Hair is undoubtedly one of the most obvious assets of the fairer sex. Whether short or long, and regardless of the type of it, the hairstyle is an essential part of the look of women. What you do need to know, however, is that hair mass can be subject to minor annoyances during a woman’s life. One of the conditions that affects a large part of the fairer sex is alopecia. It is characterized by hair loss. But how do we fix it?
Identify the different types of hair loss
First, you should know that there are several types of loss it. Indeed, alopecia can appear in different forms, depending on the reasons for the disease. Patients will need to identify the concern they face before tackling the search for an effective and, above all, lasting solution to alopecia. Thus, we can distinguish the following forms of hair loss:
Generally, diffuse alopecia is a manifestation of one or more disorders of the body. Among the origins of this disease, we can notably cite stress, chemotherapy, or radiotherapy, and childbirth, but also an infection. This category of
hair loss is therefore not inherited. Diffuse alopecia is more the result of an endocrine problem such as a metabolic or thyroid disorder, for example. In addition, the disease most often spreads throughout it.
Considered to be the most frequent form of alopecia, androgenetic alopecia results in a progressive and especially permanent decrease in the quantity as well as the quality of the hair.
This type of hair loss can affect both men and women,
although it is caused by a strong inherited sensitivity to male hormones (testosterone).
Androgenetic baldness is manifested in the male patient by a forehead ,and also a bald top while for female patients,
hair loss will be seen especially on the top of the skull.
Also known as “alopecia areata”, circumscribed alopecia is hair loss on a circumscribed part of the skull. In other words, a specific area experiences baldness. Although the causes of alopecia areata are not fully recognized, it is noted that this form of alopecia is due to inflammation of the root of its shaft. This is mainly due to an autoimmune reaction of the organism. On the other hand, it should be stressed that stress is however retained to be one of the psychological factors of this condition.
Congenital alopecia is a category of hair loss that rarely occurs. At its origin, one distinguishes in particular an anomaly of the constitution of it. It is common to speak of scar baldness, because the hair follicles are permanently destroyed. It is therefore impossible for it shaft to regrow one day, once it has fallen.
The most used solutions to treat hair loss
To treat hair loss, in any case for certain categories of alopecia, it is necessary to consult a doctor beforehand, who will be able to refer the patient to an effective treatment based on drugs. Taking anti hair loss food supplements can also be prescribed. These anti loss it food supplements will strengthen among other things ,the fight against hair loss and especially the regrowth of it shaft. These remedies will act mainly on the patient’s deficiencies.
In the case of the more serious forms of alopecia, that is to say, those whose regrowth of the hair is not possible, solutions exist all the same. On the one hand, we have the technique of micrografting which consists in removing and transplanting one by one of the small clusters of hair on the bald area. On the other hand, there are also intralesional corticosteroid injections for hair loss situations where it follicle is not completely destroyed.
Finally, natural remedies are also available to all those suffering from alopecia. It should however be noted that these solutions only apply to the less aggressive forms of alopecia. It is also important that baldness is reversible. We can cite :
- the use of it lotion for hair regrowth,
- cranial self-massage with vegetable oils (sweet almond, coconut, jojoba …) to stimulate regrowth of the hair shaft,
- drink herbal infusions and other plants (sage, bay leaf, burdock, basil, rosemary, fern, etc.).
These grandmother remedies will be used primarily to soothe the patient’s body and also to reduce more or less significantly the psychological factors of loss it, by offering relaxation and relaxation to the person suffering from alopecia.
