What is Hair Loss?
Hair loss, also known as alopecia, refers to the condition in which there is an unexpected and excessive loss of hair from the scalp or other parts of the body. It can vary in severity and can be either temporary or permanent. Hair loss can occur due to a variety of factors, including heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions, or as a normal part of the aging process. While hair loss can affect both men and women, it is more commonly observed in men.
Baldness, a term often associated with hair loss, generally refers to excessive hair loss from the scalp. The most common cause of baldness is hereditary hair loss that occurs with age. Some individuals may choose to let their hair loss run its course without intervention, while others may opt to cover it up using hairstyles, makeup, hats, scarves, or choose from available treatments to prevent further hair loss or promote hair regrowth.
What are symptoms of Hair Loss?
Hair loss can manifest in various ways, depending on its underlying cause. Symptoms of hair loss may include:
Gradual Thinning on Top of the Head: This is the most common type of hair loss, often occurring with age. In men, it might lead to receding hairlines, while women might experience a broadening of the part in their hair.
Circular or Patchy Bald Spots: Some individuals might experience hair loss in circular or patchy spots on the scalp, beard, or eyebrows. Itching or discomfort might occur before hair falls out.
Sudden Loosening of Hair: Physical or emotional shocks can cause hair to loosen, resulting in hair loss. Handfuls of hair might come out while combing, washing, or gently tugging. This type of hair loss usually leads to overall thinning but is temporary.
Chemo Hair Loss: Certain medical conditions and treatments, such as chemotherapy for cancer, can result in hair loss across the entire body, and not just the crown. The hair typically grows back after the treatment.
Patches of Scaling Spreading Over the Scalp: This might indicate ringworm infection and could be accompanied by broken hair, redness, swelling, and oozing.
