Hair Loss Medical Conditions
There are a variety of medical conditions which directly causes hair loss. The most commonly known is perhaps trichotillomania, the disorder characterised by an urge to pull out your own hair, either those on the head, eyebrows, or beards for male patients. Though there are hairpieces and other treatments available to disguise the hair loss, the client will have to seek treatment for the physiological cause of the disorder. Hair loss due to trichotillomania is typically patches of baldness which can take an unusual shape.
The Cranial Prosthesis is bespoke hair piece which is moulded to the area of hair loss to provide an undetectable result. Each is created to match the shape of your scalp and the colour and texture of your existing hair for a natural result. They are lightweight and comfortable enough for daily use, and can be styled with your existing hair.
Hair Loss with Pregnancy
Hair loss can also be result of hormonal changes due to pregnancy, menopause or periods of extreme stress. Pregnant women often increased hair loss as the body prioritises resources and nutrients to the developing fetus and the impact of childbirth. This can also happen during periods of extreme stress and serious/critical illness, where the body will prioritise nutrients to maintain and repair vital systems. In most cases, this hair loss is only temporary and the hair will grow back after 6-12 months.
HAIR LOSS WITH Menopause
Women undergoing menopause will generally experience hair thinning due to the hormonal changes in the body; this is a natural process and there is no need for grave concern unless it’s accompanied by other symptoms such as scalp irritation and pain. If you are worried about the rate at which you are losing your hair, speak with your GP who may refer you to a trichologist to offer solutions such as Volumizer Integration Systems to restore your crowning glory.
female hair loss
For decades, hair loss, known medically as alopecia, is a condition mostly associated with men, genetics and certain illnesses. However, women are also equally as likely to experience hair loss due to a variety of reasons, including genetics, extreme stress or the side effect of a medical treatment.
Hair loss in women can be gradual or sudden, and it can affect severely affect their confidence and self-image, particularly if they are young or at a vulnerable time. If you’ve noticed more hair falling out when you are brushing, or that you can see your scalp more than usual in a specific area, it’s recommended that you seek the advice of a trichologist- a medical professional who specialises in hair loss- to determine the cause.
There are different types of hair loss, including receding hairline, overall thinning or developing patches of baldness, or a mixture of the above. Depending on the cause and type of hair loss, there are several solutions available, including bespoke, undetectable hair pieces which are integrated with your own hair for a seamless solution.
