Hair Loss

Hair loss can occur for many reasons including genetic factors and medical conditions. It can manifest itself as general thinning or hair loss in localised areas. We understand how difficult living with hair loss can be and offer treatments to help stimulate hair re-growth.

As hair growth goes through its natural cycle, it’s completely normal to lose some of it on daily basis. It can become a cause for concern when you start losing an unusual amount of hair, however.

As hair growth goes through its natural cycle, it’s completely normal to lose some of it on daily basis. It can become a cause for concern when you start losing an unusual amount of hair, however. In order to recognise problems associated with hair loss or hair thinning it’s important to understand the hair growth cycle itself.  It consists of three distinct stages – anagen, catagen and telogen.

Anagen Phase

This is the hair growth phase. Hair grows around 1.5cm a month, and usually faster in the summer than in winter. This phase lasts on an average around 3-5 years, so a full-length hair averages 45-75cm.

Catagen Phase

This is a short transitional phase that lasts around 10 days.

Telogen Phase

Finally, hair enters the telogen phase, which is a resting phase where hair is released and falls out. The follicle then remains inactive for 3 months after which the whole process is repeated. Thankfully, each hair follicle is independent and goes through the growth cycle at different times, otherwise all our hair would fall out at once. Instead, we only shed a certain number of hairs a day – up to 80 hairs on a healthy scalp.

Hair loss, hair thinning and problems with hair growth occur when your growth cycle is disrupted. This can occur due to a wide range of reasons including genetic and hormonal factors, ageing, health conditions, metabolic imbalances or improper nutrition. Treatments for hair loss must be tailored keeping in mind each individual case, which is where our team of experts can help and provide a solution to your hair loss or hair thinning problems.

Depending in the cause of hair loss it can manifest in different ways. It can come on suddenly or gradually, some types of hair loss are temporary, and others are permanent.

Signs of hair loss

  • Gradual hair thinning. This is the most common type of hair loss, affecting both men and women as they age. In men, hair often begins to recede from the forehead, while women typically retain the hairline on the forehead but have a broadening of the parting in their hair.
  • Circular or patchy bald spots. Some people experience coin-sized bald spots. This type of hair loss mostly affects only the scalp, but can also occur in beards or eyebrows. Your skin may become itchy or painful before the hair falls out.
  • Sudden loosening of hair. This mostly occurs due to stress. A physical or emotional shock can cause hair to loosen. Handfuls of hair may come out when combing or washing your hair or even after gentle pulling.
  • Full-body hair loss. Some conditions and medical treatments, such as chemotherapy, can result in the loss of hair, this is usually temporary and hair tends to grow back.
