Hair is composed of keratin, a protein generated in hair follicles in the skin's outer surface. As follicles build new hair cells, old cells are driven out through the epidermis at a rate of around six inches every year. The visible hair is actually a thread of dead keratin cells. Approximately 90% of the hair on a person's scalp is growing at any given moment. Each follicle has its own life cycle, which is affected by age, sickness, and a range of other circumstances. Hair growth diminishes as individuals become older. An average person sheds roughly 50 to 150 individual hairs every day as part of our hair cycle. This shedding may also occur at an abnormally high rate as a result of severe trauma or sickness. Stress and hair loss are also highly related. In such cases, you might experience excessive hair loss.
When the hair follicle is weakened and regeneration does not occur, hair loss becomes a lifelong condition. A disturbance in the hair cycle leads to the production of bald patches or, in severe cases, hair loss over the entire scalp. According to several studies, 70% of men and 50% of women will have androgenetic alopecia at some point in their life. If you've observed your hair thinning or falling out in clumps, there might be various underlying problems that a dermatologist can diagnose, such as hormonal imbalances, nutrient deficiency, age, and genetics.
There are various things that might be causing your hair to fall out.
Hormonal changes and nutritional deficiencies may be transient, and you may restore hair volume after the reason for your hair loss has been identified and treated. However, there are also circumstances when the production of other hormones, such as dihydrotestosterone, results in irreversible hair loss. DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is a byproduct of androgen hormone production. It has been linked to irreversible hair loss. They are regarded as “hereditary disorders” because your genetic composition, which you acquired from your parents, has a significant impact on them. Similarly, if an individual has a hereditary vulnerability, there are additional disorders that might cause irreversible hair loss.
The hair transplant process is the only permanent approach to restore the volume of your hair, in which hair follicles are extracted from the 'donor site' on your scalp and implanted in the recipient site, which is experiencing hair loss. Hair transplant is the best hair loss treatment for men and women.
