25% of men start to lose their hair by the age of 21 & 40% of women experience hair loss by age 40.
But for many people experiencing thinning hair or hair loss, the process happens gradually, so may not be noticeable at in the early stages. This often means that in many sufferers the notiable effects of the hair shedding go unnoticed for a long time, until they have lost nearly half of their hair density.
The causes of hair loss
There are many reasons people begin to lose their hair, including:
If you lose hair as a result of genetics and the family battles with Hair Loss, you’ll need medical intervention to restore your hair. Find out about FUT or FUE hair transplant surgery and how this hair transplant procedure helps with thinning hair.
Everyone loses hair — it’s all part of the natural hair growth cycle. Most people lose around 50-100 hairs every day. This may sound like a lot, but it’s based on an average follicle count of 100,000 — so 99.9% of your hair continues to grow.
If you’re concerned that you’re shedding more hair than this, or you’ve noticed substantial hair loss when you wash or brush your hair, you’re probably not paranoid, this is a clear sign that your suffering with sustained hair loss.
Lifestyle-related hair loss
Lifestyle aspects such as stress, diet and hairstyling habits can affect your hair. A stressful lifestyle can affect the rate at which your hair grows, and it can also cause excessive shedding, or falling out in clumps. Diet can also influence the health of your hair follicles and scalp, which can affect hair loss.
Health-related hair loss
Hair loss is a recognised side-effect of some health problems, such as thyroid disorders, autoimmune issues, or skin conditions such as psoriasis. It’s likely that other symptoms would alert you to these types of health concerns, but if you believe your hair loss is not related to any of the factors mentioned above, it could be worth getting it checked by either a Trichologist or a Dermatologist, as it may help to identify an underlying issue sooner.
