Hair loss is not only common among men but also females. The most common types of hair loss include:
- Male-pattern hair loss — Hair loss affecting the top and front of the male scalp. A receding hairline is the most common form of this type of hair loss.
- Female-pattern hair loss — This appears as hair thinning in females and, similar to male-pattern hair loss, it affects the top and front of the scalp.
- Alopecia areata — Also referred to ‘spot baldness’, alopecia is an autoimmune disease that affects all areas of the body but more commonly the scalp. The two types are scarring and non-scarring alopecia.
What Causes Hair Loss?
As we grow older we begin to reduce cells, collagen and elastin; hair loss is no different. Genetic factors and hormonal changes may also be a reason why people begin to lose hair but poor diet and disease may also contribute; although less common factors.
How to Prevent Hair Loss
There are many natural options out there to help prevent hair loss:
- Shampoo — The shampoos you use can have an effect on the treatment of your hair.
- Meditation — Stress can cause a lot of problems and hair loss is no different. Meditating reduces this stress.
- Green tea — by revitalising hair follicles, green tea can help to stimulate hair growth. Condition your hair with green tea to notice a change.
If some of these natural options do not tend to work then perhaps our PRP treatment is what you may need to help prevent and combat hair loss.
