Types of Hair Loss in Men

Hair fall or hair loss in medical terminology is known as alopecia. It can affect just your head or your entire body and can be temporary or permanent. It is considered normal to lose about 50-100 hair a day. With about 100,000 hair on your scalp, this hair loss is not significant or noticeable. Anything beyond this is termed as hair fall or hair loss.
So, what are these types of hair loss ?

Stage 2

Male pattern hair loss or Androgenic alopecia

This is the most common type of hair loss that begins with hair thinning. This hair loss is genetic in nature.

Hair thinning or balding in a specific pattern

DHT hormone that attacks the follicle. The rate of hair loss depends on a lot of underlying factors like stress, sleep, energy, digestion and more.

FDA approved treatment or sometimes working on the root cause can do wonders.

Stage 2

Telogen Effluvium

This type of hair loss usually occurs when a large number of hair follicles enter the resting phase (telogen) of the growth cycle, but the next growth phase doesn’t begin. This causes hair fall without new hair growth. Generally, this occurs after acute illness, childbirth, surgeries, or due to thyroid problems, use of certain medications or nutritional deficiencies. It usually is temporary and easily rectified or sometimes may become chronic and require treatment. If your hair fall does not stop beyond a month then treatment is recommended.

Excessive hair fall

Some major shock to the body like covid, typhoid, surgery, dengue, excessive weight loss along with fad diets, even treatments like keratin and straightening. The hair fall starts 3 to 4 months later.

Clinically proven serums like redensyl, capixyl and procapil. Along with identification of the trigger. Good nutrition is key here.

Stage 2

Alopecia Areata

An autoimmune condition, where the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissues, including the hair follicles. This causes hair to fall out and prevents new hair from growing. Alopecia areata can affect adults or children and can begin suddenly without any warning signs. Hair loss from the scalp is typically in patches and painless in Alopecia Areata. Hair fall can also occur from other parts of the body including eyebrows and eyelashes (alopecia universalis), beard (alopecia barbae) etc. Alopecia totalis is when all the hair from the scalp falls out.

Coin size patches

Clinically proven treatments ranging from ointments to injections are available.

Stage 2

Traction Alopecia

Some hairstyles like tight ponytails or braids pull hair in the same direction away from the scalp with force for a long period of time and lead to damage of hair follicles. Traction alopecia leads to thinning of hair or bald spots, but can be reversed once the hair style is changed.

Excessive hairfall becuase of hair pulling

Caused because of pulled back hair styles, pony tails, braids or constant tugging of your hair.

Clinically proven treatments ranging from ointments to injections are available.
