well
– there is increasing hair on the pillow when you wake up in the morning
– there are more strands on your hair brush after brushing
– there is more hair in the drain after a shower
– you are getting sunburn on the scalp
– you are getting a thinner ponytail

If at least two of the signs that you’re beginning to lose your hair are apparent, chances are that your hair is thinning.

A Solution For Hair Loss

If you are noticing several of these signs, it is important to see a physician first to rule out more serious causes of hair loss such as thyroid disease, anemia, hormonal abnormalities, or an autoimmune condition. Once these causes are ruled out and the hair loss is deemed to be from natural causes, treatment can be as simple as a supplement of 2.5 mg of biotin daily and gentle, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. A physician might recommend a prescription medication to deal with hair loss. However, these come with their own risks.

At the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic, we work with our patients to identify the root cause of the hair loss and then to provide options that are accommodating to their lifestyle. Many patients seek out hair transplants in response to signs that their hair is thinning. The hair transplants of today far exceed what was available years ago, allowing a person to produce natural hair in the most effective way possible.
