Hair Loss Treatments
The distress of hair loss is something personalÂ yet it is very common. Most hair loss is â€śAndrogenicâ€ť and occurs in men due to changes in the amount and effects of the main androgens, testosterone and dihydrotestosterone, in the hair follicles.
Most hair loss is not associated with systemic or internal illness and doesnâ€™t have to do with a poor diet. A personâ€™s hair may just thin out as per the family genetics and ageing process. Sometimes a hormonal imbalance can affect hair loss as well as severe stress, or menopause.It is suggested to follow proper hair hygiene with regular shampoo/conditioning and maintain good nutritional health.
Some medications list â€śhair lossâ€ť among their potential side effects, but it is unlikely for most drugs to induce hair loss. CancerÂ treatments and immune suppression medicationsÂ commonly causeÂ hair loss as a side effect. Most often after chemotherapy a patient loses their entire head of hair. The hair wonâ€™t grow back fully untilÂ 6 â€“ 12 months.
