Some people might like the bald look, but if you have started loosing your hair and want it back, come see us about hair replacement!
However, it is always a good idea to treat the cause before you treat the symptom, especially if your hair loss is due to a medical condition. In fact, if you start to replace your hair before you resolve what is causing you to lose your hair, you might just lose it all over again. And the second time around you are not only losing hair, but you’re losing time and money.
What Causes Hair Loss?
If you’re trying to find out what is causing your hair loss, the best answer is to go talk to your doctor. However, here are some common reasons you might be losing your hair.
Whether caused by age, other drastic physical changes like pregnancy, or—most common—genetics, hormonal changes play a big role in hair loss. If this is a permanent condition, you might want to look into medications that will help balance your hormones and that might help stop the hair loss.
Stress, medications (think chemotherapy), or even certain hairstyles can affect your hair, causing it to thin, get patchy, or completely fall out.
Probably the most serious hair loss cause, there are many medical conditions that can cause your hair to disappear. These include:
- Scalp infections
- Skin disorders
- Thyroid problems
- Alopecia areata, where your immune system attacks your hair
Once you’ve realized what is causing your hair loss, you can start to treat it. The first step of treatment is fixing the catalyst to the best of your ability. This might require therapy, medication, surgery, or simply removing extra stressors from your life. Once the root of the problem is taken care of, you can begin to treat the roots of your hair.
Whether you opt for medication, hair transplants, scalp reduction surgery, or a wig or hairpiece, your doctor can help you figure out the best way for you to replace your hair.
